What is the daily feed intake of chickens (layers and broilers)
1. Calculation method of daily feed intake of laying hens
10 days before age: (day age + 2)g
10-20 days old: (day age+1)g
20-50 days old: grams of material used = day age
51-150 days age: 50+ (day age-50)/2
Breeding chickens over 150 days old: stable over 100g
Egg-laying peak: about 120g
Fed according to the above calculation method, a hen consumes 8.84kg from birth to 150 days of age, and a layer consumes 36.5kg a year, which can basically meet the needs of laying eggs.
2. Calculation method of daily feed intake of broilers
(Subject to Ross 308 broiler,it is a breed with strong physique, high survival rate, fast weight gain and high meat yield.)
1-10 days old: the first day: 6g, and then increase by 4g per day, such as: 7 days: 30g
11-20 days age: (day age -2)/10*50, such as: 15 days: 65g
21-30 days old: (day age-1)/10*50, such as: 125g in 26 days
31-40 days old: day age/10*50, such as: 35 days 175g
40-50 days old: 200g
Under normal circumstances, feed with full-price feed, each chicken will eat 4.5kg of feed until the slaughter, and the average weight can reach 2.5kg. During normal breeding, the flock should not exceed the feed intake of the day. If it exceeds, the flock is considered abnormal. In the process of feeding and management, it is necessary to appropriately limit its feed intake, otherwise the chickens will be prone to disease or difficult to control after the disease.
