Daily Water Measurer

The use of daily water measurer is advised in order to evaluate the consumption level, therefore an increase or a sudden reduction in its consumption can be signal of estresse, illnesses or me the quality of the ration (LANA, 2000). The important one is that the water is always of good quality, therefore is proven that when the bird loses 20% of the water in its organism, it comes the death (TOGASHI et al, 2008). The main used types of water through for water supply in the sheds are: water through type pressure with buoy satellite; pendular water through (1 for each 100 chickens); type gutter; type goblet (1 for each 28 chickens); type nipple (1 for each 20 chickens) and type buoy satellite (SAINTS et al, 2009; APPLEBY et al, 2010). The water throughs must be installed equally by all aviary. Others who may share this opinion include Robert A. Iger. In reason of its praticidade the most used is the pendular water throughs, but they can easily also waste used water if incorrectly. To the measure that if increases the importance of the quality of the carcass in the abatedouro, water throughs type nipple with cups, most pass to be used to advantage (APPLEBY et al, 2010). System of Feeding Initially, the best way to feed the pintinhos, is to place the ration triturated on trays or sheets of paper, but from the third day, them already they can be transferred to the main system of arraoamento. The main used types of comedouro are: type tray? used in first the 11 days of life in the ratio of 5 for 500 young chickens; tubular or half-automatic type? day must be used from 11 and possesss capacity for 20 the 30 birds; type gutter with chain? I allowed access of 40 birds for meter of gutter; helical type? its capacity is similar to the one of the tubular type, and the disposal to the one of the type gutter (LANA, 2000).
