In the breeding industry, many farmers choose closed chicken houses when constructing house, that is, there are no windows around, and some farmers may leave several small vents, and then use multi-layer cages to raise layers and broilers.
So what are the advantages of using this type of chicken house to rear layer and broilers?
Closed chicken houses are easier to control the environment
The use of closed house to raise birds and then prepare some chicken raising equipment can better provide a comfortable growth and production environment for chickens, which meets the physiological and production needs of birds.
The closed chicken house will not be affected by the natural environmental conditions, and the production is stable and safe; through the manual control operation technology, it is beneficial to control the growth and development, sexual maturity and stimulate the laying cycle of the chickens, and facilitate the monitoring of the quality and quantity of the chickens . Such as restricting breeding, compulsory moulting and other measures.
Can realize intensive and large-scale farming
Using closed poultry house to raise layers and broiler chickens, farmers can use multi-level cages to raise chickens, centralized breeding, rational use of the area of the chicken coop, increase the number of chickens, high land utilization, and the flock of chickens. The growth and production can generally be controlled in accordance with the breeding standards of chickens to achieve a large-scale breeding model.
Save manpower and reduce feeding costs
The use of closed chicken house for breeding can use equipment to complete ventilation, light, humidity, and even feeding, drinking, and epidemic prevention.
It can reduce the manpower required in the breeding process, and the use of equipment to raise chickens make the work more advanced and efficient, and the artificial waste of feed will be greatly reduced, thereby improving production efficiency and reducing breeding costs.
Good isolation and disinfection, less cross-contamination
The closed chicken house is almost isolated from the outside world, so it will not be threatened by the outside environment and pathogens.
At the same time, the disinfection and sterilization in the chicken house can be controlled in a certain space, so that the chance of cross-contamination will be greatly reduced, which is beneficial to the prevention and control of epidemic diseases, especially major animal diseases.
Disease easy to control
Because the chicken breeding environment can be better controlled by using a closed chicken house, the probability of infection of chickens is low. Compared with other types of chicken houses, even if the chickens are infected with the same disease, due to the good internal environment, the medicine is more scientific and more effective. It is more effective, so the treatment is easier and the treatment cost is lower.
Normal production in extreme environments
Open chicken house will be severely affected if they encounter high temperature, high cold, and high humidity.
However, because the closed chicken house is controlled by completely artificial conditions, no matter what kind of extreme environment it encounters, it can use a large amount of energy for artificial control, so it can still organize normal production when encountering extreme environments.
