Management of Safe Raising Chickens in Farms in Autumn and Winter

There are some differences in the way chickens are raised in different seasons, especially in autumn and winter when the daily temperature and temperature difference between day and night vary greatly. In order to provide a good living environment for the chickens in the battery cage for chickens and give better play to the production performance of the chickens, attention should be paid to the control of temperature, humidity and ventilation.



The temperature in the chicken coop should be kept at 18℃~23℃, and the minimum temperature should not be lower than 15℃. Adjust the size of the air inlet every day according to the weather and the performance of the chickens. Don't let the cold wind blow the chickens directly to prevent the chickens from getting sick due to cold stress. Don't open the air window facing the temperature controller to prevent cold air from blowing directly into the temperature controller so that the temperature around it does not conform to the actual temperature in the chicken coop. When installing the timing temperature control exhaust fan, select the louver with complete louver instead of the north exhaust fan.





Before winter comes, clean the Chicken Breeding Equipment Machinery of the chicken cage to avoid the influence of too much dust. There are no chickens or very few chickens on the scaffolding at one end of the air inlet in the chicken house and on the ground, indicating that it is cold here. Adjust the air inlet or plug the air leakage to prevent stress and prevent the occurrence of common cold in the chicken coop. Every day before leaving work, check the exhaust fan and motor to see if the temperature-controlled exhaust fan is sensitive. Watch the weather forecast every day in order to do prevention work well in advance.


Do a good job in the temperature management of chicken coops in winter. When the temperature in the coops is suitable, increase the ventilation. Adjust the water pressure of nipple drinking line to below 10cm, or adjust the water level of drinking device to below 1cm. Check the drinking water line frequently, and replace or repair the nipple joint with water leakage. If the drinking water device leaks water, it should be handled in time to prevent the excessive ammonia smell in the chicken coop caused by water leakage from affecting the health of the chicken flocks.
