Modern poultry battery chicken cages increase the utilization rate of chicken house area. Chickens live in poultry cages. Drinking, feeding, and manure removal are all taken care of. Very conducive to intensive farming.
Automatic poultry farming equipment can better arrange the stocking density. Farmers should not over-bred in order to raise a larger number of chickens. Because if the density is too high, the chicken flocks are crowded, the broiler breeding equipment increases the environmental humidity, the feeding is uneven, the chicken flocks are not well developed, and they are susceptible to diseases and pecking habits. Although the density is small, it is good for the survival and growth of the chicks, but it is not good for heat preservation and uneconomical.
The density should be adjusted according to factors such as the type, breed, brooding method, season, age, and ventilation of the chicks. Automatic breeding equipment cage brooding should be correspondingly sparse as the age increases, the density should be reduced by about 30% at the age of 3 to 4 weeks, and the density should be reduced by about 15% at the age of 5 to 6 weeks.
Egg-type chicks of 1-4 weeks of age occupy a trough position of 2 to 2.5 cm each, and 5-6 weeks of age increase to 5.0 cm each. If a bucket is used, each bucket can feed 35 chicks at the age of 1-4 weeks, and each bucket can feed 25 chickens at the age of 5-6 weeks. One-week-old chicks usually use a vacuum drinker, each of which can provide water for 50 to 70 chickens. If a sink is used, the location of the sink for each 0-6 week-old chick is 1 to 2 cm.
The broilers are suitable for higher density rearing, but it also depends on specific conditions. Generally, on-line flat rearing can be higher in density than on litter, and the ventilation conditions are good, and the density can also be increased appropriately.
The above is the importance of controlling the density of poultry farming. When farmers use modern poultry equipment for breeding, they need to arrange a reasonable density. Hope that farmers can pay attention.
