Chicken breeding equipment includes: heating equipment, ventilation equipment, water supply equipment, feeding equipment, egg collection equipment, manure cleaning equipment, cages, lighting equipment, etc. Just follow the author to learn more about these chicken raising equipment!
Heating equipment for chicken farming equipment
As long as the purpose of heating and heat preservation can be achieved, heating methods such as electric heating, water heating, coal stove, fire kang, and ground kang can be selected. However, it should be noted that coal stove heating is dirty and easy to cause gas poisoning. Attention should be paid to thermal insulation during house design.
Ventilation equipment for chicken farming equipment
Closed chicken coops must be mechanically ventilated. According to the direction of airflow in the house, it can be divided into two types: horizontal ventilation and longitudinal ventilation. Horizontal ventilation refers to the airflow direction in the house perpendicular to the long axis of the chicken house, and longitudinal ventilation refers to a ventilation method in which a large number of fans are concentrated in one place so that the airflow in the house is parallel to the long axis of the chicken house. Research and practice since 1988 have proved that longitudinal ventilation has a good effect, which can eliminate and overcome the phenomenon of small and uneven ventilation and wind speed in the house during transverse ventilation. At the same time, transverse ventilation causes cross infection among chicken houses.
Water supply equipment for chicken farming equipment
From the point of view of water conservation, nipple drinkers are ideal water supply equipment. Choose a water-proof drinker. Nowadays, V-shaped sinks are commonly used for growing chickens and laying hens in cages, which often supply water with running water, but it takes effort to clean the sinks every day. Hanging tower type automatic drinking fountains can be used when raising chicks, which is sanitary and water-saving.
Feeding equipment for chicken farming equipment
Feeding troughs are mainly used, and long troughs are used for caged chickens. This feeding method can also be used when brooding chicks flat, or can be used for feeding in buckets. The shape of the trough has a great influence on the throwing of feed for the chickens. If the trough is too shallow, there will be more feed waste if there is no guard.
Egg collection equipment for chicken farming equipment
Chicken farms with a high degree of mechanization use conveyor belts to automatically collect eggs, which is efficient but has a higher rate of damage. Previous traditional chicken farmers used manual egg collection, which was very slow and had a high rate of broken eggs. So now more and more farms are using automated poultry farming equipment.
