2SCALE recently rolled out the installation of Smart Brooder at Homerange Poultry Kenya. This move is in line with the 2SCALE goal that aims to ensure the adoption of eco-efficient production practices for target commodities and in this case, the brooding process for Homerange poultry.
Brooding involves supplying chicks with supplemental heat and humidity. During the first weeks of a chick’s life, heat is more important than food. Ideally, a chick may seem fully grown at the time of hatching. However, it is important to note that some of its features like the thermoregulatory, gastro-intestinal and immune system still need further development for the chick to be fully mature.
