Chick rearing stage

1. Temperature:

Chicks out of the shell to buy back, the first week of the temperature should be controlled within 34-35 degrees Celsius, from the second week, down 2 degrees Celsius every week, until the sixth week of dewarming stop.The method of heat preservation depends on the number of chickens, chickens can be used in cartons and light bulbs, that is, chickens in the box, hang a 60W or so light bulb, together with the water bottle, trough.

Chickens can be used in brood room, indoor heating with coal furnace, but the use of iron pipe exhaust outdoor. In order to ensure the accuracy of temperature, in addition to inquiring the condition of chicks, indoor thermometer should be hung, together with frequent removal of feces.

Attention should be paid to the rearing and rearing of rural free-range chicken technology

2. Lighting:

The first week of breeding chicks require 24 hours of light, to ensure that the chicks can eat and drink day and night, promote growth and development, after the week to reduce 2 hours, until the night without lights. Light and heat preservation can be combined, carton breeding, such as temperature is not good, can add boiling water in the container wrapped in cloth, placed in the box heating.

3. Density:

From 1 to 14 days of age, 50 to 60 birds per square meter, from 15 to 21 days of age, 35 to 40 birds per square meter, from 21 to 44 days of age, 25 birds per square meter, after 60 days of age 12 birds per square meter. After dewarming, the chickens can be caged, flat or grazing, as long as the density does not exceed the above standards.

4. Drinking water:

The chicks can be fed with water 24 hours after they emerge from the shell. The chicks can be fed with water in a bucket and put clean water in a water cup. The chicks drink cold boiled water for the first 20 days, and can drink well water or tap water in the future. Because the chicks have less feed intake, they are vigorous in bringing out the old. In order to avoid malnutrition, they must participate in 8 ~ 10% concentration of glucose and water-soluble multivitamins in the water within the first 10 days.

Deheated feeding

1. Cage breeding:

The chicken after dewarming is transferred to the chicken cage feeding


its advantages are that it can make full use of space, the chicken does not touch the feces, the disease is less, together easy to catch the chicken, reduce the labor intensity of the keepers. The disadvantage is that the chickens raised for a long time, the stress reaction is larger, and the chest and legs of the chickens are briefly diseased.

2, flat rearing:

Flat raise can be divided into online flat raise and flat raise on the ground, online flat raise the same as cage, but the chicken activity is large, not easy to disease, of course, the cost is higher.

The ground flat formation is to pad wheat grass, rice husk, rapeseed shell on the cement floor pad material, the chicken on the above feeding, can add automatic feeder and drinking line system, its advantage is to save the cost, the chicken chest and legs are not easy to attack disease, due to the large amount of soil mixed chicken activity, pad material does not need replacement, the deficiency is the chicken directly excretion on the pad material, briefly induce some diseases.

3. free-range farming:

That is, put the chickens outdoors in the morning, let them withstand the sun and contact the soil, and together they can find some mineral feed and insects. At noon and evening, the chickens are rushed back to the house to supplement feed.

The advantage of this method is to let the chickens return to nature, the meat quality of the chickens is very good, the price is high, but the disadvantage is that the demand place is large, so the breeding planning is limited.

Treatment of feeding

1. Feeding:

In the production time, a small number of methods are generally used repeatedly, which affects the chicken's hope of feeding, so feeding is not less than 5 times a day in the brood period, and the amount of each feeding is not too much. After the chicken is eaten, the feeder is empty for a period of time before the next feeding.

2. Add food proportion and Add sand:

There is a transition to changing chicken feed, and generally three days is required to complete the process. On day 1, feed 70% raw chicken feed and 30% new chicken feed, on day 2 feed 50% raw chicken feed and 50% new chicken feed, on day 3 feed 30% raw chicken feed and 70% new chicken feed, on day 4 feed all new chicken feed. After 20 days of age, each hundred chickens should be provided with 500 grams of clean fine sand per week. Free range chickens do not need to add sand.

3. Group feeding:

Strong and weak groups and male and female groups should be raised in the end. For cocks, the thickness of bedding should be increased to improve dietary protein and lysine levels. The growth rate of cock is fast, and the requirement of feed nutrition is high. The purpose of increasing nutrition is to meet its demand, so as to be put on the market early.

4, chicken house ventilation:

The ventilation condition of the chicken house is good, especially in summer, we must create conditions to make the chicken house have the opposite flow of air, we install ventilation fans in the chicken house to ensure the smooth ventilation of the chicken house. Even in winter, ventilation should be properly carried out to maintain the fresh air in the house. Ventilation good chicken house, people into the feeling is not stuffy, not dazzling, not pungent.

5. Appropriate density:

If the density is not reasonable, it is difficult to breed high-yield chickens even if other feeding and treatment operations are good. The optimal density per square meter in the growing stage is 8 to 10 birds at 7 to 12 weeks of age, 8 to 6 birds at 13 to 16 weeks of age, and 6 to 4 birds at 17 to 20 weeks of age.

6. Reduce stress:

Daily processing operations should be strictly carried out in accordance with the operating procedures, as far as possible to avoid the disturbance of external bad elements. Don't be rough when catching a chicken. Be prudent when getting vaccinated. Do not wear special clothes suddenly appear in the flock of chickens, in case of explosion, affect the normal growth and development of chickens.
