If you have decided to set up a poultry farm, we advise you on what equipment you may need. The equipment will be different for laying hens and broilers. So, you must first be clear about what you are going to produce.

Types of poultry farms

– Broilers.

– Laying hens.

– Free range hens.

– Chick rearing.

Farm equipment for broilers

Broilers can be raised in cages or on the floor.

If you are going to produce in cages, you need:

  • Broiler cage, e.g. model Broiler.
  • Watering systems inside the cells.
  • Feeding system (trotter or chain).
  • Cleaning system. Poultry manure belt.

–     Climate control system (extractors, cellulose panels, temperature, humidity and ammonia sensors).

–  Lighting system.

If you are going to raise chickens on the floor, you will need different feeding and drinking systems, e.g. from Corti Zootecnici.
