How to choose the chicken farming equipment you need?

  1. If you have less than 2,000 layer chickens we advise you to only buy poultry cage. The drinking system is automated, but workers need to feed the chicken manually, as well as collect the eggs, and remove the droppings.
  2. If you have 5,000 – 10,000 chickens we suggest you purchase the manure removal machine as well as poultry battery cages. By removing the manure timeously, you will reduce the possibility of disease and improve the egg production rate, at the same time saving even more time and labor costs. The scraper type manure removal machine is the most economical type. A semi-automatic chicken feeding machine is also necessary for this quantity of chickens. It is small and costs less than a fully automatic chicken feeder machine, and because it uses a poultry battery cage system, you will avoid the inconvenience of power failures. You can feed 10,000 chickens in just half an hour, and save a lot on labor.
  3. If you have more than 10,000 layer chickens you may need to get fully automatic poultry equipment including battery cage system, automatic chicken feeder and waterer, automatic egg collector, as well as poultry manure scraper (automatic manure removal system). If the scale of your operation exceeds 50,000 chickens, you will need feed silos. For less than 50,000 chickens you can just use one screw conveyor to convey the food to the hopper. If you want to build a closed poultry house design, you need to know that an exhaust fan and cooling pad are necessary environment control equipment items. If you use an open house system and the weather is hot, you can use a fogger.

Or you can just contact us directly, tell us how many chickens you want to feed, whether you have built the chicken house yet, or what the size of your chicken house needs to be. We will arrange for our sales team to contact you to give you reasonable solution.





The best raw materials of battery cage system

As one of the most professional layer cages manufacturers and suppliers, we always use quality materials. The hardness of metal wire depends on its carbon content. The metal wire we use for our layer chicken cage comes from a large steel factory in China and it is very tough and hard, as well as ductile and malleable so that it is not damaged under stress. Our chicken battery cage system in poultry farming generally has a service life that is at least 3 years more than our competitors.

Service life up to 30 years

The heavy galvanized or Galfan coating on mesh surface of layer cage will ensure your chicken cages protected from corrosion and rust for at least 20 years, while the battery cage system itself will last for double this time.

The big sliding door design makes it easy to manage the chickens. The density of the bottom cage mesh also prevents feather and anus pecking, and minimizes layer chicken fatigue syndrome.

Free layout design

We offer a free design service based on the size of poultry house or coop you want.

  • Chickens will start laying eggs when they are between 12 and 16 weeks old. So when they are this age, transfer them to the layer cage
  • We can provide a free layout design according to your chicken coop size. Alternatively, we can give you suitable advice according to the quantity of chickens you want to feed if you have not already built your chicken house.
  • Our semi-automatic chicken feeder is 0.55 m wide. The minimum width to be able to use our semi-automatic chicken feeder is 0.7 m, but if your area is very hot, and the scale of the chicken house is large, the width can be bigger to ensure good ventilation. Usually we design walkways to be between 0.7 m and 1.2 m.
  • If you plan to use our manure scraper, the depth of the channel should be about 50 cm.
  • The 3-tier chicken cage is 1.5m long and the 4-tier cage is 1.95m, so the height of the chicken house should be about 2.8 m to 3 m.
