Be a chicken too

Poultry education: Step by step

Numerous books and treatises on broiler breeding have been written, but there is still much to be written that is comprehensive and covers all stages of farming and is easy to communicate effectively with the poultry community and relies on practical and useful tips. , it is empty. This article is an attempt to fill this void. The practical training of useful tips and avoidance of theoretical and theoretical points and the introduction of step-by-step material from one-day-old chickens to poultry are marketable. It has also tried not to indulge in grammatical but grammatical reasons, so as to illuminate in the bird's mind the importance and necessity of each instruction, thereby creating a greater willingness to try and take it seriously.

The other point is that the material in this booklet largely relies on the author's personal experiences of 15 years, which at times are completely personal and not included in the writings of others.


  • Since our main focus is on breeding, it is assumed that the poultry building has the minimum standards required, and since these standards are usually the guidelines of the licensing authority, we omit a detailed hint. Tips such as:
  • Orient to the east west building.
  • The location of the ventilators in such a way that high winds do not disturb their performance.
  • Appropriate distance (about 1.5 km) from other poultry farms.
  • It is preferred to consider the capacity of the halls as 5000 units. Because of the uniformity of air flow in these halls is more possible and minimizes the difference of air flow and humidity and heat in different parts of the hall. In long halls, these factors are more difficult to reach and far from accessible.

Biological protection

Biosecurity in new sources is more emphasized than ever. This protection includes a set of preventive measures against the infestation of the poultry environment, the most important of which are:

  • Fencing and landscaping to prevent unauthorized entry of wild and domestic animals.
  • Controlling traffic at the farm entrance by posting security guards or at least physical barriers (such as doors, chains, etc.)
  • The green space should be at least 15 meters from the walls of the farm. The explanation is that these spaces may disrupt the thermal balance of the hall by absorbing light and heat.
  • Use appropriate disinfectants at the farm entrance and hall entrances. These disinfectants should be changed from time to time to close the door on potential microbial resistance.
  • Those who wish to enter the hall for any reason should wear special clothing and footwear and take a shower if possible.
  • To have complete control over the change of clothes and shoes, try to distinguish the colors of the clothes and shoes in the different areas of the poultry (such as salons, yards and entrances) to minimize the possibility of error and error.
  • Avoid keeping indigenous poultry in and around poultry. Because they have not received the necessary vaccines, they pose a significant risk of transmitting diseases - especially viral and dangerous types such as Newcastle disease and influenza. In addition, because the poultry is older than the herd, they can always be the carrier of the disease without being infected. In other words, these poultry species, usually due to their gradual adaptation to the environment, can carry and adapt to various disease agents that they have passed through or adapted to.
  • Baiting for insidious animals, and especially mice that have a significant role in transmitting diseases such as Salmonella, must be considered. The use of special glues to trap mice in their traffic is usually successful.
