Which disinfectant?

Recommended Posts

We have a 2m x 3m walk in with a thick layer of wood chip on the floor for our 5 hens. What would you recommend to use on the ground as a disinfectant and how often would you use it?

I use Stalosan F, BioDri or Nettex Ground Sanitising powder, usually which ever I see in the shed first.

Wouldn't do it too often as you have lots of space, probably do mine 3-4 times a year :)

I use Nettex Ground Sanitising Powder. When I first had my run set up like this (wood chip on slabs) I used it every week or so, now, like Lewis, it’s probably only 3 or 4 times a year.

I have just order Stalosan F from Flyte's of Fancy, it is arriving today. I have read so many recommendations and this seems to be the one to use. I also have woodchips on slabs and I have read that every 3/4 months as a preventative seems to be the best method with regular poo picking. Giving it all a good raking & 1handful scattered per sqm is the recommend way. I can let you know how I get on if you wish?
