When poultry farming equipment is becoming more and more mechanized, automated and intelligent, laying hen farmers how to solve the technical bottleneck problem in the application of complete sets of equipment so that the farming equipment is more suitable for modern poultry production is a major problem.

1. Chicken Farm Feeding equipment

1-1 Existing problems:

During actual production, how should poultry farmers choose chain-type, traveling-type, and auger-type feeding equipment? How does the poultry automatic feeding system ensure uniform feeding? Will the feed stored in the feed tower deteriorate during the high-temperature period in summer? Bulk Can the truck be equipped with metering equipment?


1-2 Solution:

When selecting poultry feeding equipment, it is necessary to comprehensively consider feeding uniformity, dust generation, failure rate and farm accessories cost.

Chain feeding equipment is suitable for broiler breeding, but the failure rate and cost of accessories are relatively high; auger feeding equipment has better control over feeding speed, flock stress, and feed waste; traveling feeding equipment is economical and simple, Uniform feeding, low noise, less dust, and low degree of feed breakage when used.

Experiments have confirmed that the use of the auger feeding system can save 5-10 grams of feed per chicken, and the idling of the auger can also stimulate the flock to eat.

Except restricting feeding, it is better to use a chain feeding system for laying hens, because the feeding amount is well controlled, and it is not limited by the length of the chicken house.

Some Poultry Feeding systems are equipped with automatic feeding devices, which can not only ensure uniform feeding, but also reduce the labor intensity of manual feeding, but the feeding device will be blockage by when it by chicken feathers, which needs further improvement.

Also some bulk trucks are equipped with automatic metering devices, which can ensure the accuracy of ingredients. The storage time of feed in the feed tower should not be too long, and the feed will not deteriorate in a short time, probably 2-3 days.

2. Chicken Farm Drinking water equipment

2-1 Existing problems:

What is the function of poultry drinking nipples with chicken drinker cups for brooding and brooding chickens? What is the function of the middle poultry water tank in the cage of laying hens? In addition, there are problems such as deformation of the poultry drinking line and the lack of a water line recoil device.


2-2 Solution:

The nipple drinker is equipped with a chicken drinker cup, which can prevent chickens from getting their feathers wet when drinking water. The Chicken Water Drinkers should be cleaned regularly to prevent the growth of bacteria. The water tank in the middle of the chicken coop is mainly used for receiving water when replacing the nipple, and it should be cleaned regularly to prevent the accumulation of dirt.

In case to solve the problem that chickens cannot drink water at the same time, the main poultry drinking water pipe can be thickened to increase the water pressure, or each layer can be supplied with water separately, and the lights can be turned off after a period of time, so that the chickens can drink water at the same time.

At present, many chicken farms are accustomed to drinking water for drug administration, but after the powder is added, it will be blocked by the filter, which will affect the drug administration effect. The filter needs to be flushed regularly, and the poultry water line should be cleaned regularly, but strong acids and alkalis cannot be used. The water line is easily deformed when it is used for a long time or when the season changes, which is related to the quality of the water line. In addition, it is necessary to ensure that the installation is in place.

3. Poultry House Cage equipment

3-1 Existing problems:

What are the advantages and disadvantages of cascading chicken cages? The depth, height, feeding capacity of a single cage, and the spacing of cage layers are appropriate? How to solve the problem of chickens running out of the cage and channeling?


3-2 Solution:

The layered cages for laying hens have the following advantages: saving land, reducing civil construction investment, and large feeding volume per unit area; high degree of mechanization, reducing labor intensity and labor costs; The environment of the chicken house can be controlled manually, reducing the external environment to the chickens.

Infact, chicken manure can be processed in time to reduce environmental pollution. It also has the following disadvantages: strong dependence on energy; relatively high energy consumption; high stocking density in a single building, increasing the risk of biosecurity.

The cage layer spacing should be moderate, otherwise it will affect the growth of chickens. Running chickens and channeling chickens can be achieved by adjusting the height of the baffle. The appropriate size of the chicken cage is suitable. In addition to the investment cost, the convenience of the equipment should also be considered. If the depth of the cage is too large, it will be inconvenient to catch chickens and maintain the water line.

4. Lighting equipment of Poultry House

4-1 Existing problems:

Which type of house lighting is suitable? How to arrange it more reasonably?

4-2 Solution:

Most chicken farms use energy-saving lamps, but the service life of energy-saving lamps is not long. Adding a spherical cover to the lamp can play the role of waterproof and dust proof and prolong the service life. For multi-layer caged laying hen houses, the lighting should be arranged in a staggered manner and not on the same horizontal line. LED lights are also used to easily adjust the light intensity, and there are two methods of DC dimming and AC dimming, which are easy to operate.


How to Find the fit point of equipment production and use

1. The planning and design of the chicken coop should be scientific and reasonable

In actual operation, the architectural drawings of the chicken house should be provided by the equipment factory to ensure that it is matched with the equipment; the water, electricity and monitoring lines of the chicken house should be well designed, buried in the ground and in the wall, and cannot be exposed in the chicken house; the chicken house Water inlets should be left at the front and back and at both ends, and no water ditches should be left at both sides and in the middle; the investment in equipment should be done in one step, neither refinement nor large. It should be well planned and designed, step by step; The height of the chicken coop should meet the needs of 120-day-old chickens; the equipment can be automated and must be automated, because the labor cost will be higher and higher in the future; the vulnerable parts such as water, electricity, and heating must be backed up, and if they are insufficient, they must be replenished in time, otherwise it will be Caused a lot of losses; the recruitment and training of employees should be carried out simultaneously with the construction of the site.

2. The links between equipment production and use need to be connected

At present, in the process of raising young chickens, the kettle, the feeding tray and the bottom net can be avoided, which can greatly save the labor intensity and make the breeding of laying hens easier. And the feed will not be moldy.

Therefore, considering the problem from the perspective of the breeder, the design and use of the equipment should make more use of the nature of chickens.
