Farmers need to know that poultry farm chicken cage are basic breeding equipment. Also need to know the role of some other breeding equipment components.
1. The method of brooding chicks in the flue of heating equipment is more suitable for small and medium-sized chicken farms. The flue should be constructed of brick or adobe. The large brooding room can use a long flue, and the small brooding room can use a field-shaped enclosure flue. When designing the flue, the diameter of the flue inlet should be larger, and the inlet of the flue gas outlet should gradually become smaller, in order to facilitate the circulation of heating and smoke exhaust, and prevent the flue gas from flowing back.
2. The ventilation equipment must adopt mechanical ventilation to close the chicken house to solve the problem of ventilation and cooling in summer. There are two types of mechanical ventilation: supply air and exhaust air. Supply air ventilation is to use a fan to force fresh air into the chicken house to form a positive pressure in the chicken house and discharge the dirty air; exhaust ventilation is to use a ventilator to forcibly extract the dirty air from the chicken house to form the inside of the chicken house. Negative pressure. Fresh air equipment, chicken breeding equipment is mainly introduced into the chicken house through the air inlet.
3. The water supply equipment can use the hanging tower type automatic drinking fountain to raise chickens. The drinking device is hung from the ceiling with rope and sling. The water inlet on the top is connected to the main water pipe through a hose, and the inlet water flows into the drinking water tray through a control valve, which is sanitary and water-saving.
4. The poultry feeding equipment mainly adopts trough type, and the caged chicken adopts long trough type. Automatic feeding adopts feeders and chain feeders, which can be used for flat chickens or feed buckets. Chickens should use feed trays. The shape of the feed trough affects whether the feed can be fully utilized.
5. Incandescent lamps are currently widely used in lighting equipment. Many chicken farms have installed timers to automatically control the lights on and off instead of manually turning on and off the lights to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the lighting time. It can also be illuminated by a fluorescent tube, which faces the ceiling and reflects light to the ground through the ceiling. The scattered light is soft and uniform.
6. Egg-laying equipment: The double-layer egg box can be used to raise broilers or laying hens. In addition to flat nets, chickens are usually kept in overlapping or stepped cages. Laying hens are basically kept in cages. Raising chickens in chicken cages can make full use of space, increase feeding volume, maintain cleanliness, facilitate epidemic prevention, save feed, keep eggs clean, and facilitate chicken management. In the small breeding cage, a curtain can be set at one end of the cage to cover the chickens. How to control the environmental temperature of chicken raising equipment can create a quiet environment for hens to lay eggs.
