Chickens in the stage of just hatching until the end of the first week must be kept in a closed coop and heated by electricity 24/24 to ensure the temperature is always at 37-38 degrees Celsius. And chickens in the 2nd week onwards until the time of sale just need to make sure Make sure the temperature in the barn is above 30 degrees Celsius.

Light must be enough

The first 3 weeks of chicks need lighting 24/24, after 4-6 weeks, it will be gradually reduced to 16 hours, from 7-8 weeks using natural light to ensure the intensity of 3W/m2 is enough.

Drinking water must be clean

Care technique

Stage 0 to 1 week old

At this stage, the internal organs, especially the digestive system, are not yet complete, the stomach muscles have not been able to digest hard foods, and the digestive system is not complete. Therefore, it is necessary to create the best conditions for them to grow fast and healthy.

It is necessary to arrange a heating cap because the chicks after hatching are not able to regulate their body temperature. Can be heated by electricity (mayso wire and heating hood) or by infrared light. Depending on the number of 1-day-old chicks and the temperature of the coop, arrange a reasonable heating system.

Chicken coop: Chicken coop is used to brood chicks for the first 14 days. Material made of pressed cork, plastic sheet or iron mesh, height 50-60cm, diameter 1.5 – 2m. Each cage can hold 100-130 chicks a day old is best, should not raise many because if the chickens are crushed, piled up will cause many deaths.

Food and baking drinks: Ensure good quality, not stale, especially need to add shell powder 2-3 times more than the previous stages to create eggshells. It is possible to use 8-10% of sprouted grain in feed to ensure fertility and embryo ratio.

The amount of feed a day depends on the laying rate of chickens, must be calculated 1-2 weeks in advance. When laying hens are high, the amount of feed must be increased and vice versa.
