Little knowledge of breeding equipment

As the name suggests, chicken raising equipment is a special machine for raising chickens. In order to let everyone better use the equipment, we will introduce you to the function of the chicken raising equipment. I hope that through the introduction of the editor, you can have a deeper understanding of the use of this equipment.

   1. The chick brooding method of heating equipment flue is more suitable for small and medium-sized chicken farms. The flue should be constructed of brick or adobe. The large brooding room can use a long flue, and the small brooding room can use a field-shaped enclosure flue. When designing the flue, the diameter of the flue inlet should be larger, and the inlet of the flue gas outlet should gradually become smaller, in order to facilitate the circulation of heating and smoke exhaust, and prevent the flue gas from flowing back.

  2. The ventilation equipment must adopt mechanical ventilation to close the chicken coop to solve the problem of ventilation and cooling in summer. There are two types of mechanical ventilation: supply air and exhaust air.

  3. The water supply equipment can be used to raise chickens with a hanging tower type automatic drinking fountain. The drinking device is hung from the ceiling with rope and sling. The water inlet on the top is connected to the main water pipe through a hose, and the inlet water flows into the drinking water tray through a control valve, which is sanitary and water-saving.


  4. The feeding equipment mainly adopts trough type, and the caged chicken adopts long trough type. Automatic feeding adopts feeders and chain feeders, which can be used for flat chickens or feed buckets. Chickens should use feed trays. The shape of the feed trough affects whether the feed can be fully utilized.


   5. Incandescent lamps are currently widely used in lighting equipment. Many chicken farms have installed timers to automatically control the lights on and off instead of manually turning on and off the lights to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the lighting time.


  6. ​​Egg-laying equipment: Double-layer egg boxes can be used to raise broilers or laying hens. In addition to flat nets, chickens are usually kept in overlapping or stepped cages. Laying hens are basically kept in cages. Raising chickens in chicken cages can make full use of space, increase feeding volume, maintain cleanliness, facilitate epidemic prevention, save feed, keep eggs clean, and facilitate chicken management.
