Now more and more farms choose to buy chicken cages to raise chickens. It shows that the demand of farmers for breeding equipment is gradually increasing.
Cage breeding is more suitable for commercial farms because it saves space and feed. In addition, chickens are separated from their feces, so cages reduce the spread of disease and the risk of infection.
The benefits of cages are roughly divided into the following points:
1. High feeding density
Make full use of chicken coops and various technical equipment to increase the density of chickens. Generally, only 5-6 chickens can be raised per square meter of ground, and a maximum of 20 chickens can be raised in a three-layer vertical overlapping cage. This greatly saves the space and cost required to construct the chicken coop.
2. Save labor
The chickens are kept in cages, unable to move, no water, no feed trough or spawning box. Eggs can be automatically rolled out of the cage, which is convenient for picking up eggs. Therefore, it can save time for fecal removal and other management.
3. Reduce feed waste
There is little waste of feed and low consumption. The feed trough is placed on the ground in the chicken house. Feed is also easy to throw away as waste. The chickens in the cage are fed outside, and the chickens stick out their heads to eat outside the fence, eliminating the waste of feed. At the same time, caged chickens limit the activities of the chickens, so the heat energy consumption is minimal, and the chickens are quiet.
4. Low incidence
Facilitate epidemic prevention and reduce disease. Raising chicken cages in cages where humans and chickens are not in contact with chickens and chickens with manure can prevent or reduce the chance of disease transmission, control the occurrence and prevalence of parasitic diseases and infectious diseases, increase the survival rate of chickens, and greatly reduce medical expenses.
5. Easy to manage
The chickens are kept in cages, which are easy to care for and supervise. It is also easy to find sick chickens faster and prevent chickens from pecking on the ground. The cage door of the stepped chicken coop is a push-pull design. If the flocks fight or get sick, the staff can easily catch and manage the flocks in time.
6. High egg production rate
For chickens with low productivity, feed can be adjusted to maintain a good production level. At the same time, there is no food competition in the cage, and balanced intake of nutrients and normal development of the chickens ensure the stable and high yield of the chickens.
7. Easy to control temperature and humidity
The temperature and humidity of the chicken house are easy to control, the ventilation is convenient, and the environmental conditions around the chicken body are standardized.
8. Scientific feeding
Feeding, water supply, and egg picking are all carried out outside the cage to keep the feed, drinking water and eggs clean without disturbing the chickens. Keep a quiet environment so that the chickens can produce. Eggs in a stable and balanced manner.
9. Reduce egg breakage rate
The eggs produced by the chickens are rolled out of the cage directly without touching the feces. Not only the rate of broken eggs is greatly reduced, but it can also be kept clean.
10. Safe to use
The welding density of the bottom net and the top net of the cage can be adjusted to avoid the phenomenon of chicken hanging. The wire around the screen can be thickened to increase the pressure-bearing capacity of the cage.
The automatic cage system is a new technology that can help you successfully run a poultry farm business and will help you throughout the process.
