Quad Deck - Versatile Pullet Cage
From Traditional System
Almost unchanged for 30 years – the economic Farmer Automatic rearing cage. This battery, equipped with all unique Farmer Automatic features, is an animal-friendly and economical rearing system for layer pullets.
Plastic coated, rectangular wire mesh on cage floors allows safe rearing of pullets without the need for additional floor matting in the first day of growing cycle. Feed access slots are adjustable to fit the size of pullets from day one, yet they are unable to slip into the feed trough. If pullets are not crowded and are provided adequate cage area, they will form small groups which results in a more uniform bird size.
Automatic feeding system
The Farmer Automatic V-Link chain feeding system has been used in farms around the world for over 30 years. Our design places the chain in a trough outside the cage, keeping it free from debris and allowing easy access for inspection and management. The long-lasting, wear-resistant chain distributes the feed evenly and, unlike some spiral feeding mechanisms, there are no injuries or mortalities.
Automatic drinking system
Farmer Automatic offers two versions of automatic nipple drinking in its Quad-Deck cage. In the standard version, the nipple pipes can be set to three different heights depending on the age of the pullets. The alternative version has a stepless height adjustment of the nipple pipe. Both types provide two nipple drinkers with drip cups per cage.
