ONE DAY BEFORE ARRIVAL OF CHICKS
1.Put back the curtains.
2.Disinfect equipment like brooders, waterers and feeders by dipping them in disinfect solution or spraying the surface with disinfectant. Formalin, Asiphor,
Disinfect-S can be used for this purpose.
3.Spread husk on the ground
4.Check water and electrical connections.
5.Depending on the number of chicks to arrive, complete the brooding arrangements. Make a round shaped guard and hang the brooder in the center. If electric bulb brooding is used, make a round of 5ft diameter for 250 to 300 chicks. If gas brooders are used, up to 2500 chicks can be brooded in one group. Follow the manufacturer’s specification. Arrange to hang the brooders, so that, they can be raised during the daytime.
6.Spray 2% Formalin (200ml in 10ltrs of water.) all over the interiors of the shed, over the equipment and the surroundings.
7.If the house is small, consider fumigation. Measure width / breadth /average height in feet to arrive at the total cubic feet. Use 40 ml Formalin for 100cft. Place it in a bigger container(the quantity should be half full) Take Potassium
Permanganate 50% of the quantity of Formalin. See that all persons are out. Pour Potassium Permanganate crystals in to the Farmalin liquid and come out quickly as the fumes raise.(The fumes burn the eyes)25/40/10 ft=1000 cft for this 4000ml Formalin and 2000gms Potassium Permanganate is required. Keep all curtains closed.
8. Open the curtains on the sides on the sides one hour before the arrival of chicks to allow some fresh air.
9. Spread news paper on the litter carefully after making the litter leveled.
10. Add medicines in water tank as required. We use one antibiotic like Amoxyl, Tetracycline or Furasol @ one gm per liter of water. B-complex liquid @ 30 ml/100 chicks and AD3EC @ 5ml/100 chicks.
11. Keep small drinkers inside the guards. One for 80 chicks. Keep them at least 2 inches above ground level on a stand to prevent chicks gettingin .
12. Sprinkle maize powder or feed on the paper slightly.
WHEN THE CHICKS ARRIVEL
1. If the weather is too cool, request the hatchery to deliver the chicks in the day time. The chicks will have time to settle down. Find out the time of hatch. If the chicks are delivered on the same night and if the weather is bad, the chicks can live without feed or water for 48 hours. Keeping them in the boxes is better than leaving them in chilled weather. Delay leads to dehydration. The chicks should reach the house in minimum possible time.
2. Open the boxes and ensure that all chicks are alive and active. The chicks should try to jump out of the boxes, when the lids are taken out. Check the number against the delivery note. Take out the dead and dull chicks.
3. Take medicated water in a plate. Dip the beak of each chick in the medicated water before releasing. Count while releasing. If you find some chicks too small or weak while handling, destroy them or place them in a separate brooder. Few chicks should be shown to nipples. Others copy them.
4. Put the heating system on before the chicks are released. When gas brooders are used, use an extra bulb for light above the brooder so that all the chicks can see the surroundings clearly. If the temperature is high, the chicks move away from the heat source, If the temperature is low, they crowed in the center. Adjust the height of the brooder or the source of heat accordingly.
