Precautions for raising layer hens in winter

2021-02-20

In winter, the egg production of laying hens usually drops, and some even stop production. This is a seasonal factor. But in fact, this season, if the feeding and management of the laying hens can be strengthened and some adjustments can be made, the laying hens can continue to lay well. In view of winter layer breeding skills, this article will focus on several aspects here, and it is recommended that layer farmers pay attention to the process of raising chickens.

1. Keep warm and safe
 
Insulation farmers in winter know that there are many ways to keep them warm. Don't blindly pursue heat preservation and ignore the safety of laying hens. Every year, farmers have caused safety accidents in the chicken coops when they are keeping warm. Common problems are that harmful gases cause poisoning of the laying hens and insufficient oxygen in the chicken coops cause damage to the laying hens. In winter, the hen house is not enough to keep warm. It is necessary to make appropriate adjustments in accordance with the indoor ventilation and safety conditions, so that the laying hens can have enough air to breathe when they are warm.
 
2. Increase nutrition
 
Due to the low temperature in winter, laying hens need certain nutrients to resist the cold. Secondly, they need to prepare for the laying period of the next year. They need to lay the foundation for nutrition and also need to produce. Comprehensively, the nutritional requirements will be much higher, so Nutrition must keep up. At this time, you need to feed more vitamins and the like, because in winter, the vitality of the laying hens must be guaranteed, and the demand for this will be relatively high. Nutrition is very important in this respect. Many farmers want to ensure production and are reluctant to supplement their layers with nutrients. In the end, the layers are extremely prone to problems.
 
3. Control the light duration
 
The laying efficiency of a laying hen is related to the length of time of light, because if the light is dim for a long time, the laying hen will slowly enter a dormant state, and the long-term light will increase its egg production. If the farmers want to guarantee the output in winter, they must supplement the light time appropriately. The whole day's light time is controlled at about 12-15 hours. If it is longer, it will easily affect the health of the laying hens and will reduce the peak period of egg production in the next year. This is also a place to pay attention, do not bear the electricity bill.
 
4. Appropriate elimination
 
This time is actually a time period for the elimination of laying hens. For the following egg production declines, it is best to eliminate some of the long-term thin laying hens, and then prepare new laying hens to maintain stable production. The rest of the time is usually the time when the laying hens are more productive. It is difficult for everyone to have free time to do this. At this time, the addition of some new laying hens will have relatively little impact on the original uncultivated laying hens. At this time, the laying hens will be relatively stable. When they are active, the adaptation period has passed long ago. This is a special issue. Attention, can not be ignored.
