Design of poultry houses

  1. 1. Design of Different Poultry Houses for Large and Medium Poultry Farms Presented by :Presented by : Dr .M.G.Nikam (RVD/12-16)Dr .M.G.Nikam (RVD/12-16) PhD StudentPhD Student Department of Poultry ScienceDepartment of Poultry Science C.V.Sc R’nagarC.V.Sc R’nagar HyderabadHyderabad
  2. 2. Type of poultry houses          I.    Open side house                  II. Controlled Environment houses        (Conventional Broiler     (non-conventional-closed)       house-Deep litter raring   Construction details :  Foundation Floor Walls and partition Ventilators Roof Doors Width Length
  3. 3. Location, lay out and design of Poultry houses Purpose of Housing •To protect inclement weather, direct sun rays and rain. •To minimize effect of dampness. •To provide safety from their predators. •To apply scientific management practices •To provide suitable, atmosphere for expression of full genetic potential.
  4. 4. Basis Principles to be Observed for layout : Layout should not allow visitors (for office works) and outside vehicles to come in contact with birds. From this, administrative block and feed mill unit should be kept away from sheds on farm. The younger birds should be kept away from disturbances due to movements of outsiders. For which brooder and grower houses are preferably. Located at far end of site, away from administrative block and mill unit.
  5. 5.  Cont.. The houses of should be necessarily placed on the upwind flow side to avoid cross-infection from adults to youngers through air. In our country for major part of year, west is the upwind flow side. Feed mill is generally attached to medium and large size poultry farms and preferably placed near gate.
  6. 6. Ventilation Free flowing air in the house Reduce the temperature in house in summer Ventilation keeps the atmosphere healthy in house Ridge ventilators for houses Humidity o 38 – 42 per cent humidity better performance , o Conducive for multiplication of pathogenic organism o Dusty and dry litter Light Importance of light Continuous light Intermittent light
