Here's our little incubator "BROWER TOP HATCH" (USA brand) hard at work hatching chicks.


60 egg Hexbator from Planet Poultry, fertility testing Shrimani Farm eggs.. 58/60 hatched. great little indubator. (& great eggs !)

And our latest in incubators, I imported 2 Eyle 3 incubators from China.

264 egg capacity each, 88 egg setting each week. The maiden run hatched on 10/12/09, with 85 out of 88, hatching!

 and here it is hatching eggs... !

 I have both of them hatching today 28/12/09  plenty of chicks out so far from both incubators, worth the investment !

Have just hatched another 175 assorted chicks from 190 eggs ! (9/1/10) 


Two little Orpington chicks 8 hours old.

Some of our young chickens, 2010 hatched.


 Here at Shrimani Farm, we use heated towel rails as warm brooders for large numbers of chickens we currently have 7 brooders this size set up and full of young chickens.
