How to heat the cage with coal

In my country, the electricity does not reach the village. That is why it is difficult to heat the broiler cage or chicken cage. They prefer to use coal or wood to heat the chicken especially small chicken. It keeps the cage warm.

They make a zinc tube that is one meter height. There is some porous or holes in the side of tube. Surely, they cover the tube with the fence so the chick cannot touch the tube that could kill the chick.

However this why is not health. The smoke that is result from coal burn could harm to people and chicken. For the long term, the smoke can cause cancer and other diseases. The owner should provide good ventilation too so the smoke will not poison the chicken.

Some farm also provide coal heater to the coops. There are some company provide big coal heater.
