Underweight is an important factor in the death of chicks. The factors that cause the chicks to fail to meet the standard are: the nutritional level of the feed is a key factor in determining the weight of the chicks. Too low feed levels can lead to malnutrition in chicks, and growth and metabolism are severely hindered. , resulting in weight failure. The temperature of the brooding environment has a great influence on the food intake of the chicks. When the temperature is too high or too low, it will affect the food intake of the chicks, and it will be accompanied by the disease. Therefore, it is necessary to choose the appropriate temperature to ensure the chicks. The amount of food intake can reach the standard. Battery layer cages.
Light also has a great impact on the food intake of the chicks. The chicks are in a dark place, and the food intake will be significantly reduced, resulting in substandard weight. The density of the flocks is too large, causing some of the more competitive chickens to eat and the less competitive chickens to eat enough when the feed is placed. The impact of the disease, if the chick is sick, can not be detected in time will affect other chicks, the impact of the disease will cause the chicks to eat less, the weight is not up to standard.
