In recent years, with the improvement of living standards, people’s demand for chicken is also increasing. Hence, it boosts the chicken market. Chicken cages for feeding broilers are also becoming more and more popular. However, environmental problems in chicken cages will directly affect the growth status and production efficiency of chickens. Therefore, the chicken cage factory recommends cleaning and disinfection of the chicken cage. At the same time, to pay attention to prevent rust of chicken cages.
How to clean chicken cages?
It’s important to clean chicken cage. For most of the chicken cages, they are mainly designed with galvanized mesh, which is not easy to scratch or pockmark under normal conditions, but some impurities such as chicken feathers, feed and chicken manure will be attached during use. After a long time, it may scab and harden, so we need to take it out and clean it, do not wipe it with a stiff brush, soak it after washing, soak the dirt to soften it, and then rinse it with water. During the entire cleaning process, we do not recommend the use of cleaning agents, as the ingredients contained in the cleaning agents will corrode the chicken cage equipment to a certain extent.
How to disinfect chicken cages?
Besides cleaning chicken cages, disinfection of cages is also crucial. Chicken cages maintain high density, so spray or fumigation is used to sterilize them. If the disinfection is not clean, bacteria and viruses will easily remain, which is not conducive to future feeding and disease prevention. Pay attention to the rotation and amount of disinfectant when disinfecting. Before fumigation, close doors and windows, plug all gaps, and then calculate the dose of the drug based on the volume of the cages. After disinfection, open doors and windows for ventilation for 1-2 days to prepare for hatching.
The above is the relatively easy method of cleaning and disinfecting chicken cages. In fact, in order to keep the chicken cage equipment clean and tidy, it is necessary to carefully maintain it at ordinary times. In normal use, we try not to pull, push and close the door hard to reduce the collision of materials. When raising chickens at ordinary times, do not sprinkle the feed around the cages, and do not soak them in liquid. Use it according to the correct installation method, which is an effective way to prolong the service life of chicken cages.
