Ventilation Management In Poultry.

In addition to the correct temperature humidity, proper ventilation needs to be considered. Ventilation distributes heat throughout the house and maintains good air quality in the brooding area.

As chicks are more susceptible to air quality issues than are older birds, ammonia levels that produce a limited effect on a 7-week-old flock can reduce body weight gains of 7-day-old chicks by 20%. Ammonia levels should be kept below 10 ppm at all times.
