Whether it is a laying hen farmer who has built a hen house, a farmer who uses both backyard meat and eggs, or a dozen of older hens raised in a farmer’s family, if the hens do not produce eggs, For professional chicken farmers, it is a great loss. It is a very depressing thing for the farmer friends who are raising a few chickens. Dividing problems for chicken owners has always been our goal. Therefore, we will introduce to you why the hens do not produce eggs and how to solve them.
If the hen is just starting to lay eggs, it is easy to have a situation where the eggs are not right. In this case, the hens will lay eggs or not produce eggs. At this time, the chicken farmer should assist the hens. The specific method is: one person first grabs the hen's wings and thighs, and puts the chicken's head upwards, the chicken's belly is facing outwards, and then another person smears vegetable oil on the right hand's finger and inserts it into the cloaca of the chicken to set the egg position. Peel off the mucous membrane of the fallopian tubes covered by the egg surface, while slowly pressing the hen's belly with your left hand, pressing the stranded egg out. The chicken farmer is reminded that the finger you used to insert the cloaca is to polish the nails to avoid scratching the hens.
The above method is a method for dealing with difficult egg production in early hens' egg production. Generally, early treatment in accordance with the above methods can solve the problem of hens not producing eggs. However, if the hens do not lay eggs and often do bowel movements, it may be that the cloacas have become inflamed. At this time, chicken breeders should use oxytetracycline for anti-inflammation in the morning and evening. At the same time, the cloac of the hen can be washed with warm water-soluble iodine, then the hen's anus can be turned upwards, and the hen's fallopian tubes can be lightened. Touch it gently to help it return to its original position.
We also often hear feedback from some chicken farmers that the hens in their homes are in very good spirits, the chicken cocks are also bright red, and they lay their eggs in the coops every day, and they clatter when they leave the coops, but When you go to the coop to see, there is no egg inside. What is the situation here? In fact, this is a typical hen yolk peritonitis. What is more embarrassing about this chicken disease is that, in addition to the false production of eggs, there are usually no other external symptoms. Only after dissection can the peritoneal cavity of the hen be found with yellow effusion and degenerate egg yolk debris.
The cause of yolk peritonitis in hens is usually caused by fright. It is usually best not to chase and scare the hens during the laying process. Otherwise it is easy to cause mature eggs to fall into the abdominal cavity instead of fallopian tubes. Therefore, the chicken breeder must be “gentle” for the daily feeding of the hens, and it is also necessary to prevent animals, strangers, etc. from disturbing the frightened hens. Some chicken farmers use antibacterial drugs to treat yolk peritonitis in hens, but generally they do not have significant effects. Here is a recipe to tell you that chicken farmers can use grinding rhubarb vines to mix flour into pellets. Each hen eats 3 times a day, each time about 2 grams of raw medicine. Feeding this method for about a week generally allows the hens to return to normal egg production. After that, you should continue to feed for another week to consolidate the curative effect and prevent recurrence.
