Variable speed fans can have a profound impact on this type of problem. I have found that by reducing the air volume by slowing fan speed rather than intermittent cycling of exhaust fans the temperatures are much more stable and don't have the cooling effect that typically occur when fans are running at full speed intermittently. Variable fans also prevent the heating and cooling cycles which ha ...

The objective is to minimize stress on the chick so that the majority of the energy is directed towards growth and develo ...
