Quality poultry equipment is necessary to raise healthy chickens and other poultry. Investing in poultry equipment is essential to running a successful poultry business that is capable of delivering a consistently high-end product.


To provide chickens with housing that is well-ventilated, temperature-controlled, and optimal for growth and production, quality poultry equipment should be used.


To ensure that your chickens are healthy while optimizing your costs for their upkeep, quality chicken farming equipment is available to ensure the best results.


Temperature control: Younger chickens are happiest between temperatures of 21˚C to 37˚C (depending on the production stage) while adults need to be kept at around 21˚C. If a chicken is too hot, itll stop eating. Cooling systems and heating pads are therefore important to keep temperatures optimal for the chickens.

Poultry drinking system: To ensure that your chickens are sufficiently hydrated while saving water (and thus saving money), its best to install an automated drinking system.

Control your chicken feed with a feed chain supply; this will help with portion control and ensure that your chickens are the same size and that no one goes hungry.

Protection: Ensure that your chickens are safe from predators such as wild birds, owls, dogs, cats, and other wildlife.

Some Basic Chicken Housing Needs:


It should be protected from weather conditions like harsh sun, rain, and floods

It needs to be kept clean to avoid diseases

Chicken housing must have space for the chickens to move and for the farmers to walk in

It needs to have chicken bedding and nesting material




In order to appropriately store your poultry feed you must ensure that the feed is kept some distance away from the poultry house. This way you can ensure your chickens, and/or pests, are not getting into the feed without your knowledge.


Making use of feed storage silos is the most cost-effective way to ensure the poultry feed is kept clean, dry, and pest free.



Pan-feeding systems are innovative systems that are worth their weight in gold when considering poultry feeder options and prices. When making use of pan-feeding systems on your poultry farm you ensure:


The use of innovative design for better animal welfare

Excellent feed conversion

Easy access to feed from start to finish

Making use of a feeding system that delivers clean, fresh feed in the right amounts is a priceless tool to have on a poultry farm.



First, you must decide if a Nipple or Bell poultry drinker will work best for you.Nipple poultry drinkers have the benefits of:


1. Clean water

Chicken directly drinks water from nipple drinker, no spilling and leaking, which makes sure chicken can get clean, fresh water to avoid some poultry diseases.

2. Saving labor

Connecting with the water tank through PVC pipes, it does not need to check very often how much water is left.

3. Easy for the chicken to use

A bright red/yellow/orange design attracts the chicken to drink and the nipple drinker dispenses water only when the chicken pecks.

4. Easy to clean the nipple

As the nipples and drinker cups are assembled, can be removable.

5. Can be adjustable

In reasonable design, the amount of water can be adjusted according to the water requirement of different ages of chicken.


On the other hand, Bell drinker is made of highly durable polyethylene. It can be easily installed by connecting directly to the water supply and, thanks to its bell-shaped distribution of water, several chickens can drink comfortably. It is completely removable and easy to clean. and you can water flocks from day-old chicks through to adult birds.

The most expensive and vitally important aspect when it comes to poultry farming is feeding. Therefore, when investing in a poultry feeding system it is vital to ensure that it will help a farmer run their operation optimally and assure profitability.


But what is the purpose of a feeding system? Feeding systems ensure that all chickens are fed in a short period and that every chicken gets the right daily portion of feed and nutrition. Therefore, each chicken has an equal chance to eat an equal amount of feed at the same time. This is the purpose behind every feeding system.


The main goal of poultry feeding systems is flock uniformity, throughout the flock's life cycle, to ensure maximized consistency. The more consistent the flocks are, the more repeatable the turnover and planning can be.


The benefits of a poultry feeding system include:


1. Ensures Clean Feed


Chicken feeders are meticulously designed to keep the outdoor elements away from the food. They reduce the damage caused by adverse weather conditions and ensure the food stays dry and germ-free. Furthermore, their features prevent birds from standing in the food trays. There is no room for the chicken to contaminate the feed which is a common issue with manual feeding.


2. Feed Safety Against Pests


Big farm areas often deal with unwanted visitors like rats and pests. These intruders will most likely enter the chicken coops, disrupting the feathery flocks' everyday life. These pests tend to eat the poultry feed resulting in loss of product and flock uniformity. Chicken feeders are equipped with a protective net around the feed making it difficult for most pests, such as mice, to get to it.


3. Ensure Flock Uniformity


The uniformity of a flock begins with what and how much a chicken consumes daily. Assuming the feed's nutritional basis and quality are both sufficient, the next stage is to ensure that the nutrients are distributed evenly to each chicken.


Inadequate flock uniformity is mostly caused by insufficient feeder space and weak feed distribution. In the breeding cycle, good uniformity is often defined as +/-10% of a flock being 70-80% average weight measured against the required weight standard. Flocks with less than 70% of the total population will have a bad start, affecting the production cycle; flocks with more than 80% would perform better overall.


4. Reduces Wastage


When manually feeding chicks there is an increase in feed wastage. Poultry feeding systems ensure less spillage, a consistent feed supply, and reduce fights breaking out under chicks for food. The systems ensure that all feed is used and that all birds get the opportunity to get their fill. No manual feeding means more time to spend on other important tasks.


Types of Poultry Feed Delivery Systems



Chain Feeding Systems


The chain feeder system's primary role is to provide a powdered chicken feed from the external feed straight into the poultry house in a pre-determined volume. Chain-feeding systems are also used for floor and layer management.


Automatic Pan Feeder


When it comes to broiler and animal domestication, automatic pan feeders are a very popular and dependable option amongst poultry farmers. Knowledge of these feeding systems is critical, especially if you want to care for many chickens on the farm. These feeders can include feed hoppers and integrated feed chain systems, as well as different automatic feed scales that are all meant to decrease manual work while ensuring that all animals are adequately fed.


Round and Hanging Tube Feeders


Round and hanging tube feeders have lower levels of efficiency and equal distribution, making them less optimal feeding systems. Considering the shortcomings of the systems, the breeder must be someone who has some expertise in working and dealing with these technologies and gadgets.

The greatest and most successful feeding system is one that provides the chickens with a controlled and balanced amount of nourishment. Furthermore, it is always advised to contact a professional animal nutritionist that is well-versed in all of the nutritional needs of poultry flocks.
