Chicken cage manufacturers tell you: how to treat and prevent chicken pecking disease?

Chicken pecking disease is a very common phenomenon in large-scale farming. Due to improper feeding and management, the density of chickens is too large, or the feed mix is improper, and the chickens lack essential nutrients. Chicken pecking happens. The main manifestations are: pecking anus, pecking feathers, pecking eggs, pecking toes, pecking head and so on. Once an individual appears, it is easy to infect the group, resulting in disability and even death. And how to prevent and treat chicken pecking disease, let the chicken cage manufacturer tell you.


一, How to prevent


  1. Pay attention to the stocking density when using poultry battery cages. The flock should not be too crowded, and the coop should be cleaned frequently. Separate the groups, especially the chickens that like to peck at random, isolate them and feed them separately. The temperature of the brooding room should be moderate to ensure that the young chickens can have a spacious venue for full exercise.


  1. Feed the chickens on time every day and provide enough water for the chickens. The feed should not be too simple to ensure the intake of amino acids, minerals and vitamins for chickens.


  1. Pay attention to good ventilation in the house to reduce the content of harmful gases in the house.


  1. Control the humidity to avoid crowding, irritability and pecking addiction of chickens caused by environmental discomfort.


  1. Cut off the beak, cut toes, and cut the crown in time to improve the structure of the chicken cage.


  1. An egg-laying box is installed in the hen house to prevent the occurrence of egg pecking and anus pecking.



二 Treatment methods


  1. For chickens already suffering from pecking addiction and pecking chickens, timely select, isolate and feed them separately. To prevent the occurrence of re-proliferation, the spread of vices.


  1. Reasonably reduce and control the density of chicken raising, and pay attention to the hygienic cleaning and regular disinfection of the chicken house.


  1. For feather pecking caused by insufficient calcium sulfate in the feed, natural gypsum can be ground into powder and added to the feed, 0.5~3 grams per chicken per day. For vicious habits such as toe pecking, anus pecking or wing pecking caused by lack of minerals or table salt, appropriate amount of table salt can be added to the grain feed for treatment. However, it cannot be fed for a long time, otherwise salt poisoning can easily occur.


In addition, better automatic chicken raising equipment can also effectively reduce the occurrence of the above situation. 


Chicken cage manufacturers are here to remind you that implementing scientific breeding methods, building a comfortable growth environment, providing better feeding feeds, and systematic and standard personnel management can reduce the occurrence of various emergencies and ensure the healthy growth of chickens. Improve the economic efficiency of chicken farms.

How to properly use baking soda in poultry farming?

Baking soda, also known as sodium bicarbonate, is a weak alkaline substance that has been widely used in the food industry, sanitation and family life. Today, the chicken cage manufacturers will introduce the use of baking soda in chicken production, and its common functions will now be introduced for the reference of farmers.


  1. Increase the egg production rate: People have experimented that feeding a feed containing 0.1~0.5% baking soda in an environment with a temperature of 25~30°C can increase the egg production rate of laying hens and improve the quality of eggshells.
  2. Anti-heat stress: In the early stage of heat stress, chickens will cause metabolic acidosis due to heat. Drinking water with baking soda can effectively reduce the symptoms of acidosis and play an anti-heat stress role.
  3. Promote broiler growth: Adding 0.1~0.5% baking soda to broiler feed can promote its growth rate and improve chicken quality.
  4. Stomach strengthening: Adding baking soda to the feed can neutralize excess gastric acid, dissolve mucus, increase feed intake and improve digestibility.
  5. Treatment of gizzard erosion: Due to the excessive secretion of gastric acid caused by histamine substances, the glandular stomach becomes inflamed and gizzard erodes. Baking soda can effectively relieve symptoms and promote recovery.


The above is the role of baking soda in automated poultry farms shared by poultry equipment manufacturers for farmers.
