Chicken Farming Information for Chicken Breeds

1. Effective ventilation

Many farmers often use improper methods to ventilate the house. For example, installing an electric fan in the house directly blows the chicken. In fact, this method does not have much cooling effect. Because the chicken itself does not have sweat glands, it is only a hair dryer, no sweat evaporation does not take heat, and most of them are installed ceiling fans, the wind blows from top to bottom, which further prevents the rise of hot air and hinders the entry of low temperature air. Circulating hot air in the house is more likely to raise the ambient temperature. Although some farmers know to blow air from the outside to the inside, or ventilate the air outside the house, they do not know which fan should be blown inward, and which fan should be blown outwards, and the result is not good. In fact, this is not difficult to grasp, because the hot air in the house flows upwards, and the cold air flows below. As long as the fan that blows the hair in the house is installed below, the upper side can be exhausted outwards, so that it can form effective convection and take away part of the heat of the chicken body, which will have a good cooling effect.

2. Water spray cooling

Many farmers know that water spray can cool down, but I don't know how to use it. Sometimes the method is wrong, and it also plays the opposite role. First of all, we should understand the principle of water spray cooling. Water spray cooling is the use of liquid water to evaporate in the air, using evaporation and heat absorption to cool down, so it is necessary to consider this aspect when spraying water. First of all, the use of water evaporation, it is necessary to make water fog, which not only increases the surface area of the water, but also does not cause large drops of water to fall on the chicken, causing stress, or the formation of "falling chicken." The time of spraying water should be effective only when it is dry and windy. This is also conducive to the evaporation of water, and can not be carried out in the "sauna day" of high temperature and high humidity. That is just to increase the humidity, the water in the air is saturated, there is no evaporation, and the cooling effect is not achieved, and there is an opposite effect. At this time, it is sufficient to strengthen the effective ventilation.

3. Drinking water at the right time

Every time the high temperature comes, there are cases where the farmer has died of chicken due to lack of water. In addition to the common problems of water shortage, water leakage, water blocking, etc., another important reason is that due to the hot weather, individual chickens occupy the drinking water position. For example, when drinking water in a hanging pot, one or two chickens climbed onto the hanging pot, and other chickens could not drink water, causing water shortage and death. Therefore, the hotter the weather, the more often farmers should go to the house to observe and find problems in a timely manner.

4. Reasonable exercise

In the hot summer months, especially before the onset of heavy rain or during the high temperature and high humidity period in summer, the air pressure is particularly low. Individual chickens that are left untouched for a long time are likely to cause hypoxia death, which usually occurs in the afternoon or evening. Therefore, it is necessary to observe the chicken house frequently to make the chicken move in the chicken battery cages, which can reduce death and reduce losses.
