Raise chickens in broiler cages to improve economic efficiency

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
of broiler cages.

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.

Technical measures for broiler cages

Broiler chickens can be raised in three-dimensional cages, and the feces fall to the ground through the gaps of the cage meshes, and the automatic removal of feces is implemented to isolate the broilers from the feces, achieving less disease, fast growth, good quality and good benefits.


1. The farm conforms to the plan, the surrounding environment is excellent, the internal layout is reasonable, and the living area, office area, production area, and harmless treatment area are clearly divided.


2. Construct a double-slope chicken house with steel structure with excellent structural performance and strong thermal insulation. The design of the field, width, and eaves height is 80 meters × 12 meters × 3 meters, with 3 rows of chicken cages inside, and 15,000 broilers in each broiler cages.


3. Install 3 rows of cascaded chicken coops on 3 floors in the chicken house. The length, depth and height of a single chicken coop are 65 cm×60 cm×36 cm. The chicken house is equipped with an automatic feeding line and a nipple-type automatic drinking water system. , UV sterilization machinery, etc.


4. Adopt automatic light control, install air blower, wet curtain, heater and other temperature and humidity control equipment.


5. Install manure scrapers to automatically remove manure, build manure fermentation plants, fermentation sheds, and dry and wet separators to treat manure harmlessly; build a harmless treatment room for sick and dead poultry, and install an incinerator to treat sick and dead chickens; net The sewage channels are strictly separated and do not cross each other, and the operation of personnel and materials adopts a single flow.





6. When brooding in the middle layer of chicken cages, at the age of 10 days, group the big chickens to the uppermost layer, and at the age of 15 days, group them to the bottom layer again, forming the upper, middle and lower layers of chicken cages with 6 broilers. 7 and 8 pattern.


7. Use full-price compound feed and switch feeding according to age.


8. Implement immunization in accordance with the broiler immunization program, the use of veterinary drugs must comply with the relevant laws and documents of the higher level, and the withdrawal period shall be strictly implemented.


9. Set up a disinfection room or disinfection pool at the entrance of the breeding farm, the entrance of the production area, and the entrance of each chicken house.


10. The chicken farm adheres to the principle of "all in and all out". The imported chickens are from healthy breeder farms. After each batch of chickens is released, the entire chicken farm is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.

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.

What are the advantages of automated chicken feeding system?

The automated chicken feeding system is mainly composed of cage systems, automated egg collection systems, automated manure cleaning systems, automated feeding equipment, automated lighting systems, and environmental control systems. When the equipment is designed, it adopts automatic control, and the operation mode is relatively simple. It is suitable for the intensive breeding of brooders, broilers and layers of different scales. Many chicken farmers now gradually feel that traditional chicken breeding equipment cannot meet their own needs. They are gradually moving from traditional artificial breeding equipment to automated breeding, and the breeding industry is developing towards intensification, planning, and standardization.

1. Improve production efficiency, greatly increase production capacity, and have significant economic benefits

The unit space breeding density of the automated chicken breeding equipment is extremely high, the breeding output is large, and the efficiency can be reasonably doubled. If chickens are raised in flat or shed, they will take up more space. If you use an automated poultry battery cage system to raise the density, it can be said that the chicken house with the same floor area will raise more chickens.

The use of automated chicken breeding equipment, professional manure removal and feeding equipment, so that the manure in the chicken house can be cleaned out in time, and it also ensures that the chicken house environment is clean and pollution-free, and provides good housing for the chickens. In the environment, the use of an automatic feeding system to feed the chickens can ensure uniform feeding, so that the uniformity of chicken growth can be improved, and the laying hens can increase the egg production rate.

2. Reduce manpower and greatly reduce production costs

The use of automated chicken raising equipment to raise chickens can automatically perform work instead of labor. This can save farmers the use of labor costs and reduce the cost of labor for farmers. The use of automated equipment is more convenient for mechanized operation, which can increase labor productivity to a large extent, that is, greatly reduce labor costs.

3. Easy to manage and reduce breeding risks

The use of automated poultry farm equipment can ensure the environment of the chicken house. For example, the manure cleaner can automatically clean manure regularly, and timely clean up the manure produced by the chicken flock, so that the chance of bacteria and ammonia gas in the chicken house is reduced. The chicken house environment is good, and the chickens grow naturally. In particular, the longitudinal ventilation of the stacked cage house is large, the temperature, humidity and wind speed of the airflow on the horizontal manure belt are stable, and the chicken manure is naturally dried. The manure is loose with chicken manure, not sticky, and has little peculiar smell, which greatly improves the air environment in the house.

The automatic equipment can automatically adjust the air inlet, oxygen content and humidity through the automatic ventilation system. It can ensure the healthy growth of chickens and the safety and high quality of eggs, and realize the automatic management of temperature, humidity, ventilation, lighting distribution, and fan wet curtains in the house.

The automated equipment adopts closed feeding management, which is conducive to disease control and drug residue control, which creates conditions and lays the foundation for achieving the requirements of chicken hygiene and safety. Layers and broilers are of good quality, which is conducive to exports, improves market competitiveness, and provides a guarantee for effectively responding to foreign technical barriers. The use of fully automatic poultry breeding equipment is the current direction to achieve intensive, standardized, efficient and high-quality breeding of layer and broiler chickens.

Some suggestions for using broiler cages to manage broilers

Broiler chickens must have special cages during feeding. Broilers have higher requirements for cages. Because broiler breeders are larger in size and weight, special broiler cages should be used. Using broiler cages to raise broilers, in order to prevent the growth of broilers from being restricted, the author makes the following suggestions:

1. When using broiler farming equipment to feed chickens, be sure to master the time. The feeding is even, and only skilled and responsible workers can do this job well.

Before each feeding, calculate the amount of material required for two chickens in a single cage, and use the dustpan to repeatedly load the material for practice. Feeding should be done twice. It is best to leave the rest of the feed when the chickens are fed, and then focus on feeding according to the situation, so as to ensure that the amount of feed in front of each chicken is equal and reasonable. Otherwise it will seriously affect the uniformity of the flock or the egg production rate.

Therefore, breeding managers should fully mobilize the enthusiasm of workers and cultivate a group of responsible and skilled workers to ensure the normal performance of production performance.

2. When using broiler battery cages to raise chickens, due to the high density, it is not conducive to observe the situation in the flock, especially in the brooding period. Therefore, we must carefully observe the inside of the cage to prevent the abnormal situation of the chickens from being found and handled in time.

When the chicks are just transferred to the rearing cage, the flocks will experience short-term restlessness due to the new environment. The chickens that ran out of the cage should be caught in the cage in time, and the chickens should be carefully checked for damage and whether all the chickens can drink water in time.

In addition, in daily management, we should carefully observe the chickens every time, and be well aware of the chickens’ feeding, drinking, feces, mental state, etc., timely prevent diseases, strengthen management, and reduce economic losses

Features of stacked broiler cages in farms

1. Vertical 90° folding angle, avoiding the arc-shaped folding angle of ordinary chicken cages, can effectively improve the verticality of chicken cages, increase physical elasticity, reduce deformation, and have the characteristics of fatigue resistance and long service life.

2. Compared with the traditional vertical sliding door, the cage door adopts horizontal sliding door, which is firm and durable, has a large space, and has been operated. The horizontal sliding door is matched with the improved large reverse slope trough, which can effectively reduce the feed of the chickens, save the feed, and reduce the hair removal of the chicken necks, so that the chickens can maintain a good appearance.

3. The egg tray is automatically formed by a hydraulic press. The low net drum can effectively reduce the sag of the net and increase the service life of the product. At the same time, the good elasticity can effectively reduce the egg loss rate and improve the efficiency while reducing breeder fatigue and increasing egg production.

4. Combining the international general breeding equipment standards, reducing the diameter of the steel wire and increasing the density of the steel wire, through the high-density bottom net design, it is helpful to reduce the slope of the bottom net of the chicken cage and facilitate the smooth entry of eggs into the egg trough, which can effectively reduce chicken fatigue. It can increase the egg production rate by more than 5%, reduce the rate of dead panning by more than 50%, and effectively reduce the incidence of various poultry diseases.





Product advantages


Automatic stacked broiler cages, the cage adopts the design of automatic chicken bottom net, when the chicken needs to be discharged later, the bottom net part of all equipment can be withdrawn, and the broiler in the cage will fall on the manure belt, and the conveyance of the manure belt , The broiler is transferred to the lateral transfer device at the rear of the chicken house. The lateral transfer device will transfer the broiler to the outside of the chicken house or load the truck according to the actual situation, which greatly saves manpower and labor, and also facilitates the cleaning of the bottom net. At the same time, the spring cage door design makes the broiler chicks easy and convenient to enter the cage, and it is also very convenient for the individual broilers to be released from the cage and epidemic prevention.


Advantages of this set of equipment:

1. Compared with flat rearing, the unit area can increase the feeding amount by more than 50%

2. The chicken manure is completely separated from the chickens to ensure that the chickens are clean and tidy, reduce the incidence of diseases, and increase the survival rate of the chickens

3. Chickens have limited range of motion, low energy consumption, and save feed

4. Convenient for the observation, grouping, selection and isolation of chickens

5. Leave enough space for the chickens to eat and drink, the neatness and health of the chickens are better 6. Simple operation, stable structure, the whole is made of corrosion-resistant materials, corrosion-resistant, wear-resistant, and long service life specialty.

The scientific and reasonable design of the stacking equipment, the stable cage system, and the simple operation experience are the choice of large-scale farms. As land is becoming more and more expensive and labor costs are getting higher and higher, high-level automatic poultry farming equipment has become the current development trend of the breeding industry.
