  "description": "<p>The incubation technology is having been an efficient means of producing chicks from eggs. The incubation technology does not require the service of hen before the chick is obtained from the laid eggs. The process automatically transforms eggs into chicks with some required number of days. Various types of egg incubator have been designed and fabricated by many researchers using different approach. This paper presents a more efficient incubator that was fabricated mechanically and powered by a solar energy. The fabricated poultry incubator is portable, user friendly, not expensive, and has a very low cost of maintenance. Solar energy was incorporated to take care of any power failure of electricity. The fabricated incubator was evaluated for its efficiency. The temperature supplied by the solar source was about 37&deg;C which is enough to heat up the incubator to hatch the eggs. The average range of value obtained for the humidity was 56.15&deg;C and the angle of tilt to rotate the tray was 46.58&deg;. 95% of the eggs were fully hatched.</p>",
