Summer care for laying hens
Oct 13, 2018

First, scientific feeding ensures the laying efficiency of laying hens. In summer, sunshine hours are longer, and feeding frequency should be increased. The best interval is 3 to 4 hours. Feed more in the morning and evening, fed less at noon, feeding each meal twice, half an hour apart, in order to induce layers to increase appetite. In order to reduce the proportion of corn and sorghum in the feed for laying hens in summer, corn should be controlled within 45%, sorghum should not exceed 5%, or sorghum can not be fed, and the proportion of bran, fish meal, bean cake or peanut cake should be appropriately increased.

Two, a variety of measures to protect the indoor temperature, to prevent the chicken temperature too high. When the temperature rises to above 25 degrees Celsius, should open the window promptly, install the ventilation screen window; When higher than 30 degrees Celsius, can put up the awning or the shade above the activity ground which is close to the chicken, the awning size must be similar to the chicken house or larger than the chicken house area, is higher than the chicken house about 50 centimeters.Our Hot Galvanized 120 layers chicken cage is your good choice.

Three, ensure that the layers are adequately drinking and reasonably cool down. In summer, the water in feeding basins or drinking pipes is easy to be hot, resulting in a drop in the amount of water consumed by chickens. Therefore, water dispensers should be kept in a cool place, and water should be changed frequently. Conditional farms should dig deep wells for chickens to drink or flush the pens, in order to reduce the temperature of the egg population.

Four, a reasonable density of chickens to prevent excessive heat stress. Layers are afraid of heat, so, in summer, should be based on the rise in temperature, timely reduce the density of chickens. When the laying hens were put into summer, 5 of them were raised per square metre, and 4 of them could be reduced after being laid down.

Five, do a good job in epidemic prevention work to ensure production. In summer, mosquitoes and flies are spread easily, and diseases are spread. Therefore, we must conscientiously do a good job in the disinfection and epidemic prevention work in the farms, and prevent the occurrence of diseases. The chicken house should be cleaned once a day and the excrement should be transported in time; the trough should be cleaned regularly, exposed to the sun and disinfected, and the povidone iodine disinfection zone should be maintained once a week.
