The use of chicken cages to raise chickens is a popular chicken raising method in the chicken industry. The chicken cages are raised in a multi-layer cage. The breeding density is large and the number is large. It is very popular among farmers, using chicken cages to raise chickens, and which are Need to pay attention to the chickens to pay attention to the matter, only pay attention to all aspects of feeding points, scientific and reasonable breeding can be able to raise the higher yield of the chickens, the following authors to tell the majority of farmers to use the layer chicken cage in spring Chicken’s precautions.
Improve calcium utilization, pay attention to the addition of phosphorus and vitamins
The absorption of calcium by chickens is actually affected by other factors. In the past, there is a ratio of calcium to phosphorus. Only when the ratio of calcium to phosphorus is balanced, can calcium be better utilized. Generally, the range of 2:1-1:1 is higher in the horizontal absorption rate. At the same time, it is also necessary to pay attention to vitamin supplements (super concentrated cod liver oil containing vitamin D) to promote the absorption of calcium in the small intestine, and can promote the normal calcification of the bone marrow, which is conducive to improving eggshell quality and egg production rate.
Calcium feed and other feeds are fed separately
Separate feeding can maximize the use of calcium and avoid the waste of calcium. In the morning, low-calcium feed is fed to the stage where calcium demand is low, and calcium material is supplemented in the afternoon when calcium demand is large. This can not only improve the pertinence of calcium supplements, but also increase the intake of other nutrients and reduce the waste of calcium. If you are eating ad libitum, you can let the chicken eat the feed in the trough after 2 o’clock in the afternoon. When the chicken has a certain appetite half an hour, spread the calcium material to be evenly scattered in the trough. Eat: If you are feeding regularly, feed the calcium material before feeding in the afternoon, then feed the full-price feed, which will ensure that the calcium supplement is completely consumed. Either way, you must ensure that all chickens can eat calcium at the same time.
Summary: The main points of calcium supplementation in laying hens are to increase the utilization of calcium feed and avoid waste. These methods are mainly used to match the physiological characteristics of laying hens and to supplement calcium when calcium is needed. The above calcium supplementation time is the time for calcium supplementation, otherwise the laying hen may consume its own calcium to lay eggs, affecting the health of the hen and the life of the laying hen.
