(1) The appropriate temperature of egg breeding equipment for raising chicks: the brooding temperature for egg chicks: 35-33℃ for 1-2 days, 33-32℃ for 3-7 days, and then about 2-3℃ per week, until about 21-18℃ for 5-6 weeks old. The supply of temperature is appropriate, in addition to observing the thermometer, should also observe the behavior of the chick state. For example, when the temperature is normal, the chicks are lively, good appetite, moderate drinking, sleep quietly, comfortable sleeping position stretching, more ambulatory, the entire brooder chicks are evenly distributed; when the temperature is high, chicks away from the heat source, two wings spread, stretching neck open mouth panting, frequent drinking, poor appetite; when the temperature is low, chicks dense and as close as possible to the heat source, crowded pile, shivering, a burst of fear of cold When the temperature is low, the chicks are dense and as close to the heat source as possible, crowding and piling up, shivering, making a burst of fear of the cold "which Qing" sound, and losing appetite. Chicks are more sensitive to the sensation of cold and warmth, so special attention should be paid to prevent sudden high and low temperatures, and make greater efforts to maintain a balanced temperature. When mastering the temperature, the temperature should be higher at night or on rainy and snowy days; during the day when the chicks are active and the weather is warm, the temperature should be lower; the temperature of weak chicks should be higher and the temperature of healthy chicks can be lower.
(2) Suitable humidity for chickens with egg breeding equipment: Humidity is closely related to the evaporation of water from the chicken's body, body heat emission and the cleanliness of the chicken coop.
When the humidity is low and high, the chickens will lose too much water, which may lead to dehydration. In addition, the dryness of the house and the dust caused by the dust, easy to induce respiratory diseases.
②When the low temperature and high humidity, the house is both cold and wet, chicks are easy to catch cold and cause wet bedding, and gastrointestinal diseases and coccidiosis.
③ When high temperature and high humidity, the heat in the chicks is not easily distributed normally, stuffy, appetite decreases, growth is slow, and resistance is weakened.
It is appropriate to keep the henhouse of egg breeding equipment dry, which can prevent bacterial reproduction and infection, but the relative humidity should not be lower than 40%. The appropriate relative humidity is 60% -65% before 10 days of age and 50%-60% after 10 days of age. When the humidity is not enough, water can be sprinkled on the corridor, ground, surrounding walls or above the flue, and water basins can be placed on the heat source to evaporate water vapor to increase the humidity in the house; when the humidity is too high, a moisture-proof layer can be laid on the ground in the chicken coop to properly raise the temperature in the coop, strengthen ventilation and air exchange, change the bedding in the flat chicken coop diligently, remove the wet manure and bedding in the coop in time, and prevent the water dispenser from leaking.
