The important role of baking soda in poultry farming

With the widespread use of automatic poultry cage systems, chickens are well taken care of, but there are some simple tricks that can help chicks convert feed well. For example, adding sodium bicarbonate to the diet or drinking water can improve feed intake and growth rate of broilers raised at high temperatures. Measurements of the retention of dietary or cation-anion balance or dietary electrolyte balance do not satisfactorily predict growth and/or feed conversion responses in broilers at elevated temperatures. The improvement in body weight does not appear to be associated with an increase in body water retention.


Dietary supplementation of various levels of NaHCO3

 Antibody titers against Newcastle disease were increased in chickens housed in battery chicken cages compared to diets not supplemented with Newcastle disease. Environmental stressors are known to directly or indirectly affect host immunity and innate resistance. Therefore, the increased antibody titers against Newcastle disease virus in flocks fed diets containing different levels of NaHCO3 may be due to lower body temperature or lower cortisol concentrations in these birds compared to controls Less heat stress, or both.


An increase in dietary electrolyte balance may lead to a decrease in the ratio of heterophile to lymphocytes in the blood, resulting in an increase in antibody titers. Therefore, it is safe to conclude that dietary supplementation of NaHCO3 may increase antibodies in poultry and reduce chicken sickness.


Supplementation of NaHCO3 to the laying hens showed higher protein digestibility in these flocks compared to controls. Protein consumed by birds is broken down into its constituent amino acids by certain enzymes in the digestive tract before being absorbed, and most of these amino acids require sodium for this process. Therefore, the increase in protein digestibility in the treatment group may be due to the presence of higher sodium ion concentrations in diets containing sodium bicarbonate.


Problem Description Sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3), also known as baking soda, is 27.09% sodium, 71.91% bicarbonate, and contains no chlorides. It is an FDA-approved and "Generally Recognized as Safe" feed ingredient. Sodium bicarbonate is described as "a special ingredient because it provides sodium, beneficially affects blood pH, and provides beneficial bicarbonate.


The above is the important role of baking soda shared by poultry equipment manufacturers to promote digestion and enhance antibodies in the process of raising laying hens or broilers.


Tips to increase chicken and egg sales

The widespread use of battery cage systems has expanded the number of poultry farming, and has also received government support and social attention. But for poultry farmers, raising poultry is one aspect, and paying attention to selling chicken and eggs is also an important aspect. You are not raising chickens for household use after all. Then enough attention must be paid to the marketing side of the business.

Methods of selling poultry

  1. Bulk sales. Most of your poultry farmers rely on middlemen to help sell their products. They sell in bulk to other people, who in turn sell to consumers. If you want to sell faster then you should proactively find customers to sell poultry. This allows you to sell to retailers in addition to wholesalers.
  2. Do business online. Today, the power of websites is very powerful. A large percentage of people use the internet every day, and if you want your business to thrive, you can't turn a blind eye to the internet. Your social media accounts are a great place to promote your business and increase product awareness.
  3. Become a supplier to hotels and restaurants. Write a great proposal with well thought out incentives that you can send to hotel and restaurant managers. Proposed to be their main poultry meat and egg supplier. Foods made from poultry or eggs are always on the menu in hotels and restaurants, and they have to get their eggs from somewhere. You can help them get a regular supply of fresh eggs without stress.
  4. Feed your bird. Yes, this is also a very important marketing concept. When you feed your birds well, they produce quality eggs. This is exactly what consumers like. If you want your product to be the first choice of consumers, then you must pay attention to the quality of the product you produce and your poultry farming; this means paying attention to supplementing your poultry, because good food equals good eggs and good chicken.

The above is what poultry equipment manufacturers share with poultry farmers on how to sell chicken and eggs more efficiently. From four aspects, I hope that every poultry farmer can obtain considerable benefits and be more confident in poultry farming. Live a better life with your family.


Advantages of using automated broiler breeding equipment

In the process of breeding broilers, there are many advantages of using broiler breeding equipment for breeding work. Let's take a look below.

First of all, the use of broiler equipment for breeding work can effectively reduce the cost of artificial feeding and improve breeding efficiency. Common broiler equipment includes automatic drinking water equipment, automatic feeding equipment, automatic manure cleaning equipment, automatic temperature control equipment and automatic control equipment. Therefore, the use of the above equipment provides more convenience for farmers.



Secondly, the use of the battery broiler cage system for breeding can provide a good growing environment for the chicken house, and the use of this equipment during the growth of the flock can reduce the contact with manure, thereby effectively reducing the occurrence of various diseases.

In addition, the use of broiler cages can effectively reduce the waste of feed, and the use of automatic feeding equipment can feed the chickens according to the usual eating habits of the flocks, which not only enables the healthy growth of the flocks, but also reduces the waste of feed.

The above are the many advantages of using broiler breeding equipment. I hope that after understanding the advantages of this equipment, everyone can arrange for their own farms, thus providing more convenience for their own farms.


How to disinfect chicken houses with poultry cage systems more scientifically?

In the process of raising egg broilers, chicken disinfection is a work that every farmer must pay attention to. There will be pathogenic microorganisms in the chicken house of every farmer, especially when the weather is hot, it is a good period for the reproduction of microorganisms, which will directly affect the health of the chickens. Therefore, reasonable and effective disinfection can provide a hygienic growth and production environment for chickens and reduce the disease rate of chickens. So how can farmers disinfect to be more scientific and effective?



  1. Clean the chicken house before disinfection: Before carrying out disinfection with chickens, farmers should pay attention to the need to thoroughly clean the roof, walls, chicken coop passages, and dust and other pollutants on the automated chicken raising equipment. In order to improve the disinfection effect and save the amount of medicine.


  1. Select high-quality disinfection drugs: When selecting disinfection drugs with chicken disinfection, farmers should pay attention to choosing broad-spectrum, high-efficiency, and strong bactericidal effects, but with low toxicity and irritation, no residue, and less corrosiveness to metal and plastic products. of disinfectant. Commonly used disinfection drugs in the chicken industry include Baidu, Baijie, peracetic acid, sodium hypochlorite, Xinjieermin, etc. The farmers can choose according to their actual situation and local varieties.


  1. Scientific preparation of disinfectants: When preparing disinfectants, farmers should pay attention to choosing deep well water or tap water with less impurities, and pay attention to controlling the water temperature at about 30-45°C. Another very important point is that the stability of the disinfectant becomes poor after dilution with the medicinal water, so farmers must prepare and use it immediately, and use it up once, and the prepared disinfectant cannot be stored.


  1. Selection of disinfection equipment and correct spraying: When choosing disinfection equipment, poultry equipment manufacturers suggest that farmers can choose high-pressure power sprayers or knapsack sprayers. When spraying, they should be sprayed in a circle above the chicken house. The diameter of the mist particles is 80 to 120 microns. If the mist particles are too small, it is easy to be inhaled into the respiratory tract by chickens, causing pulmonary edema, and may also induce respiratory diseases in severe cases; but if the mist particles are too large, it is easy to cause uneven spray and increase the humidity of the chicken house.


  1. Master the frequency and amount of spray disinfection: Under normal circumstances, it is recommended that farmers can choose to bring chickens to disinfect 2 to 3 times a week for their chicken houses. Farmers should not carry out spray disinfection with chickens during the brooding stage, but they can carry out disinfection with chickens after 1 week of age. However, it should be noted that the general spray amount is calculated at 30-50 ml per square meter, the amount of spray for chicks is less, and the amount of spray for medium and large chickens is more.

In addition, poultry equipment manufacturers remind farmers that they should also pay attention to the following issues. If the chickens are vaccinated, the farmers cannot carry out disinfection with the chickens within 3 days before and after, so as not to affect the immune effect. After the chickens are disinfected, the ventilation of the chicken house should be strengthened, so as to facilitate the drying of the surface of the chicken flock and the chicken house.


What are the characteristics of layer cages in automatic chicken raising equipment?

What are the characteristics of the layer cage system? Today, the poultry equipment manufacturers introduce these aspects in detail. You can have a certain understanding and mastery of the layers and other aspects of the laying hen breeding equipment. Let's follow the experts to see an overview of the relevant content.



  1. Small footprint, high space utilization, easy to achieve intensive and large-scale breeding.
  2. The layered cleaning and natural air-drying of chicken manure greatly reduce the moisture content of chicken manure, the utilization rate of chicken manure is high, and the environmental pollution is minimal.
  3. Fully automatic control is realized, which greatly reduces the number of operators, reduces labor intensity, and improves labor productivity.
  4. What are the product characteristics of the laying hen breeding equipment that adopts the fully enclosed breeding mode to prevent infectious diseases?

The above are the characteristics of the layer chicken cage system shared by poultry equipment manufacturers. The use of stacked chicken cages can save poultry breeding time, save manpower, and help poultry farmers to obtain higher income.


The reason why the battery cage system is prone to bending

The battery cage system with reasonable structure and high quality has a service life of more than 15-20 years, and can provide a relatively comfortable living environment for the chickens to ensure the normal production potential of the chickens.

Poorly structured and poor-quality chicken cages will either deform and crack solder joints as soon as the chickens are put into the cage, or they will continue to jam the chickens, or the chickens will be in a state of stress for a long time, and it will be difficult to perform normal production performance. Chicken cages often jam and nest eggs, causing damage to the eggs, accumulating and losing enormously.

It can be seen that the quality of poultry layer cages of automatic chicken raising equipment is directly related to the economic benefits of the chicken industry. Whether it is chicken cage manufacturers, chicken farm technicians, or general individual chicken farmers, they should attach great importance to this. Therefore, it is very important to choose a good quality layer cage.



The production materials of chicken cages require cold drawn steel wires. Inferior steel quality is generally manifested as low steel wire hardness and poor elasticity, which reduces the overall strength of the chicken cage and is easy to deform. For the finished product that has been welded, the quality of the steel wire can be identified from the following aspects: 

High-quality steel wire has high hardness and strong elasticity. Use your fingers to pinch the two adjacent steel wires on the layer chicken cages plate where the distance between the welding points is large. You should clearly feel the elasticity of the steel wire. When the force is moderate, the slight bending caused by the pinching can basically reset itself. , The steel base wood will not be deformed if you use light force. If the steel has a low hardness and poor elasticity, it will produce irreversible deformation if the adjacent steel wires are pinched with a slight force by hand. If the steel wire is severely bent without resetting with moderate force, the steel wire feels almost inelastic, so pick up the cage to make it When it fell on the concrete floor, the voice was short and muffled.

The cage plate made of high-quality steel wire has a loud and high sound on the ground, and the reverberation is long. The steel wire with extremely poor hardness will produce small wavy bends when straightening, which is very obvious from the eye view, and the high-quality chicken cage steel wire will never appear such bends. The chicken cages welded with low-hardness steel wires, even if the solder joints are firm, the chickens will be overwhelmed and bend down severely after being basketed, which can cause water and troughs to deform or break, which is not only inconvenient for management, but even make it difficult for chickens to eat and drink.


How to do a good job of guaranteeing large-scale chicken farming?

In recent years, the rise of large-scale layer farms, battery layer cages have also become the most important equipment in the market. For manufacturers who need to breed layer hens, purchasing chicken cage products has become a key task.

In today's layer cage market, automatic chicken cages products are very popular. Therefore, there are many manufacturers producing this chicken cage product. With the increasing pressure from peer competition, poultry equipment manufacturers also need to do a good job in guaranteeing the quality and performance of chicken cage products. The following article briefly introduces that the high-quality performance of the chicken cage is related to these factors.

The high-quality performance of the chicken coop is related to these factors. The chicken cage should be processed by a new type of hot-dip galvanizing process. The cage made by the hot-dip galvanizing process is completely galvanized, is not prone to corrosion and rust, and can be used for up to 20 years.



Poultry farmers should pay attention when buying poultry chicken cages, pay attention to the tilt angle of the bottom of the layer cage, generally 5-8° is appropriate. Eggs can roll out from inside. In this way, the hen will not peck the eggs and increase the breakage rate of the eggs, but also make it easier for the farmers to collect the eggs.

The choice of chicken cage should be based on the number of poultry in the poultry farm. As a high-quality chicken cage, its size design should be consistent with the number of chickens raised by the farmer, even if the material or other aspects have no shortcomings, if the size is required by the farmer The size does not match, and it can’t give play to the advantages of breeding, so this also warns farmers to choose a suitable cage based on their actual breeding volume when purchasing cages.

The above are the important factors that poultry equipment manufacturers should pay attention to when purchasing chicken cages recommended by farmers. The poultry chicken cage equipment manufacturers who have their own factories know that this matter is simple.


The poultry cage feeding management skills of chicken cage manufacturers

Chicken cage manufacturers have many skills in raising chickens. The most difficult process for the chicks in the growth of the flock requires the care of the farmers. The following points are summarized about the management skills of the cage feeding of the chicks:

①Start feeding; feeding the newborn chicks for the first time is commonly known as "start feeding". It is necessary to grasp the time for the chicks to start feeding. It is best to start feeding 12-24 hours after hatching, and it is best not to exceed 36 hours after long-distance transportation. Too early, the chicks have no appetite, and affect the absorption of egg yolk; too late, the chicks will consume too much energy, lose water and become weak, and also affect their future growth and survival. When the chicks can stand and move after their feathers are dry, 60%-70% of the chicks should start eating when they are looking for a peck. 

The starter feed requires freshness, with a moderate particle size of 1.5-2.0 mm, which is convenient for chicks to peck, and is nutritious and easy to digest. Farmers often use broken corn, broken rice, broken wheat, millet, etc. Large-scale chickens often use chicken mix to mix wet or directly feed dry powder.



② Feed combination; brooding feed should be a full price compound feed, which can meet the needs of protein, energy, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients during the growth and development of chicks. The feed for chicks can be prepared according to the feeding standards, combined with the status of the young group and the source and type of local feed. From the 4th day of brooding, an additional 1% of gravel can be added to the diet, especially for online brooding and cage brooding, and more attention should be paid to the replenishment of gravel.

③Feeding method: For the first three days of feeding, you can spread the feed directly on the opening tray or sterilized kraft paper or dark-colored plastic cloth to induce it to eat. Some chicks do not know how to eat when they are fed for the first time. Artificial lures should be used to make the chicks learn to eat. After 2-3 training sessions, the chicks can learn to eat. Cage brooding chicks are inconvenient to train, as long as the drinking water and starter feed are placed in a more conspicuous place that is easy to peck. After 4-7 days, you should gradually transition to the use of troughs or barrels for feeding. Generally speaking, 1-3 weeks old use young chicks troughs, 3-6 weeks old use medium-sized troughs, and after 6 weeks old, use large-sized troughs.

It is very convenient to use poultry cages in chicken farm to feed the chicks.


How to realize modern and intensive poultry farming?

At present, the use of automatic poultry farming equipment is the main way to realize modern and intensive poultry farming. Can have a suitable living environment for poultry and help poultry production.



  1. Compared with the battery cage system, it occupies a small area and has a large number of floors, generally four floors, up to 10 floors. battery layer cages can obtain more breeding area, increase the laying rate of layer hens, and have higher benefits. It is convenient for maintenance and repair, and the cage system can be controlled according to the prompt steps.
  2. The ventilation effect is better to ensure that the laying hens in the cage system will not suffocate due to high temperature. Cooperate with the manure removal belt to ensure the cleanliness of the cage system, reduce the breeding of germs, and reduce the disease rate and mortality of laying hens.
  3. layer egg collection system can reduce the breakage rate of eggs. The use of an automated egg collection system can reduce the breakage rate to three thousandths. Therefore, the egg collection equipment is very suitable for large-scale poultry farms.
  4. The automatic drinking water system can ensure equal water pressure and ensure the drinking water for the laying hens. The design of the elongated trough edge reduces the waste of feed and improves the effective conversion rate of feed.
  5. The planning of the cage door of the chicken battery cagesis also very important. Layer cage doors generally adopt a horizontal sliding door structure. It is easy to open, and there is no case of running chickens, and to prevent the feed from spilling out when eating. If there are chickens who want to raise their heads to shovel, there will be a steel fence around the chicken's neck, so the chickens can't raise their heads to shovel. Experiments have proved that battery layer cages can save more than 3% of feed.

Poultry battery chicken cages which will cause chickens to produce stress response

In the daily management of chickens using poultry battery chicken cages, if the poultry farmers do not pay attention to some aspects, it may cause a stress response in the flock. This is mainly due to management misunderstandings in these areas.



  1. Drinking water and feed: Insufficient drinking water for chickens or unbalanced feed nutrition, and unreliable quality is the cause of stress.
  2. Feeding density: The density of caged chickens is much higher than that of flat rearing. Farmers should add them according to the standard stocking density requirements. If you increase the number and density at will, there will be a probability of stress. Will be larger, and the greater the density, the greater the impact on chicken productivity.
  3. Beak cutting work: Beak cutting work must be done at the chick stage, but beak cutting is a serious pressure for the chicks, so this requires the breeder to be skilled, fast and as much as possible when cutting the beak. It was done at a young age. In addition, farmers should pay attention that some people will be immunized and beak cut at the same time to reduce stress. This is undesirable because it will increase the level of stress.
  4. Chicks transportation: After buying the chicks, the farmers are also prone to pressure during the process of transporting the chicks to the broiler house. The transportation, movement and long-distance transportation of chicks consume their physical strength and moisture. This is a serious pressure.
  5. Vaccination: Vaccination is an important means of preventing infectious diseases and is indispensable, but no matter which method of vaccination is used, it is a kind of pressure.
  6. Disease stress: If chickens are chronically or subtly infected with certain bacteria, viruses or internal and external parasitic diseases during the breeding process, this is due to the relative balance between the body and these pathogens, and it becomes a chronic or subclinical asymptomatic infection.


The above are some of the misunderstandings in the breeding management that caused the pressure of the flocks in the process of caged chickens shared by the poultry equipment manufacturers.


Issues that cannot be ignored in the layer cages in poultry farming equipment

The use of poultry layer cage systems is already the most common breeding mode. However, one point that is easy to overlook when using layer cages for breeding is to clean the water line. It is known that the quality of water is the key point in the poultry farm. Coupled with the high breeding density of poultry layer cages, it can be said that the quality of the water is directly related to the quality of the chickens.

Therefore, in the process of breeding, the water line of chicken drinking water needs to be cleaned frequently by us in order to provide the chicken with a sanitary drinking water. Let's talk about the importance of cleaning the waterline frequently:


First of all, cleaning the water line during poultry breeding can ensure the cleanliness of the integrated poultry drinking system. If the waterline is not cleaned for a long time, a lot of dirt, drug residues, algae and other substances will often accumulate in the water pipeline, drinking fountain, and water tank. The waterline is full of mucus, which breeds microorganisms and bacteria, which seriously affects the health of the chickens. Therefore, regular cleaning of the water line can keep the water quality clean, so as to ensure that the chickens can drink clean drinking water every day and reduce the occurrence of chicken diseases.

The second is to clean up the waterline regularly. This will prevent the residue from clogging the drinking nipples. Especially for farmers in tropical areas, lack of drinking water can cause stress responses in chickens. Therefore, it is necessary to clean the water line regularly to ensure the feed and water consumption of the chickens to ensure the health of the chickens and improve the uniformity of the chickens.



Finally, if the water line is not cleaned for a long time, when drinking water is immunized, the drug residues, algae and dirt in the water line will seriously affect the vaccine effect, resulting in immune failure or greatly reduced immune effect.

The above is the importance of using the layer cage system to clean the water line shared by the poultry equipment manufacturers. Farmers must pay attention to the cleaning of the water line.


What should I pay attention to when raising broilers in winter?

In winter, the temperature is very cold, and the temperature required by the automated chicken cage equipment is very different from the outside temperature. Ventilation and heat preservation must be done well. When ventilating, be careful not to fluctuate the temperature in the warehouse. In order to prevent stress and disease caused by excessive temperature difference, the vent should be 1.5 meters higher than the back of the chicken. When the working temperature drops sharply, the insulation work cannot keep up, which often causes the broilers to feel cold, cough, sneeze, and have difficulty breathing. Therefore, breeders must do a good job in temperature changes, cold protection, and heat preservation to prevent thieves and draughts from attacking the chickens.


In winter, the temperature is very cold. In addition to heat preservation work, it is necessary to promptly remove the flocks of excrement and wet litter. If it is not cleaned up in time, it will cause the accumulation of ammonia in the chicken house and increase its concentration, which may cause ammonia poisoning or cause broiler diseases. Moreover, due to the accumulation of ammonia and the relative lack of oxygen, coupled with severe cold weather, chickens have a fast metabolism, and broilers that grow too fast are prone to ascites. Therefore, farmers should lay more than 5 cm of litter to prevent the sink from leaking and wetting the litter. If the humidity is too high, remove the feces and wet litter in time, or use ammonia-absorbent deodorant to reduce the ammonia concentration in the chicken house.


According to different growth stages of broilers, diets should be configured according to feeding standards. Due to the lower temperature in winter, the broilers consume more calories, and the humidity of the medicine improves the metabolizable energy standard of the feed. At the same time, the proportion of protein is appropriately reduced to meet the demand for vitamins. Feed should be prepared immediately to prevent freezing. If possible, feed after heating. The configured feed must be free of mildew and impurities to prevent respiratory diseases.


In the breeding process, regular disinfection is required to prevent the spread of diseases, and insist on disinfection with chickens to eliminate rodents. After sick chickens are sick, they should be isolated from healthy chickens for treatment, and dead chickens should be buried deeply. Try to reduce the necessary stress factors in the breeding process, take all feasible means to feed the chickens, ensure the body's energy needs, and enhance the chicken's disease resistance.
