Cangzhou Phoenix Breeding Equipment Co., a company that specializes in providing the poultry farming equipment and other products and services. Do you know about automatic chicken farming equipment? This article will give you a specific introduction to the content of this aspect. Let us take a look at "Where are the main applications of chicken farming equipment?"


It is necessary to have automatic chicken husbandry equipment and a modern farming concept, so that a good modern chicken farm can be created. Modern chicken farming machinery and equipment include: heating machinery, the ventilation system equipment, the drinking system the feeding equipment , egg collection equipment, the lighting machinery and so on. The modern breeding concept includes: establish awareness of improved breeds, brooding is equally important, pay attention to daily management, strengthen disinfection, pay attention to the feed quality and use less medicine, etc. However, the farming machinery is a broad term. It does not just refer to machinery in the chicken industry, including forage processing machinery and feeding machinery. Generally speaking, the degree of mechanization of chicken husbandry equipment is related to the production scale of the chicken farm

The larger the scale of the chicken farm, the higher the requirements for the mechanization of  chicken raising equipment; the smaller the scale, the lower the degree of mechanization of the chicken raising equipment, even manual labor. According to the current market situation, large-scale chicken farms can be built with a highly mechanized production mode of chicken husbandry equipment, and the remaining small and medium-sized chicken farms should adopt a semi-mechanized production mode of chicken raising equipment. But no matter how mechanized the poultry raising equipment is, it needs certain mechanical equipment. The emergence of chicken husbandry machinery and equipment has brought great convenience to the majority of chicken farmers. Chicken raising, where the chicken husbandry equipment is mainly used, saves a lot of manpower and financial resources.

Mechanized chicken farming equipment currently adopts two types of chicken farming equipment: flat farming and cage farming. There are mainly two types of chicken houses: Semi-open chicken coop and closed.

1. Semi-open chicken coop


The internal environment of the chicken house is adjusted by opening windows or rolling shutters, relying on natural ventilation in spring and autumn, closing windows or rolling shutters in summer and winter, opening air inlets and fans for longitudinal ventilation, and having dual functions of open and closed chicken houses .

2. Closed chicken house


There are two types of chicken houses with windows and no windows. This type of chicken house mainly adjusts the internal environment of the chicken house through manual and intelligent equipment. Ventilation depends entirely on fans. In summer, many farmers increase the cooling pads ventilation system; in winter, they do not supply heating, but rely on the heat emitted by the chickens themselves; the lighting in the chicken house depends on lighting equipment.


Advantages and disadvantages comparison


1. Semi-open chicken coop


Advantages: If the natural conditions such as temperature and light are suitable for the growth and egg production of the chickens, the half opening chicken house can use the natural conditions; if the natural conditions are bad and not suitable for the growth and egg production of the chickens, it can be completed by equipment. For example, when the temperature is high in summer, the fans and cooling pads can be activated to cool down. If the temperature is low, heating equipment can be activated to raise the temperature; the cost is moderate and energy is saved.


Disadvantages: Poor sealing, the effect of longitudinal ventilation cooling is not as good as that of closed chicken houses; in the northern part of North China, the temperature is low in winter, and the effect of heat preservation is poor.

2. Closed chicken house


Advantages: good thermal insulation effect, some unfavorable natural factors such as strong wind, high temperature and high heat, severe cold, heavy rain and other factors will not have a particularly large impact on the chicken flock; artificially control the light, control the age of the flock's sexual maturity, and stimulate egg production; the airtightness is good, which can basically prevent the way of natural vector transmission of diseases; the risk of various stresses is reduced; in cold seasons, the heat dissipation of the chicken body is reduced, and the feed remuneration is relatively high; it is better to carry out forced moulting and feed feeding, etc.


Disadvantages: large investment in construction and equipment, ventilation, lighting, drinking water, etc. Are all dependent on electricity, once a power outage will cause unpredictable losses, so the reliable backup power supply must be provided; the stocking density is high, and the risk of infectious diseases in chicken flocks is higher .


Management focus comparison


1. Open chicken coop


Ventilation management: If the outside climate is suitable, natural wind can be used instead of mechanical ventilation; ventilation control should be adjusted according to the target temperature around the house. If the temperature inside the house is between 21°C and 23°C, the temperature difference between the front and rear of the house should be considered. The mixed ventilation method of longitudinal ventilation + horizontal transitional ventilation is often used; if the temperature in the house is much higher than the policy, longitudinal ventilation is used. In winter, do not turn on the fan or turn on the ceiling two fans, mainly for heat preservation.

Air inlet adjustment: when longitudinal ventilation is required, all the wind is required to enter from the front of the chicken house. When the number of fans is fixed, the closer the air inlet area is to the cross-sectional area of the chicken house, the greater the wind speed in the house; , All the wind is required to enter from the small windows on both sides of the chicken house, which requires a higher static pressure inside the house to spray the cold air from the outside to the ceiling and mix with the hot air on the roof.

2. Closed chicken house


Ventilation management: Each chicken house needs to have two obviously independent ventilation systems (minimum ventilation system and summer ventilation system), regardless of the temperature, forced ventilation is required; in confined spaces, harmful gases are mainly carbon dioxide, and a balance between heat preservation and ventilation is required Contradictory; the ventilation capacity needs to be calculated according to the volume of the chicken house (length x width x average height of the chicken house, the value obtained is also the amount of air processed to meet the best air quality requirements of the chicken flock). Ventilation in summer needs to be used with cooling pads, and ventilation management in winter requires minimum ventilation to meet the gas exchange every 8 minutes; because the harmful gas is mainly carbon dioxide, the fans are turned on from the lower row, and at least 1-2 fans must be turned on in winter for protection the quality of air.

Air inlet adjustment: For closing chicken houses, the ventilation effect is related to the size of the air inlet, not the size of the air outlet. Therefore, regardless of horizontal ventilation or vertical ventilation, the fan has the ability to let the air pass through the chicken house evenly; if the chicken if the negative pressure in the house is insufficient, the air will fall directly to the ground after entering the house, and the litter will become wet, so the closer to the fan, the worse the air quality.


In short, whether it is a semi-open chicken house or a closing chicken house, as a breeder, you need to pay close attention to environmental changes in the chicken house to ensure the comfort and safety of the chickens.
