What are the hazards of the poor chicken breeding environment

The environment of the chicken house is very important for the growth of the chicks. The growth and health of the chicks has been affected by the environment. A bad environment may cause the chicks to develop diseases in batches, especially now that many farmers use closed chicken houses. The breeding density is high, and many chickens are in one poultry farming equipment. Environmental issues are more important. Then, what are the harms to the chicken flocks caused by a bad environment.




1. The hazard performance of low temperature: The chicks are just born and have poor resistance ability. Higher temperatures are needed to ensure their health. If the brooding house temperature of the breeder at this time is too low, it will cause the death of a large number of chicks, and the chicks will show unkempt fluff. , And because of the low temperature, they will be piled together, and the chicks will have drooping wings and chirping. If the low temperature lasts for a long time, it can cause a large number of deaths.

2. High temperature: Although the growth of chicks requires a relatively high temperature, the continuous high temperature will also affect the health of the chicks. Temporarily high temperature, the chicks have a certain ability to adapt and adjust, but if the farmers keep letting If the chicks are in a high temperature environment, the body temperature regulation mechanism in the chicks group cannot be resisted. If the temperature exceeds a certain limit, the chicks will die. Generally, the high temperature affected chickens will open their mouths and pant, and they will stay away from the hotter places. Will also greatly decrease, and the need for water will greatly increase, and the chicks continue to die. Even if there is no large number of deaths, due to high fever, the growth and development of chicks will be stagnated due to the decline in feed intake, and other diseases can also be induced.

3. Hypoxia or carbon dioxide poisoning: Like a closed chicken house for breeding chicks, if the farmers do not pay attention to timely and reasonable ventilation, it is easy to cause the lack of oxygen in the chicken house and lead to carbon dioxide poisoning. The method to check hypoxia and carbon dioxide accumulation is the breeder You can choose to light a candle 10 cm away from the bottom of the chicken coop. If the candle is not easy to ignite or extinguishes quickly, it means that the chicken coop is lack of oxygen or carbon dioxide accumulation.

4. Ammonia: The chicken house produces a lot of manure every day. If the farmers do not clean up the manure in time, the manure will produce a lot of ammonia. When the concentration of ammonia exceeds 25ppm, it can irritate the eyes and cause conjunctiva. Inflammation and corneal ulcers, and can make chickens susceptible to respiratory diseases; when the concentration reaches 80ppm, it can reduce the appetite of chickens, lose weight, and can induce a variety of diseases, causing mass deaths of chickens.
