In the production of chickens, many employees or farmers have not mastered the reasonable method of cleaning the drinking fountains, so that the drinking fountains have not been thoroughly cleaned. For a long time, the drinking fountains will accumulate foreign materials, pollute the water, and endanger the health of the chickens. Therefore, in the production of chickens, the following methods can be used to clean different types of drinking fountains.
1, cleaning of poultry drinking barrels
Drinking barrels are commonly used water supply equipment for chicken production. Especially in the brooding period of chicks, many chicken farms use water bottles for water supply. Long-term use of the water bottle, the inside of the pot body has a very bad smell, touch the sticky substance by hand, which is a foreign matter formed by the long-term accumulation of drugs, vaccines and impurities in the water remaining in the inside of the kettle body. If it is not cleared in time, foreign matter pollutes the water and harms the health of the chicken.
In the production of chickens, many farmers only cleaned the kettle bottom plate and the outer surface of the kettle, while the inside of the kettle body was the main part of the water, and it was not thoroughly cleaned. This is because the diameter of the drinking water bottle produced by most manufacturers is too small, the hand does not reach the inside, and it cannot be cleaned or cleaned thoroughly. Many farmers in the production only wash the water in the drinking water bottle. This method can not completely remove the foreign matter inside the drinking water body. Therefore, in the production of chickens, the bottom of the kettle, the outer surface of the kettle and the inside of the kettle body need to be thoroughly cleaned to ensure clean and hygienic drinking water.
For the cleaning of the water bottle, first, choose a rag suitable for cleaning the water bottle. Wipes require 60% cotton and 40% polyester. You can also use worn underwear to make rags. A rag that is soft, absorbent, and clean can be used to completely remove foreign matter. Second, find the available cleaning methods. Carefully clean the bottom of the water bottle, the outer surface of the kettle and the inside of the kettle. If the diameter of the drinking water bottle is too small, when cleaning the inside of the kettle body, the fist-sized rag group can be wetted with water and put into the inside of the kettle body. Hold the kettle neck with one hand, tilt the kettle body upside down, and rotate quickly to make the rag. The mass is rotated from the top of the pot to the neck of the kettle in the interior of the kettle. Take out the rag group and wash it with a watering can. This will remove the foreign matter inside the kettle body. Adding a disinfectant to the water while cleaning, the cleaning effect is better.
2, cleaning of poultry nipple drinker
The nipple drinker is the most widely used water supply device in the chicken industry today. Although water is sealed in the nipple drinker and is not in contact with the outside world, it is often used in clinical production for drinking water and drinking water. In addition to the long-term use of drinking water systems, some drugs, vaccines and impurities in water are easily deposited or adhered to drinking water. In the system, a metamorphic viscous foreign body, a biofilm, is stored in the drinking water system, which pollutes the water and harms the health of the chicken. Therefore, the nipple drinker must also be cleaned frequently to ensure that the drinking water is clean and hygienic.
For the cleaning of the nipple drinker, the maintenance of the nipple drinker must be done normally. Prevent water mixed with impurities from flowing into the nipple drinker, contaminating and clogging the drinker. When the nipple drinker is idle, the water stored in the water tank should be drained, and several drinking nipples should be opened in the water pipe section at a lower position to discharge the water remaining in the water pipe to prevent the water from deteriorating and pollute the drinking water system. After drinking water or drinking water, rinse the water pipe and water tank with clean water to prevent the vaccine or drug accumulation from remaining in the drinking water system, sedimentation, deterioration, and pollution of water quality. In production practice, if there is foreign matter in the nipple drinker, the water pipe can be flushed with a high-pressure water pipe by opening one end of the water pipe and connecting the high-pressure water pipe to the other end, allowing the high-pressure water to flow quickly through the drinking water pipe, and rinsing the nipple drinking water pipe through the high-pressure rapid water flow. Viscous metamorphic foreign bodies and sediments. If there is a biofilm in the nipple drinking water pipe, hydrogen peroxide or organic acid can be used to remove the biofilm. This method is often used to flush the water pipe to prevent the formation of viscous foreign matter and the deposition of foreign matter in the water, thus ensuring clean and hygienic drinking water.
3, cleaning of poultry drinking water trough
Drinking troughs have not been used in large chicken farms, but drinking water tanks are still used as water supply equipment in many small chicken farms and rural chicken farms. In the production of chicken, most of the "U" type and "V" type sinks are used. The sink and the trough are close to each other. The chicken feed feed is the easiest to bring the feed into the sink. If it is not removed in time, the feed and Foreign matter can accelerate the deterioration of water quality and must be thoroughly removed to ensure clean drinking water.
For cleaning the drinking water trough, first, choose a suitable rag. The rag requirements are the same as those for the water bottle. According to the configuration of the water tank, the rag group is wetted by hand and compacted in the water tank, and scrubbed from one end to the other end to clean the water tank. Soak the rag with disinfectant for better cleaning results. Second, choose a reasonable cleaning time. Reasonable cleaning time should be done in the morning. This will allow the flock to drink fresh and clean water in the morning. Many breeders cleaned the sink before turning off the lights in the morning to make themselves sleep more in the morning. It is wrong to think that the chickens are not drinking water and the sink is clean after the lights are turned off. Although the chickens rarely drink water at night, the environmental dust and chicken garbage in the house will pollute the cleaned water tank after the lights are turned off, and the drinking water cannot be cleaned and sanitized. In addition, the drinking water in the drinking water tank is most vulnerable to the pollution of the environment and the dust in the house. Therefore, the drinking water tank must be cleaned every day and washed in a dirty environment to ensure clean and hygienic drinking water.
