Cameroon : Managing village chicken houses

Proper management of village chicken houses reduces the risk of diseases.

Chicken houses close to the ground are suitable to brooding hens since the chicks cannot enter a higher house. Dig a drain around such a house or raise the floor, so that it will stay dry during the rainy season.
-Cleaning the chicken house helps to prevent and control diseases, especially external parasites such as fleas and mites.
-Place wood ash or lime on the floor and walls to repel external parasites and facilitate the removal of manure when constructing the fowl house. You must regularly clean the fowl house.
