The Top 5 Equipment Types for Farming Layer Chickens

Equipment Types for Farming Layer Chickens

If you have plans to establish or grow your poultry farm, you will undoubtedly consider the type of equipment that will work best for your needs given your chicken population, building design, location, manpower, electricity, etc.

Here is a list of the top 5 most used pieces of poultry equipment in automated layer cages.

1. Battery-operated Chicken Cage

Because it conserves space and feed, commercial poultry farms frequently employ chicken cages or battery cages. Cage rearing also lessens the danger of illness since the hens are kept isolated from the feces.s

How can I pick a henhouse of high caliber?

Farmers often take into account the cage type, lifetime, and cost when selecting a battery chicken cage.

Chicken Cage Type

Model, capacity, and cage size characteristics make up cage kinds. The battery layer cages come in two models: the H-type and the A-type. These are frequently employed in industrial or backyard chicken farms.

When can I use this chicken cage again?

For a chicken farmer, this can be their top worry. So that farmers may use them for a long period, high-quality layer cages should have superior anti-corrosion resistance and a sturdy structure.

Surface treatments like cold galvanizing, hot galvanizing, and PVC coating affect a cage’s ability to resist corrosion.

Price of a Chicken Cage

The type of chicken cage, the surface finish, the quality of the accessories, and even the design of the chicken cage all affect the price of the cage.

2. Drinking Supplies

A closed water system serves as the chicken cage’s nipple drinking system. A full drinking system is used by farmers and includes water tanks, water regulators, water pipelines, and nipple drinkers.

The best water supply equipment is a nipple drinker since it conserves water and prevents germs.

You must select a dependable, leak-free drinker. But how can you be sure you’re purchasing a drinker with top-quality nipples?

To start, stainless steel pins for the nipples are required to avoid corrosion. The rubber seal should also be thick enough to have a tight connection, and it should be composed of pure, non-toxic material. High-top also sells the nipple drinker with a drip cup.

3. Feeding Devices

The first step in cage-raising is the use of a chicken feeding trough. To save chicken feed, selecting an appropriate feeder based on size and form is crucial. Pay close attention to the feeder while maintaining quality.

Pure PVC material, which is flexible and resistant to corrosion, should be used to make feeder troughs of high quality. It won’t crack even if a person weighing 80 kg stands on it.

4. Manure Cleaning Tools

Ammonia harm to your chickens’ eyes and respiratory system results from wet chicken manure’s high ammonia content. The development and egg production of your chickens benefit from routine dung cleaning.

This may be done automatically using a manure scraper machine. You must construct a manure channel before you can install it. Your chicken cage layout will decide the size of the channel. Requesting a FREE DESIGN from us may be done by leaving a message here.

Don’t just toss away the cleaned chicken excrement. Direct sales of dry manure are possible. Plants can benefit from fertilized manure, which can also be a source of biogas.

5. Equipment for immunization

The management of the flocks of chickens’ health includes the use of immunization or vaccination equipment.

The majority of US poultry vets are in favor of day-of-age spray vaccinations in the hatchery. Select our 2L type ULV fogger equipment, which has eight nozzles, to be able to change the particle size based on the age of the chicken.
