Due to the lack of information on breeding, the management of layers before and after the start of production is often lax in rural chicken farmers than during the peak period of egg production. In fact, in order to make the flock high and stable production, it is very important to do a good job of management before and after production. important.
1. Regular deworming and epidemic prevention
Before the chickens lay eggs, all epidemic prevention should be done in an all-round way. The epidemic prevention time should be carried out separately for different diseases, and it must not be done in one time. This is not only stressful to the flock, but also affects the normal absorption of the vaccine. Chicken farmers in rural areas should pay attention to it, and arrange the immunization time reasonably, and arrange the deworming to be around 110 days of age.
Two, rectify the weak young
Weak chickens should be caught and fed separately in time before the chicken flocks start to give birth to ensure the uniformity of the chicken flocks, and the weak chickens should be fed and strengthened. Individuals with no feeding value should be decisively eliminated . For this reason, the beak should be cut once in due course according to the actual situation.
Three, check the chicken coop
If the chickens are basketed before the start of labor, the cages should be carefully inspected, thoroughly disinfected, and damaged or deformed parts should be repaired in time to prevent egg breakage. According to actual production findings, the egg breakage rate due to chicken cages has always been high.
Fourth, adjust the diet
Before and after the age of 110 days, if the growth and development of the chicken meet the standard, the feed can be adjusted and changed in time to meet the egg production needs of the chicken group. You can directly change the feeding material (don’t add shell powder), and feed the full price layer material when 5% of the eggs are laid, so as to provide the nutritional reserves of the eggs.
5. Increase light
With the start of production, the light should be gradually increased. It is advisable for the chickens to lay eggs up to 17 hours at the peak. It is better to make up both ends in the morning and evening. Do not reduce the light at will after the start of delivery.
6. Avoid stress
Newborn chickens are excited and highly neurotic. Try to avoid disturbing the flock to avoid stress.
