Nipple systems need to be pressurized either by installing a header tank or pump system. In houses with a slope in the floor, slope regulators should be installed per manufacturers recommendations to manage the water pressure in all parts of the house. Other options to achieve this include: split lines, pressure regulators or slope neutralizers. In houses with sloped floors, pressure regulators should be installed on the high side of the house. Birds should not have to travel more than 3 m 10 ft. Nipples should be placed at a maximum of 35 cm 14 in.

One Stop Solution and Guidance for Poultry Business and Management Sunday, 11 November Chick Placement Preparation before arrival of chicks From a profit point of view, prevention of disease has become the most cost-effective approach to poultry productivity.
Followed properly, the procedures enumerated below can prove successful, but one should first contact local concerned authorities to verify their permissibility.
Immediately after liquidating flocks, spray entire poultry house inside and outside with an approved insecticide in accordance with the manufacturer,s direction. This should be done prior to removal of litter and equipment. Allow sufficient time for insecticide to work. Remove all litter and dust. Then wash the house and equipment thoroughly with a pressurized water jet. Ensure that maximum possible organic matter and dirt is removed from inside and outside of the house.
Make sure that all wire nets, iron structures, concrete structure and roof are thoroughly cleaned. When the building has completely dried, use selected disinfectants like quaternary ammonium compound, idophores, liquid ammonia or other commercially available approved disinfectants.
One can also treat floors and parapet walls with caustic soda. Follow experts advice regarding dosages, procedures and compatibility.
Place all disinfected equipments in place. Clean all water pipelines, feed bins, etc. Close all openings and fumigate while building is still wet. Use mL of Formaldehyde and g of potassium permanganate for each cubic ft.
Keep the building closed for 24 hrs. Fumigation should only be done under strict supervision of authorized skilled person.
An effective rodent control program should always be in use at all times. Regular spray of suitable disinfectants and strict bio-security procedures are necessary. Biosecurity All In All Out: This system is strongly recommended for maximum exploitation of genetic potential of birds. If this is not possible minimize the number of age groups on the farm. Efficient management, sanitation and vaccination programs become more complicated and less effective in multiple age sites.
Restriction on men and material: Sales people, bird lifters, service men and visitors should not be allowed to enter the bio-secured area. Foot Baths: Foot baths should be provided at the entry of each shed.
Water in foot baths should contain an approved disinfectant in its recommended dilution. The solution should be changed periodically. Foot wears: Preferably disinfected rubber slippers should be used before entering the farm. Water Management A chicken comprises of 60 — 70 percent of water and is present in all cells of the body. First 0- 14 Days To insure that chicks get off to a good start, it is important to have adequate clean and fresh water available. This water should be available in chick waterers mini-drinkers etc.
This should be enough until market age. When determining drinker placements ensure that birds need do not have to travel over 8 ft. Drinkers should be washed daily with a good sanitizer with recommended dose. Do not use sanitizer on the day of vaccinations. Fresh clean water is essential for good performance.
