How to control the temperature and density in battery cage system?

The control of temperature and density in the chicken cages plays an important role in the successful discovery of health in poultry farming. The emergence of battery cage system is more conducive to chicken farmers. Today in the poultry equipment factory, we will learn to control the temperature and density of the chicken battery cages.


Battery cage system to raising chicken control temperature

(1) into the chick before the control of temperature in the chicken cage for layer

The poultry cage system adopts the whole house to raise chicks. Adjust the insulation equipment in the chicken house before raising chicks. Check radiator and pipe for leakage and no heat phenomenon. Avoid blind spots.

Into the chicken house before heating to 26 deg C, to keep warm in advance. Because cage broilers adopt the method of raising chicks in whole house, the space for raising chicks is larger, so the temperature in the chicken house should be adjusted to avoid the phenomenon of temperature difference being too large.


(2) Control of temperature in chicken house during growing period

The incubation period of laying hens refers to the period from 7 days of age to market, from the incubation period to 0.5℃ per week, and from 21 days of age to market, the temperature is maintained at about 26℃.


(3) Control of temperature in chicken house during brood period

Cage - reared laying hens are reared at high temperature. The incubation temperature was 33℃, then decreased by 0.5℃ every week. This is because chicks at 7 days of age have a low ability to regulate their body temperature. Therefore, the brood house temperature should be kept constant for 7 days of age. Farmers should always check the temperature in the chicken house, to avoid the high and low temperature, resulting in reduced resistance of chicks.



Control density of laying hens in layer battery cages for sale

(1) Density control in chicken house during brood rearing

The combination of whole house rearing and upper cage rearing was adopted for laying hens in battery cage rearing. The number of chicks in each cage is 25. Adopt full house brood so there is no crowding problem.


(2) Density control in chicken house during growing period

The rearing density of cage-raised chickens is related to the season. Low stocking density in summer. Winter stocking density can be appropriately increased. It is generally controlled to feed 8-9 birds per cage.


The above is the poultry equipment manufacturers to share with you the use of battery cage system. We believe that the use of automatic chicken equipment can better develop the poultry industry.
