How can farmers reduce the cost of raising chickens

When the chickens were first raised, the farmers had to pay a relatively high cost. In particular, poultry breeding equipment is also needed to raise chickens. So now many farmers are looking for ways to efficiently raise chickens and reduce costs. This can reduce some investment. Make the efficiency of the chicken farm better.




1. The peak egg production of high-yield chickens raised by farmers generally lasts for more than 4 months. Therefore, farmers need to pay attention to high-level feed nutrition should be appropriately extended to maintain time. In the breeding process, we can adjust the feed formula in time according to the growth stage. After the high yield, farmers can reduce the amount of high-protein chicken feed according to the decline of the laying rate of the laying hens to avoid nutrient waste.


2. Farmers should pay attention to the feeding method when feeding. Should choose the method of giving less frequently. Or use automated poultry feeding equipment. The purpose of this is to let the chickens eat the chicken feed in the trough as much as possible, so as to prevent excessive feed in the trough, which will cause mold and deterioration, resulting in waste. In addition, farmers should also pay attention to the chicken feed and The storage of feed ingredients to avoid rats, etc.


3. In the stage of raising chicks, farmers will cut their beaks in order to avoid bad habits such as habit among the chickens. In addition, cutting the beaks can also save feed and prevent the beak from being too long to peck out the feed. Chickens with constant beaks can save about 6% of chicken feed, and experienced workers can be arranged to beaked at 7-9 days of age for laying hens.


4. Farmers should pay close attention to the chicken flocks during normal feeding and management. If diseased chickens, weak chickens, low-yielding chickens, or discontinued chickens are found, they should be eliminated in time. Some farmers are often unable to make the determination to eliminate them, and as a result, chicken feed is wasted.
