One of our new users, by the name Jeremy, reached out and asked us to guide him on how to use SmartBird Poultry management software on his farm.
We decided to make a video, to take him through setting up his account, managing settings on SmartBird, entering daily production records, and recording income and expenses
Jeremy’s Farm has 250 birds of the Kuroiler Breed at different ages. He also has 100 Broilers.
The first task is to see how to group the birds on Jeremy’s Farm into flocks. A flock is a group of birds of the same breed or strain, the same age, with the same feeding and care requirements.
It is recommended to house different flocks in different housing or rooms so as to give them specific attention and also to protect younger birds from the older birds.
We do not know the details of Jeremy’s 250 Kuroiler birds, as pertaining to age and numbers but we created the following flocks.
|Broilers||100||Coop 4||1 Day|
|Kuroilers||50||Coop 1||1 Month|
|Kuroiler||100||Coop 2||3 Months Old|
|Kuroiler||100||Coop 3||4 Months Old|
SmartBird Account Setup

Flock Management and Production Records

- Vaccine and Medication Records
- Mortality Records
- Feed Records
- Weight Records
- Treatment Records
- Egg Collection Records (Not Included in Jeremy’s Farm as he does not have layers)
We are working on the third video to cover income, expenses, and reports.
