Recommendations for raising chickens in broiler breeding equipment

Nowadays, there are more and more users who use all kinds of automatic poultry farming equipment to breed broilers, and broilers are released quickly. Farmers can obtain economic benefits in about 50 to 60 days, but it is precisely because of the benefits obtained by breeding broilers There will be some problems in management, these problems may affect the meat production rate and health of broilers Breeding equipment

 

 

1. No sterilization before raising chickens: No matter in new or old chicken houses, farmers must thoroughly disinfect the chicken houses before entering the chicks to avoid the presence of bacterial pathogenic microorganisms, but most chicken farmers are Insufficient preparation leads to incomplete disinfection, and chickens are susceptible to diseases, so farmers must thoroughly disinfect before entering the chick, all equipment and tools must be disinfected

 


2. Don't pay attention to the choice of chicks: the source of chicks in some farmers is not clear enough, which leads to unclear chick health. When choosing chicks, farmers must buy them from breeding farms with production licenses and reliable quality.

 


3. Unreasonable drinking and feeding of chickens: The feeding and drinking of chicks is very important. Drinking too late will lead to dehydration and death of the chicks. Too late to eat will cause some chicks to eat other foreign bodies. Farmers should After receiving the chicks in the cage, let them rest for 30 minutes in the transport box, and then release the free drinking water for 2-3 hours (24-36 hours after the chicks are out of the shell to drink), and then sprinkle the ingredients on the serving tray. Free to eat. Anti-epidemic drugs can be added to drinking water.

 


4. The temperature of the brooder house is improperly controlled. The chicks need to have a relatively high temperature just after birth to ensure healthy growth. The farmer should control the temperature at 33-35℃ during the first week of entering the chicks. Because the survival rate of chicks is directly affected by temperature, too low temperature will cause the temperature of the chicken body to drop, and the resistance will be weak, thus causing various diseases. Too high temperature will cause thermal effects and heat stroke.

 


5. Low awareness of sanitation and epidemic prevention: The environmental sanitation of the battery cage for chickens is the key to ensuring the healthy growth of the chicken flock. Therefore, the hygienic management of the chicken house is very important.  recommends that farmers should have special shoes and clothes when entering and leaving. Don't keep people in and out of the house at random. If sick chickens appear, be conscious of rapid isolation and disinfection. In terms of disinfection, farmers must have the concept of regular disinfection.

The main points of using chicken equipment to prevent chicken diseases

The use of various types of chicken farming equipment to assist in raising chickens is the current breeding method for most large-scale chicken farms. When raising chickens with chicken equipment, labor intensity and labor costs are greatly reduced, and the environment of the chicken house can be better controlled, and the work of raising chickens is more efficient. Although chicken raising equipment is more efficient, the control of chicken disease prevention is still a key point that farmers cannot ignore. The author will introduce the main points of chicken disease prevention to farmers.

1. Feeding fresh feed: Many farmers will purchase a lot of feed for storage when they choose feed. In this way, if the storage is unreasonable, it is easy to cause the feed to mold and deteriorate, and the chickens will affect the health after eating. Therefore, when choosing feed, farmers should not purchase too much at a time. It is recommended to buy one week's amount. When storing, they should also be stored in a dry environment to avoid deterioration.

2. Dust removal: The chicken house will produce a lot of manure every day. If the farmer does not clean up in time, the ammonia in the chicken house will exceed the standard. Ammonia is a harmful gas that can seriously affect the health of the flock. The key is that conditional farmers can install a manure removal device to clean the manure, which saves time and effort, and has a good manure removal effect. It can clean the manure every day to avoid the generation of ammonia and clean the chicken house environment.

3. Control the temperature and ventilation: When ventilating and controlling the temperature of the chicken house, the farmer should follow the principle of "guarantee the temperature as much as possible under the premise of ensuring normal ventilation". In addition, there is humidity in the chicken house. It should be noted that there is a balance between temperature and humidity under high and low temperatures. When the temperature is high and the humidity is high, it is easy to form a sultry environment, which will have a significant adverse effect on the growth and health of the chicken.

4. Formulate reasonable disinfection procedures: because the chickens live in the house for a long time, feces, feed, dust, water and other contaminants will cause the house to breed a large number of pathogenic microorganisms, which will spread to the chickens and cause harm. The main method of killing these pathogenic microorganisms is disinfection, so formulating reasonable disinfection procedures is a key measure to reduce the occurrence of diseases. However, it is not enough to sterilize once. It is necessary for farmers to carry out regular disinfection, and to choose a good disinfection method and disinfection drugs.

5. Do a good job of immunization: Infectious diseases are a serious threat to the health of chickens. And once the chickens become ill, they may be transmitted to the flocks of the whole house, causing heavy losses. At present, the effective way to prevent infectious diseases is to immunize chickens. Therefore, in the process of raising chickens, farmers must do immunization work. According to the epidemic situation of the area and the actual situation of the chicken coop, formulate a reasonable immunization program and immunization method, which is also the key point of how to prevent disease in chickens.

6. Use of drugs to prevent diseases: Most infectious diseases are achieved by vaccine inoculation, while most bacterial diseases depend on the regular delivery of drugs to achieve prevention. Formulate different medication prevention procedures according to the conditions of different diseases.

The above six points are the main points that the author told the farmers to use chicken raising equipment in Uganda to prevent and control chicken diseases. I believe that as long as the farmers do the above six tasks, the prevalence of chickens will be greatly reduced or even avoided, thank you for your attention!

What kinds of minerals do chickens need when laying chickens in laying cages?

When laying chickens in laying hen cages, the mineral elements in the chicken body are about 4%, most of which are present in bones and teeth. The mineral content of eggs is 1.7%, and most of them are concentrated in eggshells. There are many types of mineral elements, but there are 14 main types commonly used in chicken production. Among them, 7 kinds of calcium, phosphorus, sulfur, magnesium, chlorine, potassium, and sodium are used as constant elements. Iron, copper, manganese, zinc, iodine, selenium, and diamond are used in small amounts and are called trace elements.

In the past, the breeding of chickens was mostly free-range. The outside soil is rich in mineral elements, and chickens can eat freely. At present, the chicken industry has gradually developed into large-scale intensive breeding. In the breeding process of laying chicken cages, it is often found that the deficiency occurs due to the lack of a certain substance, so more and more mineral elements are paid attention to and applied by people.

Among these elements, chickens need the most calcium and phosphorus. The main role of calcium and phosphorus is to form bones, teeth, and eggshells. Calcium is necessary for blood clotting and normal heart function with sodium and potassium. Chicks suffer from chondrosis when calcium is deficient; eggshells become thinner when the calcium is deficient, egg production decreases, and even shellless eggs appear. Phosphorus is involved in carbohydrate and fat metabolism and maintains the body's acid-base balance. When phosphorus is deficient, the chicken's appetite decreases, growth is slow, and in severe cases the joints are hardened and the bones are brittle. Sodium can keep the digestive juice of the chicken alkaline, and help digestive enzymes. The vertical effect is to maintain the acidity of gastric juice. When salt is lacking, chickens will have anal pecking, blood feeding and other ills. The body weight and egg weight of laying hens are reduced, and the egg production rate is reduced. Manganese is related to the growth of bones and the reproduction of chickens. When manganese is insufficient, the bones of chicks are dysplasia, prone to flexion leg disease, and growth is hindered; the lack of manganese in adult chickens results in low egg production and hatchability and thin egg shells. The content of zinc in chicken is very small, but it is widely distributed. Bone, hair, liver, pancreas, kidney, muscle and enzymes all contain zinc.

Chickens grow slowly when they are deficient in zinc, and have poorly developed feathers and skin. In severe cases, their feet are short, and the surface is scaly and dermatitis. Iron is present in hemoglobin and certain oxidases in tissue cells. When iron is insufficient, anemia is prone to occur. Copper and iron are involved in the formation of hemoglobin. When the feed is deficient in copper, iron is poorly absorbed and anemia also occurs. Iodine is related to thyroid function activity, when iodine deficiency can cause goiter. Selenium can treat chicken exudative quality disease, pancreatic degeneration and muscular stomach and myocardial dystrophy in turkey. The United States and Canada generally recommend adding selenium to chick diets.

In addition to the above several elements, laying hen cage manufacturers believe that the remaining constant and trace elements are not easy to be lacked in chicken diets.

What kind of feed is best for laying chickens in layer cages?

For users who use laying hen cages to raise chickens, laying hens can have high yields. In addition to selecting cages and environmental management, feed management is also very important. The healthy and normal growth of laying hens is inseparable from balanced feed nutrients, so for high-yield and healthy laying hens, farmers must feed balanced nutrients. So what kind of feed is best for laying chickens in chicken battery cages?

1. Carbohydrate feed: This kind of feed ingredient is the main ingredient in chicken feed, accounting for about 50%-80% of the total feed. Carbohydrate-containing substances include rice, broken rice, corn, tares, wheat, rice bran, bran, etc.

2. Protein feed: The feed contains protein components, which are important substances for the cells of the chicken flock and the material basis for all life activities of the chicken flock. There are many kinds of substances containing protein components, among which animal feeds include fish meal, silkworm pupa, blood meal, earthworm and so on. The protein content of this ingredient is relatively rich, so farmers can properly mix in the feed, which can promote the development of embryos, the growth of chicks and the formation of eggs. Vegetable protein feeds include beans and oil cakes. This type of feed has a wide range of sources, low cost, and complete nutrition.

3. Vitamin feed: The feed contains vitamins and is a necessary feed ingredient for the growth, reproduction and production of laying hens and for maintaining life activities. And such nutrients can only be obtained from feed, so it is an important feed ingredient. Vitamin-rich substances include clover. Vegetables include all kinds of vegetables and foot leaves of vegetable farms; melons and leaves. This kind of feed is rich in vitamins. As long as the supply can be guaranteed, it can not only promote the growth and development of chickens, ensure the health of chickens, increase the production of meat and eggs, but also increase the utilization rate of the department for better economic results.

4. Mineral feed: There are many types of minerals. Minerals play an important role in the growth and health of chickens. Substances containing mineral ingredients include eggshell powder, shell powder, stone powder, bone powder, and salt. It can be blended into the mix, or placed in a chicken house, allowing the chickens to self-feed.

5. Feed additives: it is to mix the trace elements, vitamins, antioxidants, chemical drugs, etc. necessary for chickens in an appropriate ratio and add them to the mixed feed. In order to reduce the diseases caused by the deficiency of certain vitamins and trace elements, promote the growth and development of chicks and the production capacity of adult chickens.

The above is the specific points that the author tells for the farmers, what feed is good for laying chickens in the cage. In addition, farmers are reminded that although feed additives have a relatively large role, they cannot be abused and used for many purposes. At the same time, it must be stirred evenly in the feed, and the use period should not exceed 1 week. Antibiotic and anthelmintic drugs must be replaced in a planned manner. Do not always use the same drugs to prevent and treat a disease, so as to prevent drug resistance, but it will not prevent diseases.

What issues should be paid attention to when raising chickens in summer?

Summer is a season with high temperature, most of the pathogens are killed, and the epidemic situation of the flocks is much less. However, due to the high temperature and high accidents of chickens in summer, the farmers must pay attention to prevention during daily feeding management. Let's take a look at the precautions for the summer chicken farm. The authors will tell you about the advantages and precautions of using chicken battery cages keep chickens:

1. Chicken cages are used in multi-layer cages, so it is necessary to breed three or four times more chickens than the flats, so that the farmers can increase the benefits from the quantity, and the chickens grow and produce in the cages. It is convenient for farmers to manage the flocks, and the sanitary environment of the house can be better maintained.

2. In chicken cages, chickens are not directly exposed to feces, so cages can greatly reduce the disease caused by fecal infections, reduce the incidence of disease, and facilitate the handling of feces.

3. The use of poultry chicken battery cages to raise chickens allows the chickens to eat enough and the location of the water to ensure that each chicken can get reasonable drinking and feeding, so that the uniformity of the flock is very good.

4. Reducing the labor intensity of the farmers, if the use of flat raising is not only the number of raising, but also the management of the farmer alone, although the number of cages is increased, the cages are not hindered by the cages and the farmers are more likely to be managed. Although the labor intensity is increased, it is reduced.

 

 

Should to pay attention:

1. Pay attention to the temperature of the house
 
Chickens are resistant to freezing and heat and are very sensitive to high temperatures. If the temperature in the house continues to rise above 32 °C, the flock will have a heat stress reaction, open mouth breathing, half open wings, loss of appetite, or fall in the chicken cage, not willing to move. If the temperature of the house is above 35 °C, the chicken will have a fainting reaction and even cause a large area of chicken death.

Therefore, in the usual inspection of chicken farms, if large groups of chickens are found to breathe and drink more, especially physical fitness and obesity are more obvious. At this time, we must quickly think of ways to cool the chicken house, you can sprinkle water in the chicken house, it is best to spray down, or open the fan. For mentally degraded or fainting chickens, quickly transfer to a cool place, you can put blood on the cockscomb or wings, and add multi-dimensional in the chicken drinking water to speed up the recovery of the flock.

2. Pay attention to the chicken line problem

In the summer, in order to cool the house, high-power appliances such as fans are used. With more electricity, the load pressure on the line is large. Because of the excessive load on the line or the aging of the line, the fires that cause the farm to suffer a devastating blow are everywhere. Our farmers have to pay special attention. In the summer, you must use electricity safely, check the circuit in time, replace the aging wires, and prohibit the burning of flammable and explosive materials in the chicken house.

 


3. Pay attention to the number of dead chickens

It is normal for chickens, large or small, to die every day in large-scale chicken farms (mostly uncontrollable deaths of weak chickens). If you find that the number of dead chickens suddenly increases for several days, you should pay attention. It is recommended to collect the dead chickens, and to dissect more than one, to find out the reasons, and to take measures to prevent greater casualties.


The summer weather is hot, and the egg production rate will drop, especially after entering the sky, so the farmers need to manage the egg production rate in the summer. Strengthen the ventilation and ventilation of the layer chicken battery cages. In the summer, the ventilation can not only cool down, but also ensure the air is fresh. Evaporative cooling methods such as wet curtains, sprays, and roof sprays can be used. Evaporative cooling is a better cooling method at present, but it should be noted that when using a wet curtain to cool down, there should be an openable air inlet near the wet curtain. When the humidity exceeds 70%, the wet curtain should be closed and opened. Ventilation at the air inlet.

Reasons for the decline in chicken feed intake on the farm

When chickens are raised in summer, the feed intake of chickens will decrease due to the high temperature. In fact, the decline of feed intake in hot summer chickens is more common, especially in the late stage of broiler breeding. So what are the reasons in battery cage system for layers price in india?

 


In the hot weather of summer, bacteria are prone to breed and cause disease in chickens. Many chicken diseases can cause the loss of appetite of chickens, resulting in a decline in feed intake. This will not only occur in summer, but will occur throughout the year. In addition, the chickens drink plenty of water in the summer, and the intestines are prone to problems. If ventilation and cooling are not well controlled, heat stress or cold may cause some chicken diseases, resulting in chicken appetite loss. Chicken farmers can combine other symptoms to diagnose chicken disease and treat it symptomatically, so as to solve the problem of reduced feed intake of chicken flocks.

 

 

The most important thing to raise chickens in summer is to prevent heatstroke and cool down. Although there are various ventilation facilities and water curtains, it is still difficult to achieve the ideal temperature for all chickens in the house. If the temperature is not controlled well, the flock will have mild or severe heat stress. Once the heat stress, the flock will like to drink water, eat less, and the feed intake will naturally decrease. Therefore, strengthening the exhaust air, increasing the wind speed, and using more water curtains to ensure that the chickens are not exposed to the cold, to maximize the control of heat stress, are the key links to avoid the chickens' appetite in the summer.

 

 

 

 


Nowadays, if chickens are raised, the living environment of the chickens is relatively poor, the living space is small, and the density of the chickens is high. This makes it easier for the chickens to dissipate heat in summer. Therefore, it is necessary to reduce the feeding density properly in summer. In addition, reasonable nutritional matching, suitable feed ratio and mouthfeel, and the addition of some additives or traditional Chinese medicine preparations to regulate intestinal tract, improve immunity, prevent heatstroke and lower temperature, can help reduce the loss of appetite in chickens.

 


Diseases in the intestines of chickens can cause discomfort in the chicken and cause shavings. Chicken shavings caused by coccidiosis are common. After coccidiosis occurs in the chicken, the intestinal mucosa swells and the chicken will feel pain. At this time, the chicken will refuse to eat large particles of food to reduce its own pain. At the same time, when coccidiosis occurs in chickens, the chickens will show irritability, and high-density feeding during the brooding period will be accompanied by mutual pecking in chicken poultry farming equipment.

Automatic feeding machine for animal husbandry chicken equipment

Poultry chicken farming equipment-automatic feeder is a mode of breeding chickens in cages, and a highly automated feeding equipment necessary for large-scale farms. The biggest feature of the feeder is that the feeding is uniform, saving time and effort. The feeder can feed three to five layers of chicken battery cages, which is convenient for cage raising and solves the problem of difficult feeding for farmers. The author will talk about some issues when using automatic feeders.

The automatic feeder has a traveling feeder mainly composed of driving components, that is, traction members, bins, and blanking tubes. The traction structure of the automatic feeder is characterized by the traction driving component installed at one end of the traveling track. The motor reducer will drive the material box along the track through the driving wheels and wire ropes to complete the feeding operation.

The traction drive unit is installed with the top bin, so that the bin is directly driven along the track by a sprocket. The automatic feeder can also complete the feeding operation. The installation condition of the chicken farm is that the distance from the pen to the house is more than 65 cm, and the space at both ends of the house must be above 2.2 meters. If the chicken farm wants to use fully automatic poultry breeding equipment, farmers need to ensure that the floor of the house is level and free of obstacles.

Read the instructions carefully before using the fully automatic feeder. To check the specifications of the chicken cage, understand the basic structure of the feeding cart and the operation of the buttons. The automatic feeding machine for the chicken farm can arrange the track in the middle of the sidewalk in the chicken house according to the required level, so that the positions of the sides of the feeding truck and the food trough can be guaranteed equal distances.

The feeding trough of the automatic feeder should be basically arranged to prevent the feeding effect from being affected when the feeding truck is feeding. When the power switch is set to open, the left and right augers are lifted at the same time, so that the discharge opening can be placed in the tank and the discharge opening is not long enough to be replaced. After the feeder places the feed in the silo, activate the left and right flour buttons and adjust the outlet button. This can make the discharge of the six outlets basically the same.

Turn off the left and right chicken buttons after adjusting. After turning down the governor switch of the feeding car, turn on the forward switch of the feeding car. You can adjust the speed switch box of the feeding car to the required operating speed, turn off the forward switch of the feeding car at the same time, and fix the speed regulating position, and turn off the power switch before feeding.

Importance of disinfection of chicken farming equipment

The use of poultry breeding equipment to raise chickens means that many chickens are placed in the same coop and in the same cage for breeding. In this process, a large amount of harmful gases and substances will be generated. The author recommends that farmers should carry out reasonable cleaning in this case. Regular disinfection of henhouses, chicken layer cages in Ghana, and additional equipment can effectively help remove harmful substances from the henhouse and prevent disease. So what should we do?

Use of any piece of chicken equipment should be disinfected regularly, especially cages. Disinfection is a very necessary job, because chicken cages are very prone to germs, so regular spray disinfection with chickens is an important means of preventing and controlling infectious diseases. To sterilize chickens, choose an odorless, less irritating disinfectant, and several ingredients should be used alternately.

In general, once a week in the cold season is appropriate, twice a week in warm and moderate, hot weather can be day by day. Because of the hot season, the air is humid and the temperature is high. During disinfection, disinfection water should be used after pre-warming the house. The disinfection effect is best when the room temperature is about 25 degrees. The purpose of disinfection is mainly to kill bacteria and viruses in the air, so the spray droplets should be as fine as possible. Do not understand that spraying on chickens is disinfection.

Disinfection is not only good for sterilization and prevention of diseases, but also has the effect of purifying the dust particles in the air, so for this purpose only, you must also disinfect. This work is important and cannot be ignored. Chicken flocks will inevitably continue to have some fragile chickens. These individuals are the target of bacteria and viruses. Eventually, they will become the source of disease infection. Picking them out in time will greatly reduce the chance of large groups of diseases.

Secondly, the staff of chicken farms are important carriers of pathogens. Therefore, those who enter the production area must be strictly disinfected. The staff of each henhouse in the farm are strictly prohibited from stringing henhouses to prevent pathogens from carrying infection between the houses. When necessary, the overalls, caps, shoes, etc. worn by personnel should be left in the original hen house, and replaced at the designated hen house. Work clothes and caps should be cleaned and disinfected. Work clothes and caps should be cleaned and replaced regularly.

In the end, the author reminds the farmers again that in the work of using poultry breeding equipment in Ghana to raise chickens, we must take the flocking and disinfection seriously and must not be careless. If necessary, you can consult the veterinarian to solve the problem. Only in this way can you effectively protect the economic benefits of the farmers. Thank you for your attention.

How does a novice farmer test the quality of a chicken cage?

With the development of the breeding industry, more and more farmers have begun to develop poultry breeding business. However, for new farmers, the chicken cage is a very unfamiliar device. I don't know how to distinguish between good and bad. Next, the author tells the farmers how to check the quality of chicken cages. [The detection method for broiler cages and battery laying hen cages is the same]

1. Solder joint tensile test: Farmers can randomly take a few points from the manufacturer ’s cage pieces and use the equipment to test the tensile strength to see how the manufacturer ’s cage equipment pulls. The growth and comfort of the flocks in the cages should be paid special attention by farmers.

2. The second method is that the farmers can extend the wire around the chicken cage nets to test. In the semi-finished chicken cages of the manufacturer, randomly select 3 nets, and then measure the protrusion value around the nets with a ruler.

3. Determination of the thickness of the galvanized layer of the chicken battery cage: When the farmers choose the equipment for the chicken cage, the galvanizing process must be done by each manufacturer to produce the chicken cage. In order to strengthen the corrosion-resistant and wear-resistant methods of chicken cage equipment, the thickness of the galvanized layer is more important. Farmers can randomly select and produce 3 bottom nets and 3 pairs of cages in the cage equipment of the poultry farming equipment manufacturer. Each piece can measure 3-5 points, and the lower point test data shall prevail.

4. Determination of the amount of deformation resistance: Because there are many chickens in each group of chicken cage farmers, the deformation capacity of the chicken cage equipment is related to the service life of the chicken cage equipment. Farmers can install several groups of cages. Adjust to a better state, and then measure each group of chicken cages three times. During each measurement, a heavy object (such as a brick) should be evenly placed on the bottom net instead of the weight of the chicken. The deformation amount is measured every five days, and a total of 3 measurements are performed. After 15 days, the load is removed to measure the deformation amount of the bottom mesh.

Measures to deal with chicken stress response in farms

Many farmers have chicken battery cages cost when they raise chickens, and chicken stress reactions also occur when raising chickens. So how do you deal with chicken stress responses in chicken houses?

 

 

 


1. Farmers should start from the growth characteristics of laying hens, provide them with a good, quiet and comfortable growing environment, temperature and humidity control, and ventilation management must be scientific and reasonable to avoid the hen house caused by poor ventilation. Humidity and air pollution, to avoid the stress of bad environment.

2. Farmers should ensure the stability of feeding throughout the breeding process, such as laying hens drinking water, feeding, disinfection and other environments, must be in order, time is regular, farmers should also pay attention not to cut off water, lack of feed .

3. In the breeding process, farmers should control the environment of the chicken house, such as fixed switch light time, cool down in summer and keep warm in winter to prevent the adverse effects of high and low temperature on laying hens. Prevention and control measures should be taken in time in the autumn where the temperature changes greatly, and in rainy seasons, it is necessary to do a good job of preventing storms.

4. In the breeding farm for laying hens, farmers should be careful not to yell or shout, and be careful not to build the hen house in a noisy place.

5. Laying hens need different feed ingredients at different growth stages, so farmers need to change feeds at a certain stage, and there must be a transition stage in the process of changing feeds, so as to ensure the smooth adaptation of broilers in battery cage system for broiler price in india.

Three notes for the construction of broiler breeding equipment

Three notes on the construction of broiler breeding equipment. Everyone is no stranger to using broiler battery cages to raise chickens. Adopting broiler cages first requires the establishment of a scientific and reasonable chicken farm, so what issues need attention? How to build a perfect chicken farm? The following author combines the suggestions of poultry breeding equipment suppliers to give you professional guidance.

1. Heating equipment. As long as the purpose of heating and insulation can be achieved, electric heating, water heating, coal stoves, and even fire pits, floor rafters and other heating methods can be selected, but it should be noted that coal stoves are dirty and prone to gas poisoning, so chimneys must be added. When designing a house, pay attention to heat insulation.

2. Feeding equipment. Food troughs are mainly used. Long cages are used for caged chickens. This feeding method can also be used for flat rearing, and bucket feeding can also be used. The shape of the trough has a great influence on the feeding of chickens. The trough is too shallow and there is no edge protection, which will cause more feed waste. The use of cage brooding can use stencils or three-dimensional multilayer brooders. In addition to flat-line breeding of reared chickens, overlapping or step-type rearing cages are often used. Farmers often adopt 60-70-day-old direct transfer to laying hen cages. Laying hens are basically caged. At present, there are many suppliers of breeding equipment for producing cages. Farmers can purchase equipment according to the situation. Then there is equipment for decontamination. Generally, regular decontamination is performed manually on a chicken farm, and mechanical decontamination can be used on a larger scale.

3. Ventilation equipment. The closed chicken house must be mechanically ventilated. According to the direction of airflow in the house, it can be divided into two types: horizontal ventilation and vertical ventilation. Horizontal ventilation refers to the direction of airflow in the house perpendicular to the long axis of the house, and longitudinal ventilation refers to a ventilation method where a large number of fans are concentrated in one place so that the airflow in the house is parallel to the long axis of the house.

The above is the additional equipment for poultry breeding commonly used when raising broilers. With these additional poultry farm equipment, the chicken raising process can be more convenient.

How to manage layers in autumn and winter

1. It is not easy to raise laying hens in autumn and winter for Chicken Breeding Equipment, and winter management is a very complicated project. Low temperature has an impact on the production and growth of chickens. First, pay attention to the insulation of the chicken house and close the doors and windows; block the holes and holes to keep the chicken house at a relatively stable temperature. The optimal temperature for chicken laying is 18 ℃ ~ 23 ℃, and the minimum temperature is not lower than 5 ℃, which can basically maintain normal production.

 


2. Increase feed energy concentration. At low temperatures, the heat energy of the laying hens is large. To maintain production stability, the energy and protein content can be increased in the feed. When the house temperature is lower than 10 ° C, 10% to 20% of corn is added to the feed to lay eggs For flocks with a rate of 90% or more, 1% to 1.5% of fat can be added to the feed, and the feeding amount can be increased by 10 to 15 grams per bird.When the temperature is lowered by 3 ° C to 5 ° C, the feeding amount of each animal is increased by 3 to 5 grams to maintain the stability of laying eggs.

 


3. Keep the house air fresh and dry. Under the premise of stressing insulation, more attention should be paid to ventilation. From a nutritional point of view, the first is air, the second is water, and the third is feed. The caged chickens have a high density and a large amount of ventilation. If you do not pay attention to ventilation, it is easy to have problems. Chickens living in the air for a long time are prone to respiratory diseases, which induce Newcastle Disease and other viral diseases. Therefore, the skylight must be open, and the windows and doors must be opened regularly for 20 to 30 minutes for ventilation.

 

 

 

 


4. Clean up feces in time and reduce ammonia pollution. The harmful gases in the chicken house are mainly ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide. The most harmful is ammonia, which is produced by feces. The ammonia content is high, it strongly stimulates the chicken's respiratory tract mucosa and eye conjunctiva, and damages the chicken's first protective barrier, making it easy for various viruses and bacteria to invade. There is no exhaust facility, and chickens that do not pay attention to ventilation The house is the most, so you have to measure the ammonia concentration in the chicken house. When you enter the house, the ammonia smell is not dazzling or pungent, and its concentration is basically 10 ~ 15ppm, keeping it within 20ppm. Generally safer.

 


5. Regularly disinfect the chicken. Low temperature is a relatively active condition for various viruses, and it is also a season where various viral diseases are prone to occur. Therefore, take the chickens to disinfect once a week, add an appropriate proportion of Wanda high polyiodine with warm water, leave 1 meter above the flock, downward Spray, purify air, disinfect and sterilize in layer chicken cages price in nigeria.

 

6. Regularly test chickens for immune antibodies. The peak period of laying hens is generally after 22 weeks of age, so various immunizations must be completed before 20 weeks of age. Once the peak period of egg production is reached, try to avoid immunization and avoid stress. If there are changes in the detection antibodies, corresponding measures must be taken to start with improving the chicken's autoimmune ability.

 


7. Eliminate sick and weak chickens in time. If the chickens have weak chickens with chronic respiratory diseases and intestinal diseases, they must be disposed of in time. These chickens are often the fuse that endangers the health of the chickens.

Things to know during laying hen breeding equipment

Laying hen farm cage equipment needs to be aware of during use. Laying hen breeding equipment is more convenient for our farmers, but is it clear to everyone what needs to be understood during use? Below the author tells you about the relevant knowledge of using laying hen breeding equipment.

1. In order to ensure the service life of the equipment, users are required to regularly fill the transmission parts such as transmission sprocket and gears with lubricating oil once in use. Lubricate the transmission sprockets of the central egg collector, and lubricate the central manure transfer system and central egg transfer system.

2. Clean the surface of egg transfer roller and manure roller in time to prevent the accumulation of debris to swell the manure belt or break the roller shaft.

3. Clean up the impurities in the soft and broken egg collection tray in time.

Attention to the use of clearing equipment when raising chickens

Many large and medium-sized chicken farms have chosen to use chicken and manure equipment in the work of clearing the dung. There are two types of chicken-removing equipment, conveyor belt type manure machine and scraper type manure machine. The conveyor belt type septic machine is suitable for chicken houses using battery chicken cages, and the squeegee type septic machine is suitable for various chicken houses. When using two types of chicken-removing equipment, farmers should pay attention to some points to achieve better efficiency.

First, conveyor belt type manure cleaning machine:

1. Every time before use, farmers should pay attention to first check whether the various devices can operate normally, especially the tightness of the traction rope of the equipment. It should be tightened once a day for the first 7 days and once every 2 to 3 days.

2. The second point is that when the farmer starts the decontamination machine, the farmer must observe it at any time, pay attention to the travel switch, and if there is an abnormal situation, it should stop immediately.

3. Conveyor belt type decontamination machine uses the conveyor belt to clear the feces, so the farmers should regularly clear the feces every day to prevent the accumulation of excessive feces and damage to the conveyor belt.

4. Check the tightness of the traction rope before the scraping of the manure, whether the traction rope at the corner is derailed, and whether the guiding wheel of the scraping board is normal.

5. In the process of cleaning the manure, the scraping manure board is directly sent out of the house, so during the operation of the machine, the farmer should check it in time to see if it is scraped to the designated position.

6. After the decontamination machine has finished working and stops running, the farmer should check whether the fender board is back to normal.

Second, the scraper type cleaning machine:

1. When installing the scraper type septic machine, pay attention to the cement angle fixing device used by the main machine should be buried 50cm underground to prevent the pull out when the tension is too large.

2. The part of the corner of the scraper-type manure remover should not be too long. The outer cut line of the corner wheel should coincide with the center line of the manure. The outer cut line is placed in the center line of the manure, which can prevent the dung board from deviating during the process of clearing the dung.

3. Farmers should pay attention to the working position of the cycloidal pinwheel reducer, which is generally horizontal. The maximum horizontal inclination angle during installation is generally less than 15°, so if it exceeds 15°, other measures should be taken to ensure adequate lubrication and prevent oil leakage.

4. Farmers should pay special attention to the fact that the reducer of the scraper type septic machine is generally free of lubricating oil when it leaves the factory. Therefore, the farmer should add lubricating oil to the reducer before use. When refueling, the vent cap on the upper part of the seat can be screwed to refuel. When draining oil, screw the oil drain plug on the lower part of the base to release the oil.

The above is the author's note, the use of two different types of cleaning equipment in the use of chicken cages, I hope that the above description can help farmers, thank you for your attention!
