Temperature and humidity control of breeding equipment chick house

Battery cage for broilers

(1) Suitable temperature for laying chickens in laying poultry farming equipment: brooding temperature of egg chicks: 35-33°C for 1-2 days, 33-32°C for 3-7 days, then decrease by 2 to 3°C every week, From 5 to 6 weeks old, about 21 to 18 ℃. Whether the supplied temperature is appropriate, in addition to the thermometer, the behavior of the chicks should also be observed.

(2) Suitable humidity for laying hens: Humidity is closely related to moisture evaporation, heat dissipation and cleanliness of chicken house.


(1) When the temperature is high and the humidity is low, too much water is lost in the chicken rest, which easily leads to dehydration of chickens. In addition, it is easy to induce respiratory diseases because of the dust in the house
caused by dryness.

② When the temperature is low and the humidity is high, the house is cold and humid, and chickens are easy to catch cold, which causes wet bedding and causes gastrointestinal diseases and coccidiosis.

③ When the temperature is high and the humidity is high, the heat in the chicken body is not easy to emit normally, and it is stuffy, the appetite is decreased, the growth is slow, and the resistance is weakened.

It is advisable to keep the poultry house dry to prevent bacterial reproduction and infection, but the relative humidity should not be lower than 40%. Suitable relative humidity: 60%-65% before 10 days old and 50%-60% after 10 days old.
When the humidity is insufficient, sprinkle water on the corridor, ground, surrounding walls or flue in the house, or put a basin on the heat source to evaporate water vapor to increase the humidity in the house; When the humidity is too
high, a moisture-proof layer can be laid on the ground of the chicken house, the temperature in the chicken house can be appropriately increased, ventilation and ventilation can be strengthened, the bedding materials can be changed
frequently in the flat chicken house, the damp feces and bedding materials in the house can be removed in time, and the water dispenser can be prevented from leaking.
