If you need to buy full-price feed, you should try to feed and compare, so as to buy high-quality and low-cost feed; feed less frequently, and do not overfill at a time. According to the test, when feed is added to 2/3 of the trough, more than 12% is wasted; when added to 1/2, 5% is wasted; when added to 1/3, only 2% is wasted; timely beak cutting can not only prevent beak addiction. Occurs, and can effectively reduce feed waste. The feed consumption of chickens that have been beaked is 3% lower than that of chickens that have not been beaked. Chicken flocks generally perform beak cutting or trimming for the first time at the age of 10 days and the second beak cutting or beak trimming at 12 weeks of age.
