Farming chicken needs some equipment and materials, the basic requirements are easy to operate, simple design. Easy maintenance, smaller size, easy to move, economical and durable.
Adult chickens are more resistant to the cold, coupled with higher stocking densities. Its own heat enough to maintain the required temperature. Generally do not need heating. The chickens, due to hypoplasia of thermal regulation, poor ability to resist the cold, requiring a higher temperature in the brooding stage, especially in the cold winter and early spring and late autumn have to increase brood room temperature to meet the healthy growth of chickens Basic needs. There are a variety of heating and heating equipment, chicken farms in different regions, chicken farmers according to the local heat source to select a heating device to increase brooding temperature.
Feeding equipment is divided into trough, tray and feeding machine equipment and ancillary equipment.
The trough is suitable for cage chicken. The trough used by chicken requires convenient feeding, no waste of feed, not easy to be polluted by excrement and litter, durable and easy to clean and bend inwards to prevent the chicken from picking the feed overflows the tank.
The chicken farmer with certain economic strength and certain feeding scale should feed the chickens with the automatic feeding machine, which not only helps to reduce the labor intensity of the feeding but more importantly, can control the feeding amount and finish the feeding in a short time , So that each chicken feed evenly, is conducive to the growth and development of large groups of chickens.
Water tanks in drinking equipment, usually made of galvanized sheet metal or plastic, are long strips that hang before the cage or fence and are often used for cages and can also be used for ground level maintenance. Cover with barbed wire when drinking water to prevent chickens from entering the sink. Generally use long-term water supply. Its advantages are simple structure, easy to clean. In addition, there are nipple drinker and cup drinking water equipment commonly found in cages. This drinking water equipment clean, but the water quality and water pressure have certain requirements.
Environmental control equipment mainly refers to the equipment used to exclude excessive water vapor, heat and harmful gases in the chicken coop and to reduce the internal temperature of the house. The equipment has small noise, large air volume, is conducive to ventilating the chicken house, or adding disinfecting water Disinfection to reduce the dust inside the house. Purify the environment inside the house to create a more suitable micro-climate for poultry.Chicken cages include brooder cages, breeding cages, laying cages and broiler cages.
The ladder layer cage has the characteristics of simple structure, convenient operation and maintenance, high optional automation equipment, low input cost and fast revenue. According to different requirements of users, the non-automatic, semi-automatic, low-configuration automation and high-configuration automation equipment Cage. Layered hen cages have the characteristics of high automation and high density, effectively raising the housing and land utilization, reducing the cost of raising, raising the labor productivity and so on.
Broiler raising a high degree of automation, saving land resources, energy conservation, labor costs, reduce medication costs, save feed, with automatic cleaning equipment and ventilation equipment to ensure good air quality inside the house, for the healthy growth of broilers to provide favorable Environmental conditions conducive to disease control and can effectively reduce the outbreak of disease.
Poultry production requires different equipment and facilities, as long as the usage of these devices mastered, will make the farm become more scale and automation.
