In the process of raising chicken, why should we control the feed?

However, it is necessary to master skills to control feed for chickens. Reasonable feed control is the key, and reasonable feed control can bring many benefits to chicken raising

1. Before vaccinating the chickens, it is necessary to feed the chickens for two or three hours, which can reduce the stress response of the chickens;

2. When the chickens are overfed, feed control to the chickens can reduce the gastrointestinal burden of the chickens, promote digestive function of the chickens, and effectively reduce the incidence of glandular gastritis;

3. Feed intake will increase after the chicken recovers. At this time, the feed should be controlled to protect the newly recovered gastrointestinal function from being damaged by eating too much again;

In actual production, some enterprises and farmers have no basis to follow when choosing chain-type, driving-type, and auger-type feeding equipment. How should they choose? How can the automatic feeding systemensure uniform feeding? Will the stored feed go bad? Can the bulk feed truck be equipped with metering equipment?

When choosing feeding equipment, it is necessary to comprehensively consider feeding uniformity, dust generation, failure rate and accessory cost. For example, the chain feeding equipment feeds evenly and produces less dust, but the failure rate and the cost of accessories are relatively high, and these indicators must be weighed.

Some people think that: driving-type feeding equipment is economical, simple, and evenly fed; chain-type feeding equipment is suitable for broiler farming, and auger-type feeding equipment is more effective in controlling feeding speed, chicken stress, and feed waste. good.

Some people think that the noise of the driving feeding equipment is relatively small, the degree of feed fragmentation is low during use, and there is little dust generation after the cover plate is added on it.

Some people pointed out that some experiments have proved that using the auger feeding system can save 5-10 grams of feed per chicken, and the idling of the auger can also stimulate the chickens to eat.

Some people pointed out that in addition to limited feeding, it is better to use a chain feeding system for laying hens, because the feeding amount is easy to control, and it is not limited by the length of the chicken house.

In fact, some feeding systems are now 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 also cause blockage when encountering chicken feathers, which needs further improvement .

Someone pointed out that some bulk material trucks are now equipped with automatic metering devices, which can ensure the accuracy of ingredients. The time for storing feed in the feed tower should not be too long, and the feed will not deteriorate in a short period of time (2-3 days).

1. Feed management focus:

1. Sufficient material level and even distribution;

2. Check whether the driving and material line can operate normally;

3. The thickness of the driving material is uniform; the material tray cannot be tilted to ensure that the material line remains straight, and the feeding system line must be fixed to avoid leakage and series electricity;

4. Height adjustment of the feeding tray: ensure that the feeding tray is installed in place, and the height of the back of the chicken during the feeding period is consistent with the height of the upper edge of the grill of the feeding tray;

5. It is not allowed to cut off the material. Check whether the end of the leveler is in place after loading each time, whether the leveler is blocked and there is an empty plate, and whether there is drum material in the leveler;

6. Check each time after feeding to ensure that each chicken cage has feed, and put away or distribute the feed at both ends of the trough to the chickens to prevent mold and deterioration after a long time.

7. Let the chickens collect the feed in the trough or the feeder tray once a day.

8. After feeding, observe whether the feed has any deterioration such as mold, and report to the field manager in time if any abnormality is found.

Feed quality: The farm manager or general security should pay special attention to the appearance of the feed supplied each time, such as color, particles, dry humidity, peculiar smell, etc. If there is any abnormality, it will not be accepted and reported.

Note: When the flock is unhealthy, the feed intake will decrease first, so it is necessary to accurately record the feed intake, and pay special attention to the daily increase or decrease of feed intake!

Control program

In the actual production process, many farmers have never thought about controlling the weight of their chickens at all. They think that it is a good thing for chickens to eat more, and the faster they grow, the better. This shows that my chickens are well-raised. As a result, the body weight of the 14-day-old chick usually reaches more than 450 grams, which often causes the chick to grow too fast in the early stage, and then grow slowly in the later stage, with a high feed-to-meat ratio, a passive situation that is prone to disease and difficult to control.

10 days before entering the chicks, the chicks should eat freely, with small meals.

Pay attention to observe the growth of the chicken after 10 days. There is a standard. Generally, it is advisable to allow the weight of the chicken to reach 300 grams at the age of 14 days.

From the age of 14 days, add 2.5 grams of feed to each chick every other day on the basis of the original feed intake. If it is found that the growth is faster, the amount of feed supplied the previous day will not increase or decrease.

At the age of 21 days, ensure that the body weight is 600 grams. The weight of the 14th and 21st day is very critical. If it is well controlled at this stage, more than half of the breeding will be successful.

From the age of 22 days to the age of 28 days, on the basis of the original feed intake, the feed was increased by 2.5 grams per day.

From the age of 29 days, the cumulative increase in feed is 5 grams per day. What needs to be reminded is that the lanugo hair on the head of the chicken must be shed before the age of 35 days. The shedding of the lanugo hair is a sign of the development of the body's immune organs and other organs, and it is also a sign of the end of broiler brooding. If the lanugo does not fade, do not increase the feed amount accumulatively. Maintain the feed amount for 1-2 days according to the feed amount the day before. will fade. After the lanugo fell off, the feed was continuously increased by 5 grams per day.

At the age of 36-42 days, the cumulative increase in feed is 7.5 grams per day.

From the age of 43 days, the cumulative increase of feed is 5 grams per day. As long as the feed is not passed, the cumulative increase is increased every day, and the feed is maintained for a few days. At this time, the daily intake of each chicken is limited to 210-215 grams.

3 days before the sale, increase the light, increase the number of feedings, and feed as much as you want. But it must be noted that the continuous feed cannot exceed three days. If it cannot be sold for more than three days, 1000 chickens will quickly reduce the feed by 40 kg.

light control program

The first purpose of light control is to combine with food control. Without food control, it is not only difficult to control weight, but also there will be turmoil due to hunger, competition, fighting and feather pecking, etc., which will increase the death rate; the second purpose of light control is Let the chicken be quiet, and the dark light environment is conducive to the development of chicken viscera.

1-7 days of age, light for 22--24 hours, the intensity (the light is 1.8 meters from the ground) 2.5--4 watts/㎡.

8-13 days old, light for 16 hours, and the intensity is about 1 watt/㎡.

14-21 days old, except for the supplementary light until 8 o'clock in the evening in early spring and winter, all other seasons are under natural light, and no supplemental light is provided at night.

22-42 days old, increase the light for 1 hour a day, the longest light time is maintained for 22 hours, and the intensity is about 1 watt/㎡.

After 43 days of age, maintain 22 hours of light with an intensity of 3-4 watts/㎡.

Three days before the sale, the light time is 23-24 hours, and the light intensity is 4-5 watts/㎡.
