Requirements for ventilation of chicken houses using poultry farming equipment

Most of the farmers' houses are now closed and will be mechanically ventilated using a fan of poultry farming equipment. The ventilation effect of the chicken house directly affects the quality of the chicken house. So, how do you do the ventilation work in the chicken farm during the breeding process? That is to follow the basic requirements of ventilation in the chicken house. The author will introduce the farmers to the basic requirements for ventilation of the house using poultry farming equipment.

1. Airtightness inspection: Mechanized ventilation using a chicken farming equipment fan should pay attention to check the tightness of the house, and the better the house is sealed, the better the ventilation effect of using the fan equipment.

2. Negative pressure management of chicken houses: Farmers should do a good job of negative pressure management of chicken houses, such as: 13-meter-wide chicken house, brooding negative pressure should be 20-25Pa. The negative pressure can be reduced to 10-15 Pa as the chicken age increases. Negative pressure is mainly required in the cold season, and summer is not required to be too high.

3. Management of vents: Farmers should pay attention to the number of fans when selecting fans for raising chicken equipment. It should be reasonably matched with the area of the house. Pay attention to the size and quantity of the fan to avoid excessive negative pressure. The chicken house is deprived of oxygen.

4. The specified amount of ventilation: usually the maximum ventilation in summer. Ventilation per kilogram of body weight per minute: 0.113 cubic meters of chicken and 0.062 cubic meters of broiler chicken. The minimum ventilation is generally 1/1O of the maximum ventilation. In order to prevent respiratory diseases and arthritis and parasitic diseases caused by moisture, ventilation must be carried out frequently. It is best to let 1/10 to 1/3 of the fans run continuously, and other heat sensors automatically control them.

5. Install the air filter unit: If available, install an air filter unit. That is, at all the air inlets, a filter is provided to prevent dust particles in the air from flowing inside the house. If the disinfectant is added to the filter to eliminate the pathogen attached to the mesh, the effect is better. When using the filter, care must be taken not to affect the amount of ventilation. And during regular inspections, the personnel entering the chicken house and the chicken cage equipment should be strictly disinfected.

6. Do not allow the flow of airflow to face the flock: when the house temperature is low, a baffle can be set to change direction so that the flock is not directly exposed to the wind.

7. Air flowing into the house: keep a low speed of 0.3 to 0.35 meters per second. Care should be taken to maintain room temperature as it passes through the flock. At the same time, the airflow speed of the whole house should be basically the same, there is no dead angle, no strange wind.

The above seven points are the requirements of the author for the farmers to use the fan to ventilate the house. The ventilation environment of the house is very important. Farmers should keep in mind the basic requirements of ventilation in the house to create a comfortable environment for the chicken flock.

Layer chicken breeding equipment to explain two kinds of lighting methods for raising chickens

The laying hens Chicken Breeding Equipment explains two methods of illuminating chickens. For laying broiler equipment, it is one of the more familiar equipments for farmers. It is one of the indispensable technical measures for modern chicken production for the light system, and it is based on the circadian rhythm of chicken. The following laying broiler equipment will give you an explanation of the two lighting systems for laying hens.

 

 

 

 

First, the light hours are kept stable: the number of natural sunshine when the chicken is 20 weeks old is detected. If it is 14 hours, natural light and artificial light supplementation are used from the brooding to maintain the daily light 14 Hours to 20 weeks of age, and then gradually extend the poultry farming cage light time to 16 hours according to the requirements of the laying period.

 

The second is to gradually shorten the illumination time: first find out the natural sunshine hours of the chicken to 20 weeks of age, add this number for 4 hours, as the light time at the beginning of the brooding, such as the nature at 20 weeks of age. The number of hours of sunshine is 13.5 hours, plus 17.5 hours after 4 hours, keeping this illumination time constant for 4 weeks, from 15 weeks of illumination per week to 15 weeks of illumination, to 20 weeks of illumination. It is just sunshine time. After 20 weeks of age, the lighting time is gradually increased according to the requirements of the laying period.

Cascading laying hen cage equipment introduction

The perfect poultry farming cage equipment can make the chicken have a comfortable growing environment, so that the chicken can grow healthily. Laying hen cage equipment for laying hens is the first choice for large-scale, intensive, and automated laying hens. It has the following characteristics:

 

 

 


1, small footprint, high space utilization, easy to achieve intensive and large-scale breeding. The space of the building can be fully utilized to reduce the cost of each chicken's site and construction investment. The chicken manure layering and cleansing in the chicken equipment greatly reduces the moisture of the chicken manure, and the utilization rate of chicken manure in chicken battery cages is high, and the environmental pollution is extremely small.

 

2, to achieve full automation control, greatly reducing the operator, reducing labor intensity and improving labor productivity. Energy loss is reduced due to inactivity in caged chickens. It can effectively improve the return of feed and save the cost of feed saving feed.

 

3, the use of fully enclosed feeding mode, is conducive to the prevention of infectious diseases. It is easy to raise the temperature of the house and save energy, so that the fuel cost of each chicken is greatly reduced.

 

4, can effectively reduce the incidence of intestinal diseases in chickens. It is also possible to detect the disease in a timely manner so as to be eliminated in time, which is helpful for controlling the incidence of large groups.


The chicken feed line tray in the chicken raising machinery uses engineering plastics as the main production material. The production intensity is high, there is no poison and pollution, and the maintenance cost is greatly reduced. Among them, its long service life is greatly extended. The automated laying hen equipment can provide conditions for chicken scale farming, and the chicken feed tray can be used for 50-70 chickens at the same time.

If want to improve your economic efficiency, raise chicken in broiler cages

The ultimate goal of farmers to raise chickens is to obtain good economic returns, so in recent years many farmers have been constantly looking for scientific farming methods for breeding broilers. In recent years, through comprehensive comparisons in many aspects, farmers in the broiler breeding industry are generally using broiler cages poultry farming equipment for raising chickens. The following is mainly to tell the farmers about the economy of using chickens in broiler cages for farmers. benefit.

 

 

 


1. The use of broiler cages to raise chickens has increased the number of raises by farmers, which can increase the income from the sale of chickens in the later stages of farmers.

2. The use of broiler cages to raise chicken cages has a small footprint, which can make full use of the advantages of space, so that farmers can save the use of the house area and reduce the rental costs of farmers.

3. When using chickens in broiler cages, the farmers can more intuitively observe the living conditions of the flocks, so that the farmers can find out the various situations of the flocks in time, so that the farmers can find out the situation in time to take measures to avoid unnecessary Economic losses.

4. When raising chickens in broiler cages, the chickens can be separated from the feces, thus reducing the chance of the chickens contacting the feces and reducing the disease of the flocks, saving farmers a lot of medical costs.

5. When raising chickens in broiler cages, the activity of the flocks will be greatly reduced, and the conversion rate of the feed will be increased, which will save the farmers a lot of feed costs.

6. When chickens are raised in broiler cages, the phenomenon of flocks can be avoided, so that the damage of the flocks can be effectively prevented.

The above points are the considerable economic benefits when using chicken battery cage for broilers . I hope that through today's narrative, farmers can have a more comprehensive understanding and understanding of the advantages of broiler chickens.

How to scientifically raise chicks using poultry farming equipment?

Feeding of chicks is a stage that every breeder of broiler chickens has to go through. The chicks refer to the flocks that were born soon. The chicks have poor physiology and low resistance. In order to obtain a better survival rate, farmers need to be carefully and scientifically raised to ensure the survival rate of the chicks and lay a solid foundation for adult chickens. The authors refer to the recommendations of poultry equipment manufacturers and farmers to teach farmers the key points of scientific breeding of chicks.

1. When the chicks are transported to the brooding house, work on boiling water and food. The boiling water and food for chicks should be based on the principle of first boiling water and then feeding. After the chicks are out of the shell, some of the yolks have not been absorbed. The drinking water of the chicks can accelerate the metabolism of this nutrient. Feeding the chicks should be done: the chicken feed is nutritious, digestible, and palatable. The full price of the chicken feed is appropriate, the trough is sufficient, and the feeding frequency is gradually reduced according to the age. Because the digestive function of the chick is poor, it can not be overeating. If it is overeating, it will cause indigestion, causing digestive tract disease.

2. Control the ventilation, light and disease in the house

(1) Control ventilation: reasonable ventilation of the chicken house can discharge the harmful gas inside the chicken house outside the chicken house. Let the fresh air enter the house, so that the house can reach a fresh and comfortable environment, so that the chicks can grow healthily.

(2) Control lighting: Reasonable light can promote growth and bone development, prevent diseases and improve production performance. When the chicks are 3 weeks old, they can put the chicks outside the house at noon on sunny days (the climate is warmer), soaking the sun and exercising for 1-2 hours. This will not only promote the growth and development of the chicks, but also promote the chicks to gradually adapt to the natural environment.

(3) Controlling the occurrence of diseases: young chicks are small and have poor disease resistance. Once an epidemic occurs, the infection is fast, the mortality rate is high, and the loss is large. Therefore, farmers are required to do the disinfection work of the chicken house and the immunization work of the chicken.

3. Control the temperature, humidity and density inside the house. The right temperature is the key to raising chicks:

Generally, chicks have temperature requirements of 34 to 35 ° C for 1 to 3 days, 32 to 33 ° C for 4 to 7 days of age, and 2 to 3 ° C per week for 7 days of age until 20 ° C. After about 6 weeks, the chicks can adapt to the natural environment. Maintain proper humidity in the chick house: the humidity in the brooding house is too high or too low for the growth and development of the chick. The ideal humidity is 70% to 75% of the relative humidity in the first week, and 65% in the second week, and 55% to 60% as much as possible from the third week. Also pay attention to the density of the chicks: reasonable stocking density is an important condition to ensure the health and growth of the flocks. Generally, it is 30/m2 at the first week and 25/m2 at the second week, the third week. The time is 20/m2, 15/m2 at the 4th week, and about 10/m2 at the 5th week. In addition, the stocking density of chicks must be flexibly controlled according to the variety, season, gender, and structure of the house, ventilation conditions and feeding methods.

The above is the author's focus on the farmers, the use of poultry farming cages for scientific breeding of chicks. It is hoped that farmers can focus on this, which not only can reduce the incidence of disease in chicks, but also effectively improve the survival rate of chicks, which will also help to increase the breeding efficiency of farmers.

What are the advantages of using a chicken cage?

Layer chicken cage is a kind of equipment used to raise laying hens at home and abroad. The reason for the wide application is because the design of the layer cage provides a comfortable environment for the chickens, so that the chickens can grow faster and more eggs during the feeding process, saving trouble and materials. The advantages of the layer cages are mainly reflected in the front net and the cage door. The density of feeding, the angle of the egg, and so on.

Layer cages are divided into deep cages and shallow cages or light, medium and heavy layer cages depending on the feeding process, variety, size and weight of the laying hens.

The comfort of the layer cage is closely related to the design of the cage. The front net design of the layer cage is generally composed of a vertical wire and a few horizontal wires. The vertical wire gap is between 4.5 and 6.5 cm, and the cage door is generally 2-3 wires connected to the front net and opened like inside or outside.

The layer cage uses the advantages of a comfortable chicken cage. The chicken feeding position can be changed arbitrarily and can accommodate more chickens to eat together. The structure is simple, the materials used are small, the installation control is relatively simple, and it is easy to get started. Layer cages can reduce the chance of hens being injured and better protect the feathers of the birds.

The automatic poultry farming equipment realizes automatic management: through the setting of the central control computer system, the automatic management of the temperature, humidity, ventilation, lighting, roller blinds, etc. in the house is realized.

The high-density laminated cage of laying hens has the advantages of saving land, reducing feeding cost and improving labor productivity. It is a new intensive and high-g-feeding management mode for laying hens, which is in line with the development trend of modern laying hens.

Why do chickens in cages often get sick?

It is not easy to raise chickens in layer chicken cage . What is the reason why chickens are often sick during chicken raising?

 

First, what is chicken disease?

1. Chicken diseases can be divided into infectious diseases caused by pathogenic microorganisms, accounting for more than 70% of chicken diseases; nutritional metabolic diseases; poisoning diseases; parasitic diseases; other diseases.

2, the causes of chicken disease include the cause, cause and cause of death, the cause is directly caused by chicken disease, the incentive is to promote the cause of chicken disease, the cause of death is the cause of death in the final body failure; the three are closely related, The process of chicken disease is expressed from different angles; in the process of prevention and control of chicken disease, prevention and control should be carried out from three aspects at the same time, and the principle of “cultivating weight in prevention and prevention in treatment” should be adhered to, so that the chickens can be smoothly released.

 

 

 

 

 

Second, the cause of chicken disease:

1. The cause of chicken disease

The cause of chicken disease is the direct cause of a chicken disease. For common diseases, the cause basically refers to a specific pathogenic pathogen. For example, the cause of chicken chronic respiratory disease is Mycoplasma gallisepticum and chicken cholera. The cause of the disease is that the cause of Pasteurella and chicken white diarrhea is Salmonella, the cause of chicken white crown disease is the Leptoplasma hominis, etc. After these pathogens are infected, they self-reproduce in the body. After reaching a certain number, they can cause cells and tissues. Organ damage, decreased function, and the involvement of the immune system, the infected tissue has an inflammatory reaction, which in turn causes systemic or local symptoms and signs. Since these chicken disease characteristics are caused by specific pathogens, it is the cause of chicken disease.

2, the cause of death of chicken disease

Most chicken diseases will end in the late stage of animal death. The causes of death are complicated. Pathogenic microorganisms will continuously release toxins during the process of metabolism. Some of these toxins will cause red blood cell hemolysis, and some will cause changes in blood physical and chemical properties. Some cause neurological dysfunction, some trigger the related enzyme activity is inhibited, so the entire body's metabolic function is unbalanced, unable to meet the physiological needs and death, the death cause is mostly caused by the disorder of the function of tissues and organs, caused by the stop of metabolism.

 

Most chickens now use chicken cages and poultry farming cage equipment to raise chickens. This farming method is more efficient and efficient.

How to strengthen the daily feeding management of broiler cages

Feeding chickens in broiler cages equipment is an indispensable item for chicken farmers. It is also an important matter for chicken farmers. It not only reduces the incidence of diseases, but also achieves great economic benefits. Then, in daily life, how can farmers strengthen the management of broiler cages?

First of all, the most important thing for farmers should pay attention to. When the temperature of the broiler cage is too low, the chickens scream and gather. When the temperature is too high, the chickens are scattered and have a wheezing. The temperature is suitable for the chickens to be evenly distributed. It is also possible to use a combination of a thermometer and a sense to determine if the temperature is suitable. The optimum temperature can give the maximum benefit of the feed. Too low a temperature can cause respiratory diseases and deaths in chickens.

Secondly, keep the broiler cage dry, the drinking water system should be checked frequently, and the drinker should not leak or overflow. During the brooding period, it is best to use the straw to make the litter, which is relatively dry and is conducive to raising the temperature. Medium and large chicken stage temperatures below 18 ° C should be thickened to increase the temperature.

Except for the broiler cage, air circulation is required to keep the air fresh. If the air contains harmful gases or dust, it can affect the health of the chicken, which may cause respiratory diseases and even death. In the winter, if the coal stove is used for heat preservation, a large amount of harmful gases such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide are generated. Therefore, ventilation should be carried out without lowering the normal room temperature, and the content of harmful gases and dust in the house should be reduced.

The above content is to strengthen the daily feeding management method of poultry farming equipment. Through the introduction of the author, I hope to help the farming users.

About the temperature control of the house

Good house breeding can prevent the onset of 70-80% of the disease, and together it is the most important guarantee for good benefits. Large-scale breeding of chickens is still the most appropriate and convenient when placed in a battery cage for broilers

 


After the chicks are out of the shell, the body temperature is 39-40 degrees. 7-10 days is almost normal. In the first 3 weeks, the chicks have poor self-regulating body temperature and are very sensitive to external temperature changes. Therefore, it is necessary to rely on the ambient temperature in the house to keep warm, and the temperature is related to the health of the chicken. Situation and feed utilization. Can't just look at the temperature sensor.

 


Boiler heating demand is generally common in all places, the temperature difference should not exceed 1 degree, especially the temperature of the plumbing fan is usually too high, sometimes the difference between the warm and stop supply temperature is 5 degrees, pay attention to block. The demand temperature is relatively stable. The temperature is too high, the chicks are easy to dehydrate, the hair growth is poor, the drinking water is too much, the feed intake is reduced, the diarrhea is reduced, and the growth is slow. For a long time, the physical condition is reduced and the disease resistance can be lowered. The temperature is too low, the yolk absorption is not good, the antibody level is low, and it is easy to cause respiratory diseases, and the feed consumption is added together.

 

 

 

 


In the early spring, the temperature difference between the late autumn and winter is large, so pay attention to the constant temperature control. Too high a temperature can affect weight. If the temperature of brooding exceeds 38 °C and continues for more than 3 hours, it will affect the growth and development of the chicks, and it is necessary to insist that the temperature is relatively stable. This is the key to the progress of the benefits. With the addition of age, it is best to gradually add temperature difference, let it gradually get used to the temperature difference, and improve the habits of chickens for high and low temperatures. Adhere to the temperature difference between day and night, the chicken does not exceed 1.5-2 degrees, the chicken is 2-3 degrees, the big chicken does not exceed 3-4 degrees, and the smaller the better, pay special attention to the large temperature difference change in a short time.

 


The temperature in the house and chicken battery cages is grasped, and the temperature displayed on the thermometer can be used as a reference, mainly based on the practice of the flock. At the end of spring, summer, early autumn, the temperature difference is too large. When the boiler is heated in the middle and middle stages, try to cool down slowly. That is, adopt a higher temperature in the house, artificially reduce the temperature difference between night and day, or adopt the method of gradually adding temperature difference to let the chicken It is customary to shake the temperature of the low temperature. Do not change the temperature difference during the other moulting period.

What are the advantages of broiler rearing cages?

In recent years, in order to increase the amount of broiler breeding at home and abroad, many cage tests have been carried out, mainly to lay a plastic mesh mat on the bottom of the cage or to use a plastic-coated wire mesh bottom to cushion the compression of the chicken breast. Although it is still not perfect, it is not yet in production. It is popular, but because land prices are becoming more and more expensive, it is an inevitable trend for broiler development to improve the production of broilers.

1. Cage broiler chickens can increase the stocking density and improve land utilization.

2. Feed broiler chickens in broiler battery cages with high feed utilization and reduced feed costs. Mainly because cage broilers have a small range of activities and flock activities are limited. Reduced exercise consumption, which increases the ratio of feed to meat.

3. It can be released 2 days in advance, and the shortening of the feeding cycle is mainly because the cage broiler has a small range of activity, consumes less energy, and has a relatively fast growth rate.

4. Reduce the incidence of disease and reduce the cost of drugs. Because caged broilers are isolated from the ground and feces, it can effectively control the occurrence of intestinal diseases such as coccidiosis. Without litter, it eliminates the breeding environment of bacteria and microorganisms and reduces the possibility of various diseases. The daily accumulation of feces reduces the content of harmful gases such as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide in the air of the house, improves the sanitary environment of the house, reduces the harmful stimulation of harmful air to the respiratory mucosa, and reduces the incidence of respiratory diseases.

5. Improve the survival rate of broilers and increase the income of farming mainly because:
1) The range of activities of caged broilers is in the cage, which reduces the death caused by the extrusion of activities such as feeding and drinking.
2) The incidence of caged broilers is low and the mortality rate naturally decreases.
3) The caged broiler has a short feeding period of 2 days, which also reduces the probability of death.

About the effect of nutrition on egg weight

Egg laying in the battery cage for layers will also bring economic benefits from the production of eggs. When selling eggs, the weight is calculated according to the weight. The egg weight is directly related to the economic benefit of the culture, and the egg weight is affected by the cultured species and culture. Mode, environment, nutritional level and other factors.


The effect of protein on the weight of eggs, protein accounts for 10% of the total weight of eggs, and the total weight of duck eggs is more than 12%. There must be a certain level of protein in the diet to supplement essential amino acids and provide sufficient nitrogen source for the synthesis of non-essential amino acids. 

 

 

 

 

 

The effect of methionine on egg weight The effect of methionine on the weight of eggs in the layer chicken cage , methionine is involved in the synthesis of protein in the body, and is also an important methyl donor. It is often the first limiting amino acid in avian corn-soybean diet. An important nutrient factor that affects egg weight. For high-yielding laying hens, methionine levels can significantly affect egg weight. Energy is the driving force behind the metabolism of poultry. Without energy, the entire metabolic process of poultry is affected. There are some inconsistencies in the effect of energy on the weight of poultry eggs. As the energy level increases, the egg weight also increases significantly.

 

Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid in poultry. As early as 1974, it was confirmed that linoleic acid is an important factor affecting the maximum egg weight. Linoleic acid can increase the synthesis ability of liver lipoprotein
lipase, increase the development of oocytes, and increase egg weight by increasing the weight of egg yolk. However, there is some controversy about the need for linoleic acid to meet the maximum egg weight. Most studies have shown that 1.0% linoleic acid content can basically meet the needs of maximum egg weight, and the content of sub-oil in the diet is less than 0.8%. Acid may reduce egg weight. The difference in the study of linoleic acid requirements may come from the storage of linoleic acid in laying hens. Egg yolks can meet their needs by using their own stored linoleic acid. For example, linoleic acid storage during the breeding phase can reduce the initial stage of production. The need for linoleic acid in the stage, while the need for linoleic acid in the late stage of egg production increases.

Production advantages of using broiler cages to raise broilers

Because the demand for broiler chickens is getting bigger and bigger in the society, some people have seen business opportunities and started to raise broilers. The chicken meat is rich in protein and the meat is delicious, which is very popular among people. So what kind of production advantages does it have for farmers to use broiler battery cages to raise broilers? The authors refer to the experience of poultry equipment manufacturers and now share them with farmers.

1. Early growth of broilers is very fast. Generally, the weight of the chicks is 40 grams. After 56 days of feeding, the body weight is close to 2000 grams, which is 50 times the weight of the shell. Some people like to compare the early growth rate of broilers is "100 meters race", feeding management techniques must be appropriate, otherwise it is difficult to make up.

2. Short production cycle and fast turnover. Domestic broilers usually reach the market standard at 8 weeks of age and weigh more than 1.5 kg. After each batch, they should be cleaned, disinfected and fumigated for 10-14 days. A batch of pigs is raised in about 10 weeks. If the chicks are supplied in time, 5 batches can be produced in one year.

3. The feed utilization efficiency is high. The domestic conversion rate of broiler feed is 2.5-2.8:1, which is close to 2:1 in many countries around the world. Broilers shorten the developmental stage by increasing early growth rate and are listed at 7 weeks of age to further increase feed conversion.

4. Chicken cages have high stocking density and high utilization rate of chicken houses. Compared with laying hens, broilers are quiet and not moving. In addition to eating and drinking water, they rarely fight, especially in the late fattening period, due to the rapid increase in body weight, the amount of activity is greatly reduced. Although the density increases with the growth of the chicken, the density of the air in the house is small, and the breeding density can be increased as long as there is suitable ventilation. Generally, the density of light chicken cages is 24-32/m2, and that of medium chickens is 20-24/m2.

5. Suitable for automatic poultry breeding equipment to save labor. Feeding broiler chickens is caged, with high density, chickens are in cages, feeding, picking eggs, clearing dung, epidemic prevention, etc., and automated production lines can improve labor efficiency.

6. Improve feed efficiency by 5-10% and reduce total cost by 3-7%.

7. It is not easy to get coccidiosis, which can save a lot of expenses.
