The reason why the battery cage system is prone to bending

The battery cage system with reasonable structure and high quality has a service life of more than 15-20 years, and can provide a relatively comfortable living environment for the chickens to ensure the normal production potential of the chickens.

Poorly structured and poor-quality chicken cages will either deform and crack solder joints as soon as the chickens are put into the cage, or they will continue to jam the chickens, or the chickens will be in a state of stress for a long time, and it will be difficult to perform normal production performance. Chicken cages often jam and nest eggs, causing damage to the eggs, accumulating and losing enormously.

It can be seen that the quality of poultry layer cages of automatic chicken raising equipment is directly related to the economic benefits of the chicken industry. Whether it is chicken cage manufacturers, chicken farm technicians, or general individual chicken farmers, they should attach great importance to this. Therefore, it is very important to choose a good quality layer cage.



The production materials of chicken cages require cold drawn steel wires. Inferior steel quality is generally manifested as low steel wire hardness and poor elasticity, which reduces the overall strength of the chicken cage and is easy to deform. For the finished product that has been welded, the quality of the steel wire can be identified from the following aspects: 

High-quality steel wire has high hardness and strong elasticity. Use your fingers to pinch the two adjacent steel wires on the layer chicken cages plate where the distance between the welding points is large. You should clearly feel the elasticity of the steel wire. When the force is moderate, the slight bending caused by the pinching can basically reset itself. , The steel base wood will not be deformed if you use light force. If the steel has a low hardness and poor elasticity, it will produce irreversible deformation if the adjacent steel wires are pinched with a slight force by hand. If the steel wire is severely bent without resetting with moderate force, the steel wire feels almost inelastic, so pick up the cage to make it When it fell on the concrete floor, the voice was short and muffled.

The cage plate made of high-quality steel wire has a loud and high sound on the ground, and the reverberation is long. The steel wire with extremely poor hardness will produce small wavy bends when straightening, which is very obvious from the eye view, and the high-quality chicken cage steel wire will never appear such bends. The chicken cages welded with low-hardness steel wires, even if the solder joints are firm, the chickens will be overwhelmed and bend down severely after being basketed, which can cause water and troughs to deform or break, which is not only inconvenient for management, but even make it difficult for chickens to eat and drink.


How to do a good job of guaranteeing large-scale chicken farming?

In recent years, the rise of large-scale layer farms, battery layer cages have also become the most important equipment in the market. For manufacturers who need to breed layer hens, purchasing chicken cage products has become a key task.

In today's layer cage market, automatic chicken cages products are very popular. Therefore, there are many manufacturers producing this chicken cage product. With the increasing pressure from peer competition, poultry equipment manufacturers also need to do a good job in guaranteeing the quality and performance of chicken cage products. The following article briefly introduces that the high-quality performance of the chicken cage is related to these factors.

The high-quality performance of the chicken coop is related to these factors. The chicken cage should be processed by a new type of hot-dip galvanizing process. The cage made by the hot-dip galvanizing process is completely galvanized, is not prone to corrosion and rust, and can be used for up to 20 years.



Poultry farmers should pay attention when buying poultry chicken cages, pay attention to the tilt angle of the bottom of the layer cage, generally 5-8° is appropriate. Eggs can roll out from inside. In this way, the hen will not peck the eggs and increase the breakage rate of the eggs, but also make it easier for the farmers to collect the eggs.

The choice of chicken cage should be based on the number of poultry in the poultry farm. As a high-quality chicken cage, its size design should be consistent with the number of chickens raised by the farmer, even if the material or other aspects have no shortcomings, if the size is required by the farmer The size does not match, and it can’t give play to the advantages of breeding, so this also warns farmers to choose a suitable cage based on their actual breeding volume when purchasing cages.

The above are the important factors that poultry equipment manufacturers should pay attention to when purchasing chicken cages recommended by farmers. The poultry chicken cage equipment manufacturers who have their own factories know that this matter is simple.


The poultry cage feeding management skills of chicken cage manufacturers

Chicken cage manufacturers have many skills in raising chickens. The most difficult process for the chicks in the growth of the flock requires the care of the farmers. The following points are summarized about the management skills of the cage feeding of the chicks:

①Start feeding; feeding the newborn chicks for the first time is commonly known as "start feeding". It is necessary to grasp the time for the chicks to start feeding. It is best to start feeding 12-24 hours after hatching, and it is best not to exceed 36 hours after long-distance transportation. Too early, the chicks have no appetite, and affect the absorption of egg yolk; too late, the chicks will consume too much energy, lose water and become weak, and also affect their future growth and survival. When the chicks can stand and move after their feathers are dry, 60%-70% of the chicks should start eating when they are looking for a peck. 

The starter feed requires freshness, with a moderate particle size of 1.5-2.0 mm, which is convenient for chicks to peck, and is nutritious and easy to digest. Farmers often use broken corn, broken rice, broken wheat, millet, etc. Large-scale chickens often use chicken mix to mix wet or directly feed dry powder.



② Feed combination; brooding feed should be a full price compound feed, which can meet the needs of protein, energy, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients during the growth and development of chicks. The feed for chicks can be prepared according to the feeding standards, combined with the status of the young group and the source and type of local feed. From the 4th day of brooding, an additional 1% of gravel can be added to the diet, especially for online brooding and cage brooding, and more attention should be paid to the replenishment of gravel.

③Feeding method: For the first three days of feeding, you can spread the feed directly on the opening tray or sterilized kraft paper or dark-colored plastic cloth to induce it to eat. Some chicks do not know how to eat when they are fed for the first time. Artificial lures should be used to make the chicks learn to eat. After 2-3 training sessions, the chicks can learn to eat. Cage brooding chicks are inconvenient to train, as long as the drinking water and starter feed are placed in a more conspicuous place that is easy to peck. After 4-7 days, you should gradually transition to the use of troughs or barrels for feeding. Generally speaking, 1-3 weeks old use young chicks troughs, 3-6 weeks old use medium-sized troughs, and after 6 weeks old, use large-sized troughs.

It is very convenient to use poultry cages in chicken farm to feed the chicks.


How to realize modern and intensive poultry farming?

At present, the use of automatic poultry farming equipment is the main way to realize modern and intensive poultry farming. Can have a suitable living environment for poultry and help poultry production.



  1. Compared with the battery cage system, it occupies a small area and has a large number of floors, generally four floors, up to 10 floors. battery layer cages can obtain more breeding area, increase the laying rate of layer hens, and have higher benefits. It is convenient for maintenance and repair, and the cage system can be controlled according to the prompt steps.
  2. The ventilation effect is better to ensure that the laying hens in the cage system will not suffocate due to high temperature. Cooperate with the manure removal belt to ensure the cleanliness of the cage system, reduce the breeding of germs, and reduce the disease rate and mortality of laying hens.
  3. layer egg collection system can reduce the breakage rate of eggs. The use of an automated egg collection system can reduce the breakage rate to three thousandths. Therefore, the egg collection equipment is very suitable for large-scale poultry farms.
  4. The automatic drinking water system can ensure equal water pressure and ensure the drinking water for the laying hens. The design of the elongated trough edge reduces the waste of feed and improves the effective conversion rate of feed.
  5. The planning of the cage door of the chicken battery cagesis also very important. Layer cage doors generally adopt a horizontal sliding door structure. It is easy to open, and there is no case of running chickens, and to prevent the feed from spilling out when eating. If there are chickens who want to raise their heads to shovel, there will be a steel fence around the chicken's neck, so the chickens can't raise their heads to shovel. Experiments have proved that battery layer cages can save more than 3% of feed.

Poultry battery chicken cages which will cause chickens to produce stress response

In the daily management of chickens using poultry battery chicken cages, if the poultry farmers do not pay attention to some aspects, it may cause a stress response in the flock. This is mainly due to management misunderstandings in these areas.



  1. Drinking water and feed: Insufficient drinking water for chickens or unbalanced feed nutrition, and unreliable quality is the cause of stress.
  2. Feeding density: The density of caged chickens is much higher than that of flat rearing. Farmers should add them according to the standard stocking density requirements. If you increase the number and density at will, there will be a probability of stress. Will be larger, and the greater the density, the greater the impact on chicken productivity.
  3. Beak cutting work: Beak cutting work must be done at the chick stage, but beak cutting is a serious pressure for the chicks, so this requires the breeder to be skilled, fast and as much as possible when cutting the beak. It was done at a young age. In addition, farmers should pay attention that some people will be immunized and beak cut at the same time to reduce stress. This is undesirable because it will increase the level of stress.
  4. Chicks transportation: After buying the chicks, the farmers are also prone to pressure during the process of transporting the chicks to the broiler house. The transportation, movement and long-distance transportation of chicks consume their physical strength and moisture. This is a serious pressure.
  5. Vaccination: Vaccination is an important means of preventing infectious diseases and is indispensable, but no matter which method of vaccination is used, it is a kind of pressure.
  6. Disease stress: If chickens are chronically or subtly infected with certain bacteria, viruses or internal and external parasitic diseases during the breeding process, this is due to the relative balance between the body and these pathogens, and it becomes a chronic or subclinical asymptomatic infection.


The above are some of the misunderstandings in the breeding management that caused the pressure of the flocks in the process of caged chickens shared by the poultry equipment manufacturers.


Issues that cannot be ignored in the layer cages in poultry farming equipment

The use of poultry layer cage systems is already the most common breeding mode. However, one point that is easy to overlook when using layer cages for breeding is to clean the water line. It is known that the quality of water is the key point in the poultry farm. Coupled with the high breeding density of poultry layer cages, it can be said that the quality of the water is directly related to the quality of the chickens.

Therefore, in the process of breeding, the water line of chicken drinking water needs to be cleaned frequently by us in order to provide the chicken with a sanitary drinking water. Let's talk about the importance of cleaning the waterline frequently:


First of all, cleaning the water line during poultry breeding can ensure the cleanliness of the integrated poultry drinking system. If the waterline is not cleaned for a long time, a lot of dirt, drug residues, algae and other substances will often accumulate in the water pipeline, drinking fountain, and water tank. The waterline is full of mucus, which breeds microorganisms and bacteria, which seriously affects the health of the chickens. Therefore, regular cleaning of the water line can keep the water quality clean, so as to ensure that the chickens can drink clean drinking water every day and reduce the occurrence of chicken diseases.

The second is to clean up the waterline regularly. This will prevent the residue from clogging the drinking nipples. Especially for farmers in tropical areas, lack of drinking water can cause stress responses in chickens. Therefore, it is necessary to clean the water line regularly to ensure the feed and water consumption of the chickens to ensure the health of the chickens and improve the uniformity of the chickens.



Finally, if the water line is not cleaned for a long time, when drinking water is immunized, the drug residues, algae and dirt in the water line will seriously affect the vaccine effect, resulting in immune failure or greatly reduced immune effect.

The above is the importance of using the layer cage system to clean the water line shared by the poultry equipment manufacturers. Farmers must pay attention to the cleaning of the water line.


What should I pay attention to when raising broilers in winter?

In winter, the temperature is very cold, and the temperature required by the automated chicken cage equipment is very different from the outside temperature. Ventilation and heat preservation must be done well. When ventilating, be careful not to fluctuate the temperature in the warehouse. In order to prevent stress and disease caused by excessive temperature difference, the vent should be 1.5 meters higher than the back of the chicken. When the working temperature drops sharply, the insulation work cannot keep up, which often causes the broilers to feel cold, cough, sneeze, and have difficulty breathing. Therefore, breeders must do a good job in temperature changes, cold protection, and heat preservation to prevent thieves and draughts from attacking the chickens.


In winter, the temperature is very cold. In addition to heat preservation work, it is necessary to promptly remove the flocks of excrement and wet litter. If it is not cleaned up in time, it will cause the accumulation of ammonia in the chicken house and increase its concentration, which may cause ammonia poisoning or cause broiler diseases. Moreover, due to the accumulation of ammonia and the relative lack of oxygen, coupled with severe cold weather, chickens have a fast metabolism, and broilers that grow too fast are prone to ascites. Therefore, farmers should lay more than 5 cm of litter to prevent the sink from leaking and wetting the litter. If the humidity is too high, remove the feces and wet litter in time, or use ammonia-absorbent deodorant to reduce the ammonia concentration in the chicken house.


According to different growth stages of broilers, diets should be configured according to feeding standards. Due to the lower temperature in winter, the broilers consume more calories, and the humidity of the medicine improves the metabolizable energy standard of the feed. At the same time, the proportion of protein is appropriately reduced to meet the demand for vitamins. Feed should be prepared immediately to prevent freezing. If possible, feed after heating. The configured feed must be free of mildew and impurities to prevent respiratory diseases.


In the breeding process, regular disinfection is required to prevent the spread of diseases, and insist on disinfection with chickens to eliminate rodents. After sick chickens are sick, they should be isolated from healthy chickens for treatment, and dead chickens should be buried deeply. Try to reduce the necessary stress factors in the breeding process, take all feasible means to feed the chickens, ensure the body's energy needs, and enhance the chicken's disease resistance.


Why do novices dare to start poultry farming with the poultry cage system?

The current breeding method has changed a lot from before. The emergence and prevalence of poultry cage systems have made poultry farming easy and happy, and many novice farmers are also willing to carry out breeding projects. 

Modern poultry farming equipment has basically realized automatic operation. Farmers no longer have to work on the chicken coop every day.

The most commonly used poultry farming equipment include the layer cages for sale, battery broiler cages, poultry brooding cages of poultry cage system, and automatic feeding equipment, automatic egg collection equipment, automatic manure removal equipment, automatic water supply equipment, automatic ventilation equipment, etc. With their mutual cooperation, intensive farming can be realized.



Modern poultry farming equipment is mechanized equipment. It is necessary to understand how to operate it before using it, so that good results can be obtained. Therefore, when buy poultry equipment, you must ask the manufacturer clearly and learn how to operate the equipment.

When carrying out breeding, we must pay attention to the breeding density. Breeders must remember not to expand the breeding density at will. Failure to follow the standard density will cause unbalanced growth of chickens. Therefore, in the process of raising chickens, farmers must not covet the number of breeding and ignore the appropriate density.

The above is the use of poultry equipment to carry out breeding projects for everyone to share, even if you are a novice, you don't need to worry.


How to choose poultry cages

Poultry cages are now the most common method of poultry farming. Because the poultry cage system not only provides a suitable environment for the chickens, but also allows the chickens to play a better role in the breeding process.


How to choose poultry layer cages

  1. Since automaticchicken raising is more popular nowadays, when choosing the size of the layer cage, you should consider whether you need to install automatic chicken farming equipment to assist in raising chickens. If necessary, the size of the layer cage should be based on the automation equipment. The area to choose from.


  1. Although there are many sizes of layer cages, the area of each farmer’s chicken house is also diverse. The reason for the many sizes of layer cages is to facilitate the different sizes of chicken houses for each farmer. Let farmers choose the size of their own chicken coop, so farmers should choose according to the size of their chicken coop when buying layer cages. If you don’t know how to determine the required size, you can consult before buying The manufacturer’s technicians will recommend a suitable layer cage size according to the area of the chicken house.


  1. The number of layers that can be raised in different layer cage sizes is different. Therefore, when choosing the size, you should choose according to the number of layers to be raised. You can consult the manufacturer to determine the specific size and ability of the layer cage. quantity.


  1. If the size of the general layer cage cannot meet the size of the chicken house or the area ofthe chicken house is very different from the size of the general chicken house, the farmer can consult the technician who sells the layer cage for maternity leave. Some manufacturers can follow According to the needs of farmers, services such as design transformation or independent upgrade of equipment.



Problems to pay attention to when buy poultry layer battery cages


   1. When choosing equipment vendors, farmers should choose direct-sale manufacturers, because some agents often increase the price of equipment in order to make money, which will increase the cost for ordinary farmers. If you choose a direct selling manufacturer, there will be no intermediate price difference, and the price will be more advantageous. Moreover, if there is a problem with the equipment during the breeding period, you can directly contact the manufacturer, which is simple, convenient and fast.


  1. The angle at the bottom of the chicken cage must be accurate. If the angle is too small, the egg cannot be rolled out in time, and it may be trampled by the chicken. If the angle is too large, the egg will easily fall to the ground and be broken, or the egg rolling has a strong momentum. As a result, they will crash into each other. Generally, the slope of the bottom of the cage should be kept at 7 to 8 degrees. If farmers buy cheap chicken cages with unreasonable design, the egg breakage rate will increase. Although the cost of equipment is saved, the benefits are also reduced.


  1. At present, there are two kinds of cold galvanizing and hot-dip galvanizing layer cages on the market. The price of hot-dip galvanizing is a little higher because its service life is longer than that of cold galvanizing. When laying hens, consider the number of years of raising chickens. If the breeding time is longer, choose hot-dip galvanized layer cages. If the breeding time is not long, choose cold-galvanized layer cages with lower prices.


  1. Pay attention to the quality while comparing prices. Whether the cheap equipment is qualified in terms of quality. If you buy cheap equipment with poor quality, you need to maintain it frequently, increasing the cost of the equipment, and if the equipment is damaged, it will need to be repaired. It will adversely affect the growth and production of laying hens, and serious stress may occur.

The entire detailed process of poultry breeding chicken cage cleaning

Poultry breeding chicken cage washing procedure: The general cleaning procedure is: first outside and then inside, first general and then overall, first up and down, the principle of chicken cage from front to back.



1. Remove the chicken cage material line and water line equipment to the operation room.

2. Stay in the pipeline for at least 12H, and then rinse with clean water.

3. Clean the chicken manure and feathers around the chicken coop to improve environmental sanitation. There is no debris around the chicken house, and the items outside the house are neatly stacked.

4. Remove the roof and clean the dust and dirt on the scaffolding, roof beams and appliances.

5. The chicken manure on the floor and the floor of the chicken cage, and the entire chicken house should be cleaned. There is no chicken manure, chicken feathers, or dust in the house, so as not to block the sewer pipe during washing.

6. Clean the sewer pipes, drains, and sewage tanks to achieve drainage.

7. Before cleaning the chicken coop, cut off the main power supply in the house, and connect the washing machine and lighting power supply from the house, and connect the leakage protection switch to avoid electric shock accidents.

8. Clean the power distribution cabinet and power distribution box with a blower.

9. Before washing the chicken coop, spray the surface of the appliance with detergent through a low-pressure spray gun, and keep it in a wet or foamy state for more than 20 minutes. If a high-pressure spray gun is used at this time, droplets containing microorganisms will be generated, which will pollute the environment and people.

10. Then use a high-pressure spray gun to clean the contents of the chicken house from front to back. This is a prerequisite for the chicken coop.

11. When rinsing, use steel wire brushes to clean items such as cots, walls, etc. that are cleaned; clean up the dirt in the material bag in the shrinkage joint.

Regardless of whether it is a layer cage or a broiler cage before being cleaned and washed, employees can use insecticide fumigation for a period of time. In this way, arthropods and pests that are flying and lurking in crevices can be eliminated.


How to prevent diseases in layer cage breeding

Now layer cages are one of the most commonly used poultry farming equipment for chicken farmers. Chickens live in chicken cages, making it easier for farmers to manage. However, it is also necessary to prevent chickens from getting sick, to ensure that the quality of sanitation work meets the standards, to pay attention to the situation of the chickens in real time and to effectively grasp the health of the chickens.

When constructing chicken house, farmers first choose a place with a sunny, flat terrain, high dryness, convenient water access, far away from the village, and convenient transportation. The chicken house must be built in a place with high terrain, convenient drainage, and good ventilation; the inside of the house should be a concrete floor to facilitate cleaning and disinfection, and a sandy playground should be set outside the door.



The second is to ensure that the chicken house is ventilated and has a suitable temperature. Observe the condition of the flock. If they are evenly distributed, move freely, and are relatively quiet, the temperature of the chicken house is just right.

The third point is to formulate scientific immunization procedures. To ensure the healthy life of laying hens, when purchasing vaccines, you must choose those produced by regular large-scale manufacturers. The amount of vaccine should be sufficient, the immunization program should be reasonable, and the immunization method should be correct. In the early stage, immunization by nasal drops, eye drops or mouth drops should be promoted, and injections should be adopted in the later stage.

To sum up, the above are the specific measures for disease prevention in layer cages shared by poultry cage system manufacturers for farmers. Hope there is a place that can help farmers.


Automatic maintenance work of poultry farming equipment

The daily maintenance and maintenance of automatic poultry farming equipment is the basic work of farmers. The maintenance of equipment should be done daily to ensure the institutionalization and standardization of equipment maintenance. Here is a brief introduction to how to maintain and maintain poultry equipment.

In daily maintenance, farmers must pay attention to wiping the inside and outside of the battery chicken cages, and treat the parts such as the chicken cage door, screw, rack, and wheel box without oil pollution. In addition, some debris and dirt around the equipment should be cleaned up. This will not only ensure that the chicken growing environment is beneficial, but also extend the life of the equipment.



Second, because poultry farming equipment is basically in operation for a long time, it is necessary to ensure that the lubrication work between the equipment must be done well. Farmers should pay attention to whether the engine should be oiled and changed. Do not let the equipment make a rubbing noise. Pay attention to the condition of the oil tank to ensure that the oil pressure is normal and the oil path is unblocked.

The most important point is that the farmers must follow the relevant safety operating procedures in the daily use process, do not overload the equipment, ensure that the safety protection measures are complete and reliable, and promptly eliminate unsafe factors when problems are found.

The above is the daily maintenance of automatic poultry farming equipment shared for farmers, I hope everyone can learn.
