The problem of transporting chicken and eggs arises in the winter months when heavy snowfall does not allow access by road. Heating poultry farms during the winter months cannot be done with fuel wood as it is not available and fossil fuels are expensive and polluting.
In order to overcome these problems, solar poultry farms are being built, using passive solar heating techniques. The solar poultry sheds have the same design and principles of the trombe technology. Each room has a large glass window and side ventilation. A green house covers the south side to warm the rooms making the conditions more conducive for the chicks.
