How to prevent cold and reduce ammonia in chicken coops in winter?


In winter, people who raise chickens often attach great importance to cold protection and warmth, but they tend to neglect ventilation, which increases the concentration of harmful gases such as hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, and especially ammonia in the house. Hot and humid chicken houses, poor ventilation, high stocking density, and repeated use of litter will increase the ammonia concentration. Due to the low temperature in winter, the water content of the manure discharged by the chickens, coupled with the poor ventilation of the chicken house, the high ammonia concentration, it is very easy to cause chicken ammonia poisoning.

Therefore, to remove the ammonia in the chicken house in winter, you can pass the following points:
Acetic acid fumigation:
Take 0.5 kg of vinegar and 0.5 liter of water in a casserole, boil and evaporate in the chicken house for 10 minutes each time, remove the heating device after each fumigation, so as not to consume too much oxygen in the house. This method can not only eliminate the ammonia in the chicken house, but also reduce the concentration of other toxic gases.
Spray formalin:
Dilute commercially available formalin into a 10% solution and spray it in the chicken house every 3 to 5 days, which can reduce the ammonia concentration in the environment and disinfect the environment.
Cleaning and changing the litter:
Remove the feces and litter in the chicken house in time, especially when the flat rearing is implemented, the removal of feces and litter should be strengthened, and new litter should be replaced in time.
Sewage and dehumidification:
While doing a good job of heat preservation in the house, attention should be paid to sewage and dehumidification, and the fan should be turned on regularly to increase air exchange to keep the indoor air fresh. If a person enters the chicken house and feels a strong smell of ammonia, the ammonia concentration at this time is roughly 25PPM, which is far beyond the prescribed standard, and ventilation should be done immediately, so that the person feels it is not stuffy or pungent.
Sprinkle superphosphate:
Sprinkle superphosphate in the chicken house to combine with ammonia to form ammonium phosphate. Sprinkle it once a week, 0.5 kg per 10 square meters.
With chicken spray peracetic acid:
Use the acetic acid produced by the decomposition of peracetic acid in the air to neutralize (generate ammonium acetate) the large amount of ammonia that may be contained in the chicken house. The method is to dilute the commercially available 20% peracetic acid to 0.3% and spray 30 per cubic meter of space. Milliliter, once to twice a week, spray once a day in the morning and evening during the chicken's onset period.
