Poultry equipment manufacturers believe that chicken cages are divided into cages, layer cages, and broiler cages. How to use chicken cages to raise chickens is very important in the production of chickens. The application methods of several chicken cages are briefly introduced as follows, for the majority of chicken farmers to refer to.
Brooding cages generally breed 0-30 day old chicks. The standard of this cage is generally 187<60<30cm, the growth of the cube structure, the center separation, and the chicken cage can be fed at both ends. There are conditioning nets at both ends of the cage, and the fertile brood is bred. The bottom net of the chicken cage is denser. The growth square is generally three-dimensional according to the structure of the cage. There are three layers or four layers between the layers and the layer. There are two hanging troughs and sinks in the chicken cage for the chickens. The advantage of using chicken cages for eating and drinking is to make full use of the area of the brooding room, to facilitate heat preservation and disinfection, to separate the chickens and chicken manure, to reduce the occurrence of coccidiosis and other diseases, and to improve the survival rate. Generally, the chickens are placed first. 2-3 layers, following the increase of chick age, the area occupied by chicks gradually increased, gradually transferring the upper cage chickens to the lower cages, reducing the breeding density, reducing the stress response of the transfer group, and improving the survival rate. It is also convenient for early insulation.
The chicken cage is also of a human-shaped structure, and the cage is made into a stepped type. The chicken manure is leaked to the bottom of the cage, and there is no need to connect the manure plate. The application method is similar to the three-dimensional rectangular structure.
Layer cages are generally used for laying hens. The planning of cages is generally 187<60<33 and 195<60<33cm divided into four doors and five doors. In the higher temperature and humid place, choose five chicken cages, three chickens in each cage, one single cage and five doors to raise 15 chickens, and one set of chicken cages with six single cages. Type, stepped, and raised 90 chickens.
The layer cage is characterized by thicker steel wire and flexible, and there is an egg tray. The chicken lays eggs in the cage and the egg rolls out of the cage for easy picking. If the wire is too thin, simply cage the cage, so that there must be support bars at the bottom of the cage to prevent the cage from sagging.
In addition, there are battery cage for broilers whose scale is basically the same as that of laying hens.
In short, the planning of chicken cages is very different, and the application methods are basically the same. The use of chicken cages to raise chickens can reduce the amount of chicken movement, reduce the energy consumption of chickens, and facilitate the cultivation of epidemic prevention and disinfection. Layer cage manufacturers advocate that the rational use of chicken cages to raise chickens can reduce the labor intensity of farmers, reduce the cost of farming, and improve the economic benefits of raising chickens.
