How to prevent heatstroke and cool down in summer chicken cages?

In summer, the weather is hot and the feed intake of the chickens decreases, which affects the laying performance of the laying hens and the laying rate decreases, which directly affects the breeding efficiency of the chicken farm. Here are several ways to raise chickens in summer to prevent heatstroke and cool down.

  • Greening and cooling: Plant creepers and other vines around a certain distance from the chicken house, allowing them to climb on the wall and roof of the chicken house not only to block the strong sunlight, but also due to the air flow between the leaves and the wall , Can also reduce the indoor temperature.
  • Water curtain cooling: The chicken breeding equipment includes water curtain. The water curtain cooling is the use of a fan negative pressure system and the water curtain to artificially reproduce the physical process of natural water evaporation and cooling, which can make the air in the chicken house fresh and the temperature is appropriate. However, the cost of a chicken house with a water curtain to cool down is higher.
  • Fan cooling: Install a certain number of fans at a certain interval in the chicken house. When the temperature in the house rises, turn on the fans, but the noise is louder, which will cause chicken stress.

  • Spray cooling: The spray cooling effect is obvious in the chicken house, but it is easy to increase the humidity, so it is not suitable to be used in high temperature and high humidity places.
  • Thermal insulation layer cooling: enhance the thermal insulation capacity of the roof and walls, reduce the solar radiant heat entering the house; set up sunshade nets or awnings outside the windows to prevent direct sunlight from irradiating the chickens.
  • Improve the cooling of the environment inside and outside the chicken house: insist on removing manure in the house every day to reduce the heat production of manure in the house. Improve ventilation conditions and increase the area of vents and roof skylights. Doing a good job of greening the environment around the chicken house can not only reduce radiant heat, but also absorb carbon dioxide, reduce the density of dust, and purify the air inside and outside the house.
  • Drug cooling: Vitamin C is the best medicine for heatstroke prevention and cooling. It is recommended to double the amount used in summer.

The above is the summary of the cooling method. I hope it can help the chicken farmers learn more experience to raise chickens and create more income. If you have equipment, you can contact the chicken farm equipment suppliers.
