Poultry Farming News of Chicken Breeds

Poultry rearing of chicken breeds include egg laying hens, broilers and baby chickens, which would be the most important chicken rearing information for your commercial chicken farming business. You will also get more experience on the industry farming.

Farmers know in the process of raising chicks that it is necessary to cut the beaks of the chickens at the chick stage, so why should the beaks of the chicks be cut during the breeding process? What are the benefits of cutting the beaks of the chicks? The poultry equipment manufacturer came to tell the farmers about the importance of beak cutting for chicks and some precautions for beak cutting of chicks in the process of raising chickens with chicken equipment.


Why do chicks have to have their beaks cut off?

 The importance of beak cutting in chicks: In the process of daily feeding, if the beak cutting is not carried out in time, the flock is prone to pecking. Beak cutting is an effective measure to prevent chickens from pecking; and beak cutting can also prevent adult chickens. The long beak of the group leads to the phenomenon of wasting feed during feeding, preventing the waste of feed. Prevent all kinds of vices and reduce feed and waste. During the feeding process, due to the reasons such as too strong light, too high density, poor ventilation, insufficient feed nutrition, large group feeding, etc., the flocks will often have vicious habits (beak anus, toe pecking, feather pecking), which will cause serious damage to the flock. loss.



How to break the beak of the chicks in the process of raising chicks?

First of all, the farmer must first determine the time for the chicks to cut their beaks. Generally, the time for the chicks to cut their beaks will be carried out when the chicks are 7-10 days old. At this time, the stress response caused by the beak cutting is relatively small. After the first beak cutting, the second chicken beak cutting should be carried out according to the effect and production situation.

Beak trimming of chickens, to check the health of the flock, it can only be done in healthy conditions. If sick chickens and weak chickens are found, they should be picked out and raised separately, and then cut off after they recover.

In addition, chickens are generally not suitable for beak cutting during the immunization period or other stress conditions. The content of vitamins should be increased in the diet 3 days before and after beak trimming, and of course, vitamins can also be provided by drinking water. When the chicken is cut off the beak, it is necessary to prepare the drugs and utensils for disinfection and hemostasis, so that it can be applied along with it in case of an accident.

There are many tools and methods for beak cutting. It is better to use a special beak cutting device, such as a foot-operated beak cutting device, and an electric iron is used in some areas. The length of the cut beak is 1/2--2/3 of the upper beak and 1/3 of the lower beak. When cutting the beak, wait until the blade is burnt to maroon, hold the chicken with your hand, put your thumb against the back of the chicken's head, and press the index finger against the chicken's lower jaw and gently press the pharynx, so that the chicken's head cannot swing left and right, and at the same time make the chicken Tongue retracted. The beak cutting operation time is fast, and it usually ends within 1--2 seconds.

Beak cutting is to cut off parts of the chicken's upper and lower beaks with the help of a hot blade. Generally, a special beak breaker is used. The aperture of the beak breaker in the juvenile stage is 4.4 mm at 7 to 10 days old, and 4.8 mm at 7 to 10 days old. The method of breaking the beak is to grab the chicken leg with the left hand, hold the chicken with the right hand, put the right thumb on the top of the chicken's head, put the index finger on the swallow, apply a little pressure to make the chicken shrink the tongue, choose the appropriate aperture, and cut it 2 cm away from the nostril. . When burning, the blade is rolled around the cut surface of the beak to flatten the corners of the mouth, which can prevent the outer edge of the beak from regrowing.

The above is what the poultry equipment manufacturer told the farmers about why they need to cut the beak of the chicks in the process of raising chickens, as well as some points and precautions for the beak cutting of the chicks. I hope that the above description can bring the some help to the farmers. Thanks for your attention!

How to choose feed for raising chickens with automatic chicken raising equipment? The trend of modern chicken farming is an intensive farming model. Because the use of automatic chicken raising equipment can provide a comfortable growing environment for chickens. Make the flock grow and develop in a good environment. So what kind of feed is good for raising chickens? The automatic chicken raising equipment manufacturer will briefly introduce it.


The growth of laying hens can be divided into: chicks, rearing period, laying period, middle laying period and late laying period. The main points of feed adjustment at each stage are as follows:



1. Chicks: Farmers generally call 0-6 weeks old laying hens the brooding period. The obtained feed nutrients are mainly used for the rapid growth of muscles and bones. However, the digestive system is not well developed, and the feed intake is small. At the same time, the gizzard has poor ability to grind feed. Therefore, chicks have higher nutritional requirements. Feeds with high energy, high protein, low fiber content are required. And to supplement higher levels of minerals and vitamins. Raw materials such as corn, fish meal and soybean meal can be used when designing the formula.

2. Raised laying hens: 7-18 weeks of age for laying hens is the breeding period. At this stage, the growth and development of chickens are vigorous, and the weight growth rate is relatively stable. Digestive organs mature gradually, and bones grow faster than muscles. The requirements for nutrients such as energy and protein are relatively low. Some raw materials with high crude fiber such as bran, grass meal, etc. can be used to reduce the cost of feed. Late rearing is to limit weight gain. Farmers can choose to use bran, etc. to dilute the nutrient concentration of the feed. Farmers from 18 weeks of age to the start of production can choose calcium raw materials with relatively high concentrations for feeding to speed up the reserve of bone calcium.

3. Laying hens: The laying hens are in the laying period from 19 weeks of age to elimination. In the early stage of laying, the laying hens are generally at the age of 40 weeks after laying eggs or when the laying rate is from 5% to 70%. The requirement of crude protein for chickens increases with the increase of egg production rate. In addition, the formation of egg shells requires a large amount of calcium, so the demand for calcium increases. Nutritional indicators such as methionine, vitamins, and trace elements should also be appropriately increased to ensure adequate supply of nutrients, so as to ensure and prolong the peak laying period of laying hens, give full play to their production performance, and improve economic benefits for farmers. Use corn gluten meal and other fine feed ingredients to avoid affecting feeding.

In the mid-laying period, the laying hens are generally 40-60 weeks old or after the peak period when the laying rate is 80%-90%. The weight of laying hens at this stage generally does not increase. After the peak period, the laying rate of laying hens gradually increases. Decline, so the nutrition for the feed is lower than the peak. However, due to the increase in egg weight, farmers should not reduce the crude protein level in the feed too quickly, and should reduce the protein level slowly.

The late laying period is after 60 weeks of age or the laying rate drops below 70%, and the laying rate during this period continues to decline. Due to the increase of chicken age, the ability to digest and absorb nutrients in the feed decreases, and the quality of eggshells deteriorates. Therefore, farmers should appropriately increase the amount of mineral feed when adjusting the feed, which can improve the calcium level. In the later stage of egg production, with the decline of egg production, the energy requirements of laying hens are correspondingly reduced, and the energy level cannot be increased at will, so as not to make the chicken fatter and affect the production performance.


The above are the main points of feed adjustment for laying hens at different stages in the process of raising chickens and laying hens as described by the automatic chicken raising equipment manufacturers. I hope the above descriptions can help all farmers.

Natural disasters will not only damage poultry farms, but also damage various automated poultry farming equipment. At the same time, it will also lead to the occurrence of epidemics. So today I will explain to you what poultry farmers should do after natural disasters.



  1. Timely maintenance of battery chicken cages and other equipment: After the disaster, farmers should turn off the power, and then ask the staff to repair and maintain the chicken cage, various tools, water pipes, wires and other facilities. Leakage and stagnant water have occurred.
  2. Clean the overwhelming chickens in time: Individual chickens will inevitably die due to the impact of the disaster. Farmers should clean up dead chickens in time and carry out all-round disinfection.
  3. Contaminated drinking fountains, sinks, food troughs, etc., need to be cleaned and disinfected before use. Be careful not to use contaminated well water or natural river water when drinking water. Precipitation treatment, then disinfect with bleaching powder, Baidusha and other disinfectants, or directly boil for disinfection.
  4. Pay attention to feed safety: Affected by the disaster, the feed in the factory warehouse may have been contaminated. Farmers should pay attention to whether the feed has mildew. Moldy feed cannot be fed to chickens. It can also be fed in small amounts after detoxification of moldy feed. Common detoxification methods include blowing in the wind, drying in the sun, and adding a mildewcide after the sun.
  5. Scientific prevention and control of epidemic diseases: Many diseases may occur after the disaster. At this time, farmers must pay attention to disease prevention, immunization, regular disinfection, preventive management, etc. Farmers should carry out their work according to the actual situation and strengthen the monitoring of chicken flocks after the disaster.


The above is what the chicken cage manufacturers can share for the farmers. I hope that the farmers can learn useful knowledge of poultry farming.

Poultry cage system is an auxiliary chicken breeding equipment that has appeared in the chicken industry in recent years. There are many types of fully automatic chicken breeding equipment. Different equipment can help farmers complete different chicken breeding. It is very convenient, fast and efficient, and is loved by many farmers. So, how to use fully automatic chicken raising equipment to raise chickens scientifically, let's take a look at it.


  1. Choose theautomatic poultry farming equipment that suits you: Among the current chicken raising equipment, the types of automatic chicken raising equipment are automatic feeder, automatic manure cleaning machine,automatic egg picker, fan wet curtain, automatic drinking water equipment, etc. Commonly used fully automatic chicken breeding equipment, farmers are their actual needs.


  1. Learn to operate fully automatic chicken breeding equipment: fully automatic chicken breeding equipment is a relatively large-scale mechanized equipment that requires professional operation and maintenance. Whether the farmers operate by themselves or let the staff operate, they must learn the correct operation method


  1. Maintain the environment of the chicken house: The hygiene of the chicken house is maintained well, and the chicken flock can reduce the occurrence of diseases. The chicken house has chicken flocks and fully automatic chicken raising equipment, so there are more dirt and harmful gases such as manure, feed, dust, ammonia, etc., which seriously affect the health of the chicken flock. Therefore, in order to ensure the sanitary environment of the chicken house, it must be cleaned.



Fourth, do a good job of immunization: infectious diseases have serious health hazards to chickens. The disease of chickens may be transmitted to the chickens in the entire chicken house, and the loss is huge. At present, the effective way to prevent infectious diseases is to immunize the chickens and raise them. Households do not do immunization during the process of raising chickens.

The above four points are for the majority of farmers, the main points of how to use fully automatic chicken raising equipment to raise chickens scientifically, and they are also several tasks that farmers should pay attention to in the process of raising chickens. In order to help the majority of farmers, the above description hopes to raise chickens scientifically and rationally to improve economic benefits.

The conspicuous automatic chicken raising equipment in the chicken house is the chicken cage, so do you know the classification of the automatic poultry equipment of poultry battery cages? Let us take a look together.



  1. poultry layer cages:

The layer cages of fully automatic poultry equipment are divided into stacked layer cages and battery layer cages. The layer cage net equipment of automatic chicken breeding equipment uses hot-dip galvanizing technology, which is corrosion-resistant, aging-resistant and has a long service life. 15-20 years. , The surface of the steel wire is smooth, which can effectively prevent the foot damage of the chickens and improve the survival rate of the chickens. It is also easy to assemble, easy to raise and easy to manage. Feeding, drinking water, manure removal, and environment are fully automated control, which greatly reduces the labor intensity of workers and saves labor costs. It is now a popular choice for farmers.


  1. Fully automatic chicken raising equipment broiler cage:

High degree of automation: automatic feeding, drinking water, manure removal, wet curtain cooling, centralized management, automatic control, energy saving, improved labor productivity, reduced artificial feeding costs, greatly improved breeding efficiency of farmers, good epidemic prevention of chickens, and effective Prevention of infectious diseases: The chicken does not touch the feces, which can make the chicken grow healthier and provide a clean and comfortable growth environment for the chicken. The meat production time is greatly advanced, the space is saved, and the stocking density is increased: the cage density is higher than the horizontal density 3 More than double, save breeding feed: caged chickens can save a lot of breeding feed, chickens are kept in cages, the amount of exercise is reduced, the energy consumption is less, and the waste of materials is reduced. Data shows that cage breeding can effectively save breeding costs by more than 25%, and it is durable: the complete set of caged broiler equipment uses hot-dip galvanizing technology, which is corrosion-resistant and aging-resistant, and its service life can be as long as 15-20 years.


  1. Fully automatic brooding cage for chicken breeding equipment:

The brooding cages of automatic chicken raising equipment adopts galvanized low-carbon steel wire, which has strong tensile and compressive resistance, which is convenient for observing the growth of the chicks, and is convenient for grouping and selection. The automatic timing cleaning can effectively reduce the diseases of the chicks. Infection rate and mortality rate, the feed trough is equipped with a regulating board, which can effectively meet the feeding of chicks at different growth stages, there is sufficient feeding, the eating position, the uniformity and health of the chickens are good, and the feeding of the chicks per unit area is increased. After 50%-100%, the pressure regulator can adjust the water pressure to the level, and the water supply of each nipple drinker is even to ensure sufficient water supply for the chicks.


Modern poultry farms have been recognized by the majority of farmers, and poultry farming equipment has entered the modern farms.

The most inseparable part of a modern farm is the battery chicken cages. The chickens can be raised together, the utilization rate of the chicken house can be improved, the number of chickens raised, and finally the farmers can obtain good economic benefits.

In addition, farmers can also choose some auxiliary equipment such as poultry feeding equipment, poultry water supply equipment, poultry manure removal equipment, poultry egg collection equipment, poultry ventilation equipment and so on. Farmers can make reasonable purchases of these according to their own scale and requirements for poultry farms.



If modern poultry farms have manure removal equipment, there is no need to worry about the accumulation of chicken manure affecting the health of the flock. The use of poultry manure removal equipment can realize automatic cleaning of manure, and it can be cleaned very clean and hygienic, and farmers do not need to hire personnel to clean chicken manure. Farmers are very worry-free and effortless.

The above is a brief introduction to the equipment required for a modern farm. I hope it will be helpful to farmers who do not understand poultry cage system.

With the continuous development and progress of poultry farmers, intensive breeding has become a trend. The emergence of various types of poultry equipment has enabled farmers to realize scientific and modern intensive breeding mode, which not only reduces labor costs, but also improves breeding efficiency. So what poultry farming equipment is needed to realize intensive farming?


Poultry cage system. It can be used in laying hens, broilers and chicks. There are two types: stepped and stacked. In order to make full use of poultry houses and increase the number of breeding, now poultry farmers are more willing to choose poultry cages to carry out breeding projects.


Poultry drinking water system. Water is an indispensable substance for every chicken, so no matter what type of chicken farms need drinking water equipment, drinking water equipment is divided into many types, nipple type, cup type, tower type, trough type, etc., from water conservation and Considering the prevention of bacterial contamination, the nipple drinker is an ideal water supply device. Drinking nipples are distributed on both sides of the chicken coop to ensure that each chicken can drink clean water.



Poultry manure removal system. With automated manure removal equipment, farmers no longer have to worry about this troublesome thing. Chicken manure is cleaned on time, the air in the chicken house is fresh, and the chickens will not easily get sick. Therefore, the role of manure removal equipment in the intensive farm is very important.


The poultry egg collection system is a device used to collect eggs. It is suitable for laying hen farms. It replaces the time-consuming and laborious manual egg picking in the past, improves work efficiency, and can be adjusted according to needs to reduce damage. With the egg collector, all the eggs can be collected in one place for the farmers to process, which is convenient and fast, and improves efficiency.


The above seven kinds of equipment are what the editor tells for farmers to realize intensive farming. These types of equipment are relatively common and commonly used. Farmers can make a reasonable choice according to their own chicken scale and actual situation. Laying chicken raising equipment improves the efficiency of raising chickens and increases the benefit of raising chickens.

How to improve the survival rate of chickens

Nowadays, farmers are using poultry farming equipment to raise chickens. So how to use breeding equipment to raise chickens to improve the survival rate of chickens?

First, do a good job of drug prevention. Increasing the survival rate of the flock is to reduce the prevalence of the flock. After all, chickens are kept in cages. Therefore, prevention work in all aspects is very important. Drug prevention is critical.


Create a comfortable growth temperature. The farmers are in the process of raising. The temperature of the controlled house is very important for the growth and survival rate of the flock. Especially the management of chicken house temperature. When the environmental temperature changes, it will cause the chicken's metabolism disorder and the suppression of immunity when it exceeds a certain range of the automatic egg picker. even death. Therefore, controlling the temperature is very important to the growth and survival rate of the flock. Farmers should pay attention to the reasonable control of the temperature required for the laying and broiler chickens and different growth stages.




Immunization of chicken farms must be done. Prepare feed according to nutritional standards. As long as the chickens meet the standard feed nutrition, the normal growth and survival rate of the chickens can be guaranteed. Therefore, farmers should choose a reasonable conveyor belt manure cleaner feed composition according to the nutritional requirements of the different stages of the laying and broiler chickens. And pay attention to the quality of feed. Feed raw materials must be fresh and mildew-free. Pay attention to the storage of feed.

Do a good job of ventilation in the chicken house. Harmful gases such as ammonia and carbon dioxide in the chicken house will seriously affect the health of the chickens. Reduce the survival rate of chickens, reasonable and effective ventilation can remove harmful gases from the chicken house. It can also provide fresh air for the chicken coop. Therefore, the ventilation of the chicken house is very important. Especially in winter, farmers should not just think about heat preservation, they should not only do a good job of cold and heat preservation, but also pay attention to ventilation.
