When encountering hot weather. The chicken coop will be damp and hot. Excessive humidity in the chicken house will affect the growth and production of chickens, especially the production performance of laying hens. This requires farmers to do a good job in cooling down, and pay attention to prevent the chicken coop from getting wet. Let’s share some tips for reducing the humidity of chicken farming equipment for you to learn together.
In order to avoid dampness in the equipment. Farmers should pay attention to choosing a high and dry place when choosing a site. Because this is conducive to drainage and waterlogging prevention, better ventilation and a quieter environment.
It is now a multi-layer cage. If the drinker leaks, the chickens below will get wet. If the drinking fountain is found to be leaking, it should be sealed or replaced according to the specific situation. The floor of the chicken house should be cleaned and dried in time to solve the unfavorable factors caused by water vapor.
Maintain proper stocking density. Breeding equipment should appropriately reduce the breeding density in summer. If the stocking density is still high in summer, it is not only not conducive to heat dissipation between the flocks, but also detrimental to the moisture prevention of the flocks.
Strengthen the ventilation of breeding equipment. The temperature is very high in summer. Farmers should pay attention to ventilation and cooling. Generally speaking, the temperature of the chicken house should not be higher than 25°C, and attention should be paid to the occurrence of heat stress in chickens. In addition, ventilation should be strengthened during the summer breeding process to avoid the accumulation of moisture in the chicken house, which may cause excessive humidity and affect health.
Prevent disease. Prevent and treat common diseases in summer and diseases that are easily caused by humidity, and avoid diseases caused by excessive humidity.
The above are the moisture-proof measures shared by the suppliers and manufacturers of the automated chicken cages. In the use of chickens, these methods can effectively reduce the dampness of the chicken house. I also hope that these tips can help farmers.
