Layer Chicken Farms - Poultry Farming Strategies of Layers and Broilers

First of all, chicken can obtain higher economic benefits. Self-made feeds: At present, the prices of commercial compound feeds produced by the feed processing sector are relatively high. Farmers may purchase full set of chicken In order to reduce costs, it is best for farmers and chicken farmers to feed their own chicken. Use local produce or self-cultivated food and other agricultural and sideline products for food preparation and try to be as comprehensive as possible.

Secondly, purchase of finished feed and then re-preparation: In order to spend less to feed, you can buy a lower price of compound feed. However, due to its poor quality, in order to ensure the nutritional needs of chicken, you can add some homemade soybean cake, cottonseed cake, peanut cake and so on. You can also purchase more fish meal, blood meal, bone meal, amino acid, and other additives, and feed it evenly with the feed.

Thirdly, as the season changes, the feed intake of chickens will also change. In summer and autumn, where the temperature is higher, the feed intake of the chicken is reduced, and the protein feed and amino acid content of the diet should be appropriately increased. When the winter chickens are in season, the food intake will increase, the protein feed and amino acids in the diet should be reduced appropriately, and the amount of roughage should be increased appropriately to save costs.

With the advancement of economic development technology, people no longer use the traditional way of raising chickens. The use of laying hens to raise chickens can improve work efficiency and reduce labor intensity. What problems need to be regulated by laying chickens with poultry cages for sale ?

First. Disinfection is an effective method to ensure the hygiene and safety of chicken houses. Correct and reasonable disinfection can kill the pathogenic microorganisms in the chicken house in time, but many farmers do not pay attention to disinfection or disinfect according to the formal operation procedures. As a result, disinfection has no effect, and the house has poor sanitary conditions and increased disease.

Second, immunization is an effective method to prevent infectious diseases of chicken flocks. However, the vaccine operation of many farmers is not standardized, which will lead to the failure of flock immunity, which not only increases the cost, but also has not achieved good results.

Third, when raising chickens, there will be many chicken farms around the chicken house. Sometimes they will go to other chicken houses to see each other, but this is not good. Going to other chicken houses is not safe, so it will The bacteria are brought to their own chicken house to bring disease to the chicken.

Fourth, because the weather changes in the four seasons are relatively large, we must do a good job of preventive measures for weather changes, but now many farmers do not take active preventive measures when encountering sudden changes in weather or other stress factors, causing chickens to become sick. If the weather is cold, warm measures should be taken; if the weather gets hot, take measures to reduce the temperature and pay attention to ventilation.

Fifth. Save the chicken feed to avoid mold. If the chicken eats, it will be sick. At the same time, it should also be noted that the chicken feed should not be replaced at will, so as to prevent the chicken from adapting and causing the chicken to become sick.

Light management of chicken flocks

Light is an important environmental factor affecting chickens. It is necessary to know that suitable light can stimulate the secretion of sex hormones in hens, enhance the activity of ovaries and fallopian tubes, accelerate the formation and discharge of eggs, and the development of fallopian tubes, thereby improving the production capacity of hens. We should pay attention to these techniques when using chicken poultry cage equipment to raise chickens.

 


Do not reduce the lighting time during the laying period. The first time of adding light is 18 to 19 weeks old, and the light is generally started by the standard weight of 18 weeks old. For example, the standard weight of 18 weeks of age is 1.55 kilograms, that is, the light stimulation is started with the weight of 1.55 kilograms, but no later than the end of 19 weeks. The addition period is determined according to the weight of the chicken group, and it is generally preferred once a week. The time for adding light shall not exceed 1 hour, and the period of addition shall not be more than twice a week, nor less than two weeks. According to the light cycle to determine the duration of the light, generally the first two light stimulation is better, if the light is applied once a week, it is recommended to add light for the first two times, and then increase by half an hour every week until 14~16 hours; If you add twice a week, split the one-week addition time into two. The peak lighting time must not be less than 15 hours. The upper limit of the illumination time is 16 hours, and constant illumination is applied when the upper limit is reached.

 

Be sure to consider the consumption and increase of the flock before adding light. The increase in illumination is mainly due to the fact that the chicken population does not meet the standard and needs to stimulate the flock to feed, thereby increasing the weight of the chicken population. Lighting management must take into account the effects of natural light length and seasonal factors to develop a reasonable lighting program. When supplementing the light, the power supply should be stable, and the floor area should be about 3 watts per square meter.

 

 

 


Brooding period. Both chicks and broiler chickens are in a growing period. At this stage, light management should promote the healthy growth of chicks and have a high survival rate, but prevent hens from reaching sexual maturity prematurely. Chicks can grow well under low light intensity, but in order to make them eat and drink as early as possible, the first week of light can reach 12 hours per day, and the light intensity can be larger.

 


Breeding period (7-20 weeks old). The main purpose of light management is to control growth and development, and to achieve sexual maturity at the appropriate age. Premature sexual maturity, not only the egg weight is small at the time of opening, but also due to insufficient maturity, it will be discontinued shortly after the start of production, and then it will not be stable and high yield. From the stage of young chicks to 10 weeks of age, the length of light duration does not have much effect on sexual maturity, while the age of 10-18 weeks is critical.period. The lighting time is short during this time. Chickens raised in closed houses are completely artificially illuminated, and the duration and intensity of light can be controlled.

 

Laying period. The principle of light management during laying period is to enable hens to start production and reach a peak at the right time, giving full play to their egg production potential. Therefore, the illumination time should be long, and it should not be gradually shortened, and the illumination intensity should not be weakened. During the laying period, it is generally used with increasing or constant illumination, but not less than 14 to 17 hours of light per day. Laying hens are very sensitive to light hours. Generally, they start from 21 weeks of age, and give chickens 13 to 14 hours a day. After that, they increase by 30 minutes per week and increase to 17 hours to maintain the peak of egg production.

 

After determining the addition period, do not change it at will. In the process of adding light, if there is a large difference between the actual body weight and the standard body weight, the lightening interval can be appropriately extended, but it must not be longer than two weeks at the latest. From the beginning of the light to the peak of the egg production, it is generally better to stimulate it continuously for more than eight times. The light intensity should not be arbitrarily changed during the addition of light, which has an effect on the growth and development of the chicken in the automatic poultry farming cage.

 

 

  •  Do not mix the feed water with porridge-like chicken. Thinners tend to dilute the digestive juices and reduce the activity of various digestive enzymes, resulting in incomplete feed digestion, poor nutrient absorption, and even indigestion, which greatly reduces feed utilization. Chickens are also prone to fat deposits because of their thinner skin, and their subcutaneous fat is too thick to cater to consumer preferences.
  • Try to use a free drinking fountain, or plastic cover drinking fountains, such as the use of plastic cover drinking fountains best hanging up, to the chicken can drink water is appropriate to ensure that the chicken has sufficient clean drinking water.

  • When the weather is hot, it can be fed in the morning and in the evening and it can improve the feed intake of chickens. Wet material can be used at noon, and the ratio of material to water is suitable for 1:0.5-2. The degree of opening is better. Generally, feeding dry materials in the morning and feeding wet materials at noon can stimulate chickens to eat more food.
  • When your chickens run into high temperature, you can add glucose and vitamin C to your drinking water, which can increase the energy lost due to lack of feed intake. It can also enhance the chicken's physique and anti-stress ability. It also has certain auxiliary treatment effects on high fever.

Environmental management of chicken farms

1. The chicken battery cages are not connected to each other to avoid cross-infection between the chickens and the chickens.

 

2. The farther away from other chicken-raising units, the better, thus reducing the risk of disease transmission;

 

3. All the houses must be thoroughly cleaned with high-pressure faucets. All tools in the house, such as electric fans, brooms, etc., must be cleaned;

 

4. Ensure that chicken farm personnel are not in contact with the outside flocks;

 

 

5. All chicken houses must be disinfected with a broad-spectrum cleaning agent that kills important pathogens;

 

6. Actively take measures to control rats, flies and stray animals. Once a mouse is present, use rodenticide or use a rodent-proof house to clear and control it;

 

7. When chickens of different ages are raised in the same chicken farm, the care of the chicken must start with the healthiest chicken feathers (usually the smallest chicken). Workers are not allowed to return to the chicken house from the big chicken house until the clothes and boots have been properly cleaned and disinfected;

 

8. If the dead chicken is found, the chicken house should be taken out immediately and disposed of immediately;

 

9. Workers must always wear clean clothes and boots when entering the house. Those who have been in contact with the big chicken-type laying hen must take a bath before entering the chicken house to save the person;

 

10. Non-essential personnel are not allowed to enter the chicken farm. Visitors must abide by the above rules;

 

11. Vehicles outside are not allowed to enter unless they are cleaned and disinfected.

Is the chicken house disinfected way right?

We all know that if we want to raise chickens, this part of disinfection plays a decisive role in breeding. It is reasonable to reduce the incidence of disinfection, which greatly reduces the cost of breeding. If the disinfection is unreasonable, it will waste money and delay the disease. Increase the incidence of flocks and reduce our economic benefits. Today we will come together to see how disinfection is the most correct.

 

1. The general situation of the chicken battery cages is to disinfect twice a week, at least once a week, and more frequently in the summer.

 

2. Two or more disinfectant products must be used alternately in the farm.

 

3. It is very important to thoroughly clean the farm before disinfection. It is very important not to dust the house, the roof spider web layer is layered, the ground is not cleaned, and disinfection is started. The disinfection effect is very poor. It is the same as no disinfection. This is also a mistake that many farmers' friends tend to ignore and easy to make. Everyone must pay attention.

 

 

4. 3 days after the vaccination vaccine, do not disinfect the chicken farm, and do not disinfect the chicken farm equipment. Otherwise it will greatly reduce the effectiveness of the vaccine.

 

5. When disinfecting with disinfectant water, whether it is summer or winter, it is not possible to spray the disinfectant directly onto the chicken. Instead, it is sprayed on the top of the hall or above the chicken cage. It can fall naturally on the chicken body and cannot be sprayed directly onto the chicken. To prevent the chickens from catching a cold.

 

6. When disinfecting in winter, try to use the Chinese medicine disinfection to fumigation, which can effectively prevent the chickens from catching a cold.

 

7. When using disinfectant for disinfection, it should be disinfected strictly according to the ratio. Do not increase the proportion of disinfection at random, so that it will not increase the disinfection effect and increase toxicity.

 

In short, the disinfection of chicken farms is very rigorous. If we can properly disinfect, it will greatly reduce the incidence of chicken farms, reduce our farming costs, and thus improve our economic efficiency.

There are more and more farmers raising hens, and they are all using battery cage for chickens and breeding equipment to raise chickens. How should the hens prevent the stress reaction in the chicken cage and Poultry Rearing Equipment? Here are some suggestions.

 

 

 


1. Farmers should start from the growth characteristics of laying hens to provide a good, quiet and comfortable growing environment for the laying hens. The control of temperature and humidity, as well as the management of ventilation should be scientific and reasonable, avoiding the sheds caused by poor ventilation. Moisture and air pollution, etc., to avoid the stress of environmental failure.

 

2. Farmers must ensure that the stability of feeding during the whole breeding process, such as laying water, feeding, disinfection and other environments, must be in order, time is regular, farmers should pay attention to not being able to break water, lack of materials .

 

3. During the breeding process, the farmers should control the environment of the chicken house, such as fixing the time of the switch lights, cooling the work in the summer, keeping warm in the winter, and preventing the adverse effects of high and low temperature on the laying hens. In the autumn when the temperature changes greatly, timely prevention and control measures should be taken. In the rainy season, work to prevent storms is also needed.

 

4. In the farm where the laying hens are raised, the farmers should be careful not to yell and scream, and pay attention to the chicken houses not to be built in noisy places.

 

5. The feed ingredients required for different growth stages of laying hens are different. Therefore, the farmers must change the feed at a fixed stage, and there must be a transitional stage in the process of replacing the feed, so as to ensure the smooth adaptation of the chicken.

chicken house Construction Suggest

The construction of the chicken house is related to the breeding work of the chickens in the back. The scientific and reasonable chicken house can play a role in improving work efficiency and management convenience. Now I would like to
suggest the construction of the battery cage system for layer as follows:

layer chicken cage for ordinary window chicken houses

The chicken house has windows, which can use natural light and natural ventilation to save production costs. Generally, there is no mechanical ventilation device, and most of the brick and wood structure is used. The building form is
basically the same as that of common civil buildings, but it is often opened at both ends. Floor window and roof vent cap.
The construction cost of such a house is medium, and the environmental control efficiency is general. When the person controls the illumination, it is difficult to shorten the illumination time. Thorough disinfection is more difficult
and suitable for small-scale professional households.
