With the development of network technology, the Internet of Things has spread to every corner of our lives, and the word "smart" is often mentioned. Recently, whether large-scale chicken farms need temperature and humidity data recorders has become a hot topic. To answer this question, we must first understand the impact of temperature and humidity on chicken farms.

Let's talk about the effect of temperature on chicken farms
Temperature is the most critical factor because it directly affects chicken survival. If the temperature is too low, the chicken is easy to catch cold and cause diarrhea or respiratory diseases. In addition, when the temperature is too low, the chickens are likely to get together in order to keep warm, affecting feeding and activities, resulting in disability and, in severe cases, a large number of deaths. If the indoor temperature is too high, occasionally opening the doors and windows to ventilate and ventilate, it is also easy to catch a cold. Therefore, temperature is very important for chicken farms.
Then come to know what is the most suitable humidity for chickens?
At a suitable temperature, the relative humidity of 60% to 65% is the best, and it is generally believed that 40% to 72% is the suitable humidity for chickens. The upper limit temperature of laying hens decreases with the increase of humidity. The production performance is the same under the conditions of temperature of 28°C and relative humidity of 75%, temperature of 31°C and relative humidity of 50% and temperature of 33°C and relative humidity of 30%. That is, the relative humidity drops from 75% to 30%, which is a 5°C drop relative to the temperature. Relative humidity above 85% in winter has adverse effects on egg production.
In actual production, most chicken farms have installed temperature and humidity data logger, but they all require special personnel to monitor, the labor cost is high, and the temperature changes rapidly, and there are many cases where the response is not timely and causes losses. Therefore, the installation of temperature and humidity data logger can remotely view temperature and humidity data, which is very necessary for large-scale chicken farms.
