Control the amount of each feeding
The growth level of broilers is not only closely related to the suitability of the living environment, but also closely related to the suitability of feeding and management. At present, many farmers do not pay attention to feeding and management, which affects the growth and development of broilers. These will cause feed waste and reduce the feeding effect. Since most broiler chickens are now kept in chicken cages, it is more conducive to centralized management of farmers. There are several ways to improve broiler feeding effects:
It is not advisable to add too much each time, because chickens have poor digestibility and overeating can easily cause indigestion and affect the utilization rate of feed. The amount of feed used per day should be calculated reasonably and divided equally according to the number of feedings. Wait until the last time you have eaten the ingredients and add them again, or add them after a short period of time. Do not add ingredients, otherwise it will easily cause chicken indigestion, picky eaters, affect the growth and health of chickens, and easily cause feed pollution.
Supply of high-quality feed
Because broilers grow fast and their digestive functions are not very complete. It is necessary to provide a full-price compound feed that is easy to digest and has comprehensive nutrition. Broiler feeding is generally divided into three stages: 0-20 days of age is the brooding period, 21-38 days of age is the middle stage, and 39 days of age to slaughter is the late stage. Different feeds must be supplied according to the stage.
There must be a transition period for refueling
In the breeding process, due to the different nutrients required at different stages, the raw materials sometimes change, so changing the feed is inevitable. If the feed is improperly changed, it will cause greater stress to the broiler. Sudden change of feed may cause digestive disorders of chickens, cause indigestion, diarrhea, etc, and affect the growth and feed utilization of broilers. Practice has shown that if the feed change is carried out gradually, it will basically have no effect on broiler production. When changing the feed, it usually takes 5-7 days. The specific method is as follows: 2/3 of the previous feed (feed being used) + 1/3 of the next feed (feed to be replaced), use 2 days; Use 1/2 of the previous feed + 1/2 of the next feed for 2 days; use 1/3 of the previous feed + 2/3 of the next feed for 2 days, and then change all to the next feed.
