The conditions under which chickens are housed - including heating, ventilation, air quality, water availability and feed - have a direct impact on the profitability of a poultry farming business. Sonét Roux, technical advisor at Country Bird Holdings, says that managing broiler chickens can be challenging for producers, especially in winter, as they have to find a balance between heating the air inside the house and ventilating for desirable air quality. However, it is not only in winter that ventilation and heating are important. Farmers have to monitor them throughout the year to ensure that the birds are always comfortable.
