Poultry House Ventilation

Poultry house ventilation... is a process where a series of exhaust fans and tunnel circulation fans work in concert to move air through the chicken coop to generate a uniform flow of air at all points. With a good poultry house ventilation plan, ammonia, dust and carbon dioxide rarely present as a problem. Ventilation in a poultry farm house is one of the most important aspects of keeping chickens healthy, in order to reduce breathing problems in the birds and achieve higher productivity and operational profits.

Benefits of proper poultry farm house ventilation

One of the main benefits of proper poultry farm ventilation is that it helps minimize the chance of disease-causing organisms from lingering in the air, while also providing a change from the normal dusty air that is typically caused by normal chicken movement. This allows the chickens on the farm to experience fresher, oxygen-rich air that helps promote growth.

Another benefit to engineering the air flow in your poultry farm is its minimization of disease-causing environmental factors such as excessive humidity, heat, and ammonia generation.  By providing proper ventilation, you can ensure those levels are kept to their absolute minimum, thereby increasing the health of your chickens, and delivering a higher yield at harvest time.

 3 Keys for Poultry Farm House Ventilation Success

Given our experience at Minxin with poultry farm house ventilation, we recommend a few key things to ensure you have the cleanest possible air in your poultry farm coop.

  1. We recommend that the poultry farm coops be ventilated on an automatic schedule that runs at any time of day and night with help of thermostat system.
  2. We recommend separate ventilation schedules that operate in the summer and winter, as the mitigation of excessive heat buildup is important in the summer, and reducing humidity is important in the winter.
  3. In most breeds, the optimal temperature range for chickens is between 65° and 75°F (18°C and 24°C), while heat stress and heat-related illness tends to present in temperatures around 90°F (32°C) and above.

While chickens are at their happiest in the temperature range mentioned previously, they are actually more cold-hardy than heat-tolerant. Because of this, in a properly prepared poultry farm, most breeds can tolerate temperatures that dip below freezing. The key here is to ensure fresh water is always made available and in liquid state and ensure your poultry farm ventilation plan makes humidity reduction its top concern. In the winter, it is paramount that chicken coops are kept dry with poultry ventilation exhaust fans, as excessive build up of moisture can lead to freezes.

How to Design Poultry Farm Ventilation and Poultry Farm Cooling?

We recommend different systems for poultry farm house climate control in different seasons:

  1. Mechanical ventilation systems in winter. The mechanical ventilation system in winter includes an poultry farm exhaust fan ventilation system, combined with poultry circulation fans to accelerate the air exchange.
  2. Longitudinal ventilation and evaporative cooling systems in summer. With evaporative cooling pad installed on one side of poultry farm wall, and poultry cooling fans installed on the opposite side of the poultry farm wall. Or install the water cooling pad on two opposite sides of the poultry farm walls, and the cooling fans on the other side, the application of longitudinally ventilated houses can increase the wind speed, the cooling pad can help with the climate control of the poultry farm, thereby reducing the heat stress suffered in summer.
