Main points of broiler cage chicken feeding and management

For broiler breeding, most farmers are now using stacked broiler cages for breeding. The use of broiler cages to raise chickens is more conducive to the management of the chickens by the farmers, and it is also more conducive to the rapid growth of the chickens. However, if the farmers do not use scientific and reasonable breeding methods to raise chickens, it will be difficult for the chickens to grow well. Today, I will give a detailed account of several key breeding points that farmers should pay attention to when using broiler cages to raise chickens.

1. Group the chickens

When the three-dimensional broiler cages are used to raise chickens, most of them use whole sports chicks. When the density of chicks is too high, group them in a timely manner to ensure that the weight of the chicks is even. The first grouping is usually 12-16 days old. The grouping is too early. Due to the small size, It is easy to drill through the gaps in the growing cage, and it will cause a waste of space and energy. The second grouping, at 25-28 days of age, this time grouping should place the heavier healthy parts in the lower layer, leaving the weak young. In summer, because the temperature is too high, grouping can be carried out in advance. In winter, the temperature is cold and the temperature difference between the upper and lower cages is large. You can appropriately postpone the cage time, and put one more in the lower cage to reduce the temperature difference between the upper and lower cages.

2. Control of temperature

   three-dimensional cage has three layers. When the temperature outside the chicken house is lower, the temperature difference between each layer is greater. Under normal circumstances, brooding are placed on the highest level, because the highest level has a higher temperature, which is conducive to saving heat. On the first day the chicks enter the farm, the temperature should be controlled at 33-34°C, which can also be adjusted according to the state of the chicks. When the temperature is right, the chickens are evenly distributed, lively, and have a strong appetite. When the temperature becomes low, shrink the neck and bow back and concentrate on the heat source. Squeezing each other, their bodies tremble. When the temperature is too high, water consumption increases, appetite decreases, breathing speeds up, and there is water in neck feathers. In the first week, the temperature drops to 30°C, and thereafter it drops by 2°C every week. The three-dimensional breeding density is high, which is 1 to 2°C lower than the flat rearing temperature. The heat stress of the chickens should avoid the phenomenon of reduced feed intake.

3. Disinfect the chicken house

   The chicken house should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected 5 days before the chicks are put into the house. Here, the farmers need to pay attention to avoid using caustic soda and other corrosive disinfectants for disinfection. After the chicks are in the house, the ground is cleaned every day, and the chickens are disinfected every other day.

4. Drinking water for chickens

   After the chicks are placed in the house, make sure that they can drink clean and sanitary water within 2 hours. For the first time the chicks drink water, use warm water at 25°C, add 5% glucose and 0.1% vitamin C to the water, and rinse the waterer frequently. Throughout the brooding period, drinking water should not be interrupted. From the second day of brooding, add anti-pullaria drugs to the drinking water.

Broiler breeding is divided into broiler flat-raising system and broiler cage-raising system. Generally, for farms with less than 30,000 chickens, it is recommended to use broiler flat-raising equipment, which is more cost-effective and requires less start-up capital. For breeding of more than 30,000 chickens, it is recommended to use broiler cage breeding equipment, which has a high degree of automation and saves time and effort, but the price is higher.

Temperature and light requirements of chicken house for layer breeding equipment

One of the main factors affecting the utilization rate of feed for chickens in layer chicken battery cage system is the environmental temperature where the chickens are located. In a low-temperature environment, chickens consume more food because they use part of their energy to maintain normal body temperature. In a high temperature environment, the feed intake of chickens will decrease, and the feed utilization rate will be relatively poor, because the biological cooling mechanism of chickens in hot conditions also requires energy. By providing the best environmental temperature, the chicken can use the various nutrients it has absorbed for growth and reduce it to regulate body temperature.






The temperature requirement of the chicks house: The house temperature requirement on the first day of brooding is slightly higher, reaching 33-35℃, and then dropping by 2-3℃ every week until it can stabilize within the range of 16-21 ℃.


Growing house temperature requirements: The most suitable house temperature for growing chicken house is 13-23℃, the lowest is 5℃, and the highest is 30℃.


Chickens are long-day animals. The chickens must have reasonable light in various feeding periods. Under suitable light conditions, the performance of chickens can be improved. When designing the lighting, the illuminance of caged chickens should be increased, generally at 3.3 to 3.5 watts/square meter. Usually when the lamp is 2 meters high, the lamp distance is 3 meters, 2.7 watts/square meter or 1 watt/0.371 square meters, the illuminance equivalent to 10 Lx can be obtained.


From the 3-7 days after the chicks emerge from the shell, the daily light is 23.5-24 hours, and then gradually shortened to 8-9 hours, until the age of 18-20 weeks. From then on, add 0.5 to 1.0 hours per week until it reaches 14 to 16 hours of light, and thereafter remain unchanged. Under normal circumstances, the brooding period (0-6 weeks of age) chickens require 23 to 18.5 hours of light, the light intensity is 10 to 30 Lx, and warm color light sources are the main ones; the light time requirement of the rearing period is 8 to 9 hours, The light intensity is 5 Lx, warm color light source; the light time requirement during the laying period is 14-16 hours, the light intensity is 10-12 Lx, and the cold color light source is the main.

Precautions for disinfection of chicken coops

1. Clean the environment and poultry farming equipment before disinfection

Before disinfection with chickens, pollutants such as dust on the roof, walls, and chicken house passages should be removed to improve the disinfection effect and save the amount of medicine.

2. Reasonable selection of disinfectants

The disinfectant should be broad-spectrum, high-efficiency, strong sterilization, toxicity, low irritation, no residue, and low corrosiveness to metal and plastic products.




3. Scientific preparation of pharmaceutical liquid

The preparation of disinfectant liquid should choose deep well water or tap water with less impurities, and the water temperature should generally be controlled at 30-45°C. The stability of the disinfection medicinal water becomes poor after dilution, so it should be prepared for immediate use and used up at once.

4. Selection of disinfection equipment and correct spraying

Sterilization equipment can choose high pressure power sprayer or knapsack sprayer. When spraying, spray it in a circle above the chicken house, the diameter of the mist particles is 80-120 microns. If the mist particles are too small, they can easily be sucked into the respiratory tract by chickens, causing pulmonary edema and even induce respiratory diseases; too large mist particles may cause uneven spraying and increase the humidity of the chicken house.

5. Master the frequency and amount of spray disinfection

Under normal circumstances, disinfect 2 to 3 times a week. The chicks are too small to be spray disinfected with chickens, and they can be disinfected with chickens only after 1 week of age. Generally, the spray volume is calculated at 30-50 ml per square meter. The spray volume for flat rearing can be less, and the spray volume for cage breeding should be more; the spray volume for chicks is less, and the spray volume for medium and large chickens is more.In addition, the following issues should be noted. First, disinfection of chickens should be stopped within 3 days before and after the live vaccine immunization, so as not to affect the immune effect. Second, the spray disinfection time is best to be fixed, and it should be carried out under low light conditions to prevent stress. Third, ventilation should be strengthened after disinfection to facilitate the drying of the chicken body and the chicken house. Fourth, according to the characteristics, ingredients, principles, and disinfection effects of different disinfectants, they should be used alternately to prevent the development of drug resistance.

Layer breeding equipment manufacturers share measures to prevent layers from stress


1. Farmers should start from the growth characteristics of laying hens and provide them with a good, quiet and comfortable growth environment. The control of temperature and humidity, and ventilation management must be scientific and reasonable, especially large-scale use of layer cage breeding equipment to raise layer Chicken farms. Avoid humidity and air pollution in the chicken house due to poor ventilation, and avoid stress caused by poor environment.


2. Farmers must ensure the stability of feeding during the entire breeding process, such as laying hens drinking water, feeding, disinfection and other environments, must be in order, time is regular, and farmers must pay attention to not cutting off water or lack of material .


3. During the breeding process, the farmers should control the environment of the chicken coop, such as fixing the light switch time, cooling down in summer and keeping warm in winter to prevent the adverse effects of high and low temperature on laying hens. Prevention and control measures should be taken in time in autumn when the temperature changes greatly, and work should be done to prevent storms in the rainy season.





4. In the breeding farm where the laying hens are raised, the farmers should be careful not to yell, and be careful not to build the chicken house in a noisy place.


5. Layers need different feed ingredients in different growth stages, so farmers must change feeds at certain stages, and there must be a transitional stage in the process of changing feeds, so as to ensure the smooth adaptation of broilers.


6.Automatic environmental control system

With the features of huge air volume, low noise and energy consumption; you can know the details inside the poultry house with the equipment of alarming system; no matter how high the original temperature is, the environment control system can reduce the indoor temperature to less than 30℃,thus keep the chicken birds healthy; The combination of exhaust fan and cooling pad make a best benefit for the clients and our ventilation fan can be used in almost all places which need ventilation and cooling system.

How to use chicken coops to raise chickens to make money

The way of raising chickens is changing with the continuous development of the chicken industry. Nowadays, the use of chicken cages to raise chickens is a development trend. Chicken cages use a multi-layer three-dimensional breeding model, which can help farmers increase the density of chickens. In order to meet the development of the times, how to use chicken coops to raise chickens can make money? The following editor will introduce the technical points of raising chickens for farmers.


1. Choose high-quality and low-cost chicken coop equipment: chicken coop equipment is varied and available in all specifications and types. Farmers tend to choose chicken coops with low quality at a low price. Such chicken coops will appear soon after use. Deformation, rust and other phenomena affect the life of the chickens, and the short service life greatly increases the cost. Only by choosing a good quality can you ensure a good structure, reliable quality, not only a long life, and the chickens live in a well-structured cage Also more comfortable.


2. Formulating nutritionally balanced feed: In order to make money in raising chickens, it is very important to ensure that the nutrition in the chicken group meets the standard. Only the nutritionally balanced chicken group can develop the growth and production performance of production and bring better to the farmers. When formulating feed, farmers should prepare or purchase various nutrients required by different growth stages, so that the chickens can meet the standard nutrition at each growth stage.


3. Take chicken raising as a business: Many farmers raise chickens for the sake of making money, so they try to reduce costs to increase benefits, but if the cost is reduced, chickens may not grow and produce well, so farmers should raise chickens as a business , You must devote yourself to the health and growth of the chickens in all aspects, and put all your energy on the chickens. The technology and the success rate of chickens will be greatly improved.






4. It is very important to raise chickens to make money and reduce risks: various diseases are the key to increasing the risk of chickens, especially infectious diseases. Once a chicken has an infectious disease, it may be transmitted to other chickens and cause serious problems. Therefore, before the disease occurs, farmers must learn to prevent it and reduce it. The effective means to prevent infectious diseases is frequent disinfection and immunization. Therefore, these two tasks are indispensable if you want to raise chickens to make money


5. Think about the market before raising chickens: No matter how high-yield and good the quality of the chickens raised by a farmer is, you must first have a market to get benefits and make money. Therefore, before raising chickens, farmers should pay attention to the impact of the area. What is the demand for chicken eggs? You can discuss cooperation with some food factories or manufacturers that need chicken eggs, so that you can ensure that your chickens have a market.


6. Pay attention to accumulating breeding techniques: In the daily breeding process, farmers should learn to record, summarize, record the situation and problems that occur in the flock, and gradually accumulate experience, and also be open-minded to experienced breeding Households learn breeding techniques.customers who raise chickens in Ghana Will learn technology in advance

Cooling measures when using broiler cages to raise chickens

Summer is coming and getting hotter and hotter. Are there any good cooling measures when using broiler cages to raise chickens? Let's share with you some good cooling measures for your reference.

1. Roof sprinkler
   A deep well was dug beside the chicken house, and the underground cold water was pumped to the roof of the chicken house with a submersible pump. Set up 1-2 plastic pipes in the middle of the roof, and make multiple leaking holes on the front and back or left and right of the water pipes. Water can leak through the holes and flow into the roof or the front and rear windows of the chicken house to cool down. This method can reduce the temperature by 2-3°C in the hot summer.

2. Water curtain fan system
  The brick house can be installed with a curtain fan system to cool down. Set up 1-2 plastic pipes in the operating room at one end of the chicken house, above the doors, windows and doors on both sides, and punch a number of small holes under the plastic pipes. One end of the water pipe is connected to the water pipe, and the other end is blocked. When, water can flow out of the small holes in the plastic pipe. Install a longitudinal ventilation fan at the other end of the chicken house. When the ventilation starts, the air curtain at one end of the water curtain of the chicken house cools and enters the cool air in the chicken house. This method can reduce the house temperature by 2-3°C.

3. High pressure spray system
   is connected with a water pipe by a special sprinkler, installed under the roof of the chicken house. The row spacing and the number of sprinklers can be set according to the span and length of the chicken house. Another high-pressure water pump pumps water into the water pipe. Due to the action of the high-pressure water pump, the liquid water becomes gaseous. Install a fan at the other end of the house. In this way, intermittent spraying and ventilation can reduce the temperature in the house by 2-3°C. The length and frequency of spraying time can be flexibly controlled according to the temperature.

4. Wet pad fan cooling system
  This system can generally reduce the temperature by 7-10℃, and the cooling effect is better.

The above four kinds of broiler cage chicken cooling measures introduced to you will learn about them. If you have any other questions, please call us for consultation.

The application of vitamin e and selenium in raise chickens in cage

Vitamin E is widely distributed in chicken battery cage for broilers feed, and the content of green feed is rich. The content of young green grass is more than that of mature grass, and cereal seeds are rich in vitamin E.


Vitamin E and selenium have synergistic effect and play an antioxidant role together. In the process of metabolism of nutrients in chickens, many peroxides are often produced, which are harmful to chickens, can damage cell membranes, make cells fragile, bleed capillaries, and are easily attacked by bacteria and get sick.


Vitamin E and selenium can prevent the harm of peroxides in chickens. Vitamin E can be regarded as the first line of defense to prevent the production of peroxides. It can usually combine with the cell membrane, protect the cell membrane and inhibit the production of peroxides by its own antioxidant action.




Selenium is absorbed into the body by chickens, and plays an important role as an essential component called glutathione peroxidase, which is mainly used to remove peroxides produced in chickens and reduce their harm to cells. Therefore, selenium in broiler cages is also called the second line of defense to prevent the toxic effects of peroxide.


The application of the new battery broiler cages and supporting equipment has increased the land utilization rate by two times compared with the leveling, fully utilized the space resources of the breeding grounds, reduced the mortality rate to less than 7%, saved about 5% of the feed for our manufacturers’ chicken farm equipment for sale in nigeria ,compared to ordinary equipment, and gained weight. About 5%, automatic feeding reduces the contact between humans and chickens and reduces the chance of cross-infection.

Four-tier stepped layer chicken cages size

Now the farmer's feeding methods for laying hens have changed a lot with the continuous development of society. Eggs are foods that we often eat in our lives and are rich in protein, so the prospect of raising layers is also very good. Ladder laying hen cage is a type of chicken breeding equipment for laying hens. Adopting an effective feeding method not only saves materials, but also allows users to obtain a greater profit. The following author talks about the size and advantages of the four-tier stepped layer chicken cage.

Advantages of four-tier stepped egg chicken cage:

1. The high-quality chicken cage is easy to operate and durable.

2. The chicken cage is separated from the net and the bottom net is encrypted, which effectively prevents chickens from pecking feathers and anus, reducing egg breaking rate and laying chicken fatigue syndrome.

3. The full set of products adopts hot-dip galvanizing technology and has a long service life; Q235 material has great elasticity and is not easy to bend.


4. The thickened structure of the front mesh steel wire is firmer, the structure is reasonable, and the energy consumption is low.

5. Unique cage door design, the cage door space is larger, the position of chicken feeding can be changed arbitrarily, which effectively solves the crowding of chickens when feeding, and ensures that chickens eat more uniformly.

6. The use of conveyor belt to clean the manure to dry the chicken manure into granules, reduce environmental pollution, and high recycling rate of chicken manure.

7. Used by many customers at home and abroad, the effect is excellent.

Four-tier stepped egg chicken cage size:

The ladder-type laying hen cage has four layers and four doors, each group has a length of 187cm, each group spans 220cm, the number of units is 32, the unit length is 47cm, the unit depth is 37cm, the inside and outside height is 33/38cm, and the feeding capacity is 128.

The ladder-type laying hen cage has four layers and five doors. Each group has a length of 195cm, each group spans 220cm, the number of units is 40, the unit length is 40cm, the unit depth is 37cm, the inside and outside height is 33/38cm, and the feeding amount is 120.

How to clean and maintain the chicken cage of laying hen equipment?

We will clean everything after using it for a long time, and the chicken cage is no exception. Chicken cages for laying hens can be seen everywhere in the chicken factory, and the chickens will shit every day, so there will be a lot of dirty things attached to the chicken cage. It is not easy to clean up after a long time, so how should we clean up?


At this time, we should first disassemble the poultry farming cage, and then soak it in water until the dirt is soaked and then rinsed with clean water. Let me talk about the maintenance of the chicken cage.


The chicken cage can extend its service life if it is well maintained. When using chicken coops at ordinary times, we must be careful not to forcefully pull, pull, or close the door. Note that these can greatly reduce the collision between the chicken coops. Also, do not put the feed around the chicken cage when feeding the feed, this can also reduce the chicken bite.






To keep the chicken cage dry, do not rinse it with water or disassemble the cage at will when cleaning is not required. Usually just use it normally and then do the cleaning work according to the steps on time.

There are many types of chicken cages, which can be divided according to the type of chickens: layer cages, broiler cages and chick cages, etc. The requirements of different types of chickens for the cages and automatic poultry farming equipment are also different. First of all, it depends on the size of your chicken farm and the type of chicken, and it depends on whether the price is reasonable, and you can buy a good quality and cheap chicken cage. When buying, you need to pay attention to the material of the chicken cage, the spacing of the iron bars at the bottom of the cage, and the connection of the bottom net between the chicken cage and the chicken cage

The material selection of the chicken cage is very particular. When buying, choose a suitable and tough material, and the spacing of the wires at the bottom of the cage is about 2 mm. If the spacing of the wires is too large, the egg breaking rate may increase. The spacing of the iron bars at the bottom of the cage is very important for the selection of chicken cages. The spacing is generally 2.5 cm by 5 cm. Some people think that the size of the broiler is large, so it doesn't matter if the spacing of the iron bars at the bottom of the cage is larger, but this idea is incorrect. And I also suggest that chicken farms with economic conditions can lay a layer of plastic mesh at the bottom of the cage that is the same size as the mesh at the bottom of the cage. The plastic mesh can cushion the impact of eggs falling from the chicken cage, which will greatly reduce eggs Broken egg rate.
