The electrical system plays an important role in chicken farming, especially for breeding chicks that use egg incubators and for heating and lighting in the cages of the day old chicken (DOC). In this community service program, a hybrid electricity system for integrated cages at the center of a chicken farm in Nagari Salareh Aia is proposed. This integrated cage consists of a DOC cage, breeding cage, rearing cage and an egg hatching machine for DOC breeding. The proposed hybrid electricity system consists of a 400 WP solar power plant, 200 Ah battery and a power source from PLN. This hybrid electrical system is designed to maintain the continuity of electricity supply in integrated cages, because there are some equipment that should not be interrupted, such as for hatching machines during hatching, heating and lighting for DOC cages and so on. The results of experiments at community service locations show that the proposed hybrid electrical system has been successful in maintaining continuity of electricity supply for integrated chicken coops, so that the egg hatching machine can work well during hatching. Likewise, DOC cage temperature can be kept constant according to DOC cage temperature standards.
