Layer chicken cage
Laying cages are generally used when laying hens are 141 days old to the end of laying. Each single cage is 400 mm long, 450 mm deep, 450 mm high in the front, 380 mm high in the rear, and 7.5 degrees in the bottom of the cage. The cage door opened. The bottom mesh of the cage has a warp spacing of 22 mm and a weft spacing of 60 mm. The top side and rear mesh have a large range of apertures, which can be flexibly controlled. However, the aperture of the side mesh is preferably 25-30 mm high and 40-50 mm wide. Because this kind of mesh can prevent the chickens from pecking each other, each single cage can raise 3-4 chickens. The total height of the cage is 1.7 meters and the door width is 210-240 mm.
Brooding cages are generally used for chicks before they are 140 days old. Generally, they are raised in 3-4 layers of overlapping cages. The total length depends on the size of the breeding. The height of the cage frame is 100-150 mm, and the cage length of each single cage is 700 -1000 mm, the height of the cage is 300-400 mm, and the depth of the cage is 400-500 mm. The mesh of the cage is rectangular or square, the hole of the bottom net is 12.5 mm, the hole of the side net and the top net is 25 mm, the cage door is set in the front, and the adjustable range of the cage door gap is 20-35 mm. Each cage can There are about 30 chicks, and the overall width is 1.6-1.7 meters.
Growing cages are generally used when chickens are 41 to 140 days old, and they are all three layers. The height is 1.7-1.8 meters, and each single cage is 800 mm long, 400 mm high, and 420 mm deep. The bottom mesh of the cage is 20-40 mm, the diameter of the top, side and rear mesh is 25 mm, and the width of the cage door is 140-150 mm, with 3-4 layers overlapping. Each single cage can accommodate 7-15 chicks.
The broiler cages are all three-dimensional cages. The structure and feeding density of the cages are similar to those of rearing cages. Some farms also use flat nets to raise them.
The design of the chicken cage has a major relationship with the growth and development of the chicken. A more reasonable design of the chicken cage will be more conducive to the growth of the chicken. The principle of selection of cage materials, equipment maintenance, inspection and repair, disinfection, ventilation of the chicken coop, chicken cage The establishment of farms, the quality of breeding staff, etc. are unified and standardized. These behaviors are worthy of our reference.
