Dimension of Water for Poultry Birds

Water management is the most critical components in a top-performing broiler flock. In high performing flocks, at around 21˚C, cutting edge broilers by and large will consume 1.8 to 2 times more water than feed, in weight. Water consumption will change contingent upon ecological temperature, feed quality and bird health:

1.         Water consumption increases by 6% for each expansion in 1˚C between 20-32°C.

2.         Water consumption increases by 5% for each expansion in 1˚C between 32-38°C.

3.         Feed consumption diminishes by 1.23% for each expansion in 1˚C over 20°C.

Any considerable change in water utilization should be researched as this may show a water leak, health issues or feed problem. A drop in water consumption is frequently the primary marker of a flock issue. To assess flock performance legitimately we have to know how much water birds are consuming each day.

Large portions of today’s high performance broilers are being brought up in housing built for the broiler of the past. There are numerous alternatives used to guarantee water volume/stream will address bird issues at high pinnacle request times. Advanced water meters associated with the house controller can screen water consumption on a 24-hour premise as well as in distributed time increases amid the day. This data can figure out whether our water system is keeping up at basic ‘appeal’ times, as when the lights go ahead after a dull period. Knowing this can be extremely useful in finding performance issues on a ranch, particularly one with huge, multi-houses.

The temperature of the water that birds are drinking should also be considered. The perfect water temperature ought to associate with 10-14˚C originating from the source. Water consumed by the birds should not be over 30˚C. In the event that this happens the drinking system ought to be flushed intermittently to look after cooler, fresher water.

Along with temperature and accessibility the quality of water offered to chickens should be considered for proper growth of Broilers. The quality of water depends on several factors such as presence of bacteria and other microbes, PH, Level of minerals etc. Disinfectants like Chlorine are widely used in poultry industry for disinfection of water but it has many disadvantages such as carcinogenicity, ph dependent activity, highly corrosive and irritating substance. To avoid such problems and to improve performance of broilers Vinayak ingredients has launched an excellent product Herbofloxin which is blend of essential oils effective as Non- antibiotic growth promoter. It is used to replace disinfectants, antibioticts and acidifier used for growth promotion in water.

MOA of Herbofloxin: – It is a micro emulsion when mixed with a water forms nanoemulsion making it easier to penetrate bacterial cell wall and disrupt it. It is stable at 5 to 45 degree Celsius temperature and has long shelf life.

The advantages of Herbofloxin are as follows:-

  • More than 10% improvement in weight gain
  • Chlorine free meat
  • Pathogen free meat
  • No antibiotic residue
  • Carcass sanitizer
  • Litter improver

How to manage the temperature in the poultry house

Right litter and surrounding temperatures are fundamental to guarantee chick activity. Pre-heating is essential and starts no less than 24 to 48 hours preceding situation, even during summer and in tropical places. This will guarantee the litter temperature is no less than 32°C (90°F), with the air and interior structures enough heated at position. Inability to accomplish this objective will lessen activity and lower feed utilization, so the grower will lose the chance to quadruple day-old chick weight in the principal week. A recently hatched chick can’t control its own particular body temperature until completely thermo-component at 14 days old. Their fundamental temperature runs between 40 to 41°C (104–106°F), expanding to 41–42°C (106–108°F) by 5 days of age. A fundamental temperature above 41°C (106°F) present incubate will lead on panting and beneath 39.5°C (103°F) decreased activity and low feed utilization. Keep in mind to dependably gauge a chick’s fundamental temperature when it is totally dry post hatch.

A yolk sac contains 1–2 grams of dampness, with two sections fat and one section protein. On the off chance that early feed utilization is constrained, the chick will utilize both fat and protein in the yolk for vitality leaving lacking protein levels for ideal development. Continuously utilize fowl conduct as an essential manual for gauge comfort levels.

Comfortable chicks inhale through their nostrils and will just lose 1–2g of dampness in the initial 24 hours. A chick that breathes heavily can lose as much as 5–10 grams of moisture in the initial 24 hours. Dry bulb temperature, air development and relative humidity are connected. An expansion in relative humidity will diminish moisture loss yet can likewise minimize the chicks heat loss capacities, so right temperature and RH is essential (a lower RH% requires a higher dry bulb temperature). Besides, chicks are extremely subtle to air development until they are completely feathered at 25 days of age.

See the accompanying temperature control:

Age in days Relative humidity Temperature below 30 degrees Temperature above 30 degrees
0 30-50 34 33
7 40-60 31 30
14 40-60 27 27
21 40-60 24 24
28 50-70 21 21
35 50-70 19 19

As showed in the temperature direct, chicks from smaller eggs require higher brooding temperatures, around 1°C more for the initial fourteen days. If the humidity shows less than guide, increase the temperature by 0.5 to 1°C (1°F). If the humidity is more than above, decrease house temperature by 0.5 to 1°C (1°F) for the first 14 days.

Careful consideration of the five fundamentals driving early feed utilization and development will guarantee the grower captures the most extreme capability of the slightest cost advantage gave by the Cobb500.
