Tips for raising chickens in layer cages

Nowadays, most of the breeding industry adopts large-scale breeding methods, and large-scale breeding is inseparable from the scientific construction of breeding farms. In addition to using automatic layer cages, there are also some breeding techniques for breeding layer hens. 

Now the use of layer cages to raise chickens is highly automated, time-saving, labor-saving, and cost-saving. It has the advantages of automatic feeding, drinking water, cleaning manure, wet curtain cooling, and centralized management. This will improve the breeding efficiency of the farmers, and at the same time, it can effectively manage the laying hens.


  1. The breeder should adopt the method of expanding the group in cages in stages, that is to say, carry out the concentrated brooding in a small area for 21 days in the initial period of rearing, which can effectively save heating costs, and gradually expand the group after 21 days.
  2. The breeder should research and design the corresponding reasonable and scientific feed formula according to the nutrient content required by the caged broiler to meet the growth and development needs of the chicken under such high-density caged conditions. The vitamins of the feed formula are increased by an average of 20% compared to the ground level standard, which is suitable for the needs of caged broilers.
  3. The breeder should pay attention to the caged broiler house must be a fully enclosed house without windows. The air in the house is exhausted with an exhaust fan, and the fresh air enters the house through the air inlet. Artificial lighting is used in the house instead of natural lighting. When the temperature is high, the chicken house should be installed with a wet curtain to cool down. In the cold season, artificial heating or the heat of the chicken can be used to keep the temperature in the house within a comfortable range.
  4. The chicken flock has good hygiene and anti-epidemic effects, which can effectively prevent chicken infectious diseases. Once it is discovered that the epidemic can be quickly controlled to prevent it from spreading, and the chicken does not touch the feces, it can make the chicken grow healthier and provide a clean and comfortable growth environment for the chicken. Great improvement.


This is the end of the skill of laying chicken cage shared by automatic poultry farming equipment manufacturers. I hope that the above sharing can help farmers to raise chickens.
