Precautions to save chickens from heat

In the summer chickens should be taken care especially, because they do not have sweat glands in their skin, due to which there is no evaporation of water from their skin.

• The structure of poultry farm should be in east to west direction and airy.

Plant eucalyptus and poplar tree around the poultry farm to give proper shade.

To protect the chickens from the heat waves, put wet sacks on the windows, but keep in mind that one third of the poultry farm should be open.

Do not keep the thickness of straw in the shed above than two inches, so that the heat does not increase much and change the old straw before the summer comes.

In the summer, chickens drink more water, so give fresh, cold and clean water 4-5 times a day.

Increase the dosage of chickens in summer and also increase the amount of vitamins, minerals and protein about 20-30 % in the dose.
