With the cold, wet weather upon us, now’s the time to be thinking about the condition of your chicken run, especially in cases where waterlogging is a problem.
New on the Flyte so Fancy website is Chicken Coop and Run Sanitising Powder, which is supplied in 2 and 5kg, re-sealable plastic tubs for £8.99 and £17.99 respectively.
It’s a new generation ground sanitiser and super-absorbent powder. It contains natural ingredients like Yucca to combat ammonia, seaweed and essential oils for anti-mite properties, with the addition of halamid which is a Defra-approved disinfectant powder for killing germs.
It’s claimed that the product will absorb at least 1.5 litres of water per kg of powder, and that this forms into dry clumps which are then easy to remove.
This can aid the fight against the coccidia growth (which leads to coccidiosis), as well as reducing humidity in the hen house to minimise the risk of respiratory infections.
Chicken Coop and Run Sanitising Powder is suitable for use with all animals and birds, doesn’t contain phosphates and can be ordered online at: www.flytesofancy.co.uk or by calling 01300 345229
