Chicken cage must meet the standard of use

The importance of the quality of the chicken cage is what we need to know. We are familiar with the chicken cage, but we don't know much about the importance of quality. Then we need to understand the importance of the quality of the chicken cage.


The quality of the chicken battery cages is crucial. The size and weight of the standard chicken cage breeder are higher than those of the egg breeder. The requirements for the cage are also higher. Some farms use egg cages to raise broiler breeders, and some use cages that do not meet the standard for cost savings. This will limit the genetic potential of broiler breeders, which in turn affects their health and performance. In general, the length, height, depth and firmness of broiler cages are greater than that of egg cages. The production performance is better for the two-step cage. The specification of each layer is 195×40×40 (cm). 5 grids, two for each grid, easy to manage and observe, and conducive to artificial insemination. The cock cage is required to be tall, so that it has full freedom of movement. Do not let its head rise above the cage to avoid damage to its crown and meat, affecting the quality of semen.



The time and intensity of artificial light supplementation in chicken cages can be based on the data recommended by the breeder management manual, but the distribution of the light source must be balanced. The two-step cage lighting is easy to solve. Generally, the ground is irradiated with a slope of 2 meters, and the light bulb is added with a light-angle reaction cover to ensure that the upper and lower layers of the chicken can receive sufficient strength. The illumination intensity should be based on the illuminometer test data. The illumination intensity obtained by wattage conversion is large, which may cause insufficient illumination or waste.


Chicken cages are an indispensable tool for raising chickens. These kinds of knowledge are also things we must understand. Chicken raising is a process of accumulating farming knowledge.
