Disinfection of broiler cage and chicken raising equipment

The use of broiler battery cages is currently a common equipment used by modern farmers to breed broilers, and broiler cages can generally be used for more than ten years. Therefore, in order to ensure the hygiene of broiler cage equipment and chicken houses, in order to avoid less disease in chickens, farmers should regularly disinfect chicken cages and chicken houses. This is more conducive to the growth of the chicken flock and improve the economic efficiency of the farmers.

Proper broiler cage disinfection should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before introduction of new chicken. Each house should be free for at least 2 weeks after disinfection and fumigation.

The disinfection effect of the chicken house and the broiler cage depends on the degree of thorough cleaning before the bactericidal drug, rather than the disinfectant used. Thorough cleaning is the most basic method to reduce the total number of pathogens, remove the contamination of hidden pathogens, and expose pathogens to sunlight, air, and disinfectants.

Clean up the chicken battery cages and broiler cages, and eliminate all the chickens in the house, and remove the feces and debris scattered inside and outside the chicken coops and broiler cages. Remove the remaining feed and the unused feed should be discarded. The trough and the tank should be thoroughly cleaned, and the residual feed attached to the bottom and the four walls of the tank must be removed to avoid becoming a source of infection. The mobile device is removed from the house and cleaned, disinfected and exposed to sunlight. Moving the unsterilized equipment back to the house will destroy the disinfection effect of the house and lead to re-contamination.

Initially clean the house, wash the ceiling, walls and windows with water to remove the attached dust. The splashed sewage and dirt are finally transferred to the place away from the chicken house and fermented as fertilizer, together with all the litter on the ground, litter scattered outside the chicken house, garbage in the feed room and weeds outside the house. Thoroughly wash the walls and equipment of the house with detergent-laden water for 2 hours, then use high-pressure water. The part that the device needs to wipe should be carefully wiped, and the dead corner or important parts should be brushed carefully if necessary.

Disinfect when the house is still wet after rinsing. Some disinfectants may remain in the house and broiler cages. Therefore, after disinfection, rinse with water. If the previously used fungicide is formaldehyde, it is re-fumigation. When fumigation is disinfected, the doors and windows should be closed. The commonly used fumigants are formalin and potassium permanganate. Apply insecticide to the cracks between the floor and the wall and the bottom of the column to ensure that the insects entering the house are killed. Close the house, put in fresh cages, litter and sanitized equipment, and close the house for 2-3 weeks.
