CHICKENMALLA PLASTIC POULTRY NETTING IS THE BEST OPTION FOR FENCING
When it comes to your poultry netting materials you have to choose the best quality
CHICKENMALLA poultry netting consists of a rectangular high quality plastic mesh ideal for keeping not only your fowl, but also another kind of livestock such as sheep and goats.
Poultry netting, besides being used on a widespread range of commercial poultry farms, it is also essential for domestic bird breeding, that is why it is so important to choose the best quality materials for building your poultry yard, which can be temporary (moved daily or weekly like a chicken-tractor), semi-permanent (moved seasonally) or permanent (never moved as a chicken coop). It needs to be strong, but also light, in case it needs to be moved from a place to another.
CHICKENMALLA poultry netting is made of a very resistant plastic PP material, which makes it perfect for temperate or tropical climates especially in humid temperature, in which the poultry barn needs to be fresh and ventilated due to high temperatures; this is why wind direction has to be taken into consideration when building a poultry barnyard. A poultry yard’s area is also important to keep your fowl healthy and their habitat as clean as possible. The ground has to be permeable and with a slight slope to help the drainage of feces and urine (ammonia can seriously damage any sort of metal or hexagonal netting). A barnyard can vary, in terms of dimension, depending on the kind of birds it is built for; here it is an example for the most common ones:
- Chickens: An amount of twenty (20) chickens can be held in 7m2 As they fly at really low heights, the poultry’s walls do not have to be so tall (between 1.60 and 1.90m).
- Turkeys: Up to eight (8) turkeys can be kept in a single m2, in spite of being larger fowls. Walls should be 2m tall.
- Ducks: Unlike the other two, they have to move even more freely and need really open spaces to grow healthy. It is recommended a minimum of 1m2 area for four (4) ducks.
Wire mesh poultry netting tends to be more expensive and more difficult to install than plastic netting. Also, wire can run the risk of rusting, which would make it a source of possible infections, making your fowls sick for a simple cut or bacteria contamination in their habitat. This is why CHICKENMALLA poultry netting turns out to be as good as wire meshes, and even better; it is strong, resistant, and safe for your poultry’s health, it also helps to keep the barnyard with a suitable temperature.
Economic losses caused by poultry diseases oscillate between a 10 and a 20 percent of the production’s gross value. Salmonella, avipoxvirus, fowl cholera and avian influenza are only some of the viruses and bacteria that commonly infect poultry and, sometimes, even humans too. These diseases are commonly generated by the birds´ stress, lack of vaccines and poor nutrition, and that is why such simple aspects as appropriate ventilation, the quality of the materials used to build the barnyard, enough space and adequate food, rich in vitamins, play an important role when avoiding and preventing dangerous viruses which can be propagated with extreme ease. In most of the cases, only one bird can infect a whole yarn in a matter of hours, so it is very important to maintain optimal sanitary conditions and regularly check if any poultry shows diseases symptoms.
Poultry netting will withstand pressure washers, steam and the rough cleaning necessary around intensive feedlots for birds, or mayor live stock like cows and pigs. A good installation around the perimeters of feeding areas will prevent losses from outside birds scavenging on your expensive grains and avoid diseases to be brought in to your controlled environment from the wild.
