How to deal with the high temperature and high humidity in the chicken coop?

Most chicken houses now use automatic ventilation systems. Because this method has good effect of cooling equipment and simple operation. It is currently widely used by most farmers. It is worth noting that farmers need to pay attention to the occurrence of high temperature and high humidity when using this system.

Adjust the nutritional level of the diet

The high temperature reduces the appetite of the chicken and the feed intake decreases. This leads to reduced intake of nutrients for chickens. Therefore, farmers must adjust the diet formula to meet the nutritional needs of chickens under heat stress conditions. Different nutrients produce different heat during digestion. Farmers need to pay attention to make the fat-derived feed as large as possible.

Regulate the feeding method

The temperature is highest at noon in summer. Chickens have low appetite. In the morning and evening, the temperature is suitable, and the chicken is hungry. Feeding at this time can stimulate appetite and increase feed intake. Since chickens are fed for 3-5 hours to produce heat, avoid feeding them after nine o'clock in the morning.

Light time

In order to meet the nutritional needs of chicken production or growth. Improve chicken anti-stress ability. Broilers can adopt the intermittent lighting system at night. For example: low light illumination for one hour, lights off for 2-3 hours. Laying hens can turn on the lights at around one in the morning to allow the chickens to move around and dissipate heat, and drink water for feed. The chickens began to lay eggs at dawn. This avoids laying eggs during high heat around noon and reduces heat stress.

The above is the method of raising chickens to deal with the high temperature and humidity in the chicken cages that I have shared. Hope to help farmers.
