Do you know the precautions for drinking water when using layer cages to raise chickens? Water is the source of life. Especially in the case of raising a large number of laying hens. The temperature in autumn is relatively low. So we have to pay attention to the water temperature in the chicken coop. Although they don’t like to drink warm water. However, it is necessary to feed warm water for health.

The water supply should be adjusted according to the season.

The poultry drinking water system is one of the necessary equipment for poultry breeding battery cages in the entire poultry breeding industry. It has the advantages of scientific design and convenient operation.
