What medicine does chicken have a bad appetite?


What should I do if the chicken’s food intake does not increase? What medicine does the chicken have poor appetite? The growth and development of chickens are closely related to the digestion and absorption of feed nutrients by the chicken body. In the process of raising chickens, the chickens lose weight and the feed intake does not follow. There are many factors of the sky, and the reasons are more complicated. So what should I do if the feed intake of the chicken does not increase during the process of raising the chicken? What medicine is the chicken's appetite?

What should I do if the chicken feed intake cannot increase?

Reasonably improve feeding methods

1. Temperature factor
The suitable temperature for laying hens is 18-23 degrees. When the temperature is too high in summer, heat stress will cause the feed intake of the flock to drop significantly. The higher the temperature, the greater the decrease in feed intake of the flock. The drastic drop in the production rate directly reduces the production performance of laying hens. Therefore, in summer, the weather is hot and the temperature is high. Farmers can plant trees outside the chicken house, build shade nets, spray cool water, and ventilate vertically to lower the temperature of the chicken house.
2. Feed factors
(1) Since the temperature in summer is relatively low in the morning and evening, and the temperature is high at noon, farmers can adjust the feeding time and choose to feed in the morning and evening. According to the principle of "small amount and many times", less frequent feeding.
(2) Due to the reduced feed intake of laying hens in summer, in order to ensure the normal egg production performance of the flock, the ration ratio can be appropriately adjusted according to the principle of "one reduction and four increases". One reduction-reduce the energy feed in the diet; four increase-increase protein, calcium content, fat and green juicy feed.
(3) Appropriately add "powerful vitamin C" to feed or drinking water to improve the anti-stress ability of laying hens. Add "good eggs" in the dressing to improve the body's intestinal environment, increase feed conversion rate, and relieve sub-health. Extend the peak period of egg production.
(4) It can spray water or feed wet material in the trough. When spraying water in the trough, you can add antibacterial or anti-stress drugs to the water, and the amount of spraying water should not be too large; the palatability of the wet feed is good, which can increase the feed intake of the flock, but you should be careful not to overdo it to prevent feed Spoiled.
3. Drinking water factors
In summer, the appetite of the laying hens decreases and the thirst increases. It is necessary to provide sufficient and clean cold water to the chickens to ensure sufficient water in the chickens and to regulate the temperature of the chickens.
4. Stocking density
In the hot and hot summer, farmers should try to reduce the stocking density of the chicken house to avoid the accumulation of ammonia, carbon dioxide and other gases in the chicken house due to high density.

Properly prevent chicken diseases
When chickens are infected with gastroenteritis, enterotoxic syndrome, enteritis and other chicken diseases due to bacteria, viruses, parasites, etc., it will cause lower feed intake, reduced digestion and abnormal feces, resulting in slow growth and laying eggs. The amount drops. Therefore, farmers can use "colistin sulfate" drinking water during feeding to prevent and control the occurrence of chicken enteritis and enterotoxic syndrome in summer, increase feed intake of chickens, reduce feed waste, and increase feed conversion rate.

What medicine does chicken have a bad appetite?

Remedy One:
If the temperature in the house is high, the temperature must be lowered first. It has been verified through verification that the broiler's feed intake will increase by 1.6% if the temperature in the house exceeds 25°C for chickens that are about 30 days old. The reason is simple: in summer, people usually have no appetite, and the same is true for chickens. In addition, after 30 days of age, the temperature in the house can be maintained at 21 degrees. At this time, the feed to meat ratio is low.
Remedy 2:
Add glucose. It is suitable for chickens with long disease course and extremely high casualty rate. At the same time, when chickens are weak, glucose can be added to increase physical fitness.
Interpretation: After a chicken disease, what is needed is energy supplementation, which will help the body's various organs to restore normal metabolism. At this time, it is glucose, which has many benefits.
Dosage: Calculate the amount of water the chickens drink for 6 hours at a concentration of 5% to calculate the amount of glucose needed. It is enough to drink 4-5 hours.
Home remedy three:
Add B complex vitamins. There is only one situation in which this method can be used, that is, the chickens are almost in a healed state, but only the feed intake is slightly worse. It is just that when adding vitamin B complex, it is recommended that it must be mixed with materials, and drinking water is not recommended, otherwise the effect will not be good.
Remedy four:
Add (human) antipyretic analgesic tablets. Why can the addition of this drug increase feed intake? The reason is: in the post-healing stage of the flock, there are still a considerable number of weak chickens that have not yet healed, and very few chickens still have high fever, which indirectly affects the overall feed intake of the flock.
Dosage: 4-5 chickens in 1 tube for 30 days.
Remedy Five:
Add (human) Shimao raw tablets. The dosage is 1 piece of tube 1 kg material, the price is 40 cents per bag, and the specification is 100 pieces/bag. This method is only applicable: when the feed intake of the chickens has returned to normal, but you are worried about falling again, you can use this method.
What should I do if the chicken feed intake does not increase? What medicine does the chicken have poor appetite? The above is about the chicken, the reason analysis and prevention measures for the feed intake does not increase, which requires everyone to follow the combination of maintenance and prevention in the process of raising chickens. The principle of prevention is more important than cure. Comprehensive prevention and treatment shall be carried out to find the cause in time and solve the problem symptomatically.
