Chicken hatchery: Innovative farmer invents large-capacity kerosene egg incubator

One of this week’s stories describes an innovative low-cost chicken brooder, designed to keep chicks warm with the heat produced when part of the unit is used for cooking. In November 2010, we published a script in Farm Radio Weekly that presented an egg incubator invented by a poultry farmer. The incubator can hatch 600 eggs in 21 days. Both are interesting innovations, designed by farmers, which other farmers could adapt and use to improve their poultry business.
