What cleaning and disinfection practices are used in hatcheries ?
After each hatching, wash and disinfect :
the rooms in question;
the tops of the machines;
dust and down discharge ducts.
Disinfecting hatchers destroys the micro-organisms still present on surfaces after the cleaning steps.
The following procedure is used :
general cleanout (removal of down and waste);
applying a detergent (enzyme foam) followed by rinsing;
spray disinfection (bactericidal and fungicidal disinfectant: LCB 130B).
A second disinfection by ultradiffusion (FUMAGRI OPP ; FUMAGRI HA) or fogging (LCB 130B) is required once a week and systematically after each hatching in case of an identified health incident (Salmonella, Aspergillus).
