In livestock and poultry, especially in young birds such as chicks, ducks, piglets, infrared rays help:
Keep warm and warm inside and out of the body to prevent chickens, pigs and ducks from losing heat so they do not deplete the immune system.
– Promotes blood circulation in the body of chickens, pigs and ducks. This helps the metabolism to grow faster, faster, natural pink skin.
Chicken, duck and pigs are always kept warm inside the body and the air outside the environment they breathe should minimize the contamination of infectious diseases such as respiratory diseases, typhoid and influenza. cold. Limit diarrhea to pets, lose weight, lose water.
– The effect of the red light of the infrared light also makes the pet relax. This light has a direct effect on the muscles, joints and nerve endings that make the pet relax, not shock or stress.
– Infrared light also acts as a catalyst for metabolism and absorption of calcium, phosphorus, vitamin d, a, e help pets avoid rickets, slow growth. Thanks to its ability to enhance the absorption of minerals from a young age, animals will have strong bones, large and solid bones.
– Infrared light works to clean the animal’s environment by penetrating through layers of litter. This ability to kill pathogens in the environment, reduce odors and create a fresh air environment.
Notes when using infrared lamps for heating:
Do not expose the infrared light or contact with pets, the distance from the infrared light to the skin about 50-100cm. Do not hang the lights too low because pets may collide with the light bulb causing damage to the lamp or the life of the bulb.
Do not hang up too much light, this will cause the pet to overheat and spend unnecessary costs.
+ The best hangers are the natural hanging lights which help to optimize the use of light and heat.
+ Do not let the water flow or infiltrate the light bulbs because the lamp uses 220v power should be absolutely safe when designed or installed.
If possible, use natural light to keep pets warm during daylight hours to save energy and increase shelf life.
Do not use infrared bulbs for warmth, do not use conventional incandescent bulbs to warm the animals because regular incandescent bulbs have a lot of harmful radiation to the health of pets and Energy efficiency (more power for the same heating effect).
If heating and lighting should be combined, use infrared lamps for heating and fluorescent lighting. This combination will be very economical and create a warm natural light environment for pets.
+ The light in the stage of chicken in the first 3 weeks must ensure 24/14 hours, then gradually down. From 4 to 6 weeks of age, it takes 16 hours / day, from 7-8 weeks of age to 8-9 hours / day.
+ Natural light is best during the day, as natural light has sun rays that will help chicks shift ca, p and vitamin D synthesis very well.
+ In case of need to buy new electric light and if using electric light must pay attention to the distribution.
+ Light intensity is 4w / m2 for chickens under 3 weeks old. 3w / m2 for chicken from 4-8 weeks and 9-14 weeks old for 2w / m2 or natural light.
Points to note when chickens:
– Chicken coops must be dry and warm in winter, cool in summer, absolutely avoid the winds.
During congestion we have to observe often to adjust the heat enough to warm the chicken. If the lack of heat chicken will be reduced resistance, susceptible to disease, reduced food, even diarrhea, causing stunting phenomenon, chicken is not uniform. Therefore, before the chicken is caught, it must be provided to the house and the chicken coop is sufficiently warm as described above.
Note: In the case of transporting chicks from remote areas, the nursery must have specialized transportation equipment, if not shielding wind, rain cover and urgently and cautiously in the process of transportation.
The water in the first 1-2 days must be 30-35 degrees Celsius in winter and 20-25 degrees Celsius in summer is best to help the chicken body not lose heat and to eliminate stress after We recommend 5g glucose, 1g vitamin C pure or 2g vitamin b.complex mixed in 1 liter of water for chicken to drink. If the best condition is to get a small amount of fish oil or ad3e directly into the mouth of each chicken, b.complex will help the healthy chicken raise its resistance.
Note: Do not let the chicken run out of water. Water in the trough, in addition to providing water to chickens also have the function of moisture balance in the environment to help the chicken is not hairless and dehydrated.
– Feed for chicks must meet the nutritional standards and be fully fed. As the birds are infused with infrared light, they will eat more and grow bigger, so it is important to note that feeding is sufficient. If nutrition is not enough and right, it causes a bite.
