Chicken Farming Information for Chicken Breeds

Farmers who raise layer hens in poultry chicken cages all want to allow chickens to lay more eggs, but some of them have low egg production rates due to some reasons. Today we will discuss the reasons.

First of all, there are two reasons for the lack of egg production rate: feed and management. Farmers need to check whether the feed formula is nutritionally balanced, and check whether the temperature and humidity of the poultry house are in line with the growth conditions of laying hens.

Farmers also need to reflect on the rapid change of feed after the peak egg production period. This will cause the chicken to have a greater stress response and affect the chicken's feed intake. As a result, the nutrients obtained by the chickens are reduced and the egg production rate is reduced.

The other reason is that the noisy environment of the chicken house causes the flock to be agitated. For example, loud noises can easily frighten chickens. Or suddenly change the breeding environment, etc. In response to the above problems, farmers should strengthen the management of the chicken house breeding environment and solve the problems in time.

Farmers need to consider whether the chicken house has sufficient light. Because light has a greater impact on stimulating the physiological functions of the gonads and laying eggs. Some chicken farmers only use natural light instead of lighting, so that the light is below 16 hours. Some have supplemented the light, but the light bulb is too small or the degree is too small. Although there are 15W light bulbs, they are not cleaned in time and are covered by dust, etc. And the light is not enough, which adversely affects the egg production rate.

The above is the summary of the reasons why laying hens lay fewer eggs. I hope that all farmers who raise layer hens can use the battery cages for layer hens to summarize the above experience to better raise chickens.

In winter, automatic chicken cages are prone to damp conditions. Excessive humidity in the chicken house will cause the feces to decompose more harmful gases. Then it causes respiratory diseases in the flocks, which endangers the health of the chickens. Therefore, it is very necessary to protect the chicken coop from moisture in winter.

Pay attention to ventilation of the chicken house. In order to ensure the temperature of the chicken house, some farmers do not ventilate the chicken house. This is undesirable. Failure to ventilate the air will result in reduced oxygen in the chicken house, which is not conducive to chicken growth. The contradiction between farmers and the need to adjust ventilation and heat preservation.

Don't increase the stocking density excessively. In winter, the temperature is low, and most farmers will increase the stocking density to keep the chickens warm. This has disadvantages, because too high a stocking density will cause crowded chickens, which is even more detrimental to preventing moisture.

Pay attention to prevent water leakage from drinking utensils. Strictly prevent leakage of drinking utensils. Once found, seal treatment or replacement should be done in time, and the leak should be cleaned up in time.

Ensure the temperature of the chicken house. In winter, the main job of the chicken coop is to keep warm. According to the survey, the temperature of the chicken house should not be lower than 12 degrees Celsius. This is the most suitable temperature for the chicken house in winter. If the humidity is too high, you can install heating equipment in the chicken coop or use modern chicken breeding equipment.

The above is an introduction to avoid the wet methods of the chicken house in winter. I hope them can help you. If you want to know more related knowledge, please pay attention to us.

 

Many farmers are purchasing broiler cages. Pay attention to some purchase matters.

 

First of all, we must know the distance between the iron bars of the broiler cage. This is very important for broiler cages. A reasonable spacing is 2.5cm*5cm. Some farmers may think that the size of the broiler chickens is relatively large, and the spacing can be increased. This idea is wrong. Conditional farmers can also lay a plastic net on the bottom of the broiler cage that is consistent with the cage eye. This can not only buffer the strength of the eggs hitting the net and reduce the rate of broken eggs, but also prevent some diseases.

 

The design angle of the bottom of the broiler cage. The angle of the broiler cage must be accurate. The egg cannot be rolled out in time at a small angle, and it is trampled by the chicken. A large angle may cause the egg to break, and the general angle is maintained at seven to eight degrees.

 

 

 

 

Pay attention to the connection between the broiler cage and the bottom of the cage net. I must remind you that there are farmers, and you can't leave a big gap here. Because there are more eggs here. You must pay attention to this detail when buying a broiler cage.

 

The choice of materials for the chicken cage is very particular. It is necessary to choose suitable and tough materials. The diameter of the iron wire at the bottom of the cage is about 2 mm. The egg breaking rate is very small. The larger the diameter of the iron wire, the easier it is to cause broken eggs.

 

Due to the high density of broiler cages, it is not conducive to observe the situation in the flock. Especially in the brooding period, it is more obvious, so it is necessary to carefully observe the cage around the cage carefully. Prevent the abnormal situation in the flock from being discovered and dealt with in time. When the chicks are just transferred to the rearing cage. Due to the new environment, the chickens will be temporarily uneasy. The chickens that ran out of the cage should be caught in the cage in time, and the chickens should be carefully checked for damage and whether all the chickens can drink water in time.

 

In addition, in daily management, we should carefully observe the chickens every time, and be well aware of the chickens’ feeding, drinking, feces, mental state, etc., timely prevent diseases, strengthen management, and reduce economic losses.These are the precautions for purchasing broiler cages in Nigeria

Summer is a season of sudden rains. Recently, some countries have been affected by typhoons and rains. These severe weather will cause some farms in many places to be flooded or even washed down, causing huge economic losses. So, what should farmers do after heavy rains and floods? Can the loss be minimized?

First of all, after the rainstorm, the chickens that died of illness and drowning were treated harmlessly. The reason is that most chickens are now kept in chicken battery cages, and the dead chickens carry a large number of pathogenic bacteria, which can easily be transmitted to other chickens and cause disease infection, causing greater losses to the chicken farm.

Do a good job of disinfection. Different disinfection treatment methods can be selected, such as physical disinfection and biological disinfection methods such as cleaning, scouring, scrubbing, sun exposure, incineration, accumulation and fermentation, and chemical disinfection. You can choose 10%-20% lime water, plant ash water, 2% caustic soda solution, 2%-5% peroxyacetic acid, compound phenol, and peroxacin for a full range of pig house disinfection treatment. In addition, clean up chicken manure in time, because chicken manure is easy to breed bacteria.

Make a surprise attack to prevent immunization. As the catastrophic floods can easily cause the epidemic of chicken diseases, common or rare diseases in previous years are likely to occur, so epidemic prevention measures need to be taken. It is best to choose appropriate immunization prevention based on the local epidemic situation of livestock and poultry diseases.

The above is what chicken farmers should do to chicken who lived in poultry battery cages after the flood. In the face of disasters, human beings are often small and helpless. Therefore, it is hoped that farmers can learn more protective measures to prevent problems before they occur.

What equipment will be needed when raising chicken? Believe that all farmer are in trouble to choosing chicken equipment at the beginning. Giving a simple introduce that list of equipment needed for poultry farming.

Chicken cage. Now poultry chicken cages are automatic and divided into stepped cage and battery cage. Stepped chicken cages are suitable for small farm, because it has low automation. Battery chicken cages are fit in larger farm, due to it need high automation.

Drinking water equipment. At present, there are nipple type, tower type, vacuum type, cup type and sink type drinkers. Free-range chickens now tend to use nipple drinkers, and chicks use tower type and sink type.

Manure removal equipment. At present, there are conveyor belt type manure cleaners and scraper type manure cleaners. Among them, conveyor belt type manure cleaners are mostly used for stacked cages, and scraper type manure cleaners are mostly used for stepped cages and online horizontal cages.

Environmental control equipment. Lighting equipment is mainly chicken house lighting fixtures. The main function of the wet curtain and fan cooling system is that summer air enters the chicken house through the wet curtain, which can reduce the temperature of the air entering the chicken house.

 The above is the list of equipment needed to raise chickens. This article briefly introduces a few. If you need to know about other equipment, you can contact the chicken cages supplier to learn more.

Using broiler battery cages to raising chicken is very convenient because it reduces the burden on most farmers, but it also places higher demands on farmers. Chicken living in cages also need to be managed. Some people will have some related problems. Today we will discuss the problems that should be paid attention to when raising broiler chicken with automatic breeding equipment.

  1. Matters needing attention in temperature

(1) Place the thermometer reasonably

In standardized chicken house breeding, the length and width of the chicken house are relatively large, and the temperature in the east, west, or north and south of the chicken house is inconsistent. Attention should be paid to the reasonable placement of thermometers. One thermometer should be placed in the east, middle, and west of the poultry chicken cages. Get the average temperature in the chicken house.

(2) Measures that change with the seasons

Need to cool down in summer. Breeders can use wet curtains and fans to reduce the temperature in the chicken house. At the same time, you should pay attention to the opening time of the wet curtain, to avoid the temperature in the chicken house is too low or the temperature in the chicken house is inconsistent, causing chickens to catch a cold.

 Temperature control in autumn. Because of the large temperature difference between day and night in autumn, the temperature in the chicken house should be adjusted to avoid the phenomenon of high and low temperature.

 In winter, heat preservation can be used to increase the temperature in the chicken house through heating or a blower.

  1. Pay attention to the problem of density

Pay attention to the density of broilers in cages. Actually, pay attention to the different feed intake of each cage chicken, adjust the number of chickens in each cage and achieve even feed intake.

  1. Matters needing attention in immunization

Raising broiler chicken in battery cages usually adopt drinking water immunization methods during immunization. When immunizing, attention should be paid to the vaccine dosage and drinking time. The drinking time should not be too long. Too long can easily reduce the efficiency of vaccine immunity.

Nowadays, automatic chicken raising equipment are emerging in endlessly. Many farmers will rely on some automatic chicken raising equipment to raise broilers to improve work efficiency and reduce labor intensity. Although chicken raising techniques and methods have improved, many farmers still cannot get good benefits. In order to help the majority of farmers improve their scientific management level and achieve better economic benefits, let’s discuss some things that need to be paid attention to when using automatic breeding equipment to raise chickens.

  • Choose the automatic chicken raising equipment that suits you: Among the modern chicken breeding equipment, the types of automatic chicken raising equipment include: automatic feeding machine, automatic manure cleaning machine, automatic egg picker, fan wet curtain, automatic drinking water equipment, etc. Commonly  automatic chicken raising equipment, farmers can choose the required automatic chicken raising equipment according to their actual needs and capital budget to assist in raising chickens, and improve the efficiency of chicken raising.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
  • Learn to operate modern automatic chicken farming equipment: it is a relatively large-scale mechanized equipment that requires operation and maintenance. Therefore, whether it is operated by the farmers themselves or by the staff, they must pay attention to learning the correct operation method. Different equipment operation methods are It is not the same. Only reasonable and scientific operation can ensure the good effect and efficiency of the equipment, and can guarantee the life of use, and also pay attention to regular maintenance and maintenance of the automatic chicken breeding equipment, so that the problem can be found in time Timely solution these problems can guarantee and extend the service life of the equipment.
  • Maintain the environment of the chicken house: the chicken coop is well maintained, and the chicken flock can reduce the occurrence of diseases. Because the chicken house has chicken flocks and some automatic chicken raising equipment, there will be a lot of manure, feed, dust, ammonia and other pollution. The existence of materials and harmful gases will seriously affect the health of the chicken flock. Therefore, if you want to ensure the sanitary environment of the chicken house, it is necessary to clean, disinfect and ventilate frequently. If you do these three points, you can maintain the hygiene of the chicken house.

The main points of how to raise chickens using chicken raising equipment are described for the majority of farmers. It is also a few tasks that farmers need to pay attention to in the process of raising chickens. I hope that the above description can help the majority of farmers to raise chickens in a scientific and reasonable manner. Improve economic efficiency!

 

In recent years, the aquaculture industry in various countries has advanced by leaps and bounds, and more and more people choose the aquaculture industry. The emergence of chicken raising equipment has undoubtedly given the breeders a new direction, making the process of raising poultry more and more easier for the breeders. If breeders want to get good economic benefits, the use of automated poultry breeding equipment is indispensable. Next, introduce the development trend of the chicken industry to the farmers.

 

1. Environmental maintenance of chickens is a trend: environmental protection is being promoted in all occupations, and there is no exception in the chicken industry. Nowadays, many pig farms and the chicken industry are rectifying their own environment, saving energy and reducing emissions, and reducing environmental pollution related to chicken breeding is the current development trend of the chicken industry. In the past, the manure and water flowed everywhere in the chicken farms, flies were flying everywhere, and the smell around the chicken farms was unpleasant. If it is not rectified, it will inevitably affect the external air environment and affect people's healthy life. Therefore, the maintenance of chickens is a must.

 

2. Specialized management is the trend: As the scale of the chicken industry becomes more and more advanced, after the professionalization of breeding equipment, poultry management and skills must be continuously updated and upgraded. Only professional people do professional things, poultry breeding business will be successful. However, there is no single breeder who can not only raise chickens and understand water and electricity, but also manage people and see a doctor. Therefore, it is the trend of cooperation and mutual benefit to give each job to professional people.

 

3. Large-scale and intensive breeding is the trend: large-scale and intensive chicken breeding are now vigorously promoted by the chicken industry. Many farmers have now completed large-scale chicken breeding. There are some small farms whose breeding equipment and chicken-raising skills have begun to lag behind, and are now unable to adapt to the development of the chicken-raising industry, and the benefits are minimal or even at a loss. Therefore, small breeders must change the current breeding situation before they can win in the chicken industry.

 

4. Green drug-free residual chicken is imperative: With the continuous improvement of people's living standards, there are higher requirements for food. More and more people pay attention to food safety, so how to produce green and safe chicken products is a job that farmers need to consider, and it is related to the economic benefits of the farmers and people's health.

 

The above are some development directions that farmers need to consider in addition to updating breeding equipment. In the past two years of repeated epidemics, automated poultry breeding equipment has become the best choice for many farmers. It is hoped that all farmers can adapt to the current complex international environment and grasp the international market in the new year.

Many broiler farm cage manufacturers believe that the main task in the rearing period is to cultivate healthy, well-balanced chickens with a body weight that conforms to the normal growth curve to ensure timely production. Therefore, in production, we must pay full attention to the dietary coordination of growing chickens. The content of crude protein in the diet should be appropriately reduced, which can be gradually reduced from 18% to 19% during the brooding period to 16% to 15%.

 

At the same time, reduce the energy concentration in the diet. When compounding diets, low-energy feeds such as rice bran and wheat bran can be used to replace part of high-energy feeds such as corn to help exercise the stomach and intestines, improve the digestion of the feed, and make the growing chickens have a good body condition. Pay attention to supplementing vitamins and minerals. The content of calcium, phosphorus, selenium, zinc, etc. and the ratio of calcium to phosphorus in the diet should be appropriate.

 

During the rearing period, the feed should be changed at least twice at the age of 6-7 weeks and at the age of 16-18 weeks. There must be a transitional period for each refueling. It is not possible to change all suddenly, so that the chicken has a process of adaptation. Especially from the brooding period to the rearing period, the replacement of feed is a great turning point. The nutrient content of feed, such as crude protein content, has dropped from 18% to 19% to 15% to 16%. Changes in feed ingredients can easily change the palatability of chickens and reduce feed intake. If they are not managed well, chickens are prone to disease.

 

Therefore, the following methods can be adopted for feed transition. From the first 1 to 2 days of the 7th week of age, 2/3 of the breeding period feed and 1/3 of the breeding period feed are mixed and fed. For 5-7 days, use 1/3 of the brooding period feed and 2/3 of the rearing period feed to be mixed and fed. From the 8th week of age, they are completely fed with feed during the growing period.

 

The first kind of feed change method is relatively detailed, and it is often used when the composition of the chicks and feed species changes greatly. The third refueling method is relatively crude, and experienced farmers and broiler cage manufacturers believe that it is generally used when the composition of adult chickens and feed species changes little. The second refueling method lies between the two and has a wide range of applications.

 

The above are the precautions when using broiler cages to raise chickens. I hope that the above content will be useful for novice farmers.

How to maintain continuous ventilation for broiler cage equipment? In fact, when breeding in broiler cages, most of our farmers only pay attention to the temperature in the chicken house and ignore the ventilation in the broiler cage. Especially in the cold winter, in order to maintain the temperature of the chicken house and reduce heating costs, broiler cage farmers usually do not ventilate the chicken house. It is speculated that insufficient ventilation in the chicken house will lead to an increase in ascites in the middle and late stages of broilers.


At different ages, if the broiler cannot be ventilated normally, it will constitute an outbreak of various diseases, so it is necessary to ventilate the broiler cage on time.

 

The life activities of broilers are inseparable from oxygen. In the case of ensuring the normal temperature of the broiler cage, it is very important to ventilate the broiler cage. Ventilation can provide satisfactory oxygen to chickens, promote them to change customs, and maintain the health of chickens and the conversion rate of mobile feed. Especially when we use broiler cages now, due to its high density, ventilation should be carried out frequently. Ventilation can exhaust water vapor, ammonia, dust and waste heat in the chicken house and provide sufficient fresh air for the chickens.

 


Poor ventilation and high ammonia concentration can cause serious losses in production. Ventilation is the focus of management in the later stage of broiler breeding. In the later stage, the weight, feed intake and excretion of livestock, poultry and chickens are large. The carbon dioxide they exhale, the body heat they emit, the water they excrete, the ammonia accumulated in the chicken manure in the house, and the dust floating in the air in the house. If it cannot be discharged out of the house in time, the living environment in the house will get worse and worse, which will not only seriously affect the growth rate of broilers, but also increase the loss rate of broilers. The broiler cage must be kept clean during breeding.

 

It is necessary to choose mechanical ventilation for broiler cages, which can be divided into horizontal ventilation and longitudinal ventilation according to the direction of indoor airflow. There should be no dirt near the chicken breeding equipment, and the pipes of the chicken cage feeding equipment should be kept clean. Some parts of the equipment need proper lubricating oil to ensure the normal operation of the broiler cage.

 

Fully automatic chicken raising equipment is an auxiliary chicken raising equipment that has appeared in the chicken industry in recent years. There are many kinds of fully automatic chicken raising equipment. Different equipment can help breeders raise different breeds. It is very convenient, fast and efficient, and is loved by many breeders. So, let's take a look at how to raise chickens scientifically using fully automatic chicken raising equipment.

1. Choose your own fully automatic chicken raising equipment. Among the current chicken raising equipment, the types of automatic chicken raising equipment are commonly used automatic chicken raising equipment such as automatic feeders, automatic manure cleaners, automatic egg collection systems, fan wet curtains, and automatic drinking water equipment. Farmers should choose different equipment according to their actual needs.

2. Learn to operate fully automatic chicken raising equipment. Fully automatic poultry farming equipment is a relatively large-scale mechanized equipment that requires professional operation and maintenance. Whether the farmers operate it by themselves or let the staff operate, they must learn the correct operation method.

3. Maintaining the environment of the chicken house: The hygiene of the chicken house is maintained well, and the flock can reduce the occurrence of diseases. The chicken house has chicken flocks and fully automatic chicken raising equipment, so there are more dirt and harmful gases such as manure, feed, dust, ammonia, etc., which seriously affect the health of the chicken flock. Therefore, in order to ensure the sanitary environment of the chicken house, it must be cleaned.

4. Do a good job of immunization. Infectious diseases have serious health hazards to chicken flocks. The disease of chickens may be transmitted to the flocks of the entire chicken coop, causing huge losses. At present, the effective way to prevent infectious diseases is to immunize the flock, and farmers do not do immunization during the process of raising chickens.

The above four points are the main points of how to use fully automatic poultry farming chicken cages to raise chickens scientifically, and are also several tasks that farmers should pay attention to in the process of raising chickens. I hope that the above explanation can help the majority of farmers to raise chickens scientifically and rationally and improve economic benefits.
