The aim of the study was to compere the effects of using air energy heat pump, flue heating and water heating as brood heating system on brood production of yellow-feathered broilers. In the experiment, three heating methods were used to heat chicks, and the parameters such as heating time, temperature uniformity, concentration of poisonous and harmful gases in the house, chick weight gain, mortality rate and production benefit were compered and analyzed. The results showed as follows: 1. There was no significant difference in NH3 and H2S concentration among the three groups (P > 0.05). The CO2 concentration in the flue group was significantly higher than that in the other two groups (P < 0.01), and there was no significant difference in CO2 concentration between the other two groups (P >0.05). 2. The body weight of chickens in the flue group at 30 days of age was the lowest, which was significantly different from that in the other two groups (P < 0.01); The air energy heat pump group had significant difference with coal fired boiler group (P < 0.05), the uniformity and survival rate of flue group were the lowest, and the air energy heat pump group had the best; 3. The temperature rise of honeycomb flue was the slowest, the temperature distribution uniformity was the worst, and the cost was the highest; The heating rate of coal-fired boiler was faster than that of flue, and the temperature distribution uniformity was better, and the cost was lower. The heating rate of air energy heat pump was the fastest, and the temperature distribution uniformity was better, and the operating cost was the lowest. 4. The air energy heat pump group has higher investment in the early stage, better use effect, better production performance of brood, long service life and lower brood cost.
