Critical Factors Responsible For Small Eggs In A Layer Production PART 2
Dr Joseph Deji-Folutile
Egg production can be fun and highly rewarding when things keep going according to plans. But certain happenings can cause worries and frustrations. One of such is when your birds are laying tiny or small Eggs when they should be laying proper sized ones. You are spending money on feeding everyday. THIS MEANS YOU ARE LOSING MONEY EVERYDAY FEEDING UNPRODUCTIVE HENS.
In Part 2 of this important article, I will share three more critical factors responsible for small Eggs in a layer production farm.
1. Breed and Strain
The breed and strain of the birds you have can be the reason why you have small eggs. This may not be a problem if that is what you want when you were procuring the day old chicks. But if not, you should do due diligence to ask breeders proper questions before buying their DOC. This is very important and you should never be too busy to clarify this!
2. Early Age At Sex Maturity
This is very common especially with some ignorant and hasty farmers who always feed their pullets with broiler starter feeds in order to quicken their growth. But why the hurry when things can ultimately backfire? Please always remember that if you force a butterfly out of its cocoon in order to make it fly, you will truncate the destiny of the butterfly. Do things right. Feed the right feed and let your birds mature gracefully and lay good eggs for you ultimately.
3. Low Body Weight Of The Flock
If you are familiar with poultry and general livestock farming, you will note that IT IS ABOUT WEIGHT, NOT ABOUT AGE. When your birds have low body weight, no matter how old they are, the egg laying ability and capacity will be very low. And small Eggs can be one of the consequences.
Are your birds affected by the factors above? Get them corrected as soon as possible. Link up with your Nutritionist or expert. ALWAYS BE AGGRESSIVE IN SOLVING YOUR FARM PROBLEMS. Please know that the more you waste time in doing this, the more you are wasting money!
Watch out for the Part 3 of this very important article.
