These days, anyone who has a big enough backyard in their property can raise free-range chickens with the use of top quality poultry fencing and shade nets from Philippine Ranging Nets. From the makers of world-class range nets that keep your chickens safe from harmful toxins, disease-carrying insects, and other wild animals while allowing them to roam freely to be a healthier brood, here’s everything you need to know about shade nets for some efficient free-range husbandry.
The importance of shade nets
Similar to how crop farmers grow their fruits and vegetables with the use of shade nets, free-range chickens also need protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. Reduced temperatures are essential in growing chickens to avoid them from being sick and dehydrated. These light, flexible, and stress-resistant nets also serve as protection from other farms, domestic, or wild animals and can stand time so that you save more money!
According to one study in Brazil about poultry science, what these shade nets give chickens are better breathing conditions, better weight in both grower and finisher stages. This means that by placing a shade net covering 60% of a free-range area can improve the chickens’ environment conditions that can give them better comfort, increase their energy, and of course, the production of eggs.
These shade nets are so easy to install and Philippine Ranging Nets can accommodate any area from the standard minimum of six to eight square meters of the shaded area to larger ones.
Preventing chicken heat stress with shade nets
Did you know that chickens can also suffer from heat stress or even a stroke?
The most common signs you’ll know that your chickens are suffering from heat include labored breathing, pale combs or wattles, diarrhea, frequent exhaustion, convulsions, and when they lift their wings frequently away from their bodies. That is why shade nets are essential when you are raising free-range chickens.
When you set up a shade net area, make sure that misters and wading pools are also available to let your broiler chickens (which are the most affected by dehydration) beat the heat. Always remember that a chicken’s normal body temperature should be 40 to 41 degrees Celsius and if a hot day reaches 30 degrees, then they might be in danger of having a stroke.
