How to avoid wet automatic chicken cages in winter?

In winter, automatic chicken cages are prone to damp conditions. Excessive humidity in the chicken house will cause the feces to decompose more harmful gases. Then it causes respiratory diseases in the flocks, which endangers the health of the chickens. Therefore, it is very necessary to protect the chicken coop from moisture in winter.

Pay attention to ventilation of the chicken house. In order to ensure the temperature of the chicken house, some farmers do not ventilate the chicken house. This is undesirable. Failure to ventilate the air will result in reduced oxygen in the chicken house, which is not conducive to chicken growth. The contradiction between farmers and the need to adjust ventilation and heat preservation.

Don't increase the stocking density excessively. In winter, the temperature is low, and most farmers will increase the stocking density to keep the chickens warm. This has disadvantages, because too high a stocking density will cause crowded chickens, which is even more detrimental to preventing moisture.

Pay attention to prevent water leakage from drinking utensils. Strictly prevent leakage of drinking utensils. Once found, seal treatment or replacement should be done in time, and the leak should be cleaned up in time.

Ensure the temperature of the chicken house. In winter, the main job of the chicken coop is to keep warm. According to the survey, the temperature of the chicken house should not be lower than 12 degrees Celsius. This is the most suitable temperature for the chicken house in winter. If the humidity is too high, you can install heating equipment in the chicken coop or use modern chicken breeding equipment.
