Environmental management of using layer cages to raise chickens in winter

How to carry out environmental management when using layer cages to raise chickens in winter? This is the knowledge that farmers must learn. The temperature in winter is relatively low. There should also be cold air. Therefore, farmers must do a good job in the insulation of the chicken coop.


Pay attention to the temperature of the chicks in time. Newborn chicks are weaker. So always pay attention to the temperature of the chicken house and brooding cage. It hasn’t grown well. Therefore, the temperature will not be adjusted, too high or too low temperature will affect the chicken. The normal temperature of the chicken house should be kept at about 20 to 25 degrees. It adopts fully automatic chicken raising equipment. It can automatically help the chicken coop to maintain a suitable temperature level.



Although the chicken coop uses automated chicken raising equipment. But we can also use some mats to pounce in the chicken coop. Ensure that the temperature of the chicken house will not lose too quickly. Temperature is one of the important environmental factors affecting broiler feeding and management. The right temperature can ensure the egg production rate of the chicken. Know that every time it is lower than 13°C, the egg production rate will drop by 1.5%. When the temperature exceeds 25°C, the weight of the egg will decrease.


 When the ambient temperature rises above 35°C, heat stress will significantly reduce the feed intake and egg production rate, the egg weight will become smaller, the egg shell will become thinner, and the egg breakage rate will increase. Therefore, the layer house should be warm in winter and cool in summer.


The air quality of the chicken house is also a very important factor. If the air is not well circulated, it will easily affect the chickens. Harmful gases in the air can damage the breath of chickens. Cause chickens to suffer from respiratory diseases. Therefore, the chicken house should be ventilated frequently.
