What types of feeding equipment are used in raising chickens?

1. As long as the heating equipment
can achieve the purpose of heating and heat preservation, electric heating, water heating heating, coal stoves and even kang, floor kang and other heating methods can be selected, but it should be noted that the heating of coal stoves is dirty and prone to gas poisoning, so a chimney must be added. . Pay attention to thermal insulation when designing the house. 2. Mechanical ventilation must be used in closed.

2. Chicken houses with ventilation equipment
According to the direction of airflow in the house, it can be divided into two types: horizontal ventilation and vertical ventilation. Lateral ventilation means that the direction of airflow in the house is perpendicular to the long axis of the house, and longitudinal ventilation refers to a ventilation method in which a large number of fans are concentrated in one place, so that the air flow in the house is parallel to the long axis of the house. Research and practice since 1988 have proved that the effect of longitudinal ventilation is better, which can eliminate and overcome the phenomenon of ventilation dead corners and small and uneven wind speed in the house during transverse ventilation, and at the same time eliminate the drawbacks of cross-infection between chicken houses caused by transverse ventilation.

3. Water supply equipment
From the perspective of saving water and preventing bacterial contamination, nipple drinkers are the most ideal water supply equipment, and high-quality water-tight drinkers must be selected. Nowadays, the most common use of cage-bred adult chickens and laying hens is V-shaped sinks, which often run water for water supply, but spend energy every day to scrub the sinks. Pendant-type automatic drinking fountains can be used when raising chicks horizontally, which is both hygienic and water-saving.

4. The feeding equipment
mainly uses the automatic feeder trough, and the caged chickens all use long through troughs. This feeding method can also be used in flat brooding, and can also be used for feeding from hanging buckets. The shape of the feeding trough has a great influence on the throwing of the feed for the chickens. The feeding trough is too shallow and there is no edge protection, which will cause a lot of feed waste.

5. Chicken farms with a high degree of mechanization of egg collection equipment
use conveyor belts to automatically collect eggs, which has high efficiency but a high breakage rate. In October, chicken farmers generally collect eggs by hand.

6. Manure cleaning machine equipment
Generally, chicken farms use manual manure removal on a regular basis, and mechanical manure removal can be used for larger chicken farms.

7. Cages
can be brooded with mesh panels or three-dimensional multi-layer brooders; in addition to flat net feeding, bred chickens are mostly raised in overlapping or stepped brooding cages, and farmers mostly use 60-70-day-old direct transfer eggs Chicken coop. Laying hens are basically caged. At present, there are many domestic manufacturers of chicken cages, which can be purchased according to the actual situation. The area of the chicken cage must be guaranteed.

8. Lighting equipment
In China, ordinary light bulbs are generally used for lighting, and the development trend is to use energy-saving lamps. Many chicken farms install time-controlled switches to replace manual switches to ensure accurate and reliable lighting time.
