In our country, chickens lay 60-65 eggs a year almost free of cost in a rural family environment in a completely abandoned-feeding system. These hens hatch at the end of each laying of eggs (12-14) and raise the chicks under their own care. Their eggs weigh 40-45 grams and are relatively resistant to disease. On the other hand, more foreign laying hens lay about 320 eggs a year and the average weight of each egg is 56 grams. It goes without saying that these chickens do not have a tendency to curl, but the disease resistance in our country’s climate is very low. Considering these realities, in the hope of getting more (150-160) eggs weighing more than the domestic eggs, the Department of Livestock of our country has introduced medium weight light golden colored chickens by crossbreeding RIR breed chickens and Faumi breed chickens. These hens are now known as “golden hens”. The management system of rearing golden hens and laying hens is very similar to that of foreign hens.

Rules for keeping golden hens: –

Place Management: –

How much space you usually keep per hen in golden hens will depend on how long you keep the hens or how much weight you keep in the house.

Sonali is usually celebrated with 60 days in mind. Sometimes the weight does not come to the desired level or the market price is low, so the chicken has to be kept in the farm for more than 60 days.

Now let’s come to the main point. Normal 0.650-0.950 square feet of space per hen is to be provided. Also, if bamboo is tied to the poles inside the house, 200-300 chickens or more chickens can be reared depending on the location of the house.

Usually everyone raises too many chickens on the farm compared to the place. In particular, keep in mind that keeping more chickens in a house can increase the mortality rate of chickens due to viral diseases. In Ranikhet and Gumboro diseases in particular, the mortality rate is much higher due to the high concentration of chickens.

Another consequence of excessive chicken density is that chickens are more susceptible to colds. This is because the gas stored in the house or the air coming from outside cannot move properly inside the house. That is why the problem of cold and headache is more common.

In the case of golden hens, if there are more chickens than in the house, the number of stalks increases a lot.

So it is always better to have less chicken and more cotton than the house space. However, a little more babies can be raised in the winter.

First of all, it is better not to follow the medicine program in keeping chickens. Because if you are healthy, you cannot be forced to take medicine or you cannot take medicine yourself. The same is true of chickens. As healthy as you are, you will be healthier, you will be able to reduce the cost of medicine by 70% if you have a living environment and farm environment, clean drinking water and germ free. The rest will help you with your skills, hard work and patience.

Whether it is golden or broiler, give salt water 5 feet away from the floor of the house and next to the farm. 500 grams per 100 liters of water. After drying, apply 1 kg of lime per 1000 sq. Ft. Of soil. After drying it, spray everything in the house with any good disinfectant.

Get the water tested. The amount of bacteria or the amount of iron. Therefore, it is very important to test the pH of the water. Later he will purify the water accordingly.

One of the things is to reduce costs and increase dividends.

Brooding Management: –

It is to be done from three hours after the arrival of the baby to the first 24 hours after arrival

All the necessary items of the brooder such as litter paper, chickguard, water, hover, food container should be placed in the appropriate place three hours in advance.

Turn on the hover light two to three hours in advance and check the thermometer readings after one hour.

Half an hour before the baby arrives you can spray lightly on the paper around and inside the brooder with a water soluble probiotic

Water containers and food containers should be placed in the appropriate place 10 minutes before the arrival of the baby.

After the baby arrives, leave the baby’s box in the shed for a while for about 10 minutes

Then weigh each box with the baby and write it down in the notebook. If you subtract the weight of the next empty box with the box number, you will get the weight of one day old baby.

Then leave the baby in each brooder and monitor the baby’s condition (vaccinate one by one if you want to be vaccinated)

If the baby is weak, separate it, and feed it with boiled glucose water.

If the baby is strong, give only sterile white water for the first two hours. If the child is weak, give glucose water.

Give food 10 minutes after the baby arrives. In this case, only sprinkle it on the paper for the first time and from then on, you must give food in the tray.

Examine at least 10% of the baby’s food sacs after one hour and see if there are light soft foods and water pulp. Apply the sole of the baby’s feet to your face to see if the yolk is warm. If so, understand that the child’s brooding is appropriate.

After two hours, if you want, you can give glucose water, even if you give white water (but you have to be sterile), this will continue for the next 22 hours.

The child’s condition should be monitored for 3 consecutive hours to see if the heat is too high. If there is any problem, it should be solved and if the child is dead, it should be removed. When the drinking water is finished, drinking water should be given. If the paper gets wet, you have to change it.

After 24 hours, remove the paper completely. Lower the screen and let the gas out.

Sonali Chicken Food Chess: –

Many of us think that golden chickens need to be fed all the time like broiler chickens. But this is a misconception. It is important to keep in mind that the conversion rate of broiler chickens is not the same as that of golden chickens. The more broiler chickens you eat, the more weight you will gain, while golden chickens will not get much food.

This is why golden hens cannot be given Add libidum (as much as they eat / all day).

Now let’s talk about how to feed.

In the case of golden chickens, the average weight of 800 grams is calculated by calculating the golden feed as 40 bags per 1000 chickens. But “golden food” can sometimes take 2 bags or 3 bags more. Again, if it is very good, it may take less than 2 bags or 3 bags.

If the golden hen is fed broiler feed, the average weight of 600 g is calculated in a maximum of 34-35 bags of feed per 1000 chickens. In this case also the addition or subtraction of 2 to 3 bags can be taken as before.
