The culture characteristics of Camellia chicken and the management of chicks, Chinese chickens and breeders
Camellia chicken is the wild ancestor of domestic chickens. It is also called red chicken and raw chicken. It inhabits tropical forests and secondary bamboo forests below 1000 meters above sea level. Feeding on the fruits, seeds, tender bamboos, leaves, and various wild petals of plants, you can also eat termites, termite eggs, worms, young moths, etc. The following small series will take you to understand the farming techniques of Camellia.
The culture characteristics of Camellia chicken are adaptable: Camellia chicken is not only suitable for feeding and breeding in tropical and subtropical areas, but also has good adaptability to alpine regions. It can be raised all over the country in all seasons of the year.
Breeding extensively: Camellia chicken is also very resistant to disease and has few diseases. For the first year of age, the original chicken can be scattered in the field at the edge of the field, allowing it to freely forage. For the external environment is not high, all kinds of food crops can be fed, and some green plants can be equipped.
Less feed intake: Camellia chickens are lighter in weight and have a lower feed intake. From the second month of life, the average daily intake is less than 30 grams.
The survival rate is high: the fertilization rate of Camellia chicken eggs is 89-95%, the hatching rate of fertilized eggs is 90%, the hatching machine is 21 days, and the survival rate of brooding is about 98%.
Chick chicken management, temperature: 1-3 days of brooding room temperature is 33-34 degrees, will slowly decline later, down 1-2 degrees per week, the uniform distribution of chicks is not the most suitable. When the temperature is too low, the chicken will pile up on the side of the heat source, causing the pressure to die. The temperature is too high, the chicken will be away from the heat source, and the mouth will breathe and sweat. Insulation lamps can be used for infrared heat sources, electric heating tubes, and the like.
