"Since I moved 10,000 chickens from deep litter to the battery cage systems, their egg production has doubled". Using automatic poultry farming equipment is much easier than regular farming. Egg collection, feeding, watering, everything just got a whole lot easier.
Without coops, chickens suffer from diarrhea and shed feathers on the dusty floor. This will make them less productive. And hair loss is the result of tiny mites hiding on dusty floors and feeding on chickens at night. As a result, chickens end up losing feathers from scratching. But that's not the worst part, the blood strain is expelled with the waste, which is called coccidiosis. This affects their rearing system and egg production will decrease.
If battery cage systems are used, then the battery chicken cage system is hygienic, comfortable and safe for the birds. It's also cheaper and more efficient. And with more space to raise chickens, they can also be well cared for. Chicken manure can be automatically discharged from the chicken house, automatic feeding, automatic drinking water, and automatic chicken house environmental control can be realized. In this way, their feeding system is more complete, and egg production will increase.
Chickens are raised in poultry chicken cages with a maximum footprint of 450 to 525 square centimeters. This is four times more than normal poultry farming.
Let's think about what happens if you don't use any cages? Your chicken will be dirtier. Eggs will be dirtier, manure will produce ammonia, and your chickens will get sick. Now consider using a low-quality chicken cage, which is not much different from not using it at all.
Using a high-quality tier chicken cage will reduce labor costs because it requires less maintenance. And there will be no feed loss. In addition, with regard to manure storage systems, poor quality caged manure can become damp and produce a lot of ammonia gas, as well as small mites, causing flocks to lose hair and get sick. Unhealthy chicken can take a toll on your business. Unhealthy chickens will gradually lose their ability to produce, which will lead to even greater losses.
Cages can also reduce cannibalism and increase productivity. The casing system also reduces your housing space and will help you keep more chickens in a smaller space. Therefore, using a qualified cage should be your best bet to make your business more profitable. And a low-quality cage is just as bad as no cage at all.
