How To Manage Laying Hens Well During High Temperature Season

Summer is a special season, chickens eat less because of high temperature, the production performance degradation, serious can even lead to death, and in the hot summer, germs breed quickly,disease occurs frequently , so farmers need efficient management to improve laying rate

The optimum environmental temperature for laying hens is 13-20℃, if the temperature is higher than 29 ℃, the laying rate is reduced by 5% ~ 10%,If the temperature reached 37.8 ℃, chicken has the risk of heatstroke.
In the hot summer, when temperature in poultry house higher than 25℃, laying hens feed intake decrease, the nutrients intake reducing follow, laying rate and the quality of eggs will come down. So in the summer adopt effective measures of cooling to reduce the high temperature stress is very necessary.

Firstly,reduce the rearing density to lower the poultry house inner temperature, or improve the poultry house facilities, like setting heat-insulation outside poultry house, installing cooling spray, ventilating by window, painted poultry house wall and top in white color to reduce the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.

Secondly, remove the manure out off the poultry house on time, the laying hens manure ferment produce heat and emit harmful gas, cleaning the manure  twice per day in the summer

Scientifically adjust the feeds formulate
The laying hens during the production period has high requirement of calcium, phosphorus, add those substances into the feeds appropriately is necessary, this measure also helpful for the laying hens adapt the stress of the high temperature.
Besides ensure the supplying of protein and normally metabolism necessary nutrients, increase calcium, phosphorus,vitamins,amino acids and other substances offering also important. Supply the calcium and other minerals by adding 1-2% bone flour or 2% shell powder. In the summer, add a small amount of grease to the feed,can improve the level of metabolism and promote the intake amount of laying hens,reduce body heat dissipation.

Ensure that cool and refreshing drink
Usually layer chicken average water consumption each bird 180 ~ 250 ml per day,water temperature around 10 ℃ as appropriate, exposed pipe on the ground should be buried in the ground below 30 cm, prevent the water  heated by sunshine.Especially ensure water continuously throughout the day, and keep the water clean, also can add electrolyte in water to satisfy the demands of the chicken body

Strengthen daily management
Illumination control is an important measure of laying hens breeding, during the high temperature season insist turn on and off the light earlier,general at 3:00 - 4:00am turn on the lights, at 19:00pm to turn off the lights is preferred.
Feeding before the temperature goes up in the morning, and before you turn of the light at night, the temperature is a relatively cool during this time, could make sure each laying hen intake enough feeds, meanwhile, in order to reduce body heat dissipation you should decrease laying hens activity.especially in 13:00-15:00pm stop feeding, the hottest weather at this time.

Completes the disease prevention
Summer should focus on prevention of chicken coccidiosis, and farm workers, hen house floors, walls, chicken cages, sink need effective disinfection, th farms should alternate use 3 ~ 5 kinds of disinfection medicine regularly, avoid resistant bacteria, improve the effect of disinfection.In addition, chicken farms shall attention to deratization, miewenying,desinsectization time to time.To guarantee the stability environment for laying hens.
