A note from our Nutrition Department:
Tips and suggestions for Spring and Summer poultry flocks:
- Insure your flock has ample supply of fresh water for indoor and outdoor flocks. For outdoor flocks put water source out of the sun and in a container that will not attract heat.
- For indoor water supply if you can insulate your water lines to prevent condensation getting into the litter. If this cannot be done adding extra bedding under the water lines can help keep the litter drier and more manageable. Also when walking the barns always be aware of loose nipples to lower the chances of water leaks.
- Proper ventilation is key during summer, outdoor flocks should be positioned where there is proper air flow and should have some sort of shelter and shade provided. Broiler barns should also have proper airflow, if not your C02 can climb quickly.
- It is always a good idea to have some source of Electrolytes on hand to be added into your water source. Much like humans birds sometime need a boost during hot humid periods. This should be administered with direction from your flock vet.
- Walking your barns later at night is a key component for cooling down your flock during higher heat conditions, by doing this the birds will get up and the exercise will decrease their body temp. This will help decrease the chance of flocks overheating thus this will help maintain a healthier flock.
