What is the appropriate temperature for the chicken house?
The most suitable temperature is 15-28℃, but due to different chicken breeds, the temperature requirements of the chicken house will be slightly different. The best temperature for laying hens is 24~27℃ (21℃ for breeding laying hens), and better economic benefits of laying eggs can be obtained within this temperature range. The chicken is a kind of constant temperature animal. It adjusts itself within the possible range and tries to maintain a fairly stable body temperature. However, we must control the temperature and humidity of the chicken house. If you don’t pay attention, there will be casualties, so this is also a technical job. . Let's talk about the temperature control of the dormitory
Chickens of different types, uses and growth stages have different requirements for temperature. Those before 10 days of age cannot adjust their body temperature on their own. They are in a state of "changing temperature" and it is difficult to adapt to changes in external temperature. Artificial heat preservation during the brooding period: the chicks have sparse hairs, the body temperature regulation function is not perfect, and the heat preservation ability is poor. In a low temperature environment, they are easy to catch cold and cause diarrhea or other diseases, or even freeze to death. Therefore, the chicks should be artificially warmed . Temperature control after the brooding period: After the brooding period, the body temperature regulation function of the chicks is basically sound, and it is generally not necessary to continue to keep warm. However, the appropriate temperature in the house is beneficial to health and weight gain, and increases the conversion rate. Therefore, attention should be paid to adjusting the temperature in the house at this time. The most suitable temperature is 15-28°C.
