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chicken bottom net, when the chicken needs to be discharged later, the bottom net part of all equipment can be withdrawn, and the broiler in the cage will fall on the manure belt, and the conveyance of the manure belt , The broiler is transferred to the lateral transfer device at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.



Chicken density of automated breeding equipment

The number of chickens that can be accommodated per square meter of breeding area for chickens raised by Fully automatic poultry farming equipment for chicken is called the stocking density, and the feeding and drinking position of each chicken is also an indispensable condition for mastering the stocking density. If the density is too high, the chicken flocks are crowded, the environmental humidity is increased, the feeding is uneven, the chicken flocks are not well developed, and they are susceptible to diseases and pecking habits. The physique of the chickens becomes weak, the mortality rate increases, and the growth rate decreases. Although the density is small, it is good for the survival and growth of the chicks, but it is not good for heat preservation and uneconomical. The density should be adjusted according to factors such as the type, breed, brooding method, season, age, and ventilation of the chicks. Automatic breeding equipment cage brooding should sparse the group as the age increases. The density should be reduced by about 30% at the age of 3-4 weeks, and the density should be reduced by about 15% at the age of 5-6 weeks.


Egg-type chicks at the age of 1-4 weeks occupy a trough position of 2 to 2.5 cm each, and increase to 5.0 cm each at 5-6 weeks of age. If a bucket is used, each bucket can feed 35 chicks at the age of 1-4 weeks, and each bucket can feed 25 chickens at the age of 5-6 weeks. If a sink is used, the location of the sink for each chick from 0-6 weeks old is 1 to 2 cm.


Broiler chickens are suitable for higher-density rearing, but it also depends on specific conditions. Generally, on-line flat rearing has a higher density than bedding ground, and the ventilation conditions are good, and the density can be increased appropriately. In winter, the stocking density can be increased by 10%, and in summer, it should be reduced by 10%-20%. Because broiler chickens grow fast, they are generally available at 40-45 days of age, so the stocking density of their automated breeding equipment is calculated based on the number of chickens per square meter when they leave the factory. Reasonable feeding density can provide the chicks with equal opportunities for drinking and eating, which is conducive to improving the uniformity, and can also prevent the habit of the chicks from pecking the anus and feathers. At the same time, pay attention to the air quality and ventilation requirements of the chicken house.


What kind of environment should good chicken raising equipment provide for chickens?

Chicken farming equipment

The cultivation of chickens is the same as that of people, creating a good living environment, which is conducive to the healthy growth of chickens, so as to achieve the purpose of increasing the income of chickens. How to create a good living environment has put forward new requirements for chicken breeding equipment. On the one hand, chicken-raising equipment must meet the growth habit of chickens, on the other hand, it must meet the requirements of improving the efficiency of chicken farmers and reduce costs from the source.


For example, in winter, you need to turn on the heating equipment to heat up to keep the layers warm. Of course, for the different requirements of automated chicken raising equipment, the decisive factor is the difference between the mode of automated chicken raising and the way of laying hens. However, some basic chicken raising equipment is required, such as automatic feeding equipment, automatic drinking water equipment, manure cleaning equipment, egg picking equipment, temperature control equipment, etc.





Feeding equipment: the first is the feed tower, which prevents pests from entering, and ensures the fresh and high-quality feed; second, the automatic feeder, which is different from the traditional long trough, which is narrow and easy to cause food waste. The structure of the automatic driving feeding system of the chicken farming equipment is reasonable, and the height of the homogenizer can be adjusted according to the feed intake of the chicken, and the feeding amount can be adjusted. It can realize one-key automatic feeding, the plastic trough has a reasonable structure, saves feed, and is economical and durable.


Egg collection equipment: The automatic egg collection system uses wear-resistant, durable, and long-life egg collection belts to improve efficiency, save labor and reduce egg breakage.


Poultry Manure Removal System equipment: A good chicken environment requires regular cleaning of chicken manure. Manual cleaning or scraper can be used to clean the feces. However, the scraper is easily damaged and inconvenient to maintain. The chicken raising equipment developed by Tian Rui Animal Husbandry adopts scraper-type manure removal, which does not require labor, is clean and efficient, and reduces environmental pollution.


Chicken coop: It can achieve high-density breeding of up to 10 floors, maximize land utilization, and reduce construction investment and management costs. The cage space is high, the air circulation is good, and the sanitary conditions are greatly improved, which effectively suppresses the incidence of chickens. It is suitable for closed chicken houses, which automatically controls ventilation and temperature to ensure that the environment in the chicken house meets the needs of chickens.


What are the precautions for construction of layer breeding equipment

1. Layer breeding is gradually becoming large-scale and intensive. In recent years, the number of farmers with a number of layer hens breeding below 1,000 has been declining, and the breeding scale of tens of thousands has been increasing. Although the construction of large-scale farms is relatively fast, the overall proportion of large-scale farms is relatively low, and it is now changing and developing in the direction of large-scale and intensification.


2. The technology of layer production environment control is gradually achieving refinement. In terms of environmental control of layer houses, environmental issues can be summarized into three categories: one is light environment control technology; the other is temperature environment control technology; the other is dust and other air quality control technology in the house. Traditional chicken-raising environment regulation technology mainly includes regulation of light environment, air environment and water environment.


3. There is an urgent need for automation of layer cage breeding equipment . The demand for automation and intelligence of breeding equipment is constantly increasing. The development of investment in facilities and equipment is also fast.


4. The development of air environment purification and efficient disinfection technology. From the perspective of dust control and biological safety, most fields are adopting the spray disinfection mode in the house. The research and development of disinfectants are generally based on bacterial lesions, and a method of use for a certain kind of bacteria. After a period of time, the bacteria will develop resistance, so it is very troublesome to use different disinfectants alternately. Now a new type of highly acidic electrolyzed water disinfection process and equipment has been developed. Now a new type of highly acidic electrolyzed water disinfection process and equipment has been developed. Taking tap water as the main raw material, adding dilute hydrochloric acid for electrolysis, the equipment manufacturing and production operation cost is low, and the production efficiency is high. The new slightly acidic electrolyzed water is highly efficient, broad-spectrum, stable in sterilization, without any residue and pollution to the laying hens. The future of laying hen breeding equipment is green and environmentally friendly.



Precautions for construction of layer breeding equipment

Farmers need to purchase layer cage breeding equipment when raising layer hens, so what are the precautions when we install the equipment?




1. During the operation of the equipment, it is strictly forbidden to personally observe the operation status of the equipment and open the related inspection ports for maintenance. If you really need to observe the operating conditions of the relevant components during operation, you need professionals to operate according to regulations and be equipped with necessary personal protective measures.


2. During inspection, repair and maintenance, the staff must ensure that the main power switch is turned off and the main power switch is blocked, otherwise it may cause serious injury.


3. The installation, overhaul or maintenance of electrical equipment related to this equipment needs to be operated by professional electrical operators in accordance with the regulations, otherwise it may cause serious injury.


4. The protective parts of the equipment are an important part of the equipment and cannot be removed at will. If it is damaged, it must be repaired or replaced in time.


5. Two travel switches are installed on the head and tail of the machine, and the feeder rail wheel will stop running when it touches any travel switch. Check whether the travel switch is sensitive or not. If it fails, it should be replaced in time. Otherwise, it is easy to damage the material truck and even cause more serious consequences.


6. There is an electric shock line at the lower part of the trough where the egg rolls down. This is to prevent the chicken from pecking the egg. Please do not touch it with your hands to avoid being injured.


7. The power cord of the power supply part needs to have a special protective wire cover, and the wiring part should have a special terminal block to prevent accidents caused by leakage.


 8. The use or maintenance operators chicken battery cage equipment must undergo professional skill training and operate in strict accordance with the relevant operating procedures.


9. There are related safety operation warnings on the equipment, please pay attention to and read these warnings carefully when using or maintaining.


Steps for disinfection of chicken farming machinery

The chicken house is the place where the chickens live, grow and produce. The laying hens stay in the hen house for up to 500 days, and the broiler chickens are also for more than 6 weeks. If the pathogen contaminates the hen house, no matter how healthy the chicken is, it will be threatened. The risk of disease, therefore, the disinfection of the chicken house is particularly important. On the one hand, the pathogens in the chicken house are brought in from outside, and on the other hand, they are left behind by the chicken house. A newly-built chicken farm often has few diseases at the beginning, and the disease will gradually increase after 2 to 3 years. This is the result of accumulated pollution in the chicken farm. Every time all the chickens are out of the house, the chicken house should be thoroughly disinfected before the next chicken is brought into the battery cage. This is an important measure to remove accumulated pollution in the chicken farm and ensure healthy chicken growth.




Chicken breeding machinery disinfection is to spray disinfection of chicken body, cage, chicken house and internal air with disinfectant liquid when there are chickens in the chicken house. The benefits of disinfection of chicken breeding equipment: it can kill pathogenic microorganisms in the air or attached to chicken feathers. In addition, spray disinfection can increase the humidity of the air in the chicken house, reduce dust, and cool down in hot weather.


1. When disinfecting chicken farming machinery , the nozzle should be at least one meter above the chicken, and the nozzle should be upward. Strictly prevent the flock's stress response.

2. It should be done once every 1 to 2 days when the temperature is high at noon in summer.

3. Clean the sprayer, try to use a special sprayer.

4. Using warm water in cold weather can reduce the stress of the flock.

5. Use low-concentration non-irritating or less irritating disinfectant for battery cage system.


The main points of adjusting feed for raising chickens in layer cages in summer

In summer, the weather is relatively hot. In the process of using poultry farming cages to raise chickens, the feed intake of the layers will decrease due to the increase in temperature. Then the nutrient intake will not meet the corresponding standards, which will affect the laying and growth of laying hens. Therefore, in order to ensure the healthy growth and production of laying hens, when summer comes, farmers need to adjust the feed in a timely manner so that the laying hens can obtain sufficient nutrition. The author is here to introduce the main points of adjusting the feed of the chicken in the summer layer cage.

1. Appropriately increase the nutrient concentration of feed. The summer weather is relatively hot, the feed intake of the laying hens will be reduced accordingly, and the intake of nutrients will also be reduced. Therefore, in order to maintain the laying performance of the laying hens and the healthy growth of the laying hens, farmers need to increase the concentration of nutrients in the summer feed so that the laying hens can take in the required nutrients to meet the standard.

2. Increase protein feed in an appropriate amount. In the summer, only by adding some protein to the feed can the farmers ensure the balance of amino acids, so as to meet the protein needs of the laying hens. Otherwise, too little protein intake will affect the laying rate of laying hens. In summer, farmers should add protein content to the feed, 1-2% higher than other seasons. However, it should be noted that animal protein such as fish meal should be appropriately reduced to increase palatability and increase feed intake.

3. Use feed additives. Many farmers choose to add some anti-stress additives to their feed in order to avoid heat stress in laying hens caused by high temperature. In order to avoid the degradation of egg production performance due to stress, it is necessary to pay attention to the dosage to prevent backfire.

4. Reasonable use of minerals. Raising laying hens in the hot summer, farmers need to appropriately increase the phosphorus content in the feed, while the calcium content in the feed can increase by 3.8%-4%. Try to balance calcium and phosphorus, and keep the ratio of calcium to phosphorus 4:1. In order not to affect the palatability, farmers can choose to supplement calcium separately when supplementing calcium so that chickens can eat freely to meet their physiological needs.

5. Adjust the feeding time. Farmers can appropriately increase the number of feedings when feeding laying hens in summer. You can choose to increase the number of feedings in the morning and evening when the temperature is relatively low, and the feed intake of the laying hens will be larger to ensure that the laying hens eat enough feed.

The above five points are the main points of the farmers who adjust the feed in the process of raising chickens in the summer layer battery cages for sale. I hope that the above description can help all the farmers. Thank you for your attention.



How about cascading automated chicken breeding equipment?

There are two types of automatic poultry farming equipment to be precise, one is stepped automatic chicken raising equipment, and the other is cascading automatic chicken raising equipment. Nowadays, most chicken farmers use stepped chicken raising equipment, and most chicken farms do not use automated equipment and rely on manual operations. However, every chicken farmer has also seen stepped automated farming. Chicken equipment, I have introduced the difference between stepped chicken breeding equipment and stacked chicken breeding equipment before. Today, I will focus on cascading chicken breeding equipment. Stacked chicken raising equipment, as the name suggests, is layered on top of each other. This kind of cage must have highly accurate automated equipment to complete the entire chicken raising process, and must have more advanced production techniques to ensure the durability of the cage. At present, the hot-dip galvanizing process is mainly used. Hot-dip galvanizing, also called hot-dip galvanizing, has a thick galvanized layer, is not easy to rust, and has high durability. It can be used for 15-20 years.




Features of stacked automatic chicken raising equipment:

1. Poultry farming battery cage system in nigeria, the number of layers can be selected, up to 10 layers, the breeding density per unit space is extremely high, the breeding output is large, and the benefit can be reasonably doubled.

2. Automatic feeding and drinking, saving manpower, improving labor productivity, and increasing egg-to-feed ratio.

3. Automatic egg collection , reducing labor costs, high efficiency and stability.

4. Automatically clean manure, dry and hygienic, save labor, clean manure many times a day, greatly reduce respiratory diseases of chickens.

5. Concentration of feeding reduces the amount of mobile contact of staff in the chicken house, which is beneficial to the prevention and control of chicken diseases.



The advantages and disadvantages of various ways of raising broilers

There are generally three types of broiler rearing: flat rearing, rack rearing and chicken battery cage equipment raise. So what are the advantages and disadvantages of these three methods?




The characteristics of net rearing

1. Grid rearing is better than flat rearing. First of all, net-frame culture keeps the chickens off the ground and avoids contact with ground excrement, which reduces the incidence of colibacillosis and coccidiosis. Secondly, it is convenient to clean the feces of the chicken house, which can effectively reduce labor intensity and labor time.

2. Net-frame breeding is better than cage-raised net-raised broiler chickens. The equipment is simple and the cost is low. Generally, the equipment investment for raising 100 chickens is between 30 and 40 yuan. The investment in cage equipment is calculated at the current market price, and the minimum is 200 yuan. In net-raised chicken, the net surface is softer than the cage, the activity area is open, and the chicken has a large range of activity. The common leg diseases and empyema in broilers are much smaller than in cages.

The main points of net cage culture technology

1. The construction of the chicken coop. It is best to choose a chicken coop far away from the village, with a slightly higher terrain and good ventilation. The houses should not be too low. A house with a too low temperature has poor insulation in winter and poor insulation in summer. There should be skylights on the roof, vents at the roots of the walls, doors and windows should not be too small, and the span of the house should be more than 5 meters.

2, heating up. Temperature is the key to increase the survival rate of broilers. After the chicken house is built, it is best to use land for heating equipment. The fire head of the kang should be built on the side of the gable wall close to the door of the house. After the fire dragon enters the house, it will be divided into left and right forks. It will join together on the other gable wall and be discharged from the chimney outside. The distance between the fire dragon and the left and right walls is about 0.75 to 1.50 meters.

3. The construction of the grid. Chicken nets are generally built about 1 to 1.2 meters above the ground, on both sides of the house, directly above the fire dragon, and a corridor of about 0.5 to 0.75 meters is left in the middle to facilitate work such as cleaning manure, adding food and water. The rack is built with bamboo poles or wooden sticks with a diameter of 2 to 2.5 cm, which can bear the weight of an adult chicken.

 4. Preparation before entering the young. To build a new chicken house, simply spray it with disinfectant once. For example, use Baidusha, Sanshiwang, etc. spray. If it is an old chicken house, first clean the equipment of the chicken house carefully, and then spray it with 2% NaOH solution. Then, it is fumigated with potassium permanganate and formaldehyde, and finally with Baidusha spray. After all the disinfection is completed, start to ignite and pre-warm, so that the temperature in the brooding range reaches 32-35℃. The warm-up time depends on the season and the outside temperature. Generally, warm up for 2 to 3 days in winter, 2 days in spring and autumn, and 1 day in summer. Check the thermometer at any time to see if the temperature meets the requirements. Preheat the stove to prevent gas poisoning.

5. Management after entering the young. After entering the chicks, drink water for the chicks first, and add electrolytic multivitamins and glucose in the drinking water to reduce the stress during transportation. The temperature after entering the chicks is the best standard for the comfort of the flock. If the flock is far away from the heat source, and there is the phenomenon of mouth breathing, it indicates that the temperature is high. If the chickens are close to the heat source and crowded together, it indicates that the temperature is low. The chickens are evenly scattered on the edge of the heat source, indicating that the temperature is moderate. Generally, the temperature in the previous week was 32-35°C, and then it would drop by about 3°C ​​every week, and finally 21°C would be more appropriate. Broilers are in a suitable temperature range, and the ideal humidity is about 40-72%. Excessive humidity can induce a variety of diseases such as coccidiosis. Low humidity, increased dust in the air, and respiratory diseases are likely to occur.

Broilers generally use 24 hours of light. If one hour of darkness is given every day, the chickens can adapt to the dark environment. Once the power is cut off, they will not be crowded and suffocated. The principle of light
intensity for broilers is from strong to weak. At 1 to 2 weeks, there should be 2.7 watts of light per square meter. This can help the chicks to familiarize themselves with the environment and fully eat and drink. From the third week, the amount of light was changed to 0.7 to 1.3 watts per square meter. Strong light is harmful to chickens and hinders growth, while weak light can make chickens quiet, which is good for growth and fattening.






Fresh air and proper circulation in the chicken house are prerequisites for raising broilers. Enough oxygen can keep the chickens in good health. Generally, the oxygen content of the chicken house should be kept above 18%. Avoid excessive ammonia in the house. Inhaling too much ammonia will irritate the trachea, cause tracheitis, conjunctivitis, ascites, etc., and increase the chance of coccidiosis infection. , Thereby reducing the conversion rate of feed and causing slow growth.

 Regular epidemic prevention can effectively prevent the occurrence of infectious diseases. For example, Newcastle disease, infectious bursal disease, bronchitis, etc., broiler chickens generally use 4 vaccines. In the first week, use H120 to drip the nose, drink the bursal vaccine in the second week, drink H52 in the third week, and use the bursal vaccine again in the fourth week.

By observing the flock, you can know the health status of the flock at any time. Healthy chickens have good spirits, quick reactions, and strong appetites. Unhealthy chickens are sluggish, slow to move, shrink their necks and close their eyes, slow to react, stand out, stand alone, hang down, and have poor spirits. Under normal circumstances, stool has a certain shape, gray-brown, and a certain amount of white substance attached to the surface. If the stool is abnormal, it means that you have been infected with the disease, and you must be diagnosed and treated in time to avoid economic losses


A-Frame layer cages and H-Frame stacked layer cages are both excellent poultry farming battery cages for our customers. Each type of layer farming cages have various tiers and specifications. Tell us your condition of your poultry farming, we will rcommend different plans for you.


The difference between broiler cage and free range system

Broiler cage breeding is a new revolution in broiler breeding methods. Broiler cage equipment breeding is currently one of the advanced production methods in broiler breeding industry. It has the advantages of saving land resources, improving breeding conditions, improving production performance, and reducing disease incidence. It can be effective It solves the problems of difficult land acquisition, serious environmental pollution and increased epidemics faced by the commercial broiler breeding industry, and this breeding method can greatly reduce breeding costs compared with online breeding, thereby increasing economic benefits.





After the transformation, the caged chicken house has complete facilities and equipment, with a high degree of mechanization and automation. Main technical features: First, it adopts multi-layer overlapping cage technology; second, it is equipped with an automatic manure removal conveyor belt to clean manure in time, reducing harmful gases such as ammonia and sulfur dioxide in the house; third, the entire cage is made of hot-dip zinc metal anticorrosive materials, Adding wear-resistant and anti-corrosive plastic nets to the bottom of the cage can effectively reduce the incidence of breast cysts and leg diseases in broilers; fourth, the chicken house is completely airtight, and the air intake and exhaust fans on both sides of the house are used for ventilation to maintain the air quality in the house. Install incandescent lamps to achieve artificial lighting reasonably, and use water heaters, wet curtains, and automatic spray devices to achieve temperature and humidity control in the house.



The survival rate of caged broilers was higher than that of free range system, and the average survival rate of batches increased by 2.82%. There are four main reasons for the analysis. First, the cage technology is changed from the traditional open greenhouse to a fully enclosed chicken house, which realizes the control of the small environment of the chicken house, so that the broiler breeding is no longer affected by external environmental factors, and effectively reduces the infection of disease and the spread of pathogens. Probability; Second, the inspection range of caged chicken houses is small. The breeder can find frail and sick chickens in time and select them for isolation and observation or raise them separately, which greatly improves the survival rate of chicks and the cure rate of diseased chickens; The third is that caged broilers have contact with each other and the range of activities is small, which can effectively control the spread of epidemics and reduce cross-infection; fourth, the chicken house is equipped with an automatic manure removal conveyor belt to clear the manure out of the chicken house in time, reducing the production of harmful gases such as ammonia and sulfur dioxide It effectively improves the breeding environment in the chicken house.





The above is about the difference between broiler cage and free range system. If farmers have the need to purchase breeding equipment, they can decide whether they are caged or free range system according to their own needs.



Main points of broiler cage chicken feeding and management

For broiler breeding, most farmers are now using stacked broiler cages for breeding. The use of broiler cages to raise chickens is more conducive to the management of the chickens by the farmers, and it is also more conducive to the rapid growth of the chickens. However, if the farmers do not use scientific and reasonable breeding methods to raise chickens, it will be difficult for the chickens to grow well. Today, I will give a detailed account of several key breeding points that farmers should pay attention to when using broiler cages to raise chickens.

1. Group the chickens

When the three-dimensional broiler cages are used to raise chickens, most of them use whole sports chicks. When the density of chicks is too high, group them in a timely manner to ensure that the weight of the chicks is even. The first grouping is usually 12-16 days old. The grouping is too early. Due to the small size, It is easy to drill through the gaps in the growing cage, and it will cause a waste of space and energy. The second grouping, at 25-28 days of age, this time grouping should place the heavier healthy parts in the lower layer, leaving the weak young. In summer, because the temperature is too high, grouping can be carried out in advance. In winter, the temperature is cold and the temperature difference between the upper and lower cages is large. You can appropriately postpone the cage time, and put one more in the lower cage to reduce the temperature difference between the upper and lower cages.

2. Control of temperature

   three-dimensional cage has three layers. When the temperature outside the chicken house is lower, the temperature difference between each layer is greater. Under normal circumstances, brooding are placed on the highest level, because the highest level has a higher temperature, which is conducive to saving heat. On the first day the chicks enter the farm, the temperature should be controlled at 33-34°C, which can also be adjusted according to the state of the chicks. When the temperature is right, the chickens are evenly distributed, lively, and have a strong appetite. When the temperature becomes low, shrink the neck and bow back and concentrate on the heat source. Squeezing each other, their bodies tremble. When the temperature is too high, water consumption increases, appetite decreases, breathing speeds up, and there is water in neck feathers. In the first week, the temperature drops to 30°C, and thereafter it drops by 2°C every week. The three-dimensional breeding density is high, which is 1 to 2°C lower than the flat rearing temperature. The heat stress of the chickens should avoid the phenomenon of reduced feed intake.

3. Disinfect the chicken house

   The chicken house should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected 5 days before the chicks are put into the house. Here, the farmers need to pay attention to avoid using caustic soda and other corrosive disinfectants for disinfection. After the chicks are in the house, the ground is cleaned every day, and the chickens are disinfected every other day.

4. Drinking water for chickens

   After the chicks are placed in the house, make sure that they can drink clean and sanitary water within 2 hours. For the first time the chicks drink water, use warm water at 25°C, add 5% glucose and 0.1% vitamin C to the water, and rinse the waterer frequently. Throughout the brooding period, drinking water should not be interrupted. From the second day of brooding, add anti-pullaria drugs to the drinking water.

Broiler breeding is divided into broiler flat-raising system and broiler cage-raising system. Generally, for farms with less than 30,000 chickens, it is recommended to use broiler flat-raising equipment, which is more cost-effective and requires less start-up capital. For breeding of more than 30,000 chickens, it is recommended to use broiler cage breeding equipment, which has a high degree of automation and saves time and effort, but the price is higher.


Temperature and light requirements of chicken house for layer breeding equipment

One of the main factors affecting the utilization rate of feed for chickens in layer chicken battery cage system is the environmental temperature where the chickens are located. In a low-temperature environment, chickens consume more food because they use part of their energy to maintain normal body temperature. In a high temperature environment, the feed intake of chickens will decrease, and the feed utilization rate will be relatively poor, because the biological cooling mechanism of chickens in hot conditions also requires energy. By providing the best environmental temperature, the chicken can use the various nutrients it has absorbed for growth and reduce it to regulate body temperature.






The temperature requirement of the chicks house: The house temperature requirement on the first day of brooding is slightly higher, reaching 33-35℃, and then dropping by 2-3℃ every week until it can stabilize within the range of 16-21 ℃.


Growing house temperature requirements: The most suitable house temperature for growing chicken house is 13-23℃, the lowest is 5℃, and the highest is 30℃.


Chickens are long-day animals. The chickens must have reasonable light in various feeding periods. Under suitable light conditions, the performance of chickens can be improved. When designing the lighting, the illuminance of caged chickens should be increased, generally at 3.3 to 3.5 watts/square meter. Usually when the lamp is 2 meters high, the lamp distance is 3 meters, 2.7 watts/square meter or 1 watt/0.371 square meters, the illuminance equivalent to 10 Lx can be obtained.


From the 3-7 days after the chicks emerge from the shell, the daily light is 23.5-24 hours, and then gradually shortened to 8-9 hours, until the age of 18-20 weeks. From then on, add 0.5 to 1.0 hours per week until it reaches 14 to 16 hours of light, and thereafter remain unchanged. Under normal circumstances, the brooding period (0-6 weeks of age) chickens require 23 to 18.5 hours of light, the light intensity is 10 to 30 Lx, and warm color light sources are the main ones; the light time requirement of the rearing period is 8 to 9 hours, The light intensity is 5 Lx, warm color light source; the light time requirement during the laying period is 14-16 hours, the light intensity is 10-12 Lx, and the cold color light source is the main.


Precautions for disinfection of chicken coops

1. Clean the environment and poultry farming equipment before disinfection

Before disinfection with chickens, pollutants such as dust on the roof, walls, and chicken house passages should be removed to improve the disinfection effect and save the amount of medicine.

2. Reasonable selection of disinfectants

The disinfectant should be broad-spectrum, high-efficiency, strong sterilization, toxicity, low irritation, no residue, and low corrosiveness to metal and plastic products.




3. Scientific preparation of pharmaceutical liquid

The preparation of disinfectant liquid should choose deep well water or tap water with less impurities, and the water temperature should generally be controlled at 30-45°C. The stability of the disinfection medicinal water becomes poor after dilution, so it should be prepared for immediate use and used up at once.

4. Selection of disinfection equipment and correct spraying

Sterilization equipment can choose high pressure power sprayer or knapsack sprayer. When spraying, spray it in a circle above the chicken house, the diameter of the mist particles is 80-120 microns. If the mist particles are too small, they can easily be sucked into the respiratory tract by chickens, causing pulmonary edema and even induce respiratory diseases; too large mist particles may cause uneven spraying and increase the humidity of the chicken house.

5. Master the frequency and amount of spray disinfection

Under normal circumstances, disinfect 2 to 3 times a week. The chicks are too small to be spray disinfected with chickens, and they can be disinfected with chickens only after 1 week of age. Generally, the spray volume is calculated at 30-50 ml per square meter. The spray volume for flat rearing can be less, and the spray volume for cage breeding should be more; the spray volume for chicks is less, and the spray volume for medium and large chickens is more.In addition, the following issues should be noted. First, disinfection of chickens should be stopped within 3 days before and after the live vaccine immunization, so as not to affect the immune effect. Second, the spray disinfection time is best to be fixed, and it should be carried out under low light conditions to prevent stress. Third, ventilation should be strengthened after disinfection to facilitate the drying of the chicken body and the chicken house. Fourth, according to the characteristics, ingredients, principles, and disinfection effects of different disinfectants, they should be used alternately to prevent the development of drug resistance.
