How dense is the layer cage to raise chickens?

Nowadays, breeding enterprises and free-range chicken farmers are developing towards intensive breeding and large-scale breeding to give full play to the utilization rate of chicken farms. Because the total number of battery layer cages increases and the breeding density increases, it can be It has the effect of saving costs and increasing profits.

Under normal circumstances, when the space of each adult chicken is not less than 420 square centimeters, the normal eating of the chicken can be satisfied. In addition, chickens in layer cages are free to eat, and the ideal feeding mode is that each chicken has an equal opportunity to eat. But the actual situation is not the case. The feeding density is too high, which will cause the stronger chickens in the chicken cages to eat the fresh feed in the trough. These chickens choose some good, large particles to eat, and wait until the chickens eat 6 -When the chicken is full, the chickens from the back of the poultry chicken cages can be squeezed to the front for feeding.

Over a long period of time, it will cause nutritional imbalance, and individual differences among chickens in cages will be large. In addition, the stocking density of the chicken farm is too high, which is not conducive to the ventilation of the chicken house. When the disease is epidemic, the disease will easily spread.

There is a saying in China that “distance produces beauty”. In fact, raising chickens is the same. A reasonable density can keep the laying hens in a comfortable environment, and can also make farmers have better benefits.
