How to maintain automatic egg laying equipment?

Farmers want to carry out large-scale, intensive farming is inseparable from automatic poultry farming equipment, automatic egg chicken breeding equipment is a good helper for laying hens to complete chicken farming, now the chicken equipment is very mechanized The years that can be used are also very long, which requires the farmers to carry out regular maintenance and maintenance of the equipment.





1. Automatic feeding machine: When the feeding machine is used, the farmer must pay attention to it. The feeding machine can not put things on it. Otherwise, the motor may be subjected to excessive pressure and burn the motor. When using the feeding machine, it must be guaranteed. Chains and gears have a certain degree of lubrication. Otherwise, lack of lubrication will damage the machine. Farmers should pay attention to regular inspections. The feeders mainly transport the feed by the skin. Therefore, the farmers should check whether the belts are in good condition and the tightness is appropriate. The control box of the feeder will have a large amount of dust due to the dust generated by the feed. If it is long-term, the internal circuit will be short-circuited, and the farmer should clean it regularly.


2, automatic quail egg machine: farmers should pay attention to the correct operation method of the detailed learning equipment when using the automatic quail egg machine, if it is used improperly, it will easily cause damage to the equipment. When using the quail egg machine, be sure to pay attention to the often Disinfection, because the equipment will inevitably leave some chicken droppings, chicken feathers and other things with germs. If you always use equipment that carries germs and does not clean frequently, the quality of the eggs will drop.


3. Automatic cleaning machine: After using the cleaning machine for a period of time in poultry farm cage, the farmers will have the phenomenon of prolonging and prolonging the loosening of the soil. If there is any phenomenon, the farmers should cut off a section and re-weld. The farmers should check regularly. Bearings and rubber rollers, the bearings should be regularly added with butter, and the rubber rollers should be kept tight and not loose. In addition, many farmers have the opportunity to clear the dung, and the farmers will flatten the waste belt at the passive roller. That's it.

How to raise the survival rate of chickens?

Nowadays, all the large-scale farmers carry out intensive farming mode, and all kinds of poultry farming equipment are used for mechanized farming. How to raise the survival rate of chickens in the process of raising is always what farmers want to know, because only the survival rate is high, and farmers can get high benefits. Here is a brief introduction to the farmers to learn how to raise the survival rate of chickens.

1. Do a good job in drug prevention: Increasing the survival rate of flocks is to reduce the prevalence of flocks. Therefore, prevention in all aspects is very important. Drug prevention is critical. Most bacterial diseases rely on drugs. Regularly delivered for prevention purposes. Bacterial diseases and parasitic diseases prevalent in spring mainly include colibacillosis, salmonellosis, chronic respiratory diseases, coccidiosis, etc., and most of these diseases are closely related to age and environmental changes. This requires different medication prevention procedures based on different situations.

2. Create a comfortable growth temperature: During the feeding process, the temperature of the house is controlled by the farmers, which is very important for the growth and survival rate of the flock. In particular, the management of the temperature of the house, when the ambient temperature mutates, when it exceeds a certain limit, it will cause disturbance of the metabolism of the chicken body, suppression of immunity, and even death. Therefore, controlling the temperature is very important for the growth and survival rate of the flock. Farmers should pay attention to the reasonable control according to the temperature of the laying hens and broilers and the different growth stages.

3. To do a good job in chicken farm immunization: immunization should pay attention to Newcastle disease, flu, and spread the disease, and blastocyst is more suitable for hatchery immunization. The immune effect is more reliable with eyedrops, nasal drops, subcutaneous injections, and sprays. There are still many immune holes and problems in drinking water, but many chicken farms are just accustomed to drinking water immunity, which is easy to save.

4. Configure the feed according to the nutrition standard: Only the chickens can reach the standard feed nutrition to ensure the normal growth and survival rate of the chickens. Therefore, farmers should choose reasonable feed ingredients according to the nutritional needs of different stages of the chicken, and pay attention to the quality of the feed. Feed ingredients require fresh and mold-free, pay attention to the storage of feed.

5. Do a good job of ventilation in chicken houses and chicken battery cages: ammonia gas, carbon dioxide and other harmful gases in the chicken house will seriously affect the health of the chickens and reduce the survival rate of the chickens. Reasonable and effective ventilation can remove the harmful gases from the house and remove the fresh air from the house. Therefore, the ventilation of the house is very important. Especially when feeding in winter, farmers should not think about heat preservation, not only to prevent cold insulation, but also to pay attention to ventilation.

The above is the point that the author tells the farmers about how to raise the survival rate of chickens in the process of raising chickens using poultry farming equipment. In addition to paying attention to the above points, farmers should pay attention to the various stages of chicken growth, observe more, and timely find problems in a timely manner to ensure the survival rate of the flock.

About Feeding points of chickens in autumn egg cages

The hot summer is about to pass, the weather is slowly entering the autumn, and the autumn weather will gradually turn cold. For the chicken farms where the layer cages for sale are chickens , it is a good time for the new laying hens to lay eggs, so the laying hens during this period Users should take scientific and reasonable methods to make laying hens produce more eggs, increase egg production performance, and improve the economic benefits of farmers. What are the breeding points of laying hens in autumn egg cages?





1. Adjust the chickens: After entering the autumn, the farmers should pay attention to adjusting the chickens, and the low-yielding laying hens should be eliminated in a timely manner. The weak chickens, the chickens, the chickens with serious sin and the chickens with no therapeutic value should be Elimination will increase feed utilization and increase laying rate of laying hens.

2, increase feed nutrition: After the hot summer, the chickens will be more tired into the autumn, so this period farmers should pay attention to timely adjustment of feed nutrition, after the autumn should feed more animal protein feed, can guarantee that not yet The moulting chicken continues to moult and lay eggs, which promotes the feathered chicken to grow into feathers and restore the eggs as soon as possible.

3, the use of additives: in the process of feeding the laying hens in the fall, farmers can add some additives to improve the laying rate of laying hens. Enhance the body's ability to resist stress and disease, and save feed.

4. Increasing the illumination time: For users who use the open chicken house to raise laying hens, it should be noted that the natural light time will gradually decrease after the autumn, so the farmers should pay attention to moderately supplementing the light. When supplementing the light, the ground light intensity is preferably 3 lux. Turn on the lights twice a day, turn on the lights until dawn at 4 to 5 in the first morning, and turn on the lights until 20 to 21 in the second dark. Turn on the lights during the cloudy days.

5, forced moulting: autumn is the period of laying hens, in order not to affect the economic benefits of farmers, most farmers will choose to force the moulting moulting, forced moulting can promote the simultaneous moulting, and open Production, but pay attention to scientific and effective methods is to ensure the success of laying hens and ensure the key to egg production performance.

6, timely deworming: after entering the fall, farmers should pay attention to the work of deworming, autumn is the best time for egg worms, choose some effective drugs to deworm according to the correct method, give the chickens a safe production surroundings.



The above is the method of breeding the laying hens in the autumn, so that when using the automatic poultry farming equipment to raise chickens, it will be more efficient and rapid, and bring better breeding income.

What is the harm of the poor environment of the farm to the chicks?

The environment of the chicken house is very important for the growth of the chicken. The growth and health of the chicken has been affected by the environment, and the environment is not good, which may cause the chickens to develop diseases in batches. In particular, many farmers now use closed chicken houses, which have higher breeding density and more important environmental problems. If the environment is not good, it will cause harm to the chickens.

1. Hazard performance of low temperature: The chick is just born, has poor resistance, and needs relatively high temperature to ensure health. If the temperature of the brood house at this time is too low, it will cause the chicks to die in large quantities, the chicks will show fluffy, and the piles will be piled up due to the low temperature, and the chicks will have their wings sagged and squeaking. If the low temperature lasts for a long time, it can cause a large number of deaths.

2. High temperature: Although the growth of chicks requires relatively high temperatures, the temperature that continues to be too high will affect the health of the chicks. Temporary high temperature, chicks have certain adaptability and regulation ability, but if the farmers have been keeping the chicks in a high temperature environment for a long time, the body temperature regulation mechanism in the chicken chicken group cannot be resisted. If it exceeds a certain limit, the chick will die. Generally, high-temperature-affected chickens express their mouths and gasp, and they will stay away from the hotter places, the feed intake will be greatly reduced, and the need for water will increase greatly, and the chicks will continue to die. Even if there is no large number of deaths, due to high fever, the growth and development of the chicks will be stagnant due to the decrease in feed intake, and other diseases can be induced.

3. Hypoxia or carbon dioxide poisoning: If the chicks are kept in a closed chicken house, if the farmer does not pay attention to timely and reasonable ventilation, it will easily lead to the phenomenon of carbon dioxide poisoning caused by the lack of oxygen in the house. The method of checking the accumulation of hypoxia and carbon dioxide is the farmer. You can choose to ignite a candle 10 cm from the bottom of the cage. If the candle is not easy to ignite or is quickly extinguished, it means that the house is lack of oxygen or carbon dioxide.

4. Ammonia: The chicken house will produce a large amount of manure every day. If the farmer does not clean the manure in time, it will cause a large amount of ammonia gas to be produced in the manure. When the concentration of ammonia gas exceeds 25ppm, it can stimulate the eye and cause conjunctiva. Inflammation and corneal ulcers can make chicks susceptible to respiratory diseases; when the concentration reaches 80ppm, the appetite of the chicken can be reduced, weight loss, and various diseases can be induced, resulting in batch death of the chicks.

The above is what the author tells the farmers. In the process of using chicken battery cages to raise chicks, the environmental control in the chicken house will cause several hazards to the chicks. It is hoped that farmers can reduce the existence of the above misunderstandings and create a comfortable growth environment for chicks to ensure a good survival rate.

Ways to improve the efficiency of raising chickens in summer

The summer season is a stage in which chickens are more difficult throughout the year, because the summer battery cage for layers temperatures are high and the chickens are a creature without sweat glands. This stage of the flocks is prone to various diseases and high temperature heatstroke in the house. In order to enable farmers to obtain good economic benefits when using chicken equipment for raising chickens in the summer, what are the methods for improving the efficiency of raising chickens in summer?







1. Do a good job of heatstroke prevention and cooling in the chicken house and poultry farming cage equipment. All the ventilation and cooling equipment in the chicken house will be applied, so that the temperature in the chicken house will reach the range suitable for the life of the chicken.

2. Chicken breeding density is appropriate. Planning the density of flock farming is an important part of chicken breeding in summer. If the summer is hot, if the density of the flock is too large, it will easily cause the chicken to suffer from breathing and poor heat dissipation, which will cause the chicken to suffocate and die. Therefore, farmers should arrange the density of the flocks in the summer.

3. Improve the structure of chicken feed. The summer weather is hot and the composition of the chicken feed has to change. In the summer, reduce the energy level in the chicken feed, pay attention to the vitamin content in the chicken feed. Also pay attention to the chickens in the summer season to add sufficient water.

4. Improve the time of the chicken diet. In the summer season, you should choose to feed the chickens in the cool season. Generally, you will choose to feed at night. It is cool from 10:00 to 6:00 in the morning, which is good for chickens. rest.




The above is the way to improve the efficiency of raising chickens in the summer. After all, raising chickens is also to make money, so that the benefits of raising chickens can be improved.

Broiler cage disinfection method

During the feeding process, the broiler chickens do not mess with a batch of chickens, and the broiler cages will leave pathogens and pollute the environment. If these pathogens are not eliminated, it is easy to infect the next batch of chickens. Therefore, do a good job in empty house disinfection, so that each batch of chickens have a clean and hygienic living environment, in order to prevent the circulation of various diseases. The specific disinfection methods are as follows:

1. Clean the battery chicken cages

Keep the house fast, clean up thoroughly. Feeding tools such as drums, water dispensers, plastic nets, light bulbs, thermometers and hygrometers, overalls and other utensils must be moved outside. Thoroughly remove dirt such as chicken manure, feathers, coal ash, etc., clean the roof, walls, doors and windows, etc., so that there is no dust inside.

2. Cleaning the chicken cage

Wash the floor, walls and doors and windows frequently. Soak the tools and tools in the chicken cage with disinfectant, rinse with water and dry. There should be no water in the ground of the chicken cage, and any surface inside the chicken cage should be flushed in place, no dead ends, no dirt attached.

3. Overhaul work

Maintain cage tools, repair nets, service circuits, and heating tools. The tool can at least guarantee to raise a batch of chickens, otherwise it should be replaced, and the damaged bulbs should be completely replaced. It is best to use energy-saving bulbs.

4. Governance environment

Remove the debris from the outside drainage ditch; remove the weeds around the chicken cage; so that the drainage is smooth and does not affect the ventilation. Repair the road outside the house and clean the factory area to avoid chicken droppings, feathers and garbage.

5. Chicken cage disinfection

Move tools and utensils into the cage and close the doors and windows and vents. It is required to be closed and tight without leakage, spray disinfection, ventilation after 10 hours of disinfection, and after 3-4 hours of ventilation, close the doors and windows. Ground disinfection should be sprayed with 3% hot alkali water or lime.

6. Fumigation

Solid formaldehyde and potassium permanganate fumigation method are selected. During the empty house disinfection, no one or animal enters the chicken cage. After fumigation, open the doors, windows and vents 24-36 hours, and fully ventilate.

It is far from enough to do the above. In the daily breeding process, the situation in the poultry farming equipment must be observed frequently, and all preventive measures should be taken. The broiler will be less sick, grow faster, and have higher economic benefits.

Spring egg laying management method

The temperature in the spring begins to rise, the physiological function of the chicken is growing, and various germs are also easy to breed. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to the anti-epidemic and health care work of the chicken in the layer chicken cage .


In the spring, the outside temperature gradually rises, which is suitable for the chickens to lay eggs. When the temperature of the house rises to 15 °C, it is at the peak of egg production (23~40 weeks old), medium term (41~55 weeks old) and late (56~ Chickens at 72 weeks of age have an upward trend in laying eggs. However, as the temperature increases, the feed intake of the flock will decrease. Therefore, farmers must do a good job in the daily management of the chickens:It is necessary to ensure that the chickens are provided with high-quality, balanced and adequate feed, especially for the chickens at the peak of egg production; to ensure the absolute safety of the water source and to ensure adequate drinking water supply, so as not to affect the performance of the laying of the chickens.



The temperature difference between day and night in spring is large, which causes the external temperature to change drastically. It is easy to cause unstable egg production in the flock. The egg production rate fluctuates within 2%~3% within 1 week. Management should be based on ventilation, supplemented by ventilation, timely increase the control temperature of the fan, reduce the operating frequency of the fan, ensure that the temperature is stable and appropriate, and reduce the stress caused by temperature fluctuations. When encountering wind or dusty weather, the distance and quantity of ventilation windows should be properly controlled to reduce the air intake, reduce the wind speed, prevent thief winds from attacking and reduce dust.





In the spring, all things are revived, and the speed of reproduction of bacteria and viruses is accelerated. Especially in the field where chickens have been raised for many years, it is easy to cause infectious bronchitis, Newcastle disease, avian flu and other diseases, which have irreversible effects on laying eggs. Therefore, in the spring, we should pay attention to the growth and decline of infectious virus bronchitis, chicken Newcastle disease, avian influenza and other viral diseases, and timely replenishment to maintain the stability of egg production.


Develop a detailed immunization program and complete the immunization with quality, especially the immunity of avian flu and Newcastle disease, because spring is the high season for both diseases. Some farm households have chosen to reduce ventilation in order to avoid the spring instability factors that cause disease in the flock. It is precisely because of this that the harmful gases in the chicken house and the growth of pathogenic microorganisms have caused a greater harm to the chickens. Spring breeder breeders should develop the habit of opening windows in the daytime, diligently closing the window at night, and observing the temperature regularly. When the morning sun comes out and the temperature rises gradually, the ventilation window or shed cloth can be properly opened to ensure that there is enough fresh air in the house; when the temperature drops in the evening, the ventilation facilities such as small windows are closed. Guarantee the temperature inside the house at night.


When we raising chciken in poultry farming equipment It is necessary to do a good job of disinfecting the environment inside and outside the house and the drinking water pipeline, and reduce the content of harmful substances as much as possible. In order to ensure that the laying performance of the flock is better in the spring, attention should be paid to the improvement of hardware facilities to reduce the impact of stress factors on the flock.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of broiler cages?

In recent years, with the increasing intensification of broiler culture, the use of broiler cages to raise chickens has attracted more and more attention and rapid development in the industry.

Benefits of broiler cages:

1. Broiler rearing equipment can greatly increase the stocking density of the unit building area. For example, in a four-layer overlapping cage, the flat density of the chicken house can reach 100 per square meter. In a traditional broiler house of 12 meters x 100 meters, the ground level is raised from 15,000 to 20,000 per batch. The amount of breeding in each batch can reach 60,000 to 80,000, that is, within the same building area, the breeding amount is increased by more than 4 times.

2. It is possible to carry out group feeding of males and females, make full use of the growth characteristics of broiler chickens of different genders, increase the feed conversion rate, and make the specifications of the listed cockroaches more consistent and increase economic income.

3. Because cage culture limits the activity of broiler chickens and reduces energy consumption, the production cycle of broiler chickens of the same weight is shortened by 12% and feed consumption is reduced by 13%.

4. Chickens are not in contact with feces, and diseases such as coccidia are reduced.

5. No need for litter, saving the cost of litter.

6. Cage raising facilitates mechanized operation, which can improve labor productivity, greatly reduce labor costs, facilitate scientific management, and obtain optimal economic benefits.

The main disadvantages of broiler cages are:

1. One-time investment in poultry farming equipment is large.

2. Chicken drinking water is limited to two nipples, and sometimes there is insufficient drinking water.

3. Three layers of cages, the underlying lighting is insufficient, affecting growth.

4. The incidence of chest and toe disease is high, and the environment and nutritional conditions are high.

Adopting the model of broiler raising and net broiler, the profit of broiler breeding is less and less. In order to further increase the scale and land utilization rate, the breeding effect will be improved through the scale effect. Broiler cages are very advantageous in scale and management. Stereoscopic or stepped cages are quietly emerging. This farming method is the development trend of broiler farming in the future.

How can we disinfect broiler farms?

Disinfection is the physical or chemical method of destroying pathogens that remain on different vectors, thereby cutting off the route of transmission and preventing and controlling the occurrence of infection. Disinfection can prevent the spread of pathogens and infectious diseases. Especially important for broilers raised in chicken cages.



The battery cage for broilers farm disinfection is divided into two types: chicken disinfection and empty house disinfection. The effective disinfection determines the success or failure of the culture. Disinfection is the basic link in the whole feeding process. The following is a specific disinfection method:



Disinfection with chicken is a certain concentration of disinfectant liquid sprayed on chicken houses and poultry farming equipmen. It is an effective way to prevent and cure various chicken diseases. It can not only kill the virus, but also reduce the dust in the chicken house. It purifies the air to prevent the infection and spread of respiratory diseases. At the same time, it can adjust the temperature inside the house. In the summer, the temperature in the house can be adjusted. The chickens can be disinfected frequently, and the chicken manure can be prevented from producing carbon oxide, carbon dioxide and ammonia. And other harmful gases. In addition to the primary disease chicken, the pathogen mainly comes from the chicken inhalation and the introduction of people, cars and objects into the chicken house and then spread to the chickens. In order to control the occurrence of chicken disease in time, it is an important means to do a good job of air disinfection. Disinfection method with chicken: Broiler feeding is basically completed at the end of brooding. When the ventilation is gradually increased, the chicken is disinfected in the chicken house. Generally, the chicken house is 2-3 days after the second week of age. With a backpack sprayer, the spray head will be sprayed upwards, and the inner and the outer step will gradually step back spray. Once every three weeks, it can be used once a day. When entering the five-week age, it is twice a day in the morning and evening. The closed chicken house can be used after the big mouth bottle is added. Place it at the air inlet, and as the air enters the house, the disinfectant enters to achieve the effect of air disinfection. Disinfecting with chicken is generally a non-irritating, non-corrosive disinfectant. The commonly used disinfectant is a disinfectant containing iodine. The pure iodine solution is preferred.







After the broiler is out of the bar, rinse it first, then use 0.5% peracetic acid or a disinfectant containing chlorine to spray the solution as required. Spray it from top to bottom. Close the door and window immediately after spraying. Open the door and window to remove the padding after one day. The aim is to eliminate bacteria and viruses on the air and litter surfaces in the house. Disinfection should be thoroughly cleaned from top to bottom and from left to right. There is no weed, no garbage and no pollutants in the farm. It is necessary to move all the chicken equipment to the outside and wash it with water and then soak it with disinfectant. disinfection. The key to the thorough disinfection of the house is the one-time washing and disinfection. The disinfection must be added to the flushing. The flushing water must use tap water or well water. It cannot be considered as flushing without any drugs or using unclean water to wash the house. Not only does this not kill the bacteria and viruses in the house, but it also allows them to penetrate deep into the ground and cracks in the house.

How to improve the eggshell quality of laying hens?

Farmers who breed laying hens know that the eggshell quality of laying hens is an important indicator of the quality of laying hens. The quality of the eggshell directly determines the breakage rate of the egg and affects the production benefit of the laying hen. The nutritional factors of eggshell quality are mainly the calcium and phosphorus content and proportion in the diet, vitamins, trace elements, electrolyte balance and so on.

1. Ensure the intake of calcium in chickens and the retention time of calcium in the body: Considering the effect of calcium retention time on the quality of eggshells, when the dietary calcium content reaches the theoretical standard, it must also ensure the calcium feed. The particle size (8~12 mesh is good) makes it suitable for chicken absorption and utilization. The experiment proved that: using a full-thickness diet containing 3.5%~4% calcium, the calcium retention in the body after cooking is only 50%. Since the eggshells usually begin to deposit at dusk, the chickens do not get enough calcium supplements at night, which is why the eggshell quality is generally poor when feeding the whole powder diet for a long time. It can be overcome by adding 1% to 1.5% of calcium powder in the diet after 3 pm.

2. Control the effective phosphorus content and the ratio of calcium to phosphorus: the effective phosphorus content in the diet of the laying hen is maintained at about 0.4%, and the eggshell quality is better when the ratio of calcium to phosphorus is 4:1 to 6:1. However, if the effective phosphorus content is too high (0.45% or more), it will cause relatively insufficient calcium and high phosphorus and low calcium.

3. Vitamin supplement: Vitamin D3 is a necessary substance for calcium and phosphorus metabolism in laying hens. It can promote the absorption and conversion of calcium and phosphorus in the intestine, and can overcome the improper proportion of calcium and phosphorus to some extent. Generally, the amount added per kg of feed is 2,000 to 2,500 international units. The quality of eggshells is significantly reduced when vitamin D3 deficiency, failure, or other substances that interfere with vitamin D3 metabolism, such as aflatoxin or other fat-soluble vitamins.

4. Adding trace elements: Manganese and zinc are of particular importance in trace element premixes. At high egg production rates and high stocking densities, at least 70 grams of manganese or an equivalent amount of zinc or slightly higher per ton of feed is required. The magnesium can guarantee the quality of the eggshell, but high manganese will inhibit the absorption of zinc.

5. Maintain electrolyte balance: Chlorine is acidic in chickens, and high levels of chlorine are harmful to eggshells. Because the metabolic acid produced by high chlorine inhibits carbonic anhydrase, hinders the conversion of bicarbonate to carbonate; it also affects calcium and phosphorus metabolism in chickens. Sodium and potassium are alkaline in chickens and can be substituted with each other in a ratio of 1:1 to counteract the effect of excess chlorine in the diet containing normal amounts of sodium and potassium on the eggshell. Studies have shown that in the diet with normal calcium and phosphorus content, baking soda can be used instead of 0.1%~0.5% salt to effectively regulate the acid-base balance in the body, reduce the eggshell breakage rate, and add 0.3%~1% baking soda. Improve the hardness of the eggshell.

The above is how to improve the eggshell quality of laying hens when using chicken cages to raise chickens. I hope to help farmers.
