Since it’s the COVID-19 period right now, we have reduced our weekend outings, so today I shall share some tips on cleaning of our chicken cage.
Tip: We pour Dettol into a small spray bottle that you can easily spray out evenly and reduce wastage.
Don’t forget to clean and wash your feeder too!
And leave it to sun it for as long as you can. I usually leave it for a few hours! It’s a natural and free disinfectant too!
Note: if you are worried about the residual smell of Dettol, this method works great for me. Because putting in a spray bottle, controls the amount of Dettol used. And after rinsing, there’s no Dettol smell at all.
I also sun it for a couple of hours before I put wood shavings in. In fact, if the sun is good, I will sun it again after putting the diatomaceous earth and wood shavings in!
Add your fresh wood shavings in, and don’t forget to also sprinkle DENutrients Diatomaceous Earth in evenly.
Make sure you mix them in and make sure the wood shavings are evenly coated with food grade Diatomaceous Earth!
This helps prevent odor, mites, ants, fleas! And makes a great natural dewormer and supplement for the chickens too.
