Due to the lack of breeding information, the management of laying hens before and after laying is often looser than during the peak laying period. In fact, in order to make the flock high and stable, the management work before and after the start of production is very important.
1. Regular deworming and epidemic prevention
Do all kinds of epidemic prevention before laying hens. Epidemic prevention time is carried out separately according to different diseases, not all at once. This is not only stressful to the flock, but also affects the normal absorption of the vaccine. Chicken farmers should pay attention to it, arrange the immunization time reasonably, and arrange the deworming to be around 110 days of age.
2. Rectify the weak young
Weak chickens are caught and fed separately in time before the flock starts to give birth to ensure the uniformity of the flock. Weak chicks should be fed to support weak chicks, and individual ones with no feeding value should be eliminated decisively. For this reason, the beak should be cut off at the right time according to the actual situation.
3. Check the chicken coop
If the chickens are basketed before the start of labor, the cages should be carefully inspected, thoroughly disinfected, and damaged or deformed parts should be repaired in time to prevent egg breakage.
4. Adjust the ration
Before and after the age of 110 days, if the growth and development of the chicken meet the standards, it can be adjusted and changed in time to meet the egg production needs of the chicken group. You can directly change the feeding material (don’t add shell powder), and feed the full price layer material when 5% of the eggs are laid, so as to provide the nutritional reserves of the eggs.
5. Increase light
As the chickens start to produce, the light should be gradually increased. It is advisable for the chickens to lay eggs up to 17 hours at the peak.
6. Avoid stress
primiparous chickens are excited and highly neurotic. Avoid disturbing the flock as much as possible to avoid stress.
