  Four diets – starter, grower, developer and pre-layer – during the brood/grow period are adequate for chicks/pullets. Each should be supplemented with vitamins and minerals and should be fed until breeding company target weight is achieved. The main mistakes seen in rearing house are: Nipple drinkers too high. THE CAGES This system is specially designed for pullets that rearing period from 1~12 weeks. Cage materials is Q Steel and surface treatment is hot dipped or cold galvanized based on clients’ requirement. Because of unique design, feeding line and water . The M and N cages were introduced as a solution for cage users who need front access to their rearing and observation cages. After many requests for this option in custom made cages, these front-opening aluminum rearing cages ar more details: Replacement Sleeve for Rearing Cage. Advantages to the new design include a cover that can be removed for cleaning or replacement and a cage that can now be easily stored or mailed (the new design also weighs less). For most of the year, we have at least one occupied Butterfly/Caterpillar Rearing Cage here at the nursery.

It also covers the systems for keepingbirds inFile Size: KB. The rearing system and equipment have to be carefully chosen according to the equipment used in the where young pullets have to be trained for a quick adaptation to use the equipment on different levels.

EXERCISE In a few words list all the characteristics (e.g. many brown/white eggs) that you would like to see in 1. a laying hen, and 2. a broiler chicken. _____.

The battery brooders could be stacked up to three to four compartments (see Fig. 1). However, a plyboard or similar material must be placed underneath each compartment to catch the manure.

Livi layer pullet cages are the best systems which offer customers the smooth transition of the pullets from the rearing to the chicken cages for laying eggs. The layer baby chicken cages and laying cages should be similar to make the layer chicken adapt to the new environment easily and quickly. Environmental temperatures play a major role in the optimal rearing of layer pullets, the basis of a financially successful production period of the layer bird. The optimal temperature for a white layer is 23 degrees, respectively 24 degrees for brown layers. Every degree Celsius above this level will cause reduced feed intake and as a result a decrease in egg numbers, shell quality and egg size.
