Low hatchability rate experienced by farmers as a result of the use of hens for hatching.
Few numbers of eggs set with the use of hens.
Inability of hens to go through the whole brooding cycle due to fatigue or ill-heath

    

Performance Characteristics and Scope:

at least 1000 eggs set per incubator
Farmers able to hatch about 13 times in a year
Hatchability increased by over 25 percent
Increase in availability of keets for production of guinea fowls
Increase in income
(Ghc6,000-8,000.00
$1,578-$2,105/Annum)
Higher patronage of incubator services by farmers
