7 Tactics Used By Farmers To Increase Egg Production

According to HPL magazine, a farmer must be familiar with chicken production capacities, as well as the factors that influence egg production and why some chickens are not laying. An egg takes 26 hours to fully develop. As the hens continue to lay eggs, the number of eggs produced decreases compared to previous years. Each year, the size of the eggs becomes larger, while the quality of the shells deteriorates. The number of eggs produced and the length of time it takes to produce them are determined by the following factors.

1. Reproduction

Some hens produce a lot of eggs right away, but some hens lay for longer periods. Breeds have been established expressly for the production of eggs. Others produce brown or white eggs, but there are no nutritional distinctions between them.

2. Management of Pullets

Give them the proper nutrients and light so that when they begin to lay eggs, the quantity and quality of the eggs will improve. If pellets are produced too soon, they will have a prolapse problem. During their reproductive cycle, they may also lay tiny eggs.

3. Management of Light For All-Year Production

One-day chicks are kept in a light environment for 23 to 24 hours per day so that they can see food and water when they are a month old. When they are pellets, restrict light to fewer than 8 hours. To stimulate them, increase light exposure when they are about to lay.

4. Nutrition

Any type of chicken, regardless of age, requires a well-balanced diet. There are many sorts of chicken feeds for different types and ages of hens. For the formation of eggshells, laying chickens should be fed calcium-rich diets.

5. Allowances for Space

The amount of room required is determined by the size of the chicken and the type of housing utilized. You can include perches for the hens to sleep on. Laying hens require ample area to produce properly.

6. Treatment and Prevention of Disease

The performance of a flock that is or has been sick will be poor. They should be immunized against diseases that can be prevented.

7. Preventing Parasites

Internal and external parasites can infest the chicken flock, putting the hen under stress. It affects the digestive tract and lowers the performance of hens. Hens
