So, let’s quickly highlight some important steps in taking effective and proper care of your young broiler chicks.
Successful rearing of these chickens does not only depend on feeding, but also on living conditions, for example, if a queue is formed near the feeding troughs, it is understandable that not all birds will be able to eat, because they are not all of equal strengths.
It is very important and necessary to arrange the dishes properly, so as to avoid crowding, and also observe hygiene, because we all know that unsanitary conditions can lead to digestive disorders, which directly or indirectly affect the growth of broilers. As the dishes get dirty, try to treat the containers with hot water.
Feeders fill on 1/3, it is better once again to pour fresh food, rather than throw out the old one, depending on your caging system for birds.
From 7 days to half months of age, twice a week, chickens should be soldered with 0.1% manganese solution. Manganese (Mn) is an element required in nutrition, functioning largely in the enzyme systems involved in lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. It plays an important role in growth, bone development, perosis prevention, optimal eggshell quality and performance maintenance of poultry (Researchgate.net).
Drinks poured for 30 minutes in the morning, then rinse and fill with clean water. This procedure is designed to normalize the digestive system of broiler chickens.
Weak and untidy birds should be isolated in individual cells. For them it will be like a resort on which they will gain strength. You just have to give them most of the time and special food from the pipette. The recipe is very simple – 1/2 cup of fresh milk to egg yolk, stir. After 2-3 such procedures, the chicks quickly “get on their feet”. If your chickens aren’t pastured, Jacob says you can supplement their diet to get an orange yolk.
Feeding broilers for meat at home only seems so time consuming, in fact, if you prepare all the preforms in advance, taking into account the needs of pets, caring for them will become simple and favorable. The main thing is to observe the basic principles of their nutrition and content.
