Postville, Iowa Authoring Deafer Laying house cleaning time comes in the fall, says R. E. Phillips, head of the Poultry Husbandry Department at Iowa State College. Houses should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected from the cracks in the floor to the top of the rafters. Pullets fresh from the summer range are usually free from lice, mites and disease. Giving the laying house a thorough cleaning protects gains made by the pullets before housing time and puts the damper on possible disease outbreaks this winter. Growing pullets on clean range to prevent them from becoming contaminated by diseases and parasites and then moving them into clean quarters is the best insurance against mortality, Phillips says. First step is to clean out all litter and dust. Clean first; disinfect afterwards, says Phillips. Dirt and manure may protect disease germs from disinfectants. After taking out all dirt, scrub the floor, the equipment and all other parts of the house that can be reached with a mixture of three ounces of lye to one gallon of scalding hot water. Equip ment, such as dropping boards and feeders, may be moved out side where rain will loosen man ure first. It is a good idea to al low sunlight to hit the equipment for a few days. Sunlight is a strong disinfectant, Phillips reminds. Cresol, DDT, sheep spray or standard coal tar disinfectants should be sprayed over all equip ment and the entire interior surface of the laying house after it is cleaned. Phillips says to keep the house empty and open for several days to allow airing and exposure to sunlight.
