The main points of management for raising laying hens in winter

In winter, the temperature is low. To keep the laying hens from stopping production, it is necessary to take effective feeding and management measures on the temperature, light, and nutrition requirements of the hen house.

Increase feeding frequency. In winter, the temperature is low, and laying hens must take enough nutrients from the feed to resist the cold in order to ensure their high yield performance. Farmers can use the automatic feeding system to increase the number of feedings to encourage the laying hens to eat more.

Increase light. Light can not only increase the physique of the laying hens, but also promote the vigor and vigor of the laying hens. Therefore, artificial light should be supplemented in winter due to the shortening of time to stimulate the laying hens to produce more eggs. Electric lights are usually installed in the chicken coop to allow the hens to receive 15 hours of light. It is also possible to turn on the lights in the morning and turn off the lights in the evening to make the laying hens have a longer light time of 05 to 1 hours in winter than in summer and autumn.

Increase nutrition. In the cold winter, the energy consumption of the laying hens increases and they need to be fed from the feed. Therefore, the energy level in the feed for laying hens should be appropriately increased in winter. In addition, appropriate increase in the amount of vitamins in the feed in winter can increase egg production in laying hens.

Keep the chicken house warm. The suitable living temperature for laying hens is 18℃, and the temperature of the chicken house in winter should be kept above 10℃ as much as possible. Generally, wind barriers are set up around the chicken coop, and plastic sheets are placed on the doors and windows to block leaks in the walls.

Now with the advancement of breeding technology, farmers can buy automatic chicken breeding equipment to help chickens lay eggs even in the severe winter.

How to control the temperature of chicken coops using poultry battery cages in winter?

In winter, the temperature is relatively low. The breeding industry will encounter various troubles, which requires the breeders to do a good job in temperature control and management of the chicken cages.

The first thing to do is to ventilate. When the air in the chicken house is not good in the morning, it can be properly ventilated in a short period of time. If you want to increase the amount of ventilation, you should increase it in between. It is best to choose to do it when the temperature is higher at noon. The ventilation time is shorter each time, and the ventilation frequency is a little more. It must be fully ventilated. If you want to increase the number of exhaust fans, carefully observe the performance of the chickens after opening them, and proceed without adverse reactions.

Second, Master the humidity of the chicken house. If the humidity of the chicken house is high, it is easy to breed bacteria and cause the chickens to get sick. This requires farmers to monitor the humidity of the automatic chicken battery cages. Such as: use ventilation and temperature to adjust the humidity of the chicken house. If the humidity is high, the ventilation will increase faster and the temperature will drop slower. If the humidity is low, the ventilation will increase slower and the temperature will drop faster.

Third,control the temperature of the chicken house. The temperature of the chicken coop is best controlled at 18 degrees Celsius to 23 degrees Celsius. Strictly control the air inlet, make the inlet wind blow upward, and don't let the cold wind blow the chicken directly. Prevent chickens from getting sick from cold wind. Prepare before winter begins. For example: cleaning the dust of the heater. When the heater is turned on for the first time, let its shutters be parallel, so that the hot air fills the chicken coop evenly.

How to make the chicken cages dry after heavy rain?

Farmers know that chickens are afraid of moisture. They like to live in a dry environment. In summer, rainstorms are prone to cause high humidity in the air. If the poultry chicken cages are not well ventilated, it is easy to cause mildew of feed and litter. This will be conducive to the multiplication of a variety of pathogens and make chickens sick. Therefore, feeding and management must be particularly meticulous. In general, the following points must be noted:

Replace the litter in time. Days of overcast and rain caused prolonged dampness. Make the litter in the chicken house damp and moldy, and then it is easy to cause the chickens to get sick.

The rain causes high humidity in the chicken house and the air is dirty. Therefore, it is necessary to strengthen the ventilation of the chicken house. Use exhaust fans to exhaust the dirty and harmful gases in the chicken house.

Feed less frequently. Feed the feed reasonably and try to eat the feed that was fed at the same time, so as to prevent the feed from being contaminated by mud and rainwater in the trough. Leftover materials should also be removed in time to ensure cleanliness and hygiene.

Control the amount of water you drink. Excessive humidity in the chicken house in rainy weather can easily inhibit the water metabolism of the chicken body. If the chicken drinks too much water, it is easy to cause enteritis. As a result, the chicken flock is diarrhea, and the humidity in the chicken house is continuously increased, which causes the disease to spread. Therefore, in the rainy season, the water consumption of chickens should be properly controlled, and the water should be changed frequently to avoid infection after the chickens drink dirty water.

The above is what chicken farmers should do in heavy rain. Farmers who want to better raise chickens can use automatic poultry cage equipment. Its supporting automatic battery cage system can make farmers more worry-free and better management, like encountering extreme weather.

Importance of drinking quality water for poultry chicken

As a nutrient, water, like feed, plays an important role in maintaining the health and production performance of livestock and poultry. So When using poultry chicken cages, how should farmers ensure the quality of the water?

 Under normal circumstances, we will not drink the water if the water quality is not up to the requirement of being drinkable. In fact, it is the same for chickens. Many factors affect water quality, the most important of which are the water source, the number of bacteria, hardness and total dissolved solids. If the water supplied to the chicken house is not well managed, it may spread some pathogenic microorganisms to the flock. The drinking water system of the chicken house can provide an ideal environment for the growth of bacteria.

The chicken farm should collect water samples at least twice a year, and collect the microbial and mineral content of the water. Water samples should be collected from the start and end of the drinking water system. To ensure that the water is fresh when sampling, you can run the drinking system for a few minutes before sampling.

The pH of the water also affects the water quality and the amount of water the chickens drink. The pH of purified water is 7. If the pH of the water exceeds 8, the chickens will reduce their water intake and feed intake, resulting in a decline in the performance of the chickens. If the pH of the water drops below 6, the use of the drinking water system for vaccination and the delivery of medicines will be adversely affected.

Drinking nipples used in the drinking system. It is important to test the amount of water provided by the drinking nipples and to equip the number of drinking nipples reasonably to ensure that the chickens can drink enough water. Using drinking nipples, it is recommended to rinse and disinfect the drinking system between different batches of chickens.

Solve the drinking water quality problems in production, and filter and disinfect the water source water quality problems. Solve the problem of drinking water quality in production, and filter and disinfect the problem of water source water quality. Farmers should pay attention to the supply of drinking water to the chickens in the  battery chicken cages, and understand the drinking water needs of the chickens in the chicken farm, so as to realize the efficient feeding and management of the chickens.
