Most of the commercially available hatcheries are of higher capacities. They are made for large scale poultry farms. There was a need to develop an egg incubator for the local breed. They need to be of smaller capacities. This product is developed keeping in mind the needs of backyard poultry farming and the adoption of local poultry breeds.
Business Model :
• Useful for farmers, WSHG, rural youth as an allied or full-scale business.
• Capital investment- Rs. 20,000 to 200000 (based on the capacity);
• Operational cost - Rs. 1 to 2/ egg for a batch of 21 days.
• Return-on-Investment (ROI) - 12 to 20 months.
Dissemination Strategies :
• VA conducts Entrepreneurship Development Programs (EDP) for farmers and SHG members.
• The product is promoted through agricultural exhibitions and live demonstrations.
Current Status: Egg incubator is under development. We have made three prototypes and recent completed one order. We are working on some of the issues with solar powdered egg incubator. We are open to orders from customers.
