How to raise chicken production in layer cages


How to raise chicken production in poultry layer cages? I believe this is where the farmers have doubts about raising chickens. Now let's talk about how to effectively increase the production of laying hens.

 We must know that light is the source of life for all things. Therefore, light is also an important factor affecting laying hens. After entering the autumn, the light gradually weakened, so pay attention to supplement. In layer feeding, reasonable supplementation of light is an effective way of low consumption and high yield, which can not only increase the egg production of the layer, but also improve the egg quality.


Reasonable lighting. Different light colors and wavelengths have different effects on laying hens. Experiments have proved that under the same conditions of other breeding conditions, the laying rate of hens raised under red light is significantly higher than that of hens of other colors, generally by about 20%.

The light should always be stable. Adding light to eggs generally starts at 19 weeks of age, and the light time ranges from short to long, and it is best to increase it by 30 minutes a week. When the light time per day reaches 16 hours, you must maintain a stable light, not for a long time and short. The best way is to add light every morning and evening.

The light intensity should be appropriate. For normal laying hens, the required light intensity is generally 2.7 watts. In order for the multi-layer caged chicken coop to have enough illuminance for the foundation, the illuminance during the design must be increased, generally 3.3 to 3.5 watts per square meter. Therefore, it is best to install light bulbs in the chicken coop with 40-60 watts. Generally, the height of the lamp is 2 meters, and the distance between the lamp and the lamp is about 3 meters. When installing more than two rows of light bulbs in the chicken house, they should be arranged crosswise. The distance between the light bulbs against the wall and the wall should be half the distance between the bulbs. Replace the damaged bulbs at any time. Wipe the bulbs once a week to maintain proper indoor brightness.


Automatic chicken farming equipment manufacturers share the methods to increase egg production of laying hens. Breeders can provide the chickens with a reasonable time of light, allowing the chickens to produce more eggs.
