Nowadays, farmers will choose to use automated poultry farming equipment to breed broilers. The growth cycle of broilers is short, and the general equipment can be used for more than ten years. So broiler breeding equipment can breed many batches of broilers. In order to ensure the sanitation of equipment and chicken coops, farmers need to disinfect chicken coops and equipment regularly. In this way, after the next batch of broiler chickens enter the cage, they can have a better living space, which is more conducive to the growth of broiler chickens. I will tell the farmers the disinfection points of broiler farming equipment and chicken battery cages.
The correct disinfection of the chicken house should be completely cleaned and disinfected before the introduction of new chickens. Each chicken house should be idle for at least 2 weeks after disinfection and fumigation.
Clean up the chicken house. After eliminating all the chickens in the coop, remove the feces and debris scattered inside and outside the chicken house. Remove the remaining feed, and discard the unused feed. The trough and the material box should be cleaned completely, and the residual feed attached to the bottom and four walls of the material box must be removed to avoid becoming a source of infection. Movable equipment should be removed from the chicken house and cleaned, disinfected and exposed to sunlight. Moving unsterilized equipment back to the chicken house will destroy the disinfection effect of the chicken house and cause re-contamination.
Initially clean the chicken house, wash the ceiling, walls and windows with water to remove the attached dust. The splashed sewage and dirt Z will be transferred to a place far away from the chicken house together with all litter on the ground, litter scattered on the outside of the chicken house, garbage and weeds in the feed room and outside the chicken house to accumulate and ferment to make fertilizer. Completely wash the walls and equipment of the chicken house with detergent-added water, soak them for 2 hours, and then use high-pressure water. The parts of the equipment that need to be wiped should be carefully wiped, and dead corners or important parts should be carefully wiped with a brush when necessary.
Disinfect the house when it is still wet after rinsing. Some disinfectants may remain in the house. Therefore, after disinfection, rinse with clean water. If the previously used bactericide is formaldehyde, use fumigation again. Doors and windows must be closed tightly during fumigation and disinfection. Commonly used fumigants are formalin and potassium permanganate. Apply insecticide to the gap between the ground and the wall and the bottom of the column to ensure that the insects that enter the chicken house are killed. Close the chicken house, put in fresh cages, litter and sterilized equipment, and close the chicken house for 2-3 weeks.
The above are the main points and precautions for broiler farming equipment and chicken house disinfection introduced by chicken cage manufacturers for farmers.
