Although there are more and more farmers using fully automatic poultry farming equipment, the most important concern for laying hens is the amount of eggs laid. The key to increasing egg production is to extend the peak of laying of hens, because most of the eggs produced in a single egg come from this peak period. The longer this period, the total number of eggs laid. The higher. What should be done specifically to make this peak period as prolonged as possible?
1. Choose the right variety
After so many years of development, there have been many varieties of chickens. Even if the scope is reduced to laying hens, there are many varieties for farmers to choose. Different breeds have different egg production performance. Generally speaking, some newly-bred laying hens are more suitable for everyone to choose. After all, when they are cultivated, they are going to produce more eggs in this direction. In addition to the variety to be selected, specific to the individual chickens themselves, it is also necessary to make appropriate selections. Even for improved varieties, there will be great differences between individuals. Generally speaking, chickens with strong egg production have the following These characteristics: First, the body is strong and well-proportioned; Second, the characteristics of the hen are prominent; Third, it is more active and has a strong feeding ability; Fourth, the eyes are large and have God. It is recommended that when you choose a laying hen, you should select it according to this characteristic, so as to ensure sufficient peak production period.
2. Prepare the feed
In order for the chicken to lay more eggs, the feed must be good. For the chickens that are laying eggs, in order to breed more eggs, it is necessary to increase the proportion of protein in the feed, which is very different from the fattening chicken. Regarding the feed supply of laying hens, it is generally recommended to formulate according to the following ratio: 55 percent corn, 15 percent soybean meal, 17 percent wheat bran, 6 percent Five sorghum and eight percent of fishmeal. In addition, in order to facilitate the formation of eggshells, it is necessary to add two percent of shell powder and 1.2 percent of bone powder. If these two items are not added, the chicken may have a soft shell egg. In addition, in order to ensure the body of the laying hen, it is necessary to add an appropriate amount of salt and multi-dimensional components. Only when properly fed can the maximum peak of egg production be maximized.
3. Do a good job of disease prevention
When raising laying hens, the most headache is the occurrence of diseases. Once this happens, the egg production will be less, and it is very likely that the chickens will die in large numbers, causing great losses. Therefore, when breeding laying hens, we must do a good job of disease prevention and control. In addition to timely anti-epidemic at all stages of chicken growth, we should also pay attention to the disinfection of the house, only to control the pathogens. Only in this way can the laying of chickens be protected from disease. As a result, the chicken can remain healthy all the time, which is very beneficial for extending its peak egg production period.
