Poultry Farming in Nigeria: How to Avoid Overcrowding the Chicken Pen   Leave a comment

Poultry Farming: How to Avoid Overstocking in the Deep Litter System

Many Nigerians do deep litter system because the poultry battery system is more capital intensive and the battery cages too costly to acquire. But the common mistake many make in setting up a deep litter system is overcrowding which causes serious problems.

Overcrowding chickens is a serious hazard that can cause poor egg production in layers chicken farming. From inception, the farmer should know how many chickens his chicken pen can safely accommodate at various ages of development of the chickens.

For example, if the intended poultry chicken pen size is 40 feet by 40 feet, he should know how many chickens the pen can accommodate by the time the chickens enter the egg laying phase. If he is starting with day old chickens, how many chickens can a brooders house of a certain size accommodate?

The solution is to know the amount of square feet of space that a poultry chicken requires at various ages of development from brooder status to egg laying ages. Not to know this is to plan for avoidable stress and failure.

if the farmer can calculate from inception how many chickens his intended chicken pen size can reasonably accommodate in the egg laying phase that the chickens are fully matured, he will know how many chickens to buy as starting stock. Many buy more than necessary and find out too late that they have overstocked and cannot quickly expand their facilities.
