The use of layer cage equipment to develop poultry farming is a popular form of animal husbandry. Chickens are raised to produce meat or eggs for food. Poultry (mainly chickens) are raised in large numbers, for example in chicken battery cages.
Advantages of developing layer breeding projects
With the improvement of living standards, people's demand for chicken products is increasing day by day. And the price of eggs in the market remained stable within the region. This has a certain relationship with the long breeding cycle. Less affected by price fluctuations is a distinct advantage of its farming. Moreover, when raising laying hens, it is not as tiring as broilers, and it is easier to manage in all aspects, so this is also an advantage.
Commercial hens typically start laying eggs at 16-21 weeks of age. Poultry farmers will get good income while keeping the same batch of pullets.
In addition, the use of poultry farming battery layer cages makes poultry farming easier. The chicken coops are stacked layer by layer, which means that the space in the chicken coop is fully utilized. Automated poultry farming equipment can realize automatic drinking water, feeding, egg collection, manure cleaning, environmental control, etc. Develop intensive poultry farming projects, 2 people can manage 30,000 birds.
Egg-laying systems often automatically control environmental conditions. For example, initially increase the duration of the mild phase to encourage egg laying at 16-20 weeks of age. The length of summer is then simulated, thereby stimulating the hens to continue laying eggs throughout the year. Usually, spawning only occurs during the warmer months. Some commercial hens can lay more than 300 eggs per year.
