If the chicken’s cockscomb or meatlooper appears white, then the body consumes too much, usually the lack of nutrition of the resting chickens. If the chicken cocks and droop color is yellow, there may be malfunctioning or parasitic diseases. If the cockscomb or meat droplet is purple, then the flocks have fowlpox or fowl cholera.

If there is a loss of food in a flock, it may be due to a sudden change in feed or a choking of the flock. If the flock does not eat, it indicates that the flock is in a seriously ill condition. If the flock appears abnormal food, it indicates that the chickens feed undernutrition or lack of minerals or trace elements.

3. observe the flock’s mental state. Healthy flocks that grow generally behave in a lively and responsive manner. If you find that some chickens are gloomy, puffy, with drooping wings and breathing sounds, they may be precursors of the disease.

Take the disinfection regularly: a reasonable disinfection of the chicken coop pathogenic microorganisms can be killed to reduce the spread of bacteria, which can reduce the incidence of disease, another reasonable disinfection to create a good health conditions of the shed have a very important impact on the immune effect Only when the flocks and poultry houses are hygienically prepared and the defense mechanism is active and active are vaccines vaccinated to produce a strong immune response。

It is desirable for broiler and turkeys to obtain a high level protein, while is not necessary or advisable for egg laying chickens of feeding chickens.

The Growing Feeds of Feeding Chicken

At the age of 10 weeks, the starter feed chould be replaced by a grower feed. The Growing feeds are usually contains 15%-16% essential proteins and are used to maintain from growth to adult. The higher protein content is 20%  which is recommended for growing chickens of feeding chickens.

Layer Feeds of Feeding Chickens

Layer feeds are used to offer the ideal nutrition for hen laying eggs for energy consumption. Layer feeds consists of 16% protein and have to increase certain of  Calcium.For the good development of egg shell, layer feeds should be fed sufficient fodder about 18 weeks of age.

Why to Choose Automatic Chicken Cage to Raise for Poultry Farm?

With the large-scale and  intensified development of poultry farm, more and more poultry farm chickens have be raised in automatic cages, because automatic chicken cages have the following advantages:

(1) Raise feeding density. The density of chickens in cage farming is three times as big as the density of breeding farming. For example, 17 or more laying hens can be raised per square meter;

(2) Save feed. Feeding layer chickens in the automatic layer cage system have less exercise, less energy consumption, thus reducing fodder waste. The implementation of artificial insemination,it can reduce the proportion of cock breeding;

(3) Chicken can not touch the feces,  which is conducive to the prevention of  flock epidemic ;

(4) Eggs are relatively clean, for the adoptation of automatic egg grading and cleaning equipment.

However, many farmers do not know the processing technology of poultry cages, how to choose good quality and long life cage? In the automated chicken raising equipment, it is important to choose good quality automatic chicken cage. There are currently four kinds of surface processing technology of chicken cages in the market for chicken farmers to choose:

  1. Cold galvanized. Cold galvanized, also known as galvanized. With the thin coating of it, cold galvanized has the advantages of smooth surface and high brightness. but it generally rust when 2-3 years , 6-7 years of life, cold galvanized can be divided into Color zinc or white zinc, the effect is similar.
  2. Hot dip galvanized. Hot-dip galvanizing, also known as hot-dip zinc, galvanized layer thickness, usually more than 80μm considered eligible, generally not easy to rust, high corrosion resistance, generally can be used 15 years – 20 years, but the disadvantage is galvanized zinc bath Uneven, causing more burr, the need for manual processing. Galvanized cages are the first choice for automated farming, but the general price will be higher than the other.
  3.  Spraying cages, which is the powder coating by high-pressure static electrostatic attraction to the cage, in the middle of the cage and paint to form a highly corrosion-resistant phosphate coating, but spraying the chicken cages easier to stick chicken manure, a long time also Easily aging off, this cage is relatively rare in the market, the market is relatively small.
  4. Zinc alloy chicken cage. The use of zinc-aluminum alloy wire welding directly, no longer do any post-processing. Such cages welding requirements are relatively high, the welding is not good, the solder joints will rust, if the master the good life expectancy of more than 10 years, most imported chicken equipment is used in this type of mesh.
