Every 1000 chickens of 1 day old should have 20-25 drinking fountains of about 4 liters with fresh clean drinking water. Some customers often suffer from water shortages due to insufficient water dispensers, and there are “dry chickens” in the chickens. Such chicks grow slowly and affect the uniformity of the chickens. The drinker should be placed near the heat source and placed alternately with the feeder.
Do not stop water, and require drinking water to be clean and hygienic, free of pathogenic microorganisms, and the drinker is cleaned and disinfected before loading water.
Excessive water lines when using the automatic water dispenser, 5-7 days old, should gradually move the drinker next to the automatic drinker. At 8-10 days of age, the drinker should be gradually removed several times a day to enable the chicks to discover new sources of water. If necessary, leave the drinker for 14 days so that the chicks have plenty of time to fully adapt to the automatic drinker.
If using a drinking trough, each chicken must have at least 2 cm of straight drinking position (including the location on both sides of the trough).
The height of the drinker should be properly adjusted with the growth of the chicken. The edge of the drinker is the same as the height of the back of the chicken, which can reduce the water spill, keep the litter dry, and help the chicken drink water.
The drinking fountain should be placed so that the chicken can drink water within 2.0m.
