The main points of the environmental temperature control of the battery layer hen cages

The right temperature of the chicken house can exert greater production potential for chickens. The quality of environmental control directly affects the success of breeding. Therefore, temperature control is an important factor in feeding. The following chicken breeding equipment manufacturers explain the main points of chicken house temperature control.

In the environmental control of the layer hen chicken house, the layer chicken can obtain a higher survival rate, weight gain speed and feed remuneration in the above-mentioned suitable temperature environment. Whether the specific temperature of each brooding is appropriate or not is determined by the dynamic performance of the chicks:

When the temperature is appropriate, the chicks are evenly distributed indoors, lively, with smooth feathers, and close to the body surface. They are relatively quiet during sleep and scramble to eat.



When the temperature is too low, the chicks will show low temperature performance. The chicks will be crowded near the heat source or in a certain corner, their feathers will be fluffy, the spirit will be wilted, and they will make continuous calls. This way for a long time, it is easy to cause the chicks to catch a cold or be crushed to death. It must be heated immediately and the crowded chicks must be dispersed.

When the temperature is too high, the chicks stay away from the heat source, spread their wings and lie down, panting, and rush to drink water. There is often no water in the drinking fountain, but the fluff is wet. Over time, the physique of the chicks will be weakened, growth will be hindered, and even heat death will be caused. When the temperature is too high, the temperature should be gradually lowered, but be aware that a sudden drop in temperature can cause a cold.

Therefore, attention must be paid to the temperature control of the chicken house during the entire feeding period of the laying hens. A thermometer can be placed in an appropriate place in the house for observation, and certain measures can be taken to cool down or adjust the temperature. In the hot season, when the temperature in the chicken house is high, you can open the doors, windows and vents, turn on the fan or exhaust fan, increase the ventilation in the house, and lower the temperature in the house. When necessary, cold water can be sprayed on the ground or sprayed on the roof to cool down.

The use of poultry battery layer hen cages to raise chickens requires more attention to the living environment of the chickens in the hen house. Provide a suitable temperature environment for the chickens so that they can grow healthier.
