How to configure feed for laying hens?

Nutritious feed allows laying hens to maintain good growth and performance. However, in the process of preparing feed, we must pay attention to rationality and science. Many farmers have many misunderstandings. Here are 6 precautions for chicken cage manufacturers to prepare feed for farmers.


  1. The salt content should not be too high: salt is a raw material that must be added in the process of preparing feed, which can enhance appetite, prevent feather pecking and anus pecking, and cause laying hens to be thirsty.


  1. The amount of stone powder added should not be too high: Stone powder is also a raw material that farmers often add when formulating feed, but farmers need to pay attention to whether the amount of stone powder added in the diet is too much or too little. If the increase is too fast, it will lead to excessive calcium in the blood of laying hens, increase the burden on the kidneys, cause the kidneys to swell, and eventually lead to diarrhea. When formulating feed, Ireminded farmers that the amount of stone powder should be gradually increased with the increase of laying hens' egg production rate. Do not add too much at one time.
  2. The crude protein content should not be too high: protein is an essential nutrient for laying hens. Some farmers believe that adding more crude protein can make hens lay larger eggs and improve the quality of laying hens. This is a wrong idea, because the crude protein is so high in soybean meal. If it is added too much, it will cause incomplete absorption by the human body, stimulate the intestinal tract, accelerate the metabolism, cause the chicken manure to turn yellow and thin, and the feed conversion rate will decrease.



  1. The feed formula should be relatively stable. If the feed needs to be replaced, it is best to adopt a gradual transition method to avoid loss of appetite and digestive disorders.


  1. Prevent mildew of raw materials: It is summer now, high temperature and high humidity can easily lead to mildew of feed. Moldy feed farmers cannot feed laying hens, because the moldy feed contains some toxins, which will stimulate and destroy the intestinal mucosa of laying hens, thereby increasing the permeability of the intestinal mucosa of laying hens and causing diarrhea in laying hens.


  1. Feeding can be added once at night. It can not only prevent chickens from being hungry at night, but also increase the energy intake of laying hens. Maintain a high level of laying hens.


The above is the chicken cage manufacturer to adjust the feed formula of laying hens in 6 ways for everyone. The adjustment of laying hen feed is not too difficult, and farmers can refer to the content in the article. This is also the key knowledge of using the battery layer cages breeding technology to ensure that the laying hens can obtain rich nutrition and maintain a high egg production.


How to reduce the sick rate of laying hens?

How to ensure the egg production rate of chickens in chicken house breeding using layer chicken cages. That must be to pay attention to the prevention of laying hen diseases. The following are some key points and measures for disease prevention of laying hens shared by poultry equipment manufacturers.


  1. The temperature of the chicken house should be suitable. Appropriate temperature can bring good benefits to feed. In addition to adjusting the temperature according to the standard temperature of the chickens, farmers also need to flexibly control the temperature according to the reaction of the chickens. Generally, the temperature in the coop is too low and the chickens will crowd together. When the chickens scream and gather, when the temperature in the house is too high, the chickens are scattered and panting, and when the temperature is suitable, the chickens are evenly distributed. Therefore, farmers must combine to adjust the appropriate temperature, so that chickens can grow healthily.


  1. Appropriate density: laying hens are now raised in poultry battery cage system for laying hens. High breeding density. In order to raise more chickens, some farmers do not pay attention to the standard density and increase the density at will. This is a very wrong decision. If the density is too high, not only will the growth rate of chickens be much slower, but also harmful gases in the air will be increased. Chickens are susceptible to Escherichia coli, coccidia, etc., which can accelerate the epidemic. Therefore, farmers should pay attention to the stocking density in the chicken cage.



  1. The chicken house has peculiar smell and the air is not fresh. There are many laying hens in the chicken house. If farmers do not pay attention to ventilation or manure removal, the chicken house will produce a large amount of harmful gases such as ammonia gas, which will seriously affect the health of chickens and even lead to death. Therefore, it is recommended that poultry farmers use automated manure removal systems and automated ventilation systems. The use of automaticpoultry farming equipment can ensure that the house is properly ventilated without reducing the normal suitable house temperature. In order to reduce the content of harmful gases and dust in the chicken house, ensure the freshness of the chicken house, and ensure the healthy growth of the chickens in the chicken house.


  1. Strengthen the sanitation and disinfection of the chicken house: Regular disinfection of the chicken house can effectively kill the pathogenic microorganisms in the chicken house, which is a key measure to prevent diseases and ensure the health of the chicken house. Therefore, farmers must always put disinfection at home in the first place in the work of chicken disease prevention. It is necessary to do a good job in the disinfection of the three links before the chicks are put into the house, the entire feeding period, and the laying period of the laying hens.


The above poultry equipment manufacturers share some measures and key points to reduce the incidence of chickens in the process of reducing laying hens in cages. Hope to help poultry farmers. For more information on poultry farming, please follow our website.


How to control the temperature control of chicken cages at different stages

In the process of using battery chicken cages to raise chickens, it is very important for breeders to control the temperature of the chicken house and control the temperature of the chicken house at a stage suitable for the growth and development of chickens.


Too high or too low temperatures can have an impact on the healthy growth of chicken flocks, affecting feed intake and activity and, in serious cases, leading to widespread mortality. Therefore, attention must be paid to the control of temperature in the chicken house. Here are the temperature requirements for different growth stages of  chickens.


The first is the brooding period. Poultry farmers know that during the brooding period, the breeder should set the temperature of the coop before entering the brood. Adjust the insulation in the coop before brooding and check that radiators and pipes are not leaking and heating up.



Then comes the temperature control in the poultry battery cages. Different breeds of chickens generally have different temperature requirements, so poultry farmers need to work well in advance to create the right temperature for the house. This will allow the chicks to adapt and grow up healthily.


The final point is the control of the temperature in the chicken house during the rearing period. Good control of the coop temperature and weather changes is to make the appropriate adjustments.


These are the appropriate temperatures required for the different growth stages of chickens in the battery chicken cages rearing process as arranged by the poultry equipment manufacturers for the farmers. The appropriate temperature can promote the healthy development of chickens in chicken farms. So the majority of farmers must pay more attention to the temperature of the chicken house.
