The humid environment is also very easy to cause the frequent occurrence of coccidiosis and the low humidity in high temperature seasons. The chicken house is hot and humid, and the flocks are prone to heatstroke. The brooding period and high temperature occur together, which can easily cause the chicks to suffocate.

In the case of proper quantity, ventilation and ventilation according to the machine, good output, contradictions between ventilation and heat preservation work.

(2) The stocking density should not be too high: In winter, the temperature is low, and many farmers will increase the stocking density to keep warm from the cold. However, if the stocking density is too high, it will cause the chickens to be crowded, which is not good for moisture prevention. It should be noted that the stocking density is appropriate.

(3) Leakage of drinking equipment: We must strictly prevent the leakage of drinking equipment. Once discovered, seal or replace it in time, and clean up the leakage in time.

(7) Improve the microclimate in the chicken house: In winter, the chicken house is mainly insulated, and the temperature of the chicken house should not be lower than 12 degrees. To prevent low temperature and excessive humidity, it is best to install heating equipment.
