Do the farmers know that the chickens in the season have the highest egg production? As we all know, the egg production of laying hens affects the realization of the production efficiency of laying hens, and it is related to the economic benefits of laying hens. Therefore, every time the laying hens of the layers, the farmers will get considerable income. The authors will come with the farmers to find out the season when the chickens have the highest egg production and the peak time of the laying hens.
1. What is the highest egg yield in the chicken season?
The seasons in which laying hens are relatively high in egg laying are generally in the spring, which means that laying hens produce the most eggs in spring. First, because the spring temperature is appropriate, and second, because the spring sunshine time is gradually lengthened. The suitable temperature of laying hens is affected by many factors. It is generally believed that the suitable temperature of laying hens is 20-25 °C, and between 17-27 °C, it has little effect on the production capacity of chickens, and the feed conversion rate is lower than 16 °C. Decrease, the egg shape becomes smaller than 24 °C (as shown). When the temperature is lower than 10 ° C or higher than 30 ° C, the egg production rate will be significantly reduced.
2. Laying period of laying hens:
Modern laying hens generally have eggs starting at 18 to 19 weeks of age, and egg production rates of 50% at 23 to 25 weeks of age. At the peak of 27 to 29 weeks of age, the egg production rate is greater than 90%, and the highest egg production rate is over 95%. The peak period of egg production generally lasts for about 20 weeks. After 54 weeks of age, the egg production rate is less than 80%, and the egg production rate at the end of the egg production is still 50% to 70%.
It can be seen that in the process of raising chickens in layer chicken cages, the season of high egg production in the year is in the spring, while the peak laying period of laying hens is 27-29 weeks old. Therefore, in the spring, the laying hens should carefully raise the laying hens in order to effectively improve the production efficiency of the laying hens and increase the income of the laying hens. The above is the relevant content of the small series for the farmers to lay out the laying problems of laying hens, I hope to be helpful to everyone.
