Chicken Farming Information for Chicken Breeds

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
