Brooding Stage


1. Temperature:


After the chicks are hatched and bought back, the temperature in the first week should be controlled within 34-35°C, and from the second week onwards, the temperature should drop by 2°C every week until the sixth week, when the temperature is removed. The method of heat preservation depends on the number of chickens. If there are fewer chickens, cartons and light bulbs can be used, that is, put the chicks in the box, hang a light bulb of about 60W, and put chicken drinker and chicken feeder together.

Most chickens can be brooded in a brooding room, and the indoors are heated with coal stoves, but the soot is exhausted outdoors using iron pipes. In order to ensure the accuracy of the temperature, in addition to checking the situation of the chicks, a thermometer should be hung indoors to remove feces frequently.


2. Lighting:


In the first week of brooding, 24-hour light is required to ensure that the chicks can eat and drink day and night to promote growth and development, and then reduce it by 2 hours a week until the lights are not turned on at night. Illumination and heat preservation can be carried out in combination. For brooding in cartons, if the temperature is not good, boiled water can be added to the container and wrapped with cloth, and placed in the box to heat.


3. Density:


1-14 days old, 50-60 birds/square meter, 15-21 days old, 35-40 birds/square meter, 21-44 days old, 25 birds/square meter, 60 days old and later, 12 birds/square meter. The chicks after de-heating can be raised in cages, flat or free-range, as long as the density does not exceed the above standards.


4. Drinking water:


The chicks can drink and feed 24 hours after hatching. Put the brooding material in the chicken feeder to allow them to eat freely, and put clean water in the chicken drinker at the same time. Drink cold boiled water for the first 20 days of brooding, and then you can drink well water or tap water. Because the chicks have less feed intake and vigorous metabolism, in order to avoid malnutrition, 8-10% glucose and water-soluble polysaccharide must be added to the water within the first 10 days. vitamins.



Room temperature feeding


1. Cage:


The advantages of transferring the dewarmed chicks to the adult chicken cages are that the space can be fully utilized, the chickens do not touch the feces, the disease is less, and it is convenient to catch the chickens and reduce the labor intensity of the breeders. The disadvantage is that the chickens that have been raised for a long time have a greater stress response, and the breasts and legs of the chickens are prone to lesions.


2. Flat  raising:


Flat raising can be divided into online flat raising and ground flat raising. Online flat raising is the same as cage raising, but chickens have a lot of activity and are not easy to get sick. Of course, the cost is higher. Ground level growing is to put wheat straw, rice husks, rapeseed husks and other litter on the concrete floor, and put the chickens on it to raise. The amount is large, and the litter does not need to be replaced. The disadvantage is that the chicks defecate directly on the litter, which is easy to induce some diseases.




Immediately put the chickens outside in the morning, let them be exposed to the sun, touch the soil, and find some mineral feed and insects at the same time, drive the chickens back to the house at noon and evening to supplement the feed, the advantage of this method is to let the chickens return to nature , the meat quality of the chicken is very good, and the price is high. The disadvantage is that the demand is large, so the breeding plan is limited. This method is suitable for a small amount of free-range farming by farmers.



Feeding treatment


1. Feeding:


During the laying period, a small amount of multiple times is generally used to affect the feed intake of the chickens, so the feeding period is not less than 5 times a day during the brooding period, and the amount of feeding each time should not be too much. After the chickens have finished eating, the chicken feeder is left empty for a period of time before adding the next feed.


2. Refueling and adding sand:


There is a transition when changing chicken feed, and it usually takes three days to complete the process. Feed 70% original chicken feed and 30% new chicken feed on the first day, feed 50% original chicken feed and 50% new chicken feed on the second day, feed 30% original chicken feed and 70% new chicken feed on the third day, and feed on the second day Feed all the new chicken feed for 4 days. After 20 days of age, 500 grams of clean fine sand will be provided per 100 chickens per week, and the chickens do not need to be added with sand.


3. Group feeding:


The final machine should be divided into strong and weak groups and raised in male and female groups. For roosters, it is necessary to increase the thickness of litter and increase the level of dietary protein and lysine. Roosters grow faster and have higher nutritional requirements for feed. The purpose of increasing nutrition is to meet their needs so that they can be marketed earlier.

4. Ventilation of the chicken house:


The chicken house has good ventilation conditions, especially in summer, it is necessary to create conditions to make the chicken house have convective wind. Properly ventilate even in winter to keep the air in the house fresh. In a well-ventilated chicken house, people will not feel stuffy, dazzling or pungent after entering.


5. Appropriate density:


If the density is not reasonable, it will be difficult to breed high-yielding flocks even if other feeding practices are good. In the case of plane rearing during the rearing period, the suitable density per square meter is 8 to 10 at the age of 7 to 12 weeks, 8 to 6 at the age of 13 to 16 weeks, and 6 to 4 at the age of 17 to 20 weeks.


6. Reduce stress:


The daily processing work should be carried out in strict accordance with the operating procedures, and the disturbance of external adverse factors should be avoided as much as possible. Do not act roughly when catching chickens. Be cautious when vaccinating. Do not wear special clothes and suddenly appear in the flock to prevent the flock from blowing up and affect the normal growth and development of the flock.
