Like many other food items, eggs are still imported into Afghanistan, mainly from Pakistan — despite high demand. In six months, the Baharak unit generated income of 200,000 AFN (US$ 4,032) and the Jurm unit made 194,000 AFN (US$ 3,911) from the sale of day-old chicks and eggs. With their earnings, the farmers have been able to buy locally manufactured incubators to further increase productivity.
