III. Background of the Study

Poultry also includes other birds that are killed for their meat, such as the young of

pigeons (known as squabs) but does not include similar wild birds hunted for sport or

food and known as game. The word "poultry" comes from the French/Norman word

poule, itself derived from the Latin word pullus, which means small animal.

The domestication of poultry took place several thousand years ago. This may have

originally been as a result of people hatching and rearing young birds from eggs collected

from the wild, but later involved keeping the birds permanently in captivity.

Domesticated chickens may have been used for cockfighting at first and quail kept for

their songs, but soon it was realized how useful it was having a captive-bred source of

food.
Selective breeding for fast growth, egg-laying ability, conformation, plumage and docility

took place over the centuries, and modern breeds often look very different from their wild

ancestors. Although some birds are still kept in small flocks in extensive systems, most

birds available in the market today are reared in intensive commercial enterprises.

Together with pig meat, poultry is one of the two most widely eaten types of meat

globally, with over 70% of the meat supply in 2012 between them;[1] poultry provides

nutritionally beneficial food containing high-quality protein accompanied by a low

proportion of fat. All poultry meat should be properly handled and sufficiently cooked in

order to reduce the risk of food poisoning.

Poultry farming is the process of raising domesticated birds such as chicken, ducks,

and geese for the purpose of farming meat or eggs for food. Poultry mostly chickens- are

farmed in great numbers. Farmers raise more than five thousand (5000) chickens annually

as a source of food, both for their meat and for the eggs. Chickens raised for eggs are

usually called layers while chicken raised for meat are often called broilers. Feeding

Poultry was published in 1955 by G.F. Heuser, who had spent the last forty years

researching poultry nutrition, and his book is a fascinating peek into the era during which

commercial feeds were being developed (but while poultry keepers still remembered the

old ways). Heuser began his book by looking at chicken care from a hundred years prior.

In the middle of the nineteenth century, chickens were being kept in small flocks on

diversified farms, so they mostly fed themselves, with a bit of corn or other grain tossed

in once or twice a day. Some farmers would let the hens into the garden for an hour or so

of monitored bug control, and they generally had free rein of the barnyard, where the
chickens happily pecked apart manure from horses and cows. A slightly later nineteenth

century text mentioned feeding chopped and scalded clover hay. Heuser reminds us that

this laissez-faire method of chicken-keeping worked at the time, but that the hens didn’t

lay terribly well, concentrating most of their efforts on the spring months.

IV. Statement of a Problem

Common problems in poultry farm is that, some chickens are having hard time when

they are being feed. Chickens are being injured while eating due to competitions inside

the cage, the smaller and weaker ones are being push by those strong chicken, because of

that some are dying not due to illness but due to malnutrition and injury because of

competition in the cage when they are being feed.

V. Objectives

The brief of this paper aim to develop an AUTOMATED CHICKEN FEEDER that

would help our farmers and businessmen with less effort and time that bring them a good

quality time for improvement of their business. Here are the specific objectives of the

study:
I. Automated feeding machine

II. Reduce chicken injuries

III. Less mortality rate during the 1st month

IV. Nutrient distribution efficiency

V. High quality of chicken

VI. Review of Related Literature

This research is aimed to design and fabrication of an AUTOMATED CHICKEN

FEEDER. It is very important to carefully select the materials and method. This is to

ensure that the final product meets its specification and work as intended. In the selection

of suitable materials that will satisfy this design and product requirements, it is necessary

to look at many aspects so that the components and assembly are fabricated within the

resources available.

Different manufacturing processes automated feeding machine. The machine consist

of many components which must be put together approximately that their interaction with

one another would produce the desired output. Put some processes include cutting,

programming, welding, forming, and pipping

Poultry farming is the process of raising domesticated birds such as chicken, ducks,

and turkeys for the production of meat or eggs and geese for the purpose of farming meat

or eggs for food. Poultry mostly chicken are farmed in great numbers. Farmers raise more

than five thousand (5000) chickens annually as a source of food, both for their meat and

for the eggs. Chickens raised for eggs are usually called layers while chickens raised for
meat are often called broilers.

“Poultry” can be defined as a domestic fowls, including chickens, turkeys, geese and

ducks, raised for production of meat or eggs and the word is also used for the flesh of

these birds used as food.
