1. Brooding equipment
The brooding period of brooding cages is a key period of chicken life. At this stage, the chicks have higher environmental requirements, especially the temperature requirements are very strict, otherwise it is easy to cause high mortality. At present, four layers of cage brooding techniques are widely used at home and abroad, and the stratified brooding cages used are electrically heated and not heated. When brooding cages are used, the stocking density is generally 34 medium/m2 for medium-sized laying hens and 36/m2 for light-colored laying hens.
The cage is the main poultry farming equipment for modern chicken raising, and different cage equipment is suitable for different chicken groups.
The chicken cage equipment can be divided into a full-step type, a half-step type, a stacked type, a composite type and a flat type according to a combination form;
According to the geometric size can be divided into deep cages and shallow cages;
According to the type of chicken, it is divided into layer cages, broiler cages and breeder cages;
According to the weight of chicken, it is divided into light layer cage, medium layer battery cage and broiler cage.
3. Drinking water equipment
Drinking water equipment is divided into the following five types: nipple type, hanging tower type, vacuum type, cup type and sink type.
The beginning of the chicks and the free-range chickens are mostly vacuum, hanging tower and sink type. The free-range chickens now tend to use nipple drinkers.
4. Feeding equipment
In the feeding management of chickens, the amount of labor consumed by the feeding is large, so the large mechanized chicken farm uses a mechanical feeding system to improve labor efficiency.
The feeding system consists of four parts: the storage tower, the feeder, the feeder and the feeding trough.
5. Environmental control equipment
Lighting equipment Lighting equipment is mainly chicken house lighting and lighting automatic controller. Lighting fixtures mainly include incandescent lamps, fluorescent lamps, ultraviolet lamps, energy-saving lamps and portable spotlights, which can be selected as needed.
Wet pad fan cooling system The main function of the wet pad fan cooling system is that the summer air enters the house through the wet pad, which can reduce the temperature of the air entering the house and its cooling effect.
