Proper ventilation is key to maintaining good air quality
CO2 Levels Tip
With increased CO² levels (> 3000 ppm), bird behavior and activity will be reduced. If not corrected, this reduced activity level can negatively impact bird growth and feed consumption. Always evaluate flock behavior and make adjustments to the ventilation system to keep the birds comfortable.
Air quality guidelines
Oxygen % > 19.6%
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) < 0.3% / 3000 ppm
Carbon Monoxide < 10 ppm
Ammonia < 10 ppm
Inspirable Dust < 3.4 mg/m³ (.0001 oz/35.3 ft³)
Relative Humidity < 70%
Air exchange with minimal air movement at chick level <0.30 m/s
Circulation fans not only help with air mixing within the house, but are important tools to help maintain dry litter throughout the house. Dry litter is important for maintaining good footpad health, providing broilers with a comfortable environment and promoting positive bird behavior.
