Precautions for raising laying hens in spring


In spring, the climate changes from cold to warm, the temperature gradually rises, and the sunshine gradually increases, which is a good season for chickens to lay eggs. However, due to the warmer temperature at this time, it is easy to relax the management, and it will also have a more or less impact on the chickens. Therefore, in this season, pay more attention to the following management matters:
strengthen management
Strengthen the feeding and management, improve the environmental conditions of the chicken house, so that the chickens live in an environment suitable for their own growth and development, so as to enhance the body's disease resistance. In feeding, attention should be paid to the supply of full-price and high-quality feed required for chicken growth and production. The nutrients in the feed should meet the needs of its growth and production, especially the supply of vitamins should be sufficient, and a certain proportion of protein should also be ensured. Increase the high-energy feed containing more starch and sugar to meet the physiological and production needs of chickens. Drinking water should be clean and clean. Be careful in management, often observe the flock, and pay attention to the changes in the flock.
Insulation and ventilation
Try to keep the temperature of the laying hen house at 17°C-21°C, and at the same time coordinate ventilation. Open doors and windows every day when the temperature is high at noon to discharge harmful gases.
supplemental lighting
In early spring, the nights are long and the days are short, and the laying hens will reduce the egg production rate due to insufficient light, so artificial supplementary light can be used. Under normal circumstances, the total time of light per day is 14-17 hours. The intensity of supplementary artificial light should be 2-4 watts per square meter of chicken house area.
Disinfect regularly
In spring, the temperature is low, and the activity frequency of bacteria decreases, but when the right conditions are met, they can multiply and endanger the flock. In spring, the resistance of chickens is generally weakened. If disinfection is neglected, it will easily lead to disease outbreaks and epidemics, which will cause huge economic losses. Therefore, chicken farms should adopt the method of drinking water disinfection, that is, add disinfectant in proportion to the water, and drink it once a week.
prevent stress
Chickens are timid, easily frightened, and very sensitive to changes in the external environment. Therefore, the work of feeding, adding water, picking eggs, and cleaning should be gentle, and strangers and other animals are strictly prohibited from entering the chicken house. If there is a strong sound from the outside world, the breeder should enter the chicken coop in time, or add an appropriate amount of vitamins to the feed or water to reduce the loss caused by the stress response.
strict immunity
Do a good job of vaccination of the flocks, so that the flocks can produce enough antibodies and enhance the resistance of the flocks to infectious diseases. It is necessary to formulate an immunization plan. Spring is the period of concentrated immunization. It is necessary to strengthen the immunization of avian influenza, Newcastle disease, chicken infectious bursal disease, chicken leukemia, chicken reticuloendothelial hyperplasia, chicken infectious anemia, chicken Marek's disease, etc. Work. In addition, to strengthen supervision, accurate diagnosis, rational drug use.
Use "Five Agents" for Efficient Chicken Raising
The following "five agents" are used skillfully in raising chickens, which have a significant effect on the health care, epidemic prevention, weight gain and egg production of chickens.
●Stomach-strengthening agent The main ingredient is sodium sulfate, which has the functions of strengthening the stomach, increasing appetite, and stimulating substance metabolism. Adding 0.25% sodium sulfate to the diet can effectively prevent various gastrointestinal diseases of chickens.
●Stimulants Adding ginger, onion, garlic, pepper, etc. to the diet can stimulate the stomach, increase appetite, and reduce diseases.
●Adsorbent Add 0.3 grams of charcoal powder to the diet as an adsorbent, which has the functions of cleaning the stomach, eliminating toxic gases in the body, and promoting the weight loss of overly fat hens and increasing egg production.
The disinfectant has a kind of potassium permanganate commonly known as "PP" powder, which has the functions of disinfection, sterilization, deodorization, anti-corrosion, astringency, etc. Let chickens drink 0.1% potassium permanganate aqueous solution, which can effectively prevent the inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract of chickens sexually transmitted diseases.
●Abrasive agent Add 50-100 grams of fine sand to each kilogram of chicken feed as an abrasive agent to help the intestinal wall to rub, digest and absorb nutrients in the feed, improve the utilization rate of the feed and reduce the cost of feeding.
