Problem Description: China is one of the major countries in the world of laying hens. However, compared with the United States and the European Union, the production efficiency of laying hens in China still lags far behind. Objectives: To guide the farmers to improve the effiency of laying hens breeding, we use the survey data to analysis the effiency and give advice. Methodology: This paper uses field survey data from five provinces to measure the technical efficiency of laying hens through DEA model. Key Findings: The results show that the average technical efficiency of survey households is 95.411%. Through the analysis, we found that layer chicken production technology in Hebei province is the highest, Liaoning province layer chicken production efficiency is the lowest. Implications: In the overall layout of laying hens breeding, the laying hens industry development should vigorously promote the rationalization of regional layout, give full play to regional advantages, and promote the development of laying hens industry.
