The daily routine of a good poultry farm

A well-run chicken farm requires regular inspections of the farm's external and internal environment. You must be aware of possible problems and resolve them as soon as possible. What should you check for your chicken farm? Please see below, poultry equipment manufacturers will introduce to you today,


  1. Are there mice in your chicken farm?

A chicken farm is a pleasant enough place for mice. Many pipes provide place and chicken feed to feed them. There are four ways that rats can cause damage.

  1. Maintain the internal environment of the chicken farm

You should do two tours on your farm.

  1. Harmful gases (ammonia and hydrogen sulfide)
  2. Temperature


  1. Ventilation

With good ventilation, the chickens are alive. On the contrary, chickens will be depressed, especially in winter, keep ventilation.


  1. Feces

Be careful, the chicken droppings are wet with blood.


  1. Humidity

High humidity is good for microorganisms, and low humidity is bad for the chicken respiratory tract.


  1. Number of dead chickens

Some dead chickens are acceptable. Under normal circumstances, the mortality rate of pullets does not exceed 0.005%, chickens does not exceed 0.01%, and laying hens do not exceed 0.03%. If the number of deaths is high, the dead chickens must be dissected and the cause identified.


  1. Lighting

Laying hens need supplemental lighting, which should be carried out under the guidance of auditing.

Persons with special skills.


  1. Feeding system

Battery chicken cages are kept stable, eat less and drink more, chickens may get sick.

How Your Poultry Industry Can Change With Battery Cage Systems?

"Since I moved 10,000 chickens from deep litter to the battery cage systems, their egg production has doubled". Using automatic poultry farming equipment is much easier than regular farming. Egg collection, feeding, watering, everything just got a whole lot easier.


Without coops, chickens suffer from diarrhea and shed feathers on the dusty floor. This will make them less productive. And hair loss is the result of tiny mites hiding on dusty floors and feeding on chickens at night. As a result, chickens end up losing feathers from scratching. But that's not the worst part, the blood strain is expelled with the waste, which is called coccidiosis. This affects their rearing system and egg production will decrease.




If battery cage systems are used, then the battery chicken cage system is hygienic, comfortable and safe for the birds. It's also cheaper and more efficient. And with more space to raise chickens, they can also be well cared for. Chicken manure can be automatically discharged from the chicken house, automatic feeding, automatic drinking water, and automatic chicken house environmental control can be realized. In this way, their feeding system is more complete, and egg production will increase.


Chickens are raised in poultry chicken cages with a maximum footprint of 450 to 525 square centimeters. This is four times more than normal poultry farming.


Let's think about what happens if you don't use any cages? Your chicken will be dirtier. Eggs will be dirtier, manure will produce ammonia, and your chickens will get sick. Now consider using a low-quality chicken cage, which is not much different from not using it at all.


Using a high-quality tier chicken cage will reduce labor costs because it requires less maintenance. And there will be no feed loss. In addition, with regard to manure storage systems, poor quality caged manure can become damp and produce a lot of ammonia gas, as well as small mites, causing flocks to lose hair and get sick. Unhealthy chicken can take a toll on your business. Unhealthy chickens will gradually lose their ability to produce, which will lead to even greater losses.

Cages can also reduce cannibalism and increase productivity. The casing system also reduces your housing space and will help you keep more chickens in a smaller space. Therefore, using a qualified cage should be your best bet to make your business more profitable. And a low-quality cage is just as bad as no cage at all.

The difference between battery cage system chicken and free-range chicken

The battery cage system chicken pen is much better for free-range chickens for the following 7 reasons.


Maximize space in battery chicken cage systems

A battery chicken cages can hold 96, 128, 180 or 240 birds. Which one to use depends on the choice of the farmer. These cages offer a high return on investment due to proper space management, reduced costs for purchasing medicines, feed management and reduced labor.


less labor

With the battery chicken cage system, farmers need less staff to work on the farm, reducing and increasing operating costs.


increased egg production

Egg production is much higher than in free-range systems because the movement of the chickens is limited in layer chicken cages as the chickens can conserve their energy for production. In a free-range system, chickens move around burning their energy in the process, resulting in lower yields



Reduce the risk of infection

In the battery cage system, the automatic chicken manure removal system cleans the manure, and the chickens cannot directly touch the manure. This means significantly less risk of infection and lower drug costs compared to free-range systems where chickens come into direct contact with manure that contains ammonia and is a serious health hazard.


reduce disease risk

The nightmare of most poultry farmers is disease risk, and most chicken diseases are caused by unsanitary cleaning of utensils. With the chicken cage system, the water is controlled, so the risk of contamination is reduced.


Low egg breaking rate

In battery layer cage systems, the chickens have no contact with the eggs and the eggs roll out of their reach, unlike free-range systems where the chickens break some eggs resulting in a loss of income.


Easier Chicken Feeding and Drinker System

In poultry cage systems to raising chicken, feeding and watering the chickens is much easier and no waste occurs, but in a free-range system, feeding and watering the chickens is stressful and the chickens may experience waste while walking through the feed, Perch on the feeder and soil the feed or trip over the drinker and soil the litter. Wet litter can lead to coccidial infestations, which are also a serious health hazard to chickens.


The above are the advantages of battery cage system compared to free-range chickens. I hope it can help you to have guidance in choosing the way of poultry farming.

Breeding chickens with battery cage systems has become a trend

Battery cage systems have been experiencing a surge of growth in the last 10 years. It shows that the use of battery chicken cages to carry out intensive chicken raising has become the choice of the vast majority of book farmers. Automatic chicken battery cage systems dominate the poultry equipment market among other equipment.


In terms of poultry type, the battery cage system market is dominated by chickens, followed by ducks. Consumption of chicken is growing faster than other meats because less feed consumption is required to produce a kilogram of chicken than an equivalent amount of pork or beef. Some religious boundaries also play an important role in restricting beef and pork consumption worldwide, which does not apply to poultry. The chicken segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR.



The Asia-Pacific region, which includes countries such as China, Japan, India, Thailand and Vietnam, has seen an increase in meat consumption rates. Economic growth and shifting consumer preference for value-added food products are leading the market growth. As observed over the past decade, the demand for animal protein in these countries has increased.


Poultry equipment manufacturers provide cost-effective automatic chicken battery cage systems, including  chicken cages for sale, manure removal systems, nipple drinking systems, automatic egg collection systems, automatic feeding systems, ventilation systems, environmental control systems, lighting systems, etc. Poultry live and grow in a comfortable and clean environment.

Is there any special poultry farming equipment for hen manure treatment?

Is there any special poultry framing equipment for laying hen manure treatment?

Laying hen manure treatment has special equipment called automatic poultry manure removal system. Chicken manure contains more than 70% moisture and a large amount of chicken feathers. The manure produced by broilers is finer than the manure particles produced by laying hens, and the processing requirements for laying hens are also higher. Before the deep processing of chicken manure, the first and essential thing is to dehydrate the chicken manure, also known as chicken manure solid-liquid separation, chicken manure dry and wet separation.

The chicken manure dehydrator pumps the chicken manure into the equipment through a submerged pump or a cutting pump. Then, the manure and sewage are separated by screw extrusion, and the wet chicken manure with a water content of more than 70% can be processed into dry chicken manure with a water content of about 35%. It can be directly bagged, or simply dried and air-dried for long-term storage.



When using battery chicken cages to raise laying hens, the manure in the cages can be cleaned up in the following ways: 

In breeding practice, the traditional scraper cleaning method is changed to woven bags to pick up the manure. It saves time and effort, is clean and hygienic, reduces the occurrence of ammonia gas, and increases the utilization rate of the chicken house. The method is: cut the old woven bag with scissors, crimp and sew it well, then according to the size of the chicken house, connect the woven bag to a rectangular cloth, tie four wire hooks at the four corners, and pick it with a thin stick. Take one corner from under the cage and send it directly to the opposite side of the cage to hang on the cage frame, and then hang the other corner in the same way, and hang the two outer corners directly on the cage frame. When the manure comes out, take off the four hooks, shake the chicken manure toward the center, hold the two corners of the cloth with both hands, pull out the whole cloth, then fold the four corners, send it to the outside of the house, and remove the chicken. Dump out. After the cloth has been cleaned, it can be reused. It is advisable to excrete feces once every 3-5 days.

Chicken cage manufacturers talk about how to save laying hen feed

With the vigorous development of the chicken industry in recent years. The concept of chicken farmers has changed, the breeding method has changed, and more and more farmers are leading the use of automatic poultry farming equipment. However, during the use of raising laying hens, some farmers due to lack of professional knowledge and experience, lead to excessive feed consumption, resulting in a lot of economic expenses. Is there any way to save feed without affecting the health of laying hens? Let the chicken cage manufacturer explain it to you below.

  1. Select laying hens with good breeds

Due to the rapid development of laying hens with good varieties, strong disease resistance, early maturity and high yield, they not only consume less feed, but also produce high-quality eggs. For example, Isa chickens generally start laying eggs at 150-180 days old, and lay 200-260 eggs per year. By choosing such high-quality laying hens, you can obtain greater benefits with less feed.

  1. Rational use of additives

In the feeding process of laying hens, adding an appropriate amount of feed additives can not only meet the necessary nutritional needs of the chickens, but also reduce the consumption of feed and increase the weight of eggs. Since there are many types of additives on the market, the functional effects are also very different. During the breeding period, the corresponding additives should be reasonably selected according to the actual needs of the chickens. For example, adding to the feed and stirring it can effectively prevent and control the intestinal diseases of chickens, improve the feed conversion rate, and allow the chickens to fully absorb the feed they eat.



  1. Timely improvement of feeding tools and methods

Many farmers are keen to use wet feed, although this type of feed tastes better, and the chickens have a strong desire to eat. However, due to the hot weather and high temperature in summer, acidification is easy to occur. In winter, the temperature is too low and the feed is too cold. Eating chickens is easy to induce disease, or is unwilling to eat, resulting in waste. It is recommended to feed dry food to ensure adequate water supply. In addition, each feeding should not be too much, wait until the feed in the trough is completely eaten before supplementing.


  1. Eliminate inferior chickens in time

For some roosters that have been raised for too long, timely elimination and replacement of new roosters can not only maintain the fertilization rate of eggs, but also save feed. Some hens that are sick, weak and difficult to lay eggs are eliminated in time to reduce feed waste.

The above are some methods and means of how to save feed during the use of the layer cage systems to breed chicken as described by the chicken cage manufacturers. Hope to bring some help to your farming!

Pay attention to the skills of raising hens and drinking water in the layer cage systems

In the process of using the automatic layer cage system to raise chickens, all aspects of feeding and management will directly affect the egg production rate of the laying hens. As we all know, water is the source of life. Similarly, drinking water is very important in the growth and production of laying hens, especially in the laying period of laying hens. Whether the drinking water is reasonable will directly affect the laying rate of laying hens. So how should the laying hens drink water for the laying hens during the laying period?



  1. Observe the drinking water rules and change the drinking water temperature according to the seasons: During the breeding process, farmers should be good at discovering and summarizing. Among them, we can know from daily observations that these three water drinking peaks occur every day for laying hens. 8 am, 12 noon, 6 pm. Therefore, farmers in these three stages must ensure that the laying hens drink enough water. If the laying hens cannot drink water or drink insufficient water during these three periods, it will quickly affect their egg production and health, like the winter weather. When it is cold and the temperature is low, farmers can drink warm water for laying hens. Warm water chickens love to drink it. It can also reduce body heat loss and enhance cold resistance, which is beneficial to chicken health and egg production. In hot summer, farmers can drink cold water for laying hens, which can speed up the free-range breeding of laying hens and increase the feed intake of laying hens.


  1. Pay attention to changing the water consumption of laying hens: the water consumption required for the growth and production of laying hens in different seasons is different. Under normal circumstances, the daily water requirement of each chicken is about 110 ml in winter. About 280ml in summer. About 200 ml in spring and autumn. But when egg production increases, so does water demand. At this time, the egg production of chickens is vigorous and the metabolism is strengthened. Not only does the formation of eggs require water, but also the chickens eat a lot and need more water.


  1. Water supply law: pay special attention to water supply during the peak egg production period of chickens, otherwise it will directly affect their egg production and health. Especially in the three peak times of drinking water for laying hens mentioned above, there should be no shortage of water.


The above is the laying hen equipment that the chicken cage manufacturers have arranged for farmers to raise laying hens. The "three skills" of scientific water supply for laying hens during egg laying are the key knowledge of laying hen breeding technology. When raising and managing laying hens, laying hen farmers should ensure the adequate and healthy drinking water of laying hens. Thereby, the egg production rate and egg production quality of laying hens can be improved, so as to increase the realization of laying hens' production benefits.

Misconceptions about automated broiler equipment for raising chickens to cool down

In the process of raising chickens with automatic broiler equipment in summer, it is a job that farmers must do to prevent heatstroke and cool down the chickens in the chicken house. Scientific and effective cooling can ensure the healthy growth of chickens and a comfortable growth and production environment. Reduce the occurrence of flock stress caused by high temperature in summer. However, many farmers blindly carry out cooling work because they are not proficient in cooling technology, and the results are counterproductive. The following chicken cage manufacturers will tell farmers about several common mistakes in cooling broiler equipment.


  1. Only pay attention to the heatstroke prevention and cooling work of laying hens: Many farmers only pay attention to the cooling work of laying hens during the laying period. actually not. As the age increases, the required ambient temperature should gradually decrease. If it is one week in the chick, because the required ambient temperature is 32-35 °C, it will not have much effect. In the second week, and even thereafter, the required ambient temperature should drop by 1°C every 3 days until it drops to 21-18°C. If it is summer brooding, the outside temperature is often above 30 ℃. When the ambient temperature is too high, the feed intake of the chicks will also be reduced due to the influence of the high temperature. Thus affecting the growth and development of chicks. In addition, for laying hens in the breeding stage, it will be due to high temperature. This leads to a decrease in feed intake and a low weight of the chicken, which will affect the start of production and the continued high yield of the chicken.


  1. Planting too many leafy trees: Many farmers plant trees around when building chicken coops, thinking that they can shade and reduce the temperature of the chicken coop. Although the starting point is good, but there are more trees, more trees, all kinds of birds, insects, mosquitoes, flies, etc. will increase. These bugs are the source of disease transmission and can lead to major outbreaks in chicken farms. A good idea is to use shade nets around the coop. If a wet curtain is installed in the house, a shading net can be installed outside the automatic poultry environmentcontrol system-wet curtain to prevent direct sunlight from weakening the cooling effect of the wet curtain.



  1. The chicken feed is too finely processed: the high temperature in summer will cause the chickens to drink more water. Therefore, when manure is produced every day, farmers can see pelleted feed. Farmers think that the chickens have not been digested, so the feed is processed a little more, which is conducive to digestion. But this is a wrong notion. The water intake in summer is 4 times that in winter. Therefore, in summer, the amount of feed intake decreases, the amount of water intake increases, and it is normal that there is pelletized feed in the feces. Farmers need not worry too much. Because chickens do not have specialized urination organs due to their high water intake. So the water you drink will be quickly excreted with the cloaca. As a result, some feeds stay in the digestive tract for a shortened time and are not fully digested. If the chicken feed is processed too finely, the palatability will become poor, resulting in a further reduction in the chicken feed intake, which has a greater impact.


  1. It is convenient to add too much sodium bicarbonate to the water: In order to help chickens cool down and cool down, many farmers add sodium bicarbonate and vitamin C to the drinking water at the same time. Adding sodium bicarbonate can effectively regulate the acid-base balance in chickens and significantly improve the ability of chickens to resist heat stress. This is a wrong concept.


  1. Immunization with drinking water is not carried out correctly: In order to prevent the outbreak of infectious diseases in chickens in summer, the vaccine is vaccinated through drinking water. However, when carrying out drinking water immunization, farmers should reasonably carry out the above internal immunization, the selection and preparation of vaccines and the correct method of drinking water immunization, etc. The farmers must master it well. Otherwise, the phenomenon of drinking water immunity failure is easy to occur.


The above five points are some misconceptions and practices that farmers have in summer broiler equipment for raising chickens in the summer broiler cage equipment summarized by automatic chicken cage manufacturers for heatstroke prevention and cooling. It is hoped that farmers can avoid mistakes in the future breeding process through the above understanding.

Using automatic chicken raising equipment can reduce feed waste

When our market personnel conducted market research, they found that many farmers had a headache when raising chickens about how to reduce the waste of feed. Because the cost of feed will almost account for 60-70% of the cost of raising chickens. Is there any feasible way to reduce the cost of feed?


Poultry equipment manufacturers believe that in order to reduce the production cost of chicken raising and increase the economic benefits of chicken raising. For farmers, it is necessary to increase income and reduce expenditure. That is to find low-cost feed products of the same quality while reducing feed consumption and waste.


For low-priced feed products, farmers need to do relevant market research when purchasing. Fully automatic chicken raising equipment reduces the purchase price of feed and saves production costs. The transportation distance of feed can also be shortened appropriately. Because transportation costs are also included in the price of the feed itself.



For reducing feed consumption and waste. It is necessary for farmers to reduce the water content of the feed itself when purchasing. Ensure that the nutrients in the feed will not decrease with the increase of moisture. It is also necessary to adopt a good feeding method and use the energy-saving trough in the automatic chicken raising equipment to reduce the waste of feed.


Due to the increase in market demand and the increase in labor costs, fully automated chicken raising equipment is more and more widely used in various large farms. Because the drinking water technology, automatic feeding technology, wet curtain evaporative cooling technology, vertical ventilation technology and welfare and healthy breeding technology in the fully automatic chicken breeding equipment can provide convenience for many farmers, on the one hand, reduce labor costs. On the other hand, it also increases the income of farmers.


In addition, the emergence of fully automated chicken raising equipment is helpful for further strengthening chicken raising engineering technology, environmental regulation, manure treatment and utilization, breeding facilities and equipment, etc. It also has good significance for accelerating the organization and industrialization of the animal husbandry industry structure, improving the overall scientific and technological level of the chicken industry, and ensuring the healthy and sustainable development of the chicken industry.
