Broiler Feeding System - Poultry Farming Strategies of Layers and Broilers

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!


Layer cage manufacturers talk about every stage in the process of broiler breeding, and the later breeding of broilers also needs attention. The growth rate and survival rate of broilers in the later period are directly related to the economic benefits of the farmers, so the fattening work of broilers in the later period must be paid attention to to reduce the mortality of the flock.




1. Ensure proper temperature: When raising broilers in the late stage, the breeder should pay attention to the temperature of the chicken house not to be set too high. The proper temperature is that the chickens are evenly evacuated, the body stretches, and some chickens open their mouths to breathe as an indication, and leave. Near the heat source, the breathing rate is too fast, mostly caused by the high indoor temperature, adjust the temperature in time. In summer, the temperature is too high and the feed intake of chickens cannot increase. Therefore, a suitable temperature can ensure the best conversion function of the feed. In summer, the focus is on heatstroke prevention and cooling. Adequate ventilation: In the later stage, the chicken house is mainly ventilated to improve the small environment in the house and ensure sufficient oxygen circulation to ensure the normal metabolism of the chicken body and the absorption of nutrients. When ventilating, avoid cool breeze blowing directly on the chicken body. Relying on the water curtain to cool down in summer is not very stressful for the chickens that gradually adapt to the wind speed, but the existence of the wind speed will more or less affect the chicken's mobility.


2. Ensure reasonable light management: light work is a very important task in chicken breeding. Farmers know that broiler chickens have a short growth cycle and high feed remuneration. For farmers, excessive weight gain is feed intake. Speed, especially light, is directly related to feed intake, so farmers must control the light in the chicken coop during the later stage of broiler breeding.


3. Pay more attention to the flock of chickens: When the flocks are resting at night, the farmers can observe the flocks frequently, listen to the breathing of the chickens, whether there are snoring, hiccups, or sneezing. If you have the above symptoms, you should think of the respiratory tract. Disease, observe whether there are respiratory symptoms, walk slowly in the chicken coop and listen after turning off the light for about half an hour.


4. Choose reasonable disinfection drugs in broiler cages : Disinfection with chickens is a must to ensure the health of the chicken coop and flocks. When choosing disinfection drugs, farmers are advised to choose a broad-spectrum, efficient, strong, non-toxic and harmless , Low-irritating and non-corrosive disinfection drugs, and disinfect according to scientific and reasonable steps to avoid disinfection errors that affect the health of the chickens.


5. The correct method for disinfection of chickens: When disinfecting, the farmers first prepare the liquid medicine in the disinfection container, start the disinfection from one end of the chicken coop, and walk towards the other end while spraying. The spray nozzle should be upward to make the sprayed liquid drop slowly like a mist. The ground, walls, cages, and ceilings should be sprayed with liquid liquid, and the action should be gentle. Do not disinfect the chickens to prevent the chickens from breathing. To drugs that cause diseases of the respiratory tract.


6.  the late-stage medication should be prescribed to the symptoms: in the later stage of raising broilers, the late-stage medication is the stage where the drug cost of the whole batch of chickens rises the fastest, so the medication must be stable and accurate at this stage, and do not blindly administer the medication. In the later stage of administration, you must prescribe the right medicine on the premise of a clear diagnosis. If you miss the best treatment opportunity, the flock may lose control, which is very likely to cause disastrous consequences.

In many cases, because farmers do not properly grasp the knowledge of scientific feeding and management of chicken farms, it is easy to cause the early death of chicken farms, thus affecting the survival rate of chicks and further affecting the ultimate chicken efficiency. How do you scientifically avoid the early death of a chick when raising in poultry cages for sale.  

Drinking water must be timely: especially after long-distance transportation of chicks, be sure to drink water in time, otherwise it will cause dehydration. Take a free drinking method and drink 5% of sugar water for the first time.

The temperature should be appropriate. The chicks are sensitive to temperature and maintain a 35-32 reduction trend within 1-3 weeks after hatching, increasing with age, and decreasing 2-3 times per week thereafter.

The density should be appropriate. if the brood density is too high, there will be more harmful gases in the house, and it will produce worms; the brood density is too small, the brooding area and equipment are not fully utilized, resulting in waste. The average density for flat raising is 20 per square meter, and 40-50 per square meter for cage raising.

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.

Broiler feeding equipment is a relatively popular breeding equipment in modern times. The emergence of such equipment has helped farmers solve many problems, while also protecting the environment and reducing environmental pollution. Everyone should also understand some of the advantages of fully automatic chicken equipment, but even the best equipment, if used improperly, there will be misunderstandings, then everyone knows the misunderstanding of automatic chicken farming equipment? Don't worry about it first, let's take a look at everything.


Two common mistakes in the use of broiler equipment:


1. Choose cheaper when purchasing broiler equipment: The cost of raising chicken equipment to raise chickens is much higher than that of the past. Therefore, many users tend to prefer cheap equipment when purchasing chicken equipment, and pay attention to the quality of equipment. Whether the requirements and standards are met, especially chicken cage equipment, chicken cages are the main equipment for raising chickens. Chicken cages with poor structure and poor quality will affect the growth and production of chickens, and the age is not guaranteed.


2. Do not pay attention to the maintenance of broiler equipment: Since the chicken farming equipment is generally large-scale mechanized equipment, the service life is relatively long, and the farmers need to carry out reasonable inspection and maintenance work on each broiler equipment on a regular basis, which can promptly find problems and The fault is solved, and the service life of the equipment can be ensured and extended, and the efficiency of the chicken raising work of the farmers is exerted. However, many farmers have neglected the work, resulting in short service life, high failure rate and increased cost.


Regarding the misunderstanding of broiler equipment, misunderstanding of equipment maintenance and the correct method of selecting broiler equipment, broiler equipment manufacturers can only analyze it here. I hope these contents can help you solve some problems.

Reasons for dyspepsia in chicken houses

Nowadays, most farmers raise broiler chickens by using battery cage for broilers. It is convenient and quick to use automatic feeding equipment, and it also saves feed waste. But now, as the summer is about to pass, the autumn will follow, and the rain will be wet. Sometimes there will be a state of indigestion. In fact, there are many factors to consider for this problem.


Feed mold infection, mycotoxins can cause digestive diseases such as oral cavity, intestinal tract, causing indigestion, mycotoxin contamination including feeding mildewed feed, and pollution in processing, transportation and storage. Due to the hot weather, the oil is corrupted due to improper preservation, causing broilers to cause glandular gastritis, muscle erosion and enteritis. Free radicals or reactive oxygen molecules produced by fatty acids can affect their immunity, slow down growth, cause poor pigmentation and cause enteritis. Excessive fat addition can cause lubricative diarrhea.



The nutritional requirements of broilers are relatively high in chicken battery cages . The low content of crude fiber in the feed will result in unbalanced nutrition and excessive crude fiber, resulting in large feed intake of broilers and confusion of gastrointestinal function, which may also cause indigestion. Insufficient energy in the feed The broiler is eating for energy, not enough energy, increasing the feed intake of the broiler, causing other nutrients not directly absorbed and directly excreted, thereby causing indigestion.

It is necessary to know that broilers grow fast, especially the growth of internal organs is 35 days ago; because of the low anti-stress ability of broilers, the environmental requirements are higher. There is no regularity in broiler cage feeding, overeating, or stressing the chicken, or causing the chicken to experience low temperatures at a constant temperature, which can cause indigestion. 60% of broiler chickens are made of water, so there must be sufficient drinking water to meet the needs of the chickens, while some farmers do not pay attention to drinking water sanitation, drinking polluted water or degraded water, causing chicken indigestion.


With chicken market increasingly competitive, and farmers modernization consciousness gradually improve, more and more farmers to standardization, scale breeding mode, build the henhouse chicken farming became the caged equipment now farmers choose mode of breeding, so farmers in the building of the hen house should be how to build?

1. Site selection: avoid intensive farming areas with better water quality.

2. Feeding mode: cage raising in two stages: "raising young" and "laying eggs".

3. Chicken battery cages construction: it is recommended to raise 15,000 to 20,000 chickens per chicken coop, adopt closed chicken coop and broiler cage feeding equipment, cement floor, wall white cement batch white, automatic drinking water, feeding, ventilation, manure cleaning, etc.

First, the overall layout of the chicken farm:

1. General principles: from the perspective of facilitating epidemic prevention and organizational production. The divisional layout of the field area is the production area, office area, living area, auxiliary production area, and sewage treatment area.

2. Arrangement principle: According to the dominant wind direction, the topography and the flow direction are the living area, office area, auxiliary production area, production area and sewage treatment area. If the terrain is inconsistent with the wind direction, the dominant wind direction is dominant.

Second, the layout of the chicken farm: the overall plan should consider the factors such as the orientation of the chicken house, the spacing of the house, the road, sewage, fire prevention and epidemic prevention. The recommended design of 100,000 large-scale chicken farms is recommended to be arranged in 6 single or double row chicken houses. The single chicken house is 16,000 closed chicken houses. It is equipped with four rows of four aisles and three-tiered ladder cages. Curtains, ventilated windows, mechanical cleaning, mechanical feeding and automatic lighting, automatic drinking water system.

1. Single-roof house orientation: It adopts east-west or east-north (or west) 15 degrees, which is conducive to improving the winter temperature and avoiding summer solar radiation, using the dominant wind direction to improve the ventilation conditions of the house.

2. Chicken house spacing: two types of single-row houses and double-row houses. The spacing of the chicken houses is 10 to 20 meters for brooding and 10 to 15 meters for laying hens.

3. Chicken farm road: The chicken farm road is divided into two types: clean road and dirty road. The clean road is used for transporting feed, chicken and eggs in the field. The dirt is used to transport manure, dead chicken and sick chicken. The two must not be used interchangeably.



With the progress of the times and the development of science and technology, the genetic breeding technology of broilers has been greatly improved, and the nutritional formulation of chicken feed has also undergone new changes. Broiler breeds are constantly being optimized, and the feeding and management viewpoints of broiler chickens are no longer practical. The broiler breeders at this time need to understand some new ideas for the early feeding and management of broilers.

Do a good job of early feeding chicks, so that the chicks get even and good development in the first week. Changing the way that chickens were fed before drinking water for a period of time before they were fed will become better when the chicks arrive. Change the practice of distributing drinking fountains according to the number of chickens in the past, and increase the number of drinking fountains accordingly so that the chicks can easily find the water in the column after entering the house. If the chicks do not use the trays within the first day of arrival, use clean plastic cloths on the net or spread clean and hard papers to spread the material on the chicks for feeding. The effect is much better than using the trays alone.
