In the breeding industry, there are many ways to raise chickens. With the continuous development of the times, more and more farmers tend to use chicken cages to raise chickens because the multi-layer and three-dimensional breeding mode can increase the number of chickens. With the emergence of poultry farming equipment, flat chicken farms have become rare. What are the differences and advantages of cage culture?
1 Cage culture is more than flat culture. Flat culture refers to the cultivation on the ground. The ground area of the chicken coop can be used to raise as many chickens as possible, and the density is relatively small. The chicken coop can only raise more chickens unless it is very large, but cage culture is different. Cage culture is to raise chickens in cages, usually in multi-layer cage culture. The cages are stacked one on top of the other. The area above the chicken coop can be used together to raise more chickens, and the cage culture method can raise more than three times more chickens in the same chicken coop area than flat culture.
2. Chicken battery cages rearing can reduce the incidence of some diseases. The flat rearing method is adopted to raise chickens. The chickens only contact the ground directly, so the feces produced by the chickens are also directly on the ground. Farmers cannot clean up at any time. The chickens are easy to contact the feces and the probability of contracting diseases will increase. However, if cage rearing is used to raise chickens, the feces produced by the chickens will fall directly onto the feces belt or the ground with the cages, and the chickens will not directly contact the feces, which is beneficial to the control of diseases.
3. In the past, farmers used to raise chickens in a flat manner. There was no fixed place between the chickens. The range of activities was relatively large. Farmers were also difficult to feed chickens. Once the feed intake of chickens decreased again, it was impossible to determine which chicken was the chicken. Moreover, the range of activities was large, the consumption of physical energy was large, and the feed cost would pass. However, cage rearing was divided into one cage and one cage. Each cage had a fixed number of chickens and feed intake position. Therefore, the farmers could not only feed conveniently, but also observe the feed intake and health status of each chicken. The chickens moved within the cage.
4. The cage rearing method is more efficient than the flat rearing method in raising eggs and broilers. With the flat rearing method for raising chickens, the farmers need to do all kinds of work by themselves, such as cleaning dung, feeding and picking up eggs, etc. These heavy tasks need to be done manually, and the cost will increase virtually due to the large number of farmers raising eggs. With caged chickens, farmers can completely free their hands, because the continuous development of chicken raising equipment now makes it possible for many equipment to automatically clean dung, feed and pick up eggs. Although the price of the equipment is higher than that of employing human resources, the efficiency is high, and the equipment can be used for more than ten years. On average, the cost is actually reduced.
