How to use broiler cages to raise chickens to reduce mortality

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.
