What problems should be paid attention to when using fully automatic chicken breeding equipment to raise chickens?

Nowadays, automatic chicken raising equipment is emerging in endlessly, and many farmers will rely on some automatic chicken raising equipment to raise laying hens in order to improve work efficiency. Although the technology and methods of raising chickens have been improved, some farmers still cannot get good economic benefits. In order to help the majority of farmers improve their scientific management level and achieve better economic benefits, farmers need to pay attention to the standardized procedures of chicken raising in the use of fully automatic chicken raising equipment.





1. At present, the automatic disinfection of chicken breeding equipment is an effective way to ensure the hygiene of the chicken house. Correct and reasonable disinfection can kill pathogenic microorganisms in the chicken house in time. Many farmers do not pay attention to disinfection or the disinfection system is not perfect, and does not follow conventional operating procedures, resulting in poor disinfection effect and poor sanitary conditions in chicken houses.


2. Immunization is a very effective way to prevent infectious diseases in chickens, but many farmers are very irregular in vaccination operations or do not know the correct vaccination method. Therefore, the chicken vaccination failed, which not only increased the breeding cost of farmers, but also failed to achieve good economic benefits.


3. Generally, many farmers lack scientific and rigorous awareness of epidemic prevention when they are in chicken coop farms. When someone returns to the chicken coop, they do not pay attention to ultraviolet disinfection, and enter the chicken coop without changing their disinfected clothes and shoes. This is likely to cause disease transmission media.


4. In the four seasons of the year, seasonal weather changes are great. Farmers should take preventive measures against weather changes. However, many farmers did not take preventive measures when encountering sudden weather changes or other stress factors, which led to the outbreak of chickens. If the weather becomes cold, warm-keeping measures should be taken to prevent air-conditioning from entering; if the weather is very hot, cooling measures should be taken to ventilate the environment.


5. Nowadays, there are many kinds of feeds on the market. Pay attention to the price of feeds when buying, and don't change the feeds at will. Changing the feed will generally reduce the diet of the laying hens, and the egg production will be greatly reduced; broilers generally do not grow long, and the entire group will be seriously ill.


The above are a few issues that farmers need to pay attention to in the use of the fully automatic chicken raising equipment. I hope that the above summary can bring some help to the farmers.


The development status of chicken breeding equipment

In recent years, Nigeria’s poultry farming industry has grown by leaps and bounds, and more and more people have chosen the farming industry. The emergence of poultry raising equipment has made the process of raising chickens more and more easier for farmers. If farmers want to get good economic benefits, the use of automated poultry breeding equipment is indispensable. Next, the author introduces the development trend of the poultry breeding industry.

1. Ring maintenance of chickens is the trend. Various industries are now advocating environmental protection, and the chicken industry is no exception. Many pig farms and chicken farms are now rectifying the environment of their own farms, saving energy and reducing emissions, and reducing environmental pollution related to chicken farming is the current development trend of the chicken industry. In the past, the manure and water flowed everywhere in the chicken farm, flies were flying everywhere, and the smell around the chicken farm was unpleasant. If it is not rectified, it will inevitably affect the external air environment and affect people's healthy life. Therefore, environmental maintenance of chickens is a must.

2. Professional management is the trend. With the increasing scale of the chicken industry and the professional equipment, the management skills of the chicken farm must be constantly updated and upgraded. Only professional people can succeed in doing professional things. No breeder can raise chickens, understand water and electricity, manage people and see a doctor. Therefore, it is the trend to entrust every job to professional people, collaboration and mutual benefit, and mutual benefit.

3. Large-scale and intensive breeding are the trends. Large-scale and intensive chicken farming is now the chicken farming method vigorously promoted by the chicken industry. Many breeders have now completed large-scale chicken farming. Some free-range farmers are small in scale, with outdated broiler feeding equipment and chicken raising skills, and are now unable to adapt to the development of the chicken industry, and the benefits are minimal or even at a loss. Therefore, small breeders must change the current breeding situation before they can win in the chicken industry.

4. Green drug-free residual chicken is imperative. As people's living standards continue to improve, there are higher requirements for food. More and more people pay attention to food safety, so how to produce green and safe chicken products is a job that farmers need to consider now, which is related to the economic benefits of the farmers and people's health.

The above are several reference directions for the development of poultry breeding industry. At present, with the scale and standardization of the aquaculture industry, more and more traditional farms have been eliminated from the market, leaving only farms using automated chicken farming machinery. Hope these contents can help farmers.



What are the advantages of automatic feeders compared with traditional feeders?

Now many chicken farmers are gradually feeling that traditional chicken raising equipment cannot meet their needs, and are gradually moving from traditional to automatic chicken feeding machines, which greatly saves chicken manpower and time costs. At present, there are many automatic feeding machine prices on the market. It is also relatively favorable, and is favored by chicken farmers. Now let's introduce the advantages of automatic feeders in detail.




1. High degree of automation

The automatic feeding machine of chicken raising equipment adopts the latest material level sensing system, PLC programming control, and high degree of automation. It can realize automatic control of feeding, just simple inspection after setting.


2. Regular and quantitative feeding

The automatic feeding machine of the chicken raising equipment is divided into 6-8 speed gears, which can be adjusted with the growth and development of the chicken, so that the feeding becomes more reasonable and scientific, and the feeding cost is reduced.


3. Large tray capacity

The feed trays of the automatic feeding machine for chicken raising equipment can be divided into 14-16 grids. Each tray can be calculated according to the 16 grids, which can feed 50-70 chickens at the same time.



How to eliminate foreign gases in the chicken house?

In chicken house where chicken battery cages are used, the breeding density of chickens is higher. Including manure, feed and corrosion of chicken cage equipment, a lot of harmful gases are generated. Some odors with high content can be poisoned by chickens and poultry. To eliminate odors in chicken coops, the drinking water and feed of chickens must be picked up.

According to the physiological characteristics of animals, the feed processing technology such as pellets and puffing are adopted. Not only can effectively improve the utilization of nutrient elements in the feed, but also reduce the possibility of odor from the root cause. Phenol and benzene are produced in the process of animal digestion of feed, and the part that is not digested and absorbed is degraded by microorganisms in vitro, and ammonia gas is produced. The more feces produced, the higher the concentration of ammonia contained in the air in the house.

Experiments have shown that if the digestibility of dietary dry matter is increased from 85% to 90%, the dry matter excreted in feces can be reduced by 2% and the amount of fecal excretion can be reduced by 20%. The foul smell in the feces is produced by protein corruption. If the digestibility of dietary protein is increased or the heat supply of protein is reduced, the production of odor will be greatly reduced.

In terms of feed additives, the work is mainly carried out by adding enzyme preparations, acidulants, probiotics, acidulants, zeolites, etc. Fermentable carbohydrates or microbial flora can also be added to livestock and poultry diets to reduce ammonia volatilization and odor production.

At present, more research focuses on the development of plant-based additives, and more and more plant-based additives are used to deodorize breeding houses. There are even Chinese herbal deodorants made of traditional Chinese medicines such as strengthening the stomach and digesting food, sterilizing and antiseptic, to achieve the purpose of reducing the odor of chicken excrement.

In short, all factors that can increase feed digestibility and improve feed efficiency can reduce the total excretion of feces.

The hygiene of the chicken house is directly related to the health and production performance of the chicken flock. Farmers should attach great importance to them, and adopt comprehensive prevention and control measures from the aspects of breeding management, architectural design of poultry houses, rational arrangement of poultry farming chicken cages, feed, and disease prevention and control.


What are the benefits of using different equipment to raise chickens?

The benefits of using different chicken raising equipment will vary greatly.

To decide whether raising chickens makes money, the first condition is to raise chickens well. To raise chickens well, equipment is critical. Laying hen equipment includes cage racks, drinking water, feeding machines, manure cleaners, egg pickers, temperature control systems, etc. Advanced mechanical equipment can create an ideal living environment for chickens and greatly improve production efficiency.

1. Different equipments have different temperature control systems

The purpose of the temperature control system is to provide a suitable growth environment for the chickens, make the chickens live comfortably, and create better benefits. If the temperature is too low, the energy in the feed the chicken eats will generate heat to maintain body temperature, resulting in unsatisfactory feed-to-egg ratio. If the temperature is too high, chickens need to breathe more and drink more water to dissipate heat, and the chicken's feed intake will decrease, which will also affect the egg production rate and cause the chickens to catch a cold. Some temperature control systems have problems, and it is possible that a building of tens of thousands of chickens will be wiped out. Therefore, when buying poultry farm equipment in Ghana, you need to buy regular manufacturers, and look for manufacturers with quality assurance and better after-sales service.

2. Different equipment has different service life

At present, there are many manufacturers of poultry breeding equipment, and the quality is also uneven. Some poultry farming equipment manufacturers use poor materials for their equipment. The cage nets are cold-galvanized or painted, and they will break after 1-2 years. However, manufacturers of high-quality poultry breeding equipment use hot-dip galvanized cage nets or imported materials, which have been used for more than ten years without problems. In this way, the cost sharing of the equipment has a great impact on the benefit.

3. Different equipment saves different labor

As we all know, with the increasing cost of manpower, farming, a social activity that once required a lot of manpower, has now been replaced by machines and very few people. Now large chicken farms basically use automated chicken breeding equipment. Automated chicken raising can save a lot of manpower, reduce the staff of the chicken farm, and improve the efficiency of feeding.

The most obvious advantage of using automated chicken raising equipment is that it saves farmers' labor costs. By using automated chicken raising equipment, farmers can reduce manual employment. In the past, it might take a dozen people to raise 50,000 chickens, but after using automated equipment, only 1-2 people are needed.



The difference between flat broiler cages and battery broiler cages

As the chicken industry continues to expand, broiler farmers are also increasing. The number of suppliers that produce broiler cages is also increasing, but for stepped broiler cages, suppliers are still in a relatively small number of stages. The reason is that the stepped broiler cages occupies a larger area than the cascaded cages, the development is not mature, and there are fewer application cases. Therefore, in the broiler breeding industry, battery broiler farming cages are still more popular.

Compared with horizontal broiler cages, battery broiler farming cages have the following advantages:

1. Laminated broiler cages are fully hot-dip galvanized, corrosion-resistant, and have a service life of more than 20 years.
2. Q235 material, large flexibility, not easy to bend.
3. High-density breeding saves land, which is about 70% less land than stepwise.
4. Centralized management to save energy and resources. The stacked broiler cage adopts advanced ventilation system, lighting system and automatic control system to fully save energy consumption and improve labor productivity.
5. Save space and increase the stocking density to more than 60 per square meter.
6. The unique cage door design effectively prevents the chickens from shaking their heads and wasting feed when they eat.
7. Laminated broiler cages use conveyor belts to remove manure to dry the chicken manure into granules, reduce environmental pollution, and have a high recycling rate of chicken manure.
8. Ecological and environmentally friendly, it is an ideal breeding equipment for green chickens and environmentally friendly egg products.

With the systematization and centralization of the aquaculture industry, more and more small farmers have begun to use poultry cages system in Uganda to raise chickens. Although it seems that the temporary investment has increased, the income in the later period has also increased a lot.


Precautions for broiler breeding equipment!

Due to the development of broiler genetic breeding technology and the continuous improvement of broiler breeders' feeding technology, broiler breeding has increasingly become an important means for farmers to make a fortune. Broiler farming needs to be simple. For example, plastic greenhouses with small capital investment can be used for broiler farming, so the use of water, electricity and medicine should be reasonable. And all kinds of broiler breeding equipment should pay attention to maintenance to extend its service life, reduce unnecessary waste and reduce the cost of chicken breeding, thereby increasing the economic benefits of broiler breeding.





What should be paid attention to in broiler battery cage system?

1. Density

The density of broiler farming should not be too high, generally according to two-thirds of the actual farming amount.

2. Management

For broilers aged 5-9 days, 12-15 days, and 20-24 days, measures to improve immunity should be taken, and the infection of broiler bursal disease should also be controlled.

3. Expand the group

In the process of raising broilers, attention should be paid to expanding the group in time to ensure the freshness of the air in the chicken house.

4. Temperature

The editor suggests that broiler farmers can take the method of high temperature brooding, because high temperature is conducive to the absorption of the yolk of the young chickens to increase the maternal antibody, and the later
chickens are not prone to illness.

5. Drug addition

Drugs can be added when feeding broilers, which can effectively prevent the occurrence of certain diseases.

6. Light

Since the eyesight of the chicks is weak and the strong light is conducive to the feeding of the chicks, it is necessary to brood the chicks with strong light.


Temperature and humidity control of chicken house for laying hen breeding equipment

(1) Suitable temperature for layer cage system equipment: brooding temperature for egg chicks: 35-33℃ for 1-2 days, 33-32℃ for 3-7 days, and then decrease by about 2 to 3℃ every week, It is about 21-18℃ until 5-6 weeks old. Whether the supplied temperature is appropriate, in addition to observing the thermometer, the behavior of the chicks should also be observed. For example, when the temperature is normal, the chicks are active, have a good appetite, drink moderately, sleep quietly, and have a comfortable sleeping position, mostly lying prone. The chicks are evenly distributed throughout the brooding house; when the temperature is high, the chicks are far away from the heat source and their wings spread out When the temperature is low, the chicks are crowded and close to the heat source, crowded together, trembling, making bursts of cold-phobic noises, and appetite decreases. Chicks are more sensitive to cold and warm, so pay special attention to prevent the temperature from rising and falling, and try your best to keep the temperature balanced. When controlling the temperature, the temperature should be higher at night or in rainy and snowy days; during the day when the chicks are active, the weather should be warmer, and the temperature should be lower; the temperature of weak chicks should be higher, and the temperature of healthy chicks can be lower.





(2) Suitable humidity for layer breeding equipment: Humidity is closely related to the evaporation of water in the chicken body, body heat dissipation and the cleanliness of the chicken house.

① In the high temperature and low humidity, too much water will be lost in the chicken, which will easily cause the chicks to become dehydrated. In addition, due to the dryness, the dust in the house is flying, which can easily induce respiratory diseases.

②At low temperature and high humidity, the house is cold and humid, and the chicks are susceptible to colds, causing wet litter and gastrointestinal diseases and coccidiosis.

③When the temperature is high and humid, the heat in the body of the chicks is not easy to dissipate normally, sulking, decreased appetite, slow growth and weakened resistance. In general,

It is advisable to keep the chicken house dry for chicken layer cage to prevent bacterial reproduction and infection, but the relative humidity should not be lower than 40%. Suitable relative humidity: 60%-65% before 10 days of age, and 50%-60% after 10 days of age. When the humidity is insufficient, water can be sprayed on the corridor, ground, surrounding walls or flue in the house, or a water basin can be put on the heat source to evaporate water vapor to increase the humidity in the house; when the humidity is too high, a moisture-proof layer can be laid on the floor of the chicken house , Properly increase the temperature in the chicken house, strengthen ventilation, change the bedding frequently in the flat chicken house, remove the wet feces and bedding in the house in time, and prevent the drinking fountain from leaking.




How to disinfect large-scale automated chicken farms?

How to effectively prevent disasters such as epidemics in chicken farms is indispensable for disinfection in advance. There are three main disinfection methods for chicken farms: physical methods, chemical methods and biological disinfection methods. Today, I will introduce these three methods of disinfection for automated chicken farms.

One. Physical method

1. Clean up debris, feces and other attached organic matter, dust, remaining feathers, etc. for easy cleaning.


2. The cleaning method is to flush the site and equipment of the chicken house with a high-pressure gun, which can reduce or eliminate pathogenic microorganisms on the chicken house and poultry farming equipment, as well as remove bacteria-carrying organic matter, ensure thorough disinfection, and achieve the purpose of disinfection. Cleaning includes cleaning the ground, supplies (including drinking fountains, troughs), as well as cleaning lighting facilities, egg boxes and other ancillary facilities.


3. Use sunlight and ultraviolet light to irradiate, and use ultraviolet light in a somewhat confined space will have a better sterilization effect. Therefore, light sterilization is of great significance to the disinfection of chicken sites, utensils and objects.

4. High temperature disinfection is used, and the devices or pens or grounds that can be disinfected with high temperature can be treated with incineration.





Two. chemical method
In the process of disease control, chemical disinfectants are used to clean, soak, spray, and fumigate chicken farms and items to achieve the purpose of killing pathogens.

1. Selection requirements for disinfection drugs: choose one with strong disinfection power and long duration; one with wide disinfection effect; strong penetration; easily soluble in water; stable in nature; harmless to humans and chickens; economical and applicable.

2. To ensure the effectiveness of the disinfectant, the following points must be done: remove the dirt; the concentration of the disinfectant must be appropriate; use different disinfectants for different pathogenic microorganisms; choose the appropriate disinfection time, temperature and environmental humidity; PH.

3. Biological disinfection
Biological disinfection is mostly through the accumulation and fermentation of feces, sewage, bedding, etc., or biogas fermentation, so that the pathogenic bacteria in them are killed at high temperatures, and the effect of disinfection and sterilization is achieved.

How to control the environmental temperature of chicken breeding equipment

Today we will bring you how to adjust the temperature of chicken poultry farming equipment, and we hope that through our introduction, you can better understand breeding knowledge.


1. The brooding method of heating equipment flue heating is more suitable for small and medium chicken farms. The flue is built with bricks or adobe. The larger brooding room can use a long flue, and the smaller brooding room can be surrounded by a field-shaped flue. When designing the flue, the diameter of the flue inlet should be larger. The smoke outlet should gradually become smaller to facilitate the circulation of heating and exhaust smoke, and prevent smoke from falling down.


2. Ventilation equipment The airtight chicken house must adopt mechanical ventilation to solve the problems of air exchange and cooling in summer. There are two types of mechanical ventilation: aspiration and exhaust. Aspiration ventilation uses a ventilator to forcibly send fresh air into the house to form a positive pressure in the house and exhaust the dirty air; exhaust ventilation uses a ventilator to The dirty air in the chicken house is forcibly drawn out, so that negative pressure is formed in the house, and the fresh air equipment mainly introduces what enters the chicken house through the air inlet.


3. The water supply equipment can use the hanging tower type automatic drinking fountain. This type of drinking fountain is suspended from the ceiling with a rope through a loop. The top water inlet is connected with the main water pipe by a hose, and the incoming water flows in through a control valve. The drinking water tray is sanitary and water-saving.





4. Fully automatic drinking water equipment breeding equipment. mainly uses troughs. Cage-raised chickens use long troughs. Automated feeding uses feeders and chain feeders for feeding. This feeding method can be used for flat-raised chickens. Feed from the feed bucket. Chicks should use feed trays, and the shape of the trough affects whether the feed can be fully utilized.


5. Lighting equipment currently uses incandescent lamps for lighting. Many chicken farms have installed timers to automatically control the lights on and off instead of manually turning on and off the lights, ensuring the accuracy and reliability of the lighting time. Fluorescent tubes can also be used for lighting, and the tubes are directed toward the ceiling so that the light is reflected from the ceiling to the ground. This scattered light is soft and uniform.


6. The egg laying equipment can be used to raise broiler breeders or flat laying hens using double-layer laying boxes. In addition to flat net rearing, breeding chickens often use overlapping or stepped breeding cages. Laying hens are basically caged. The implementation of cage breeding and caged chickens can make full use of space, increase breeding capacity, good sanitation, easy epidemic prevention, save feed, high egg cleanliness, and convenient management of chickens. Small group breeding cages can be equipped with special curtains at one end of the cage to shade chickens. How to adjust the temperature of the chicken breeding equipment can create a quiet environment for the hens to lay eggs.


Focus on increasing the benefits of chicken farming

Chicken and eggs are becoming the necessities of the masses day by day. The nutritional value of chicken and eggs is very high. If farmers want to obtain high benefits through chicken raising, they must improve the production performance of the chicken flock and improve chicken raising. Benefit, achieve reasonable and scientific breeding methods.




1. The use of Broiler Cage System to breed broilers: Intensive and large-scale breeding models are popular in the chicken industry nowadays. The use of cage-raising is the basis for intensive chicken raising, and the use of cages to raise chickens can also be Farmers increase the number of chickens raised. Chicken cages are a multi-layer breeding mode, so the area of ??the chicken house can be used well, and the chicken cages are easy to manage, which can improve the number and cost of the farmers. Increase the benefit of chicken breeding.


2. Preparing a well-balanced feed: Whether the feed is formulated properly or not will directly affect whether the nutrition in the chicken group can be balanced. Only when the nutrition is balanced can the layer and broiler chickens perform normal growth and production performance. The farmers need according to different chicken groups. Varieties, various nutrients required for different growth stages to prepare a reasonable feed, so that the layer broiler can get a nutritionally balanced feed at each growth stage.


3. Scientific feeding and management: Whether the health and growth and production performance of the chickens can be brought into full play is closely related to the feeding and management of the farmers in all aspects. Therefore, doing a good job in feeding and management is to increase economic benefits for yourself. Laying a foundation, there are many aspects of feeding management: environmental management, feeding work, feed nutrition, disease prevention and regular disinfection work, etc. are all tasks that need to be done by farmers.


4. Do a good job of Fully automatic poultry farming equipment for chicken disinfection and immunization: Disease is a killer that hinders the health of chickens and hinders farmers from obtaining high benefits. Therefore, preventing the occurrence of various diseases has become a work that farmers must do. At present, disease prevention is relatively Good means are frequent disinfection and memory vaccination of chickens. Therefore, these two tasks cannot be ignored by farmers and must be carried out scientifically and reasonably.


5. Reduce the stress of beak cutting and immunity: Beak cutting and immunization are the work that must be done in the process of breeding layer broilers, but these two kinds of work are more irritating to the layer broiler and easily cause the stress response of the layer broiler. The growth and production performance of laying hens and broilers will be affected by nutrition. Therefore, farmers must add antibiotics and vitamins to the feed during beak cutting and vaccination to reduce the effect of stress factors. The time for choosing beak cutting and immunization is also selected After dark or before dawn, do not disturb the chickens to prevent them from exploding.



How to raise chickens in stacked chicken cages

Farmers who use stacked chicken cages to raise chickens also have a lot of worries. Not only do they need to use immunization vaccines in the chickens, but also to maintain the chickens’ time for basketing. However, it is very difficult to change materials when using stacked chicken cages to raise chickens. It is important to ensure that the nutrition of the flock is sufficient and stable, and do not neglect the change of feed.


Under the development of breeding automation, the layer chicken battery cage mode is widely recognized by the majority of layer farms. This breeding method has a small area and high space utilization. The layered cleaning of chicken manure can not only improve the utilization rate of chicken manure, but also It also reduces the degree of environmental pollution. At the same time, it reduces labor intensity and increases productivity. Although stacked cages have many advantages, the premise is to know how to use them and how to manage them. In addition to the conventional power system, a generator that matches the chicken farm must be required and can be automatically switched. Ensure that the light in the house is even, and you can install light bulbs on a staggered level or use row lights.


In order to ensure the service life of the equipment, lubricate the transmission parts such as the transmission sprocket and gears of the transmission box once a month during use. Clean the surface of the egg roller and the fecal roller in time to prevent the accumulation of debris from swelling the fecal belt or breaking the roller shaft. Clean up the impurities in the soft and broken egg collection tray in time. The ventilation system should be appropriately adjusted for side wall ventilation and roof ventilation according to the different seasons. Always keep the lighting bulb clean to prevent affecting the light intensity.




First, if only the driving roller rotates when cleaning manure, the manure conveying belt does not move, it may be stuck in the manure removal belt due to excessive chicken manure. The manure conveying belt should be run regularly and the expansion bolts at both ends of the driving roller should be tightened to remove foreign matter. If the chicken manure on the manure belt is thin, it may be that the drinking fountain is leaking, the connection of the water tank is not sealed well, and the chicken is diarrhea. To replace the drinking fountain, apply sealant to the joint.


Second, if the material cart does not move, it may be that the driving wheel turns, the pull rope does not move, the positioning plate on the driven wheel does not contact the travel switch, the track wheel and the guide rail are squeezed, and the motor is damaged. At this time, it is necessary to rotate the ratchet wheel of the feeder, tighten the rope, adjust the position of the travel switch to make it contact, correct the guide rail to make it parallel, and replace the motor.


Three. If the egg breakage rate is high, it may be due to the chicken pecking the eggs, the egg shell is thin, the claws on the automatic egg collecting machine are broken, the eggs falling from the cage net and the eggs on the egg belt collide, from the automatic egg collecting machine The egg that came out collided with the egg on the central egg line. You can use the electric shock line to change the feed formula, find the broken egg claw and replace it, use the egg blocking line to adjust the height of the egg picker to make it buffer or  customers who raise chickens in Ghana or Nigeria.
