Hatchcon has built a new broiler hatchery for Mzuri Sana Chickens in Zimbabwe. The installation included seven used Petersime setters and six hatchers, together with a chiller.
Towards the end of the year ventilation will be realised. The operation has a capacity of 500,000 hatching eggs.
Hatchcon staff much enjoyed working with the people in Zimbabwe. They experienced a friendly and cooperative atmosphere. On one occasion the generator was broke down during the night. Immediately a generator was taken from a private home so that the installation work could go on. Hatchcon technicians even stayed with the families, who even treated them as part of their families.
