We all know that the existence of all things in time has its own specific conditions, and each condition is interdependent and mutually restrictive, as is the case for broiler breeding. Today, the three conditions that we have to give to the farmers to talk about the broiler cages are the same. They are complement each other and mutually dependent. These three conditions are less than the breeding work of any of the broilers. Successfully, let's talk to the farmers about the three conditions necessary for raising chickens in broiler battery cages:
1. Humidity in the chicken house
The humidity in the house has a great influence on the growth of the broiler. If the humidity of the house is lower than the 20%-25% required under normal circumstances, the conversion rate of the chicken feed will be greatly reduced. The ratio will increase by 10%; when the humidity is higher than the required 18%-20%, it will directly cause coccidiosis and various diseases and microbial pathogens. This shows that the control of humidity in the house is crucial for the growth of broilers.
2. The temperature inside the chicken house
Temperature control in the house is as important as humidity control, especially in winter and summer, where temperature in the house is not well controlled due to excessively high temperatures. The temperature of the house will directly affect the survival rate of the birds, so the temperature per minute in the house should be kept within the normal range. If the temperature in the house is lower than the required level of 34 degrees, the chicken must maintain its normal body temperature by increasing its own weight multiplied by 0.13% of the feed, which increases the feed to meat ratio. However, if the temperature in the house is higher than the required level of 34 degrees, it will cause respiratory diseases and a large number of bacterial infections. Not only does it cause great harm to the flock, it may even cause large-scale death of the flock, causing economic losses to the farmers.
3. Air quality in the chicken house
The quality of the air in the house is also very important for the growth of the flock. Especially when the air quality is poor, the main harmful gases in the gas are: harmful gases such as ammonia, carbon dioxide and dust. If the ammonia is too large, it will cause difficulty in breathing, inflammation of the cornea, and aggravation of the respiratory system; if the carbon dioxide is too large, it will cause diseases such as soft legs and ascites of the chicken. Therefore, farmers should regularly ventilate the house to prevent adverse effects from harmful gas.
