Before laying hens, good breeds should be selected. In addition, according to the nutritional needs of laying hens at different stages, adequate nutrition should be provided to ensure that the proportion of protein, energy, minerals and vitamins in feed is reasonable, especially the content and proportion of calcium and phosphorus in the diet. The amount of calcium and phosphorus should be determined by the physiological stage of laying hens. In general, when the calcium content is 3.2%-3.5%, the laying rate reaches 70%-80%, it can be increased to 3.6%-3.7%, and the peak period of laying can be increased to 4%. In addition, it is very important to ensure the content of vitamin I in the diet in order to promote the absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorus, and to improve the quality of eggshells.

Strengthen the management of aquaculture environment, especially to do a good job of summer heat prevention and cooling. Chicken houses should be equipped with cooling facilities and ventilation equipment. Effective measures should be taken to reduce the temperature in high temperature season. Baking soda or vitamin C can be added to the drinking water or feed of laying hens to prevent heatstroke. Reasonable illumination should be given to the chickens, the feeding density of the chickens should be adjusted, the concentration of harmful gases in the house should be reduced, and the comfort degree of the chickens should be improved.
