How to raise chickens in layer cages to increase the income of farmers?

In the current chicken industry, many farmers are farther away to adapt to layer cages and automatic chicken breeding equipment to raise chickens. Because using them can more easily achieve good breeding results.

First of all, the layer cages are generally tier by tier, and the most common ones are three or four tiers. This type of breeding requires three or four times more chickens than horizontal or free-range breeding. In this way, farmers can obtain more economic benefits. In addition, chickens live in battery chicken cages, and farmers can more easily observe the state of the chickens, and the hygiene of the chicken cage is easier to clean and maintain.

Reduce the cost of feed. In layer cages, feed accounts for 70% of the cost of the chicken farm. Reduce water and electricity costs, save water and electricity (without affecting production), and improve economic management. In laying chicken cages, the internal conditions, capital, site, labor, and technology are combined to make business decisions on the scale of production, feeding methods, and methods. The benefit of raising chickens in layer cages increases simultaneously with the number of breeding, that is, the more chickens raised, the higher the benefit. Each chicken farm must develop a breeding scale suitable for its own conditions according to its own conditions and market conditions.

The layer cages carry out scientific feeding and management. Scientific feeding and management can make chickens give full play to their production performance, which is the key to obtaining high economic benefits. During the breeding process, the layer cage should provide suitable feeding and management methods according to different ages of chickens, reasonable feeding, and good environmental control work to reduce the stress response of the chickens as much as possible.

The above are the advantages of cascading chicken  breeding equipment to raise chickens. The rational use of these can not only make the chicken's life more comfortable, but also create more economic benefits for the farmers.

What farmers should pay attention to when buying layer cages?

Nowadays, many farmers are enthusiastic about the ease and efficiency of raising chickens in automatic layer battery cages. They don't know how to buy cages and what problems should be paid attention to when buying cages. Today I will share these problems with you.

  • Layer hen cages and chicken cage racks should not run out of chickens when they are in use, and there should be no obvious egg stagnation.
  • The hooks of the layer cages must not be warped outwards, and the steel wire coupling buckles are all on the outside of the cage. This will not scratch the chicken.
  • The welded joints of the cage frame should be firm, and no false welding and burns are allowed.
  • Layer battery cages and cage racks shall meet the requirements of the standard, and shall be manufactured in accordance with the drawings and technical documents approved by the prescribed procedures.

In addition, layer cages are strictly prohibited to be placed against the wall. Because it is extremely unfair to set up chicken coops against the wall, whether it is from the perspective of epidemic prevention or from the perspective of chicken health. Many facts show that the right-angled manure passage formed by the chicken coop and the wall is the place where the pathogenic microorganisms accumulate the most in the chicken house, and the number is generally 2 to 6 times that of other places.

The above are the points that should be paid attention to when purchasing chicken cages shared by automatic poultry farming equipment manufacturers for farmers. I hope that the summary can help farmers to purchase excellent quality chicken farming equipment.

Reasons and countermeasures for the sudden drop of egg production rate in layer cages

There are many reasons for the sudden drop in laying rate of laying hen cages. There are many reasons for the sudden drop in laying rate of laying hens.

  1. The environment The laying hen flocks are very strongly stressed to the environment, especially the light, temperature and ventilation are the most obvious.

① Light, such as the sudden stop of light in the chicken coop, shorten the light time, reduce the light intensity, etc., can cause the egg production to drop suddenly, especially in rural areas where there are frequent power outages and no backup lighting equipment, which has a more serious impact.

② Temperature, sudden increase or decrease in temperature, such as continuous sweltering weather in summer, formation of a high temperature environment in the house, or sudden cold current attack, will generally reduce the feed intake of the chickens, and the egg production will also decrease.

③ Ventilation, poor ventilation, turbid air in the house, and too strong ammonia smell can also cause a drop in egg production.

  1. Poor management is also an important factor leading to a sudden drop in egg production.

① Irregular feeding management procedures, such as one more meal but one less meal, insufficient drinking water supply, and random changes to operating procedures can cause a sudden drop in egg production.

② Abnormal noises, the appearance of strangers, livestock, vaccination or deworming treatment will not only cause a sudden drop in egg production, but also increase deformed eggs, soft-shelled eggs and broken eggs.

  1. Diseases There are many diseases that cause egg production to drop, among which the invasion of infectious diseases is particularly obvious.

There are two main types of infectious diseases that can cause a sudden drop in egg production.

① Viral infectious diseases.

For example, when the virulent Newcastle disease is invaded, the egg production rate of chickens can suddenly drop from 70% to 90% to 20% to 40%; there have been chickens suffering from mild Newcastle disease that suddenly drop the egg production rate by 20% to 40 % Of cases occur.

②Bacterial infectious diseases.

There are mainly colibacillosis, septic mycoplasmosis, infectious rhinitis and fowl cholera. Five and others. The main reasons are the synchronizing of laying hens' rest days or overdose of drugs.

When the egg production of the chicken flock is in a relatively stable state, if the number of chickens on a certain day is suddenly increased, the egg production will suddenly drop, but this phenomenon will generally return to the original in a short period of time. Egg production level. As for overdose, chicken poisoning or significant impact on egg production often occur.

The above is the analysis of the reasons for the sudden drop in egg production rate. It is recommended that farmers use automatic poultry chicken farming equipment to raise chickens. The chickens are centrally managed so that the farmers can observe the status of the chickens and find out the wrong chickens as soon as possible and deal with them.

What should we do when the chickens in the layer hen cage are sick

It is very troublesome to raise chickens in layer hen cages, and farmers should pay more attention to the reaction of the chickens. So what should we do when the chickens get sick?

In addition to the rapid diagnosis and timely treatment of chickens after the chickens are sick, the sick chickens must be isolated immediately and special feeding management shall be carried out to restore the health of the chickens as soon as possible.


  1. Feed. First of all, we must improve the nutritional level of feed. According to the reduction in feed intake, the energy level is increased to 1.2 times the normal value; in addition, the vitamin content in the feed must be increased. Then it is necessary to appropriately reduce the fat content in the feed; secondly, it is necessary to increase the number of feedings, and at the same time to moisten the feed to stimulate the chicken's feeding; finally, to keep the feed and facilities clean and hygienic.


  1. Drinking water. Make sure to provide enough clean drinking water when the chickens are sick. If you need to administer the medicine in water, you must first put in the medicine that is easy to dissolve into the water, and then calculate the dosage according to the water requirement of the chicken. Third, pay attention to the effective time of the medicine in the water to ensure that the chickens drink it within the validity period of the medicine. At the same time, it should be noted that the water must not be stopped before taking the medicine.


  1. Keeping the air in the chicken coop fresh is necessary for the management of chickens during illness. However, in autumn and winter, you should pay attention to the heat preservation of the chicken house to prevent cold wind and thief wind from invading the chickens. When respiratory diseases occur, do not perform aerosol immunization, and minimize the number of disinfection with chickens.


Poultry farming equipment manufacturers share with you the ways and methods for farmers to deal with when laying hens are sick. Hope these methods can help farmers raise chickens better.

Several questions about cleaning of layer cages


The chicken battery cages are the place where chickens live in intensive chicken farming. After a long period of use, the chicken coop net will be stained with chicken manure and chicken feed residues. The clean chicken cage can reduce chicken disease. How to clean the chicken cage.

1. Clean chicken coops and cages. Use tap water to clean chicken coops and cages. Do not leave dead corners when cleaning. Feed troughs and water lines should also be thoroughly cleaned to avoid residual feed, dirt and feces.

2. Clean the tray of the egg layer cages,the broiler cage liner is placed at the bottom of a tray. Such trays should be removed at least once a week and scrubbed with a damp cloth.



3. When cleaning the chicken cage, scan or rake out the old shavings together with the accessories and scrub the floor if necessary. Sprinkle a thick layer of pine shavings around the chicken coop, between 8 inches and 12 inches deep. Sometimes the floor of the chicken coop from grains. Add a thin layer of pine shavings to sprinkle more ammonia smell whenever the chicken house. 

 4.After cleaning, we must disinfect the layer cages. The disinfectant should be used in rotation during disinfection, and the dosage should be controlled properly. Before fumigation and disinfection, close the doors and windows of the chicken house, block all gaps, and then calculate the amount of medicine according to the volume of the chicken house.


 5. It is necessary to clean the layer cages once a week, so that the chickens can get a better growth environment under the condition of ensuring hygiene, thereby increasing the growth of the chickens and bringing more and better benefits to the users.

Precautions for raising chicken in modern automated layer cage

Raising chickens in modern automatic layer cages is now a trend in the poultry farming industry. Many farmers have just come into contact with poultry equipment, and today I will share with you the points that you should pay attention to when raising chickens.

Many breeders of layer hens believe that the raising of the laying hens is important, and it is related to the egg production of the laying hens. However, the feeding and management of the laying hens before laying is also not to be ignored. If it has not been carefully raised before, it will not only easily cause the laying hens to delay the laying period, but also affect the length of the peak laying period and laying performance.



Before the laying hens start to lay, the metabolism of the laying hens is vigorous and requires a large amount of water. Therefore, farmers must ensure adequate drinking water for the chickens at this stage. Insufficient drinking water will affect the increase in egg production rate, and there will be more prolapses. Another thing to note is that you should drink water before feeding in the morning.

Under the conditions of large groups and high-density breeding, it is necessary to keep each chicken with an appropriate trough and water trough length, and place these troughs and water troughs as evenly as possible in all parts of the chicken house. In this way, although the density of the chicken flock is high, each chicken can have a certain position and can eat and drink water nearby to ensure that there is no shortage of feed water, so that its production performance will not be affected.

Ensure the ventilation of the chicken house. In the closed chicken house, it is recommended that farmers install chicken raising equipment fans and wet curtain equipment for ventilation and cooling. The effect is good. Mechanical cooling and ventilation can bring a comfortable environment to the chickens. At that time, farmers can appropriately reduce the density of chickens raised in chicken cages, and try to let the chickens rest as much as possible.

What should be paid attention to when raising chickens in battery broiler cages?

Changing seasons means changes in temperature, and the suitable living temperature for chickens is around 17°C. Therefore, farmers should pay attention to the management of the chicken cages when changing seasons. Let’s take a look at the chicken battery cage manufacturer below.

Reduce stress response: Excessive voices, group transfers, and changes in weather are all bad stimuli for chickens and can often cause disease. Avoid unnecessary grabbing and disturbing as much as possible during the broiler cage. Anti-stress drugs can be used for prevention before transfer, vaccination, and beak cutting; take care of the cold stress caused by the drop in temperature.



Pay attention to the humidity of the cage and keep it dry. When drinking and feeding, be careful not to let the broilers spread the water and feed outside. When raising the broiler cage, pay special attention to the dryness and cleanness of the litter. In the brooding period, try to use straw as litter, which is dry and helpful to increase the temperature; the middle and large chickens should thicken the litter to increase the temperature when the temperature is lower than 18 ℃. If there is an adverse reaction, it should be dealt with immediately, and corresponding epidemic prevention measures should be taken, and the broiler chicken cages should be cleaned in time to reduce bacteria.

The above are the precautions for the management of chicken coops when the season is changed. I hope there are some places that can help the farmers.

How to properly supplement calcium in layer cages

Calcium is an indispensable feed in the daily production of laying hens, so how to use layer cages to properly supplement calcium? We all know that if the calcium in the feed is insufficient, it will directly affect egg production, egg shell thickness, and The fertilization rate of eggs, the rate of chicks emergence, and the calcium content of serum. So proper calcium supplementation is very important.


  1. Selection of calcium source feed


For the choice of calcium source feed, sea shell powder has the best effect. Coarse shell powder is crushed from large shells into particles with a diameter of 8 mesh to 12 mesh. It does not contain fine sand. The calcium content is generally 35% to 37%. It is a high-quality calcium source feed for laying hens.


  1. Calcium supplement time

When the hens lay continuously in the morning, the next egg yolk is discharged from the ovary into the fallopian tube half an hour after laying. Therefore, the hens do not need calcium supplementation in the morning. After 14 o'clock in the afternoon, as the eggshell deposition rate increases, the amount of calcium intake by the chickens also increases. Therefore, in order to make laying hens produce more eggs and lay well, it is best to feed the laying hens with calcium feed from 12:00 to 18:00 every day.



  1. The amount of calcium supplement

Laying hen production requires calcium supplementation, but not as much as possible. Generally, each egg lay requires 4.4 grams of calcium, and the calcium content in the diet is 3.0% to 3.5% to meet the production needs of the layer. If the calcium content in the diet exceeds 4.0%, adverse symptoms will occur: on the one hand, the palatability of the feed will be worse, and the feed intake of the flock will be reduced; on the other hand, it will cause the accumulation of urate in the laying hens and cause indigestion. And cause diarrhea, and severe gout symptoms may occur. Therefore, calcium supplementation in laying hens must be timely and appropriate.


  1. Calcium supplement method and effect

The calcium source feed can be placed alone, allowing the chickens to eat freely, or it can be mixed in the feed and fed. According to the experiment, the calcium source feed has a good effect on improving the egg production, the fertilization rate of the eggs, the hatching rate of the chicks, the serum calcium content and the thickness of the eggshell.


Automatic poultry chicken equipment manufacturers share the methods for reasonable calcium supplementation for laying hens. Farmers can supplement calcium for chickens according to the above methods, so that chickens can grow better and create more economic benefits for farmers.

Precautions for installation of poultry breeding equipment

The use of poultry chicken farming equipment to cooperate with chicken farming is very common in large-scale chicken farms. The use of chicken farming equipment has greatly improved the efficiency of chicken farming. Many farmers need to purchase the equipment. Install it by yourself, but when the farmers are unfamiliar with the principle of the parts during installation, problems may occur, which will affect the efficiency of the equipment in the future. Today, I will introduce to you what should be paid attention to when installing the chicken breeding equipment?

  • During operation, especially during installation and wiring, live operation is prohibited. Keep the operating environment dry and chicken battery cages to avoid the influence of humidity on the equipment. Keep the space. The drive of layer breeding equipment can be ventilated at any time.
  • Need to deal with static electricity well. Avoid excessive vibration during cultivation, and analyze the installation method and use anti-vibration measures to protect the equipment.
  • Farmers should apply lubricating oil on the mating surfaces of the parts when installing the moving parts. This can avoid dry friction and losses.
  • During the installation process, farmers must check the relative parts with marks, and must ensure the correct mutual position and movement relationship between them. For example, in the assembly of the timing gear in the gear chamber of a diesel engine, it is necessary to ensure the correct timing of fuel supply and gas distribution.
  • Farmers should try their best to use special tools and special equipment when installing. The choice of tools has a lot to do with installation efficiency. The correct tools can improve efficiency and ensure assembly quality.
