CHICK REARING CAGE
CAGE The main components of our cage system are galvanized sheet and wire materials. The construction of our cages and the galvanized sheets and wires used in the cage compartments have ISO 9001 certificate and the surface coatings of the sheets and wires used have high standards. The cage system is designed in a way that the cage shall not get affected from the ground movements. There is one cage leg in every 60 cm and these legs are strengthened with the shoes placed under these legs. CAGE COMPARTMENTS The compartments have 120 x 67 cm dimensions. The side walls are made of galvanized wires. There are adjustable sliding covers on the chick floors and a chick carpet (plastic) in every chick floors compartment. FEEDING SYSTEM The feeding system with carriage is full-automatic and fully made of galvanized sheet. The feed is preserved in the silos having a conic bottom and 6 legs placed out of the cages. The feed is automatically distributed to the food carriages by means of spirals that go through the pipes of 125 mm starting under the silos and going towards the feed buckets. When the feed buckets are full, capacitive sensors automatically stop the system. The food buckets on both sides of the cages move in periods defined before on a line and distributes feed to the feeders. The feed carriages are moved by means of electrical engines of 0.75 HP and imported steel ropes on the rails over the cages. The feeders are specially designed for equally distributing the food to each floor of the bird cage and preventing the feed spillage out of the feeder. By using this system, waste of feed is minimized and the animals are offered fresh feeds. In addition, it is not possible for the chick to pick out the feed thus the chicks consume all of the feed distributed. WATERING SYSTEM The watering system consists of 4 nipples made of red plastic and stainless steel and a water cup (manual) at the chick floors for every compartment over two sets of PVC pipes that go over the cage from one end to the other between the cage compartments. At the chick floors there are movable nipples and fixed nipples at the layer chick floors. The height of the watering pipes with nipples is adjustable. There is a water reservoir at each floor and row. The water coming from the water supply is sent to the watering pipes under the optimum pressure by means of water reservoirs. MANURE BELT SYSTEM By means of imported manure belt movement engines with 1 HP reducer and 1 mm Polypropylene (PP) manure belts, which provide for perfect cleaning of the manure and it is placed in every cage line and under all floors and it extends along the cage, the manure is swept and cleaned. This strong and rigid structure operates without a problem even in the very long cages. By means of the cylinders and scrapers on every floor, the manure that is transferred to the horizontal disposal conveyor at the end of the cage is taken out of the cage from here to the vertical manure disposal conveyor. Manure transfer conveyors are composed of rubber bands of 6 mm with cord fabric operating on fixed pipes and construction made of galvanized sheet and back and front cylinders and an engine with reducer of 1.5 HP. There is a protective cover on the back of the cage that is used to properly transfer the manure to the conveyor and prevent the spillage of manure and dirt.
