In early spring, the temperature difference between morning and evening is large, and the weather changes rapidly. Chickens are more sensitive to temperature changes, and it is easy to catch a cold in a low temperature environment for a long time, so be sure to keep warm. You can close doors and windows, hang straw curtains, or use heating methods such as drinking warm water and a stove to keep warm and warm. If you use a coal stove to heat up, pay close attention to gas poisoning.
Ventilation is an important part of the Chinese dream for raising chickens. While keeping warm, it is also necessary to ensure the ventilation of fresh air in the chicken house. In spring, the temperature is low and the stocking density is high. It is often important to pay attention to the insulation of the chicken house and ignore the ventilation and ventilation, which will easily lead to the air pollution in the house and the breeding of bacteria. Chickens inhale carbon dioxide and other harmful gases for a long time, which can easily lead to high incidence of colibacillosis, chronic respiratory diseases and other diseases. Therefore, ventilation cannot be ignored.
Spring is the season for the recovery of all things, and diseases are no exception, so disinfection in spring is particularly important. In early spring, the temperature is lower, and the frequency of bacterial activity decreases, but the climate is still cold at this time, and the resistance of chickens is generally weakened. Therefore, if disinfection is neglected at this time, it is very easy to cause disease outbreaks and cause heavy losses. Therefore, we must pay attention to the disinfection work and must not be sloppy.
4. Nutrition of Feed
Spring weather is fickle and chickens are relatively weak, so it is crucial to improve the nutrient level of the feed. However, different chickens need different nutritional supplements. For example, the protein content in the feed for chicks should be increased by 3%-5%, the energy in the feed during the breeding period should be appropriately increased, and middle-aged chickens need to supplement vitamins and some trace elements.
The daily light time of an adult chicken is between 14-17h. Light can promote the metabolism of the chicken and speed up the growth of the chicken. Therefore, the light time of the chicken must be met during the breeding process.
6. Disease Control
In spring, chickens are prone to chronic respiratory diseases, avian influenza, etc., so it is necessary to do a good job in the prevention of chicken diseases. Once the disease is found, it is necessary to take measures as soon as possible.
