How to raise broilers in a farm

Using fully automatic breeding equipment for Nigerian manufacturers is more and more, so if we should raise good broilers to bring us good economic benefits?

The first is that the indoor temperature must be strictly controlled. The room temperature before the human chicks is around 30℃, and the room temperature gradually rises to around 33~35℃ after entering the chicks. It is best to brood broilers in the uppermost layer in cages, with 27.30 broilers per cage. Use a small feed pan to fill up the feed in advance and place it in the cage. Add water to the water tank in advance for pre-warming (consistent with the indoor temperature). After the chicks arrive on the site, quickly put the chicks in the room and place them evenly, 3 to 5 days before brooding. Drinking water should be added: glucose, scutellaria polysaccharides, antibacterial drugs, electrolytic multi-dimensional. The purpose is to restore the strength of the chicks, relieve stress, kill the pathogens that spread vertically, promote the development of the immune organs of the chicks, and improve the disease resistance of the chickens raise in broiler battery cage system

It is best to feed every morning. It is better to feed the automatic feeder 3 times a day. If using a trough, manual feeding must be added evenly. And feed it in time. To prevent chickens from trampling due to hunger, the breeder checks whether there are empty troughs every afternoon and feeds them in time. Technicians should check the feeding situation of the trough every day, and take timely measures if there are too many leftovers. Analyze and judge the possible
situation: there are fewer chickens in the cage. Replenishment should be made in time; whether the nipples are lack of water; whether there are sick chickens in the cage, they should be selected for individual treatment or eliminated in time; whether there is insufficient lighting, timely measures should be taken and adjustments should be made.

The normal water supply shall be guaranteed for 24 hours. Water should be controlled when removing medicine or making seedlings. Check whether the water line is blocked frequently. This is a crucial issue for every chicken farm, and it must be detected and repaired early. The nipple leaks, the water flowing out wastes medicine, and the feces will flow into the trough after diluting the feces into the stool tray. One is waste of feed, and the other is intestinal diseases.


The humidity during brooding should generally be around 65-70%. Afterwards, the humidity will gradually decrease to about 60%. The room of caged broiler chickens (especially the place where the boiler chimney passes) is prone to insufficient humidity, and it is the best way to disinfect the chickens with warm water spray. If the humidity is too high. Increase the temperature and increase ventilation. The brooding temperature is generally 33~35℃. According to this benchmark. As the chickens grow older. It drops two degrees a week, not hot and cold. Technicians and breeders should always pay attention to weather changes, keep abreast of the outside temperature, and appropriately adjust the ventilation volume according to the required temperature. Chickens need a suitable temperature for rapid growth. To grow faster, the temperature must be relatively high.


Ventilation is an important part of the breeding process. Ventilation will begin in the first week. When opening the skylight, part of the side windows should also be opened appropriately, and the sealing should be at a certain angle upwards. While ensuring the temperature, properly increase the ventilation. As the age increases, the ventilation volume gradually increases. When approaching 20 days of age, the longitudinal fan needs to be turned on, because the
ventilation volume of the side window is too small to meet the needs. According to the size of the required ventilation, the outside temperature, the season, and the indoor air quality, a speed governor should be installed. The speed and duration of the fan should vary according to the specific conditions. Don’t have too much air volume, otherwise the chicken will only cause a cold. If the weather changes suddenly and the wind is too strong, the side windows should be
closed temporarily.
