Advantages of layer battery equipment

The layer battery equipment manufacturers tells the advantages of the layer cage. Do you know any advantages of the layer cage? is that clear? It doesn't matter if it is unclear. Let's talk about the breeding advantages of layer cages.


Chicken farmers should know that chicken cages play a big role in the process of breeding. Especially the layer battery cages, it is a good protection for eggs, let's take a look at some of the advantages of laying chicken cages.


The equipment plays an important role in the breeding, especially in the laying of laying hens. The first part of the laying hen cage and the cage door show its advantages. The density of the cage and the angle of the egg are more and more manifested from these aspects. The benefits of chicken.



The benefits of the cage: the upper and lower cages are completely staggered, often seen in 2 to 3 layers. The advantage is that there is no need to set up a dung board at the bottom of the cage. For example, the manure pit may not have a clearing system. The structure is simple, and the ventilation and illumination areas of each layer are large.


1. The mesh of the egg cage is relatively smooth, which can prevent the chicken from being injured in the foot.


2. The egg cage and the bottom net are encrypted, which can effectively prevent the fatigue of the ankle and laying hens.


3. The mesh of the egg cage is galvanized, which can improve the service life of the chicken cage. Generally, it can be used for 10 or 15 years.


4. High-density feeding of egg cages is more economical, and is conducive to epidemic prevention, and can also reduce the incidence of poultry diseases.


5. The unique door reinforcement design of the egg cage can effectively prevent the chicken from wasting feed when eating. And because the cage door space is increased, it is more convenient to manage the chicken.

Why Chicken immune failure

When we raise chickens in poultry farming equipment, it is common to vaccinate chickens to prevent disease, but sometimes it is still vaccinated. Why is this?

The first is that immunization is unscientific. The time of inoculation is not appropriate. Therefore, there is an inaccurate possibility of immune effect.

The second is that no antibody detection is performed. If the flock is in a special period, it is prone to immune failure without antibody testing.

The third is that the dose used for the vaccine is not accurate. It is not good for chickens to use large doses of vaccines.and is to cause adverse reactions after inoculation.


Farmers can choose the right brooding season in order to facilitate the grazing of ecological chickens. The best season of farming is in March to May, when the survival rate of brooding is high. By the middle chicken stage, due to suitable temperatures and long hours of outdoor activities, it can be fully exercised and exercised, resulting in strong physique, which is very beneficial to natural grazing, feeding and prevention of natural enemies in the future. Spring chicks are sexually mature and have long duration of egg production, especially chicks hatching in early spring.

Feeds on ecological chickens must be organic feed. Therefore, when planting ecological chicken feed ingredients, it must comply with the requirements of organic foods, and animal feeding supplements that are artificially supplemented must also comply with the standards for the production of organic foods. It is forbidden to add chemicals during the production of artificial feed to ensure the quality of ecological chickens. The quality of natural feeds depends on the natural environment. There are natural forages, mature fruit and various natural insects. Only ecological chickens have enough natural feed and nutrition to produce high-quality products with high nutritional value and nourishing properties.

The poultry breeding industry has always been a very popular project, and with the development of society, the way of raising chickens is gradually changing. Poultry layer cage system breeding is a more popular way of breeding layer hens in recent years, and it is also a common way of raising chickens in chicken farms nowadays. benefit. 

Layer battery cages breeding is to concentrate the laying hens in the hen house. If it is raised in the previous horizontal and free-range methods, the layer chicken flock will take up more space. This kind of breeding method will be less than the number of cages, that is, the density of cages will be greater. It can be said that a chicken house with the same floor area will raise more laying hens in cages.



The breeding method of layer battery cages adopts a three-dimensional multi-layer method. This chicken house area will be fully utilized. In this way, the number of holidays will be increased, which can create greater benefits for farmers.

Another important point is that the use of layer cages is very helpful to the survival rate of layer hens. For the poultry farming industry, chickens live in battery cages and they can have a clean and comfortable environment. Chicken and feces will not come into contact. The manure of the chicken will be cleaned out of the chicken house by the poultry manure removal equipment, which will reduce the breeding of bacteria and increase the survival rate and egg production rate of the laying hens.

Empty chicken house management

The chicken house should be cleaned up always, and the empty chicken house also need cleaned . After the chickens are transferred out, in order to provide a safe environment for the future chicken flocks and surrounding chicken flocks, the house must be empty for at least 20 days. Management of key links such as cleaning, rinsing and disinfection.

Clean the material tower, feed storage room and trough to avoid waste of feed, and clear the chicken manure from the chicken house to ensure the chicken manure treatment in the chicken house. Chicken manure outside the chicken house. First clean it in a bag, clean it, rinse the road with clean water, and finally spray disinfection.

Clean the drinking water system, power supply system, cages and other equipment and facilities; protect the electrical equipment control switches in the house. When arranging the house, try not to remove the facilities and items from the house. It should be arranged, washed and disinfected in the house. If the facility or item must be removed, strict cleaning and disinfection should be carried out before removal to prevent contamination of other areas.

The poultry cage equipment can be washed 2 to 3 days after the house is finished. In the process of rinsing, according to the principle of first, then, after, after, after and after, to ensure the rinsing effect and work efficiency, at the same time, it can also save costs. After rinsing and finishing, check the working effect. If the rinsing is unqualified, it should be re-rinsed immediately. And check again.

After the house is washed clean, the water pipes of each floor should be adjusted to the appropriate height, and all the equipment in the house (including feeding, ventilation, scraping, lighting, drinking water, temperature supply, etc.) should be thoroughly overhauled, all preparations Do it.

What are the main points of the laying period?

Do you know how many days of hatching an egg can produce a chicken? When does the chicken grow to start laying eggs? What is the peak period of laying eggs? do we need to care something?

A fertilized egg usually hatches the chicken after 21 days, the duck egg is 28 days, the goose egg is 30~33 days, the pigeon egg is 18 days, the pearl egg is 26 days, and the fire egg is 27~28 days. It takes these stages for a chick to go from hatching to final elimination.

Chicken raising, especially laying hens, determines the length of the egg production period. Why should limit light and limit materials before? Because, at the stage of 43~126 days, if the light is not limited, the chicken will lay eggs in advance, resulting in a shortened egg production period of 3 to 5 months, causing serious losses.

So the peak of egg production is so important, what should farmers pay attention to?

In addition to daily management, pay more attention to the condition of laying hens. Usually, in addition to packing eggs in egg packing system, clear dung, feeding, cleaning, you should also observe the status of the laying hens, see if there are sick chickens, etc. In short, pay more attention. Laying hens must ensure that nutrition is kept up.

Reduce stress and maintain environmental sanitation. High-yielding laying hens are easily frightened, resulting in less food for laying hens and lower egg production rates.

The problem to be paid attention to in raising chickens in summer: the optimum temperature for chicken adaptation is 13 to 25 degrees, and the production is customarily used for 21 to 25 degrees. In the hot summer, the chickens are fed in the cool morning.


The temperature difference between day and night in spring is large. It is necessary to pay attention to controlling the constant temperature. If the temperature is too high or too low, the weight of the broiler will be affected. The weight of the chicks should be 4 times of 7 days after entering the house. If this standard is not met, it will affect the growth and development of broilers. If the temperature exceeds 38 ° C for more than 3 hours in the first week of brooding, it will affect the growth and development of the chicks.

(1) Temperature control before chicks enter the poultry farming cages.

Be sure to fully pre-warm the brooding room, preferably more than 12 hours in advance, to keep the temperature of the air, floor and wall of the house consistent. In production practice, the temperature of brooding is not up to standard. Although the temperature in the air has reached the required level, the ground temperature is still relatively low. It is easy to appear cold on the second day after entering the chick. Although it can be adjusted, the late chicks tend to The intestinal tract is not good.

(2) Pay attention to temperature control during immunization.

Every immunization should control the temperature, preferably 2 ° C ~ 3 ° C higher than usual, due to the weak immunity of the body during immunization, it is easy to infect mycoplasma or E. coli disease, so during this period the house should be suitable temperature.

  •  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.
