Pushtiraj Broiler Feed Literature

Pushtiraj Feed is made from the best quality raw materials at the best price.

Bangladesh is a rural country with a large population. The poultry sector has been playing a vital role in meeting the nutritional needs, earning foreign exchange and eliminating unemployment of this country. As a result, this sector is expanding rapidly. The contribution of the farmers is the most in achieving this success. Apart from meeting the demand for meat, the relentless efforts of the farmers in the development of our country certainly deserve praise. But the lack of good quality feed for broiler chicken has been hampering the progress of the farmers. Lack of quality feed increases the production cost of chickens. Farmers are gradually losing interest in chicken production as the market price of chicken is lower than the cost of production. To solve this problem, “Arman Feeds and Fisheries Ltd.” has brought to the market the best-quality and nutritious feed which is Pushtiraj Broiler Feed. These feeds are committed to ensuring high quality, minimum feed conversion rate (FCR), and free of harmful ingredients for humans and chickens.

Before Building a Chicken Coop, the Following Things Should be Noted:

      • The first requirement for a typical poultry farm is a farmhouse or poultry shed. Usually, they are one shed or two sheds. A shed will have a height of 6 feet on one side and 6 feet on the other. If there are two sheds, the height on both sides will be 9 feet. However, the height in the middle will be 17-18 feet.

      • The chicken coop should be located as far away from the locality as possible, in a place with good communication, high altitude (where water is not frozen), and electricity.

      • If the house is east-west, it is better to have enough light and ventilation.

      • The house should be kept safe from domestic poultry and wild animals.

Sample of an Ideal House:

Preparing the House and What to Do before Raising Chicks (for Every 500 Chicks):

      • The house should be thoroughly sprayed with disinfectant before raising the chicks. If necessary, fumigation and baking powder should be used.

      • After cleaning, a chick guard should be placed on the floor of the house and it should be spread with wood powder or rice husk at a height of 2 inches in summer and 3-4 inches in winter.

      • Gas brooders or hovers should be hung 2 feet above the middle of the chick guard. Hover has to be connected with 2 bulbs of 100 watts and one bulb of 60 watts in summer and 2 bulbs of 200 watts and 2 bulbs of 100 watts in winter.

      • Newspapers should be spread on rice husk or wood powder and a chick drinker 2.5 feet long for every 50 chicks should be given on the paper. Drinkers should be filled with water before raising the chicks.


Raising chickens with artificial heat during chickhood is called brooding. The average body temperature of a chicks is 103 degrees Fahrenheit and that of an adult chicken is 106 degrees Fahrenheit.

Brooding placement formula:


In other words, 314 chicks weighing 36 grams can be brooded in a girder of 5 feet radius.

Necessary Items for Brooding:

Gas brooders: Gas brooders are run on natural or LP gas. A gas brooder can brood 1000-2000 chicks.

Electric Brooder: This brooder is made by hanging an electric bulb with a hover.

Chick Guard: Chick guards are used to keeping chicks near feed, water and for proper temperature control. It is usually made of hardboard or plain sheet. For 500 chicks, one chick guard with a height of 1.5 feet and a length of 30-35 feet is used. As the chicks grows older, the circumference of the chick guard also increases.


Brooder Room Temperature:
















Just the idea is being given through the mentioned temperature. However, whether the brooder’s temperature is right or not should be understood by looking at the chicks’ behavior.

Temperature Control by Looking at the Chicks’ Behavior:

1. When the temperature is low, the chicks will be huddled under the brooder and will chirp.
2. When the temperature is high, chicks will be clinging to the body of the chick guard, breathing heavily, and drooping their heads and wings.
3. If the temperature is right the chicks will be scattered, will feel restless, will make soft noises and will normally take feed and water.

Amount of Space for Broiler Chickens:

In summer and winter, have to give a clean place.

Feed Management:

About 60-70 percent of the total cost of broiler production is spent on feed. So feed management is an important issue on the farm. The chicks should be given glucose water for up to 3 hours after lifting. After that, it should be kept inside the chick guard on paper for 3-4 days. Chicken needs a balanced diet for proper weight and physical growth. The Pushtiraj broiler feed is manufactured in a modern and automated machine that will give the assurance of the correct weight.

Day 1: Feed must be given on a paper or tray feeder.

Day 2-12: A 30-inches long tin or plastic container should be given for every 50 chickens.

Day 13- Up to Sale: A feeding pot for 25-30 chickens.

The container should not be filled with feed at any time as it can lead to wastage of feed and loss of litter. Half of the feed should be given repeatedly in each container.

Ensuring quality chicks, ideal farm management, proper feed, and water management with feeding Pushtiraj broiler feed make a feed conversion rate (FCR) of 1.45-1.55 in 29-30 days and it is possible to market the chickens in less time. As a result, the farm brothers get benefited more financially.

From 14th Day to Sale: For every 45-50 chickens, 2 water containers with a capacity of 8 liters should be provided.

Another name for water is life. In the case of chickens, the need for pure water is immense. Adequate cold water supply should be ensured in hot weather.

Litter Management:

The floor should be thoroughly cleaned and dried before laying litter (rice husk or wood powder). Rice husk or wood powder should be well dried in the sun before use. If necessary, spray with formalin. The litter should be kept dry and odor-free for quick and normal growth of the chicken. Litter should be scraped at least once a day. Dispose of frozen or foul-smelling litter. When changing the litter, 10% -15% of the old should be mixed with the new litter.

Lighting and Air Management:

Ammonia gas is a major barrier to the normal growth of chickens. Adequate air is required to emit this gas. Adequate cold air should be provided during hot weather. If necessary, you have to arrange a fan inside.

Poultry Farm Biosecurity and Some Tips:

Bird flu is the biggest threat in the poultry sector. Bird flu kills millions of chickens in the country every year. As a result, many farmers become destitute. The only way to protect farms from this bird flu is through proper implementation of biosecurity. So the importance of biosecurity for getting disease-free and achieving goals is immense. In order to ensure biosecurity in modern poultry farms, special attention has to be paid to the fact that the workers working on the farm must be sterilized to enter the farm. Disinfection containers should be placed at the entrance of the farm/shed so that the intruder can enter the farm after being purified by the disinfectant. Dead chickens should be burnt or buried in holes. All the dirt of the farm has to be dumped at the specified distance against the wind flow. After selling the chickens, all the houses should be sprayed with formalin at the rate of 5-10% and filled in litter and other garbage bags, and taken away from the farm and burnt. The floor of the house should be cleaned with disinfectant (such as Vircon / GPC-6 / Timsen / TS-4 etc.). The floor, pillars (up to 3 feet), walls, and around the house (up to 3 feet) should be coated with the following solution.

For 500 square feet of space –
A. Lime – 1000 grams
B. Bleaching – 250 grams
C. Formalin – 250 grams
D. Kerosene – 200 grams
E. Tute-250 grams
F. Water – 5 liters.

Keep the husk inside the house and mix formalin and water (9 liters of water and 1 liter of formalin) then spray in the husk and cover it with polythene. Visitors should be discouraged from visiting. The farm should be kept free from rats, birds, etc. It is possible to ensure the biosecurity of the farm by setting up the farm in open space and taking special measures to disinfect the farmyard routinely.

Feed Storage Considerations:

      • Store feed in a dry, cool shaded place, where ventilated.

      • When storing feed, each sack should be lined up and spaced between each row.

      • Store the feed bag on a wooden / bamboo scaffold 4 inches high.

      • Feed stocks must follow the FIFO (first in, first out) rule.

      • Protect feed from rat infestation and do not store feed with pesticides and other toxins.

      • Use Pushtiraj broiler feed within 60 days of production to maintain broiler growth.

Finally, to get good results on broiler farms, you need to ensure good quality broiler breeds, quality feed as well as good farm management.
