Chicken Care: Housing and Ventilation Systems on Chicken Farm

The chickens are getting bigger now, and are putting out more body heat – so climate control becomes 

key at this stage in a chicken’s life. We know through extensive study of chickens that they are most 

comfortable living in a precise temperature range and modern chicken barns are equipped to keep 

temperatures right within this range, regardless of how hot or cold it is outside.  At week three, houses 

are kept about 75 degrees F (That is 24 degree C)and the temperature will gradually decrease to about 

64 degrees F (that is 18 degree C) by week seven, to keep them cooler as they grow bigger and emit 

more heat.

As chickens age and grow, their feed begins to change with them, like most animals. The feed chickens

are given at each stage of their life has been properly formulated for their needs by certified animal 

nutritionists to ensure that each bird gets the right nutrients, at the right time. 

We work with nutritionists and independent experts to develop healthy diets for our birds, tailored to 

each stage of the chicken’s life.
