Visit To An Established Poultry Farm
Have you visited a poultry farm before? If you have, can you share your experience with a friend?
In today’s class, we will walk you through what a poultry farm looks like and what can be found there.
A poultry farm is where domesticated birds are raised. Poultry include chickens, turkey, ducks, and geese. These animals are raised for their meat and eggs. Chickens are the most common bird raised for both meat and eggs. Chickens that are raised for their meat are called broilers. Chickens that are raised for their eggs are called laying hens or layers. Some special breeds of poultry are raised for shows and competitions.
The following are poultry farm activities:
- preparing the chicken house for the arrival of the chicks
- feeding the chickens
- monitoring the conditions inside the chicken houses, including temperature, humidity, and air quality
- monitoring the feed and water lines to make sure they are providing the chicks with plenty of fresh water and chicken feed
- monitoring the health of the chickens
- cleaning the chicken houses or coops
- collecting eggs (for laying hens)
- loading chickens onto trucks for moving to chicken plants (for meat chickens)
In summary, poultry farming is the form of animal husbandry which raises domesticated birds such as chickens, ducks, turkeys and geese to produce meat or eggs for food. Poultry – mostly chickens – are farmed in great numbers. Chickens raised for eggs are known as layers, while chickens raised for meat are called broilers.
