Abstract: Incubation of poultry egg is very important these days as the demand for chicken is increasing day by day. But the process of hatching eggs by the conventional method is very difficult as well as it consumes much power. In short conventional method of egg hatching requires continuous supply of power. In this paper a new method of solar poultry incubator design is suggested which could be used to hatch eggs from solar pv and hence could reduce the usage of power and can maximize the usage of solar power which is a renewable source of energy. By implementing this method of solar poultry incubator we will be able to reduce the power consumption of the incubator by 75% and the cost involved in the design also yields profit and hence could bring out a revolution in this field.
