The complete essentials of modern rearing density should include three aspects, one is how many chickens to raise per square meter, the second is how many feeders to occupy per hundred, and the third is the drinking position of each chicken. Three aspects are indispensable.
Broilers should be raised at a high density, but the density should be determined according to specific conditions. Generally speaking, the density of online flat raising can be increased accordingly, while low density of litter flat is better. The older the feeding day, the lower the density. In addition, the feeding density is closely related to the season, temperature, and ventilation conditions, as shown in Table 4.

Remarks: 3-5 pieces/m2 can be added in winter.
