How to make the chicken cages dry after heavy rain?

Farmers know that chickens are afraid of moisture. They like to live in a dry environment. In summer, rainstorms are prone to cause high humidity in the air. If the poultry chicken cages are not well ventilated, it is easy to cause mildew of feed and litter. This will be conducive to the multiplication of a variety of pathogens and make chickens sick. Therefore, feeding and management must be particularly meticulous. In general, the following points must be noted:

Replace the litter in time. Days of overcast and rain caused prolonged dampness. Make the litter in the chicken house damp and moldy, and then it is easy to cause the chickens to get sick.

The rain causes high humidity in the chicken house and the air is dirty. Therefore, it is necessary to strengthen the ventilation of the chicken house. Use exhaust fans to exhaust the dirty and harmful gases in the chicken house.

Feed less frequently. Feed the feed reasonably and try to eat the feed that was fed at the same time, so as to prevent the feed from being contaminated by mud and rainwater in the trough. Leftover materials should also be removed in time to ensure cleanliness and hygiene.

Control the amount of water you drink. Excessive humidity in the chicken house in rainy weather can easily inhibit the water metabolism of the chicken body. If the chicken drinks too much water, it is easy to cause enteritis. As a result, the chicken flock is diarrhea, and the humidity in the chicken house is continuously increased, which causes the disease to spread. Therefore, in the rainy season, the water consumption of chickens should be properly controlled, and the water should be changed frequently to avoid infection after the chickens drink dirty water.

The above is what chicken farmers should do in heavy rain. Farmers who want to better raise chickens can use automatic poultry cage equipment. Its supporting automatic battery cage system can make farmers more worry-free and better management, like encountering extreme weather.

Importance of drinking quality water for poultry chicken

As a nutrient, water, like feed, plays an important role in maintaining the health and production performance of livestock and poultry. So When using poultry chicken cages, how should farmers ensure the quality of the water?

 Under normal circumstances, we will not drink the water if the water quality is not up to the requirement of being drinkable. In fact, it is the same for chickens. Many factors affect water quality, the most important of which are the water source, the number of bacteria, hardness and total dissolved solids. If the water supplied to the chicken house is not well managed, it may spread some pathogenic microorganisms to the flock. The drinking water system of the chicken house can provide an ideal environment for the growth of bacteria.

The chicken farm should collect water samples at least twice a year, and collect the microbial and mineral content of the water. Water samples should be collected from the start and end of the drinking water system. To ensure that the water is fresh when sampling, you can run the drinking system for a few minutes before sampling.

The pH of the water also affects the water quality and the amount of water the chickens drink. The pH of purified water is 7. If the pH of the water exceeds 8, the chickens will reduce their water intake and feed intake, resulting in a decline in the performance of the chickens. If the pH of the water drops below 6, the use of the drinking water system for vaccination and the delivery of medicines will be adversely affected.

Drinking nipples used in the drinking system. It is important to test the amount of water provided by the drinking nipples and to equip the number of drinking nipples reasonably to ensure that the chickens can drink enough water. Using drinking nipples, it is recommended to rinse and disinfect the drinking system between different batches of chickens.

Solve the drinking water quality problems in production, and filter and disinfect the water source water quality problems. Solve the problem of drinking water quality in production, and filter and disinfect the problem of water source water quality. Farmers should pay attention to the supply of drinking water to the chickens in the  battery chicken cages, and understand the drinking water needs of the chickens in the chicken farm, so as to realize the efficient feeding and management of the chickens.

Introduction of chicken laying cage

When using layer chicken cages to raise layer hens, chickens are generally put into the cage from 8 weeks of age, and are eliminated from the cage until the 72 weeks of age have completed a production cycle. Therefore, under the good environmental conditions of the chicken house, it is also necessary to have a reasonable structure of the chicken cage to enable the laying hens to exert their highest production efficiency.

The size of the layer cage must be able to meet its certain activity area, feeding position and height. At the same time, in order to make the laid eggs roll out of the cage in time, the cage bottom should have a certain inclination. According to the above requirements, the arrangement of layer cages must be composed of many small single cages. There are several ways to raise 3 or 4 animals in each small cage, and there are several ways to raise 6 or 8 animals.

The size of the single cage of a layer cage is generally 380-450 mm in front height, 300 mm in rear height, 9-10 degrees in the bottom of the cage, 350-600 mm deep in the cage, and the egg collecting trough outside the cage is 120- 160 mm. The width of the cage depends on the feeding position. The feeding position of each chicken is 100-110 mm.

There are two forms of manufacturing and installation of single cages, namely, integral and assembled. The integral type is to form a single cage of several units into a whole. It is characterized by easy installation, but consumes materials, is difficult to handle and is easy to deform after being made. The assembly type adopts an integral cage frame, and there are two forms of manufacture and installation of the single cage, namely the integral type and the assembly type. The integral type is to form a single cage of several units into a whole. It is characterized by easy installation, but consumes materials, is difficult to handle and is easy to deform after being made. Assembled type is to use the overall cage frame. After the overall cage frame is installed, hang the cage nets and serve. It is characterized by neat installation, easy replacement and maintenance. The assembly type is more common in actual production.

Each fan cage net of a single cage is generally made by spot welding of cold drawn steel wire, but the function of each fan cage net is different, and their material thickness and mesh size have different requirements.

The width of the cage door of the poultry layer breeding cage is determined by the width of the single cage. Generally, a vertical fence is welded with a 3 mm diameter metal wire, with a spacing of 50-60 mm. The cage door is 400 mm high, and its lower edge should be 50-55 mm away from the bottom net to leave the egg-going space; or an egg guard 50 mm away from the lower edge can be placed in the cage to prevent the egg trap from being trapped. Eggs are pecked by chickens, and chicken manure leaks into troughs and sinks.

Restricted feeding method for broiler cages

When using broiler battery cages to raise chickens, there are many ways to restrict feeding, such as limited time method, limited method and limited quality method.

a. Time-limited method: It is to control the feed intake by controlling the feed time of chickens, so as to achieve the purpose of weight control and sexual maturity. Broiler cages are specifically divided into the following categories:

Daily feeding limit: A certain amount of feed and drinking water are fed every day, and the number of feedings and the time of each feeding are specified. This method has less stress on chickens. Some people use the method of feeding 15 to 30 minutes every 2 to 3 hours, which can improve the feed conversion rate.

Restricted feeding every other day: that is, feeding for 1 day, stopping for 1 day, and concentrating the amount of feed for two days (48 hours) on one day. Sprinkle the feed evenly in the trough on the feeding day, remove the leftovers in the trough on the feeding day, and do not give other food, but provide enough water, especially on hot days. This method is more stressful to chickens and can be used to limit feeding for chickens with overweight.

Weekly feeding: stop feeding 1 or 2 days a week. The method of stopping feeding for two days is: stop feeding on Sundays and three times, and feed the feed in a balanced manner during the week for 5 days. This method not only saves feed, but also reduces stress. It is often used to limit the feeding of egg-type chickens during the growing period.

b. Limitation method: It is to stipulate the feed amount of chickens daily, weekly or at a certain stage. When limited feeding is implemented, laying chickens are generally fed 80% to 90% of normal feeding. This method is easy to operate and is widely used, but the diet must be fully priced and does not limit the chicken's feeding time.

c. Quality limitation method: It is to limit the nutritional level of the diet so that certain nutrients are lower than the normal level. Broiler cages generally use low-energy diets, low-protein diets, low-energy low-protein diets, low-lysine diets, etc., which reduce the growth rate of chickens and delay sexual maturity. This method is often used in extensive chicken farming in rural areas.

The above are some feeding methods when using poultry breeding equipment to raise chickens. Experienced farmers may also have their own exclusive methods. I hope everyone can discuss together on the knowledge of chicken raising.

What are the automatic chicken breeding equipment?

The farming industry has been in the era of mechanized equipment farming. Both pigs and chickens are raised with farming equipment. Especially the chicken industry has developed rapidly in recent years. There are many chicken farming equipment, and there are several types of equipment. The work of fully automatic chicken breeding equipment has been realized, which can make chicken users more easily and efficiently complete the work, improve the growth and production capacity of chickens, and increase the benefits for farmers. Then what are the chicken breeding equipment? Manufacturers of fully automatic chicken breeding equipment will come to summarize and share for the farmers.

 

 


1. Chicken cage equipment: Chicken cages are the basis for farmers to realize equipment breeding. Chicken cages are divided into three types: layer cages, broiler cages and brooding cages according to the type of chicken group. They are suitable for raising layers, broilers and chicks. In addition, the use of chicken cage breeding can increase the number of chickens for breeding, and putting chickens in cages can make breeding and management easier for farmers. There are many advantages, and it has gradually become the main way of raising chickens.


2. Heating equipment: heating equipment is mainly used for heat preservation and heating of chicken coops in winter. There are many equipment that can heat preservation and heating, such as boilers, electric heating, water heating, coal stoves, and even fire kangs, floor kangs and other heating methods. However, most of the large-scale farmers now choose boiler equipment for the insulation of the chicken house.


3. Ventilation equipment: All chickens must be enclosed in a closed chicken house. Ventilation is done by ventilation equipment. Ventilation equipment refers to fans. According to the direction of airflow in the house, it can be divided into horizontal ventilation and Two types of longitudinal ventilation. The use of fan equipment for ventilation has good controllability, saving time and effort, and high efficiency.


4. Water supply equipment: Water is an indispensable substance for chickens, so drinking water equipment is one of the necessary equipment. From the perspective of saving water and preventing bacterial contamination, the nipple drinker is an ideal water supply equipment, which can realize laying broilers Automatic drinking water, without the need for farmers to manually feed water, high efficiency, but farmers must be careful to choose a water-proof drinking fountain.


5. Feeding equipment: There are many ways to feed chickens, but most farmers now choose to use an automated feeder. The feeder is specially designed for feeding cages and can feed three layers. Up to the five-layer cage, the feeder has the advantages of unique structure, practicality, time and labor saving, uniform feeding, low loss and convenient maintenance.


6. Manure removal equipment: Generally, small farms will choose to manually clean manure by themselves, but compared with large and medium-sized farms, they will not choose manual manure removal. Large-scale farms need to hire professional people to carry out it, which is a waste of cost. Farmers will choose to use an automated manure cleaning machine to complete it, which can realize unmanned management and automatically clean manure on a regular basis.


7. Egg collection equipment: chicken farms with a high degree of mechanization use conveyor belts to automatically collect eggs, which has high efficiency and reduces the labor of egg pickers, but increases labor efficiency, thereby achieving cost-saving effects.

Intelligent lighting for laying hens cannot be less

As we all know, light is an indispensable key factor in poultry production. Proper lighting conditions have a positive impact on the growth and development of poultry bodies, and can promote the normal development of the body's genetic potential. With the current economic profit of laying hen farming continues to decline, because laying hens are raised in chicken cage. In view of the important role of light environment in the growth process of laying hens, how to reduce the cost of light in production, ensure the healthy growth and development of chickens, and improve the survival rate has become a key technology.

 

The traditional lighting technology is a constant incandescent lamp or LED lamp. As the chicken ages and production conditions change, the light intensity and light time must be adjusted manually. In the intelligent lighting system for layer breeding, cold cathode energy-saving lamps are used as the light source, and it is equipped with light sensors and intelligent control terminals, which realizes the light effect of simple management and energy saving.

  

Intelligent lighting technology is based on the organic combination of cold cathode fluorescent lamps and intelligent control. This technology adds sensor systems, intelligent control systems, cold cathode fluorescent lamps and other equipment to the breeding process, and through the automatic monitoring and intelligent regulation of the lighting environment in the poultry farms, it finally realizes the scientific compensation in the poultry farms. Light.

 

 

 


The cold cathode energy-saving lamp used in the technology has rich colors, small tube size, light weight, simple structure, quick start at low temperature, small surface temperature rise, high brightness, high efficiency, and easy processing into various shapes (straight tube shape) , L-shaped, U-shaped, ring, etc.), long service life, good color rendering, uniform light emission, etc. When reaching the same lumens, the power consumption is only about 10%-20% of incandescent lamps; compared with fluorescent lamps, the luminous efficiency is slightly lower, but the life span is four to five times that of fluorescent lamps, and the mercury content in the tube is extremely low or It is completely mercury-free, avoiding the pollution problem of mercury vapor; compared with LED lamps, it has good color rendering performance, no glare, and low price.

 

The light time and intensity of brooding period, rearing period, and laying period are different. In the past, the replacement of light bulbs was done manually in the production process. And this technology uses an intelligent controller to adjust the frequency of alternating current, thereby changing the light illuminance changes, achieving a light bulb "fixed" the entire production process, greatly reducing the human and material input in the breeding process. Effectively increase production capacity, the application of intelligent lighting system can increase the laying rate of laying hens and the rate of weight gain of broilers by 1%, which can bring considerable economic benefits.

What are the advantages of stacked layer breeding cages?

With the development of the breeding automation trend, the breeding mode of stacked layer cages has been widely recognized by the majority of layer farms because of its many advantages such as increasing the breeding volume and saving breeding space.

Due to the extremely high space utilization rate of the breeding method of battery layer farming cages, the chicken manure can also be cleaned in layers, which not only improves the utilization rate of chicken manure, but also reduces the degree of environmental pollution. The chicken house with the chicken raising equipment of the stacked layer cage reduces labor intensity and improves productivity. Although stacked cages have many advantages, the premise is that we must know how to use them? How to manage?

When farmers use stacked layer cage equipment to raise chickens, they need to ensure the service life of the equipment. When we use it, we need to lubricate the transmission parts such as the transmission sprocket and gears once a month. Then it is necessary to clean the surface of the egg roller and the fecal roller in time to prevent the accumulation of debris from causing the fecal belt to burst or break the roller shaft.

Clean up the impurities in the soft and broken egg collection tray in time, and the ventilation system needs to be adjusted appropriately for side wall ventilation and roof ventilation according to the season. Always keep the lighting bulb clean to prevent affecting the light intensity.

In the process of cleaning, if only the driving roller rotates and the manure conveying belt does not move during manure removal, it is likely that the manure removal belt is stuck due to excessive chicken manure. This situation is to remind us that we should run the fecal conveyor regularly to remove foreign objects. If the chicken manure on the manure belt is thin, it may be that the drinking fountain is leaking, the connection of the sink is not well sealed, or some chickens are diarrhea. After this happens, it is necessary to change the drinking fountain, apply sealant to the joint, and administer medicine for treatment.

1. The layered layer cage chicken raising equipment with reasonable structure design has stable performance during use. Moreover, the operation of the automatic chicken breeding equipment is very simple, and it is sturdy and durable. It uses a hot-dip galvanizing process and has a service life of 15-20 years.

2. The stacked layer cages sold by high-quality poultry breeding equipment suppliers have many advantages. Among them are automatic feeding, drinking water, cleaning manure, picking eggs, centralized management, automatic control, saving energy, improving labor productivity, and the feed-to-egg ratio is less than 2.2kg/kg.

3. The high density of the equipment for raising chickens in layer cages is greatly improved, saving the land for raising chickens.

4. The structure of the automatic driving feeding system is reasonable, and the height of the hopper can be adjusted according to the feed intake of the chicken, and the feeding amount can be adjusted.

5. Conveyor belt type manure removal, high cleaning efficiency, no manure residue, reducing environmental pollution, and high recycling rate of chicken manure.

6. Adopting cycloid pin reducer as power, stable operation, low noise and long life.

The ultimate goal of chicken farmers is to obtain good economic benefits, so in recent years, many farmers have been constantly looking for scientific breeding methods to breed broiler chickens. In recent years, after a comprehensive comparison in many aspects, in the broiler breeding industry, farmers generally use broiler cages to raise chickens. The following is mainly to tell the farmers about the economics of using broiler cages to raise chickens for the farmers. benefit.

 

 

 

 

1. The use of broiler cages to raise chickens increases the number of breeders, which can increase the farmers' income from the sale of chickens in the later period.

 

2. The use of broiler cages to raise chickens has less floor space, which can make full use of the advantages of space, so that farmers can save the use of chicken coop area and reduce farmers' rental costs.

 

3. When using broiler cages to raise chickens, the farmers can more intuitively observe the living conditions of the chickens, so that the farmers can discover the various conditions of the chickens in time, so that the farmers can find the situation in time and take measures to avoid unnecessary Economic losses.

 

4. When using broiler cages to raise chickens, the flocks can be isolated from the feces, which reduces the chance of the flocks coming into contact with the feces, thereby reducing the occurrence of flock diseases, and saving a lot of medical costs for the farmers.

 

5. When using broiler cages to raise chickens, the activity of the flock will be greatly reduced, and the feed conversion rate will be improved, which can save farmers a lot of feed costs.

 

6. When using broiler cages to raise chickens, you can avoid the phenomenon of flock pecking, which can effectively prevent damage to the flock.

 

 The above points are the considerable economic performance when using broiler cages to raise chickens. It is hoped that through today's story, farmers can have a more comprehensive understanding and understanding of the advantages

How to choose automatic poultry chicken breeding equipment?

1. How to choose automatic chicken raising equipment? Automatic chicken raising equipment is divided into two types, one is step automation equipment, the other is battery automation equipment.

2. Now 80%—90% of chicken farmers use stepped chicken cages, and most chicken farms do not use automated equipment, but rely on manual operations. But every chicken farmer has also seen stepped automation equipment. Some of the stepped automation equipment is backward in technology, and the design is very unreasonable, and it does not meet the automation standards. Therefore, today I will introduce to you the stacked automation equipment in the automated chicken breeding equipment.

3. Battery automation equipment is stacked one after another. This kind of cage must have highly accurate automation equipment to complete the entire chicken raising process. Automatic chicken raising equipment must have more advanced production technology to ensure the durability of the cage. At present, there are three production process cages on the market for chicken farmers to choose.

4. Cold galvanizing is also called electro-galvanizing. It has a thin galvanized layer and has a life span of 6 to 7 years. It can be used as an ordinary artificial breeding cage, but if it is an automatic equipment cage, it must not be considered.

5. Hot-dip galvanizing is also called hot-dip galvanizing. It has a thick galvanized layer. The layer collector is not easy to rust and has high durability. It can be used for 15-20 years, but the disadvantage is that it is not immersed in the galvanizing bath. Even, how to choose automatic chicken raising equipment: it will cause many burrs, which is also an industry problem. It is easy to scrape the chicken feathers, and it is easy to pierce the freshly laid eggs. The damage rate of the eggs is relatively high and cannot be used as brand eggs.

6. Electrostatic spraying is also called electrostatic spraying. It uses powdered paint to be attracted to the cage through the attraction of high-voltage static electricity. Automatic chicken raising equipment will form a high corrosion resistance phosphate film between the chicken cage and the paint. The paint is fixed on the surface of the chicken coop and will not fall off easily, even if it is bent at random 360 degrees, the chicken equipment parts will not be corroded under the action of strong acid, and it is durable and can be used for 15-20 years. With the electrostatic adsorption, its surface is smooth and beautiful without burrs.

7. Due to the smooth surface, high-quality branded eggs can be made, making the eggs more valuable and increasing the brand value of the chicken farm.

8. Therefore, the electrostatic sprayed chicken cage system can be a material that is automatically laminated.

About some advantages when using stacked layer cages

With the development of the animal husbandry industry, more and more people have joined the breeding industry. Nowadays, most farmers in the chicken industry choose to use stacked layer cage equipment for their own chicken farms when they raise layer hens. Because most farmers know that using stacked layer cages can not only bring convenience and efficiency to their own breeding, but also have very considerable economic benefits. Although so many people have chosen stacked layer cage breeding equipment, few farmers understand the specific advantages of using stacked layer cage breeding. Therefore, let’s give the farmers a detailed introduction below. Here are the specific advantages of stacked layer cages.

 

 

 

1. The production process of stacked layer cages is a new hot-dip galvanizing process. The use of the new hot-dip galvanizing process can not only increase the service life of the chicken cage, but also save the farmers the funds for replacing the cage during the breeding process, which is also a considerable expense.

 

2. The surface of the layered layer cage mesh is very smooth, and the smooth surface is not easy to cause damage to the cute chickens, so that it can effectively prevent the chicken feet from being injured and infected.

 

3. The cascading layer cage adopts a push-pull cage door, which can facilitate the farmers to catch and release the layers and reduce the stress response of the flock.

 

4. The cascading layer cage has a small footprint and makes full use of the space. This can save the farmers the use of the chicken house area, and can also prevent the chickens from contacting the chicken house manure, effectively reducing the occurrence of chicken diseases.

 

5. The cascading layer cage has good scalability. Farmers can adjust the size of the site according to their actual needs. You can also add some automatic feeding, drinking and manure removal equipment, so that the automation of breeding can be realized.

 

The above is a summary of the advantages arising from the use of stacked layer cages. I hope that through today’s summary and sharing, farmers who often use stacked layer cages can have a more comprehensive understanding of this equipment. Oh and master.

About the introduction of layer cages in chicken breeding equipment

Layer chicken cages are used to raise layer hens, generally from 8 weeks of age, into the cage, after raising to 72 weeks of age to complete a production cycle, they are eliminated from the cage. Therefore, with the good environmental conditions of the chicken house, a well-structured chicken cage must be provided to enable the laying hens to exert their highest production efficiency.

The size of the layer cage must be able to meet its certain activity area, feeding position and height. At the same time, in order for the laid eggs to roll out of the cage in time, the bottom of the cage should have a certain slope. According to the above requirements, the arrangement of layer cages must be composed of many small single cages. There are several ways to raise 3 or 4 animals in each small cage, and there are several ways to raise 6 or 8 animals.

The size of the single cage of a layer cage is generally 380-450 mm in front height, 300 mm in rear height, bottom slope of 9-10 degrees, depth of the cage 350-600 mm, and the egg collecting trough outside the cage is 120- 160 mm. The width of the cage depends on the feeding position. The feeding position of each chicken is 100-110 mm.

There are two forms of manufacturing and installation of single cages, namely, integral and assembled. The integral type is to form a single cage of several units into a whole. Its characteristic is that it is easy to install, but it consumes materials, and it is difficult to handle and easy to deform after being made. The assembly type adopts an integral cage frame, and there are two forms of manufacture and installation of the single cage, namely the integral type and the assembly type. The integral type is to form a single cage of several units into a whole. Its characteristic is that it is easy to install, but it consumes materials, and it is difficult to handle and easy to deform after being made. Assembled type is to use the whole cage frame. After the whole cage frame is installed, hang the net of each fan cage and serve. It is characterized by neat installation, easy replacement and maintenance. The assembly type is more common in actual production.

Each fan cage net of a single cage is generally made by spot welding of cold drawn steel wire, but the function of each fan cage net is different, and their material thickness and mesh size have different requirements.

The side nets and the back nets are mainly used as the spacing between the cages, and metal wires with a diameter of 2 to 2.5 mm can be distributed in a horizontal grid. The thick wire used in the warp direction is arranged on the outside, with an interval of 100 to 200 mm; the thin wire used in the weft direction is arranged on the inner side with an interval of 30 mm, which can prevent the chickens from pecking each other.

The bottom net not only has to bear a certain weight, but also has to drop the feces without dropping the eggs, and it must have a certain degree of flexibility, so that the eggs are not easy to break when laying, and the chickens have a certain sense of comfort when moving. Millimeter wires are distributed in vertical grids. Use thick wires in the warp direction on the surface with an interval of 22-25 mm; in the weft direction, use thin wires at the bottom with an interval of 50-60 mm, so that the eggs can be rolled out smoothly along the slope of the warp direction.

The width of the cage door of the poultry equipment chicken cage depends on the width of the single cage. Generally, a vertical fence is welded with a 3 mm diameter wire, with a spacing of 50 to 60 mm. The cage door is 400 mm high, and its bottom edge should be 50-55 mm away from the bottom net to leave the egg-going space; or an egg guard 50 mm away from the bottom edge can be placed in the cage to prevent the egg trap from being trapped. Eggs are pecked by chickens, and chicken manure is discharged into troughs and sinks.

What mineral elements are needed when using layer cages to raise chickens?

When using layer chicken cages to raise chickens, farmers need to pay attention: the mineral elements in the chicken body are about 4%, most of which are in the bones and teeth. The minerals in eggs account for 1.7%, most of which are concentrated in the shell. Therefore, the mineral requirements of chickens, especially for laying hens, are quite high. There are many types of mineral elements, but 14 are commonly used in chicken production, of which 7 are calcium, phosphorus, sulfur, magnesium, chlorine, potassium, and sodium, which are used in large amounts. However, iron, copper, manganese, zinc, iodine, selenium, and diamond are used in small amounts and are called trace elements.

In the past, chicken farming was mostly free-range, and the soil outside was rich in mineral elements, so chickens could eat freely. At present, the chicken industry has gradually developed into large-scale intensive breeding, which is often found in the breeding process of using layer cages to raise chickens. Deficiency occurs due to lack of a certain substance, so mineral elements are increasingly being valued and used by people.

Among these elements, chickens require the most calcium and phosphorus. The main role of calcium and phosphorus is to form bones, teeth and eggshells. Calcium is necessary for blood clotting and for normal heart function along with sodium and potassium. Chicks suffer from schondrosis when they are calcium-deficient; when layers are calcium-deficient, their eggshells become thinner, reducing egg production, and even shellless eggs appear.

Phosphorus participates in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats and maintains the body's acid-base balance. When phosphorus is deficient, chickens lose their appetite and grow slowly. In severe cases, joints harden and bones are fragile.

Sodium can keep chicken digestive juice alkaline and help digestive enzyme activity.
The vertical function is to maintain the acidity of the gastric juice. In the absence of salt, chickens will have bad habits such as pecking the anus and eating blood. The weight and egg weight of the laying hens will be reduced, and the egg production rate will decrease.

Manganese is related to the growth of bones and the reproduction of chickens. When manganese is insufficient, the bones of the chicks are underdeveloped, and they are prone to bend legs and hinder growth. The lack of manganese in adult chickens results in low egg production and hatchability and thinner eggshells.

The content of zinc in chickens is very small, but it is widely distributed. Bone, hair, liver, pancreas, kidney, muscle and enzymes all contain zinc.

When chickens are deficient in zinc, their growth is slow, feathers and skin are stunted. In severe cases, their feet are short, the surface is scaly, and there is dermatitis.

Iron exists in certain oxidases in hemoglobin and tissue cells. Anemia is prone to occur when iron is insufficient.

Copper and iron participate in the formation of hemoglobin. When the feed is lacking in copper, iron is malabsorption and anemia also occurs.

Iodine is related to thyroid function, and iodine deficiency can cause goiter.

Selenium can treat chicken's exudative diathesis, pancreatic degeneration and turkey muscular stomach and myocardial dystrophy. The United States and Canada generally recommend adding selenium to the diet of chicks.

The above is the trace elements that farmers need to pay attention to when using commercial poultry farming equipment to raise chickens. Please raise them carefully.
