Cage structure of layer cage
Layer cages are the most commonly used equipment for raising chickens. Their structure is also of concern to farmers. So, layer cage manufacturers have summarized the structure of common laying hens for reference by farmers. The size of the laying hens’ cage is generally 42 cm in front height, 35 cm in height, 37 cm in cage depth, and the cage width which is cage length depends on the feeding and drinking position. Generally, the cage width is 42-45 cm, the slope of the cage bottom is about 1.0 degree, and the egg collecting trough outside the cage is 12-16 cm, the layer chicken cage consists of the front, back, top, bottom and side nets. Place the trough and sink in the front net. In order to facilitate the feeding and drinking of chickens, a vertical wire fence with a diameter of 3 mm can be welded, the distance between the grids is about 5-6 cm, and the lower edge is 4-5 cm away from the bottom net to leave a gap for the production of eggs. The next egg rolls out in time. In order to facilitate the catching of chickens, it is generally necessary to open the cage door on the front net, and the lead wire of the cage door is thicker
The rear net and the side net are mainly used for chicken battery cage spacing, and are generally used together with adjacent cages. In order not to let the chicken head stick out to fight with the chicken in the adjacent cage, the mesh wire should be arranged horizontally, with a spacing of 3 cm, and a few vertical wires for reinforcement and support. The top net is mainly to prevent the chickens from escaping, the wire spacing can be appropriately relaxed, and the cage door can be set on the top net
In the layer cage, the bottom net is where the chicken stands, both to bear the weight of the chicken, to make the chicken stand stable, and to facilitate the collection of eggs and defecation. Therefore, the requirements for the cage bottom are higher. The longitudinal lead wire at the bottom of the cage should have certain elasticity. It should not be too thick

2. The cage design includes designated nesting areas that provide comfortable and secure spaces for hens to lay eggs, making egg collection more efficient and stress-free for both farmers and hens
3. The layer chicken cage prioritizes the welfare of the hens, providing them with adequate space, ventilation, and easy access to food and water, which is essential for their well-being and productivity
4. The organized layout of the cages streamlines daily farming operations, making it easier for farmers to monitor and care for the hens
