Six revolving tubes filled with eggs; the Hexahatch Revolution Incubator design is done and we will be building it tomorrow as part of a workshop. The design is open source on the wiki, complete with bill of materials and implementation plan. The cost looks to be about $70. Here’s a quick animation of the design and some pictures below:
The 15 chickens at Factor e Farm are producing about enough eggs for me and Marcin, so with more people we will need a much larger flock to be egg self-sufficient.The Hexahatch can hold about 42 eggs at a time, and chickens take 21 days to hatch, so we could be getting up to 42 new chicks a month for the rest of this year!
