For chickens, the management of the chicks is very important in chicken battery cages. Whether a chicken farm can be scaled up, the chicks play a big role. In the later period, if the chickens to be sold are profitable, then the brooding can be more than heart. Here are six points to know about raising chicks and chicken farmers.
1.Disease prevention and control
Chicks have some common diseases and should be prevented in time to prevent the disease from happening.
2. Careful care
In all cases of chickens, chicken farmers should pay more attention to them, such as mental state, feces, drinking and eating, etc., in order to find abnormalities and timely treatment. At the same time, care should be taken to avoid all possible deaths from chicks.
3. Chicken house environment
Pay attention to the light, humidity and temperature of the house. Light directly affects the normal growth activities of chicks, so it should be arranged reasonably; in order to prevent dehydration of chicks, chicks within 10 days of age generally need higher humidity; chicks after 10 days of age need to reduce humidity in order to prevent coccidia; The temperature is very sensitive, it is easy to heatstroke, it is easy to get together and squeeze, so it is appropriate
4. Feeding density
Some chicks appear to be paralyzed, which may be caused by excessive stocking density; in addition, too high density can cause harmful gases to increase. So pay attention to the density of brooding.
5. Strict disinfection
The disinfection work before entering the chicken must be done well. If it is self-incubating, the utensils and eggs should be disinfected during the incubation period.
6. Pay attention to drinking water and eating
When the chicks enter the chicken house, they often have been going through a long time, because there will be a vaccine, shipment and other processes after the shell is released, so you should drink water in time after entering the chicken. The drinking water of the chicks should be cleaned. Generally, cool whites can be used. After drinking for four or five hours, you can arrange to eat.
