What is the Best Chicken Farming Density?

The number of chickens per square meter of feeding area in chicken layer cages for sale is called the stocking density. The feeding and drinking position occupied by each chicken is also an indispensable condition for mastering the stocking density. If the density is too large, the chickens are crowded, the environmental humidity is increased, the feeding is uneven, the chicks are not well-developed, the disease and convulsions are susceptible, the chicks are weakened, the mortality rate increases, and the growth rate decreases.

The low density of chickens raised in wire chicken cages for sale is beneficial to the survival and growth of the chicks, but it is not conducive to heat preservation and is not economical. The density should be adjusted according to the type, variety, brooding mode, season, age, ventilation status of the chicks. Automated farming equipment cage brooding should be correspondingly increased with age, the density should be reduced by about 30% at 3 - 4 weeks of age, and by about 15% at 5-6 weeks.
