How to raise chickens in winter? What are the precautions for raising chickens in winter?

Introduction: Now, the time has entered the middle of October, in fact, from the National Day and Mid-Autumn Festival after the double festival of the temperature almost all over the world have fallen, in addition to individual areas. So, the weather is so cold, after entering the winter chicken farmers how to raise their own chickens?

The four most critical points of winter chicken

1, control harmful gases, some farmers into the chicken coop, asked to the smell is very heavy, only thought to deal with, in fact, when people smell, it shows that ammonia has long exceeded the standard, ammonia can stimulate the respiratory tract of chickens, affecting the chicken’s growth, with the burning of coal to increase the temperature of the chicken coop to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning of chickens, the need to increase the ventilation, replacement of bedding and so on.

2, cold and warm, laying hens laying eggs at a suitable temperature of about 20 degrees, the minimum should not be less than 13 degrees, if the temperature in the coop is too low, the temperature difference between inside and outside is large, to consider artificial warming.

3, ventilation, the weather is cold, farmers tend to pay attention to warmth, but may have neglected the ventilation, in the morning when the air in the chicken coop is not good, to gradually increase the amount of ventilation, can be carried out in the midday when the temperature is high, each time the ventilation time is shorter, more than a few times to pass the wind, if you find that the chicken is not in good spirits, coughing and wheezing, a lot of dust in the coop, a lot of odor, it is important to immediately strengthen the ventilation, but to avoid chickens directly by the The wind is blowing.

Influence of refraction of roof sandalwood on ventilation

Sandalwood (purlin is put on top of the inner wall or mountain wall as support, or used to support the roof steel plate and provide lateral support to the steel beam. The most critical part of building a roof is the ridge sandal, which is the benchmark of the whole roof. If the benchmark is not set properly, the roof will not be built correctly, and even the whole roof will not be connected.)

Many people in the chicken coop design ignored the purlin refraction effect on the airflow, both cage chicken house or net chicken house will appear such a problem, the house airflow and the incoming airflow is not fully mixed before the refraction of the cold airflow early landing thus causing cold stress to the top cage chickens. Many farmers put cover cloths on the top layer but end up drilling into the top layer from the adjacent aisle.

The result is: the wider the coop is built, the higher the wind speed, the faster the refraction, and the lower the temperature of the top cage inlet air.

If the purlin is 5-10cm, it is not difficult to cause refraction but it will block the airflow velocity, and the incoming air can not reach the middle of the chicken coop. Some farmers in order to overcome forcibly increase the wind speed but lead to refraction of the airflow is obvious and also caused excessive negative pressure in the chicken coop.

4, pay attention to humidity, the relative humidity of the chicken coop should be 60-70%, high humidity will be conducive to the survival of microorganisms, if the low temperature of the chicken coop will be aggravated by low temperature caused by the impact of low humidity, humidity is too low, the chicken coop will be very dry, the incidence of chicken respiratory diseases is higher, if the chicks are in a dry environment for a long time will lead to chicken dehydration and getting weaker and weaker, to be often sprinkled or sprayed with disinfection.
