Winter turns to spring, the seasons change, the outside temperature changes and the "late spring cold" phenomenon is common, which can easily cause more stress to the chickens and pose more challenges to the scientific ventilation and biosecurity system construction of the chicken house. This reminds our breeding friends that we must attach great importance to seasonal management and do a good job in various protective work.

1. Scientifically proportioned nutrition

Appropriately reduce the proportion of corn and other cereal energy feeds in the laying hen feed. During the peak production period of laying hens, increase the calcium and phosphorus content in the feed, thereby improving the quality of eggshells. It is recommended to add active poly-calcium formate to the feed for supplementation. Calcium, high calcium content, and high absorption rate.

Breeding friends can contact local mobile laying hen supermarkets to purchase special feed with guaranteed quality, or scientifically adjust the feed formula with expert guidance to allow the chickens to eat scientifically and ensure egg quality.

2. Adjust ventilation to reduce stress

①Adjust ventilation and reduce the temperature difference

The suitable temperature range for laying hens is 18-25°C. The ventilation volume adjustment of the laying hen house in spring must always be based on the suitable temperature of the chickens. On this basis, the minimum ventilation volume in the house must be adjusted according to different external temperatures.

When the outside temperature drops and the chicken house temperature drops to 18°C, an intermittent ventilation method with a cycle of 5 minutes can be adopted to ensure that the house temperature is not lower than 18°C.

At the same time, you can also judge whether the ventilation volume is appropriate by observing the reaction of the chickens. If the chickens show symptoms such as neck shrinkage and runny nose, the ventilation volume should be reduced; if symptoms such as mouth opening and wheezing appear, the ventilation volume should be increased.

②Tightly sealed and careful planning

Insulate the air inlet, exhaust outlet, egg belt inlet and outlet, front and rear doors, water curtains, door panels, manure trenches, roof color steel plates, etc. of the chicken house;

Pay attention to the daily weather forecast and formulate ventilation plans in time according to weather changes.


③ Carry out safety prevention and control, and prohibit wild cats, wild dogs, etc. from entering the chicken house and causing stress.

3. Immunize and raise antibodies in time

Strengthen the immunization work against avian influenza, Newcastle disease, chicken infectious rhinitis, etc.; vaccinate the chickens well so that the chickens can produce sufficient antibodies and enhance the chickens' resistance to infectious diseases. Scientifically formulate an immunization plan, and in addition, strengthen supervision, accurate diagnosis, and rational use of drugs.

Small and medium-sized farmers can contact nearby mobile laying hen supermarkets to obtain high-quality professional immunization services. Combined with antibody testing and microbial testing, they can have a more accurate grasp of the health of the chickens and the environmental conditions inside the house, so that the chickens can To better exert production performance, it is recommended to add Eucommia leaf extract to the feed to help improve the anti-stress ability of laying hens and quickly restore egg production rates.

4. Careful feeding promotes health

Ensure high-quality feed quality through the feeding method of feeding less and more often. During daily inspections, pay more attention to the phenomenon of leakage and leakage of drinking water to avoid contamination of feed and the occurrence of mildew, and promptly dispose of waste materials to reduce the burden on the liver, protect the health of the liver and gallbladder, extend the peak egg production period, and increase the egg production rate of laying hens. It is recommended that Bile acid is added to the feed to detoxify laying hens and protect the liver!

During the critical season of winter and spring, breeding friends need to start from multiple aspects such as feed nutrition, chicken house management, immune testing, etc., while enhancing the quality of the chickens, and minimizing the adverse effects caused by various stress factors, so that the chickens can The group will produce more eggs and produce good eggs to ensure breeding efficiency.

In early spring, when the outside temperature is low, the chicken body consumes more energy to keep out the cold, so feed consumption increases by about 10% compared to other seasons.

When raising chickens in early spring, due to the reduced resistance of laying hens, special attention should be paid to epidemic prevention and disease prevention, and regular vaccinations should be carried out. According to the actual situation, preventive drugs can be fed regularly and planned, and the content of vitamins and trace elements in the feed can be appropriately increased to enhance the physical fitness of laying hens and improve disease resistance.

2. Warmth and ventilation

When raising chickens in early spring, the breeding density should be appropriately increased, doors and windows should be closed, straw curtains should be hung, and warm water should be consumed to keep out the cold. As the doors and windows of the chicken house are closed and the ventilation volume is reduced, the concentration of harmful gases such as ammonia and carbon dioxide accumulate in the chicken house and the ammonia and carbon dioxide produced by the fermentation of chicken manure increases, which can easily induce respiratory and other diseases in laying hens. Therefore, when raising chickens in early spring, it is necessary to properly handle the relationship between ventilation and warmth, and promptly remove feces and debris in the chicken house to ensure fresh air in the chicken house. When the weather is sunny and warm at noon, windows should be opened for ventilation to make the air in the house fresh.

3. Disinfection and dehumidification

In early spring, the temperature is lower, and the frequency of bacterial activity decreases, but the resistance of the chicken body is also generally weakened. If disinfection is ignored, it can easily lead to disease outbreaks and cause heavy losses. Therefore, strict disinfection work must be done. When chickens are raised in early spring, the ventilation in the house is small and the evaporation of water is reduced. If the disinfection is not performed properly, the humidity in the chicken house will increase, creating good conditions for the proliferation of bacteria and parasites. Therefore, when raising chickens in early spring, management must be strengthened and attention must be paid to keeping the environment in the chicken house clean and dry.

4. Take good precautions against epidemics

In early spring, due to the low temperature, the doors and windows of the chicken house are tightly closed, and the ventilation volume is reduced, which makes the air inside the house dirty and the concentration of harmful gases is too high, which leads to the massive reproduction of bacteria and parasites and the decline in egg production performance. Therefore, it is necessary to strengthen management and pay attention to the inside of the chicken house. Keep it dry and clean. Damaged sinks and waterline drinking nipples that leak should be repaired in time. Try not to splash water on the floor inside the house.

Carry out corresponding immunization work and implement a regular disinfection system. Regular disinfection is very important and cannot be ignored.

In spring, it is necessary to improve the resistance of chickens, pay special attention to epidemic prevention and disease prevention, and conduct regular vaccinations. According to the actual situation, some preventive traditional Chinese medicines can also be fed regularly to appropriately increase the content of vitamins and trace elements in the feed. Therefore, it is necessary to do a good job in spring flock management.
