As the saying goes willing umbrella before it rains, as well as the poultry world in welcoming the arrival of the rainy season. Umbrellas for the cultivation of the poultry cages in the form of readiness to face the rainy season, the appropriateness of management of conditions encountered during the rainy season, the readiness officer cage anticipate all possibilities.

Readiness of the cage.

Before the rainy season arrives, the cage must be prepared. That need to be examined include: * The condition of the roof: Please fix the roof when there is leakage. The entry of rain water can cause wet litter, feed, and even chicken. This incident may lead to the occurrence of cases of mushroom, hipotermi, as well as increasing ammonia content. In addition, the entry of rainwater into the causes of wood or bamboo cage skeleton fast brittle, thus making the operational cost increases. · Condition warehouse: Warehouse should remain in dry conditions, so that feed quality can be maintained. When the damp cellar floor, the use of buffer feed is recommended. Buffer can be made from wood, and bamboo. · Channel Water: Shared well water to prevent the cage from flooding, as well as wet chicken manure. With the smooth flow of water, is expected puddles around the cage can be reduced. · Air drink: In the rainy season when the volume of water in water sources increased, sometimes the water level is almost equal to the soil surface. If the water source is located in an area of high bacteria content, such as near the cage, close landfills, it is advisable to provide chlorine in drinking water.

Suitability of management. Among them feed management, sanitation, biosecurity and management of litter. · Management of feed: feed storage must take into account the condition of the warehouse during the rainy season. Avoid wet feed, because it will affect the quality of feed, good composition, the form of fragrance, as well as avoid the growth of fungi on food. · Sanitation: Prepare the dipping pen in advance. · Biosecurity: wet rainy season followed by the increasing population of flies and mosquitoes, this is due to the existence of stagnant water around the cage. Flies and mosquitoes are vectors of various diseases. For that effort to eradicate the insect must be a program when the rainy season. · Management litter. Try to stay dry litter. When the litter is wet try to be replaced soon. Another thing to consider is the supply of litter during the rainy season should be enough.

Transmission through direct contact between chickens sick with chicken healthy through food, drink and contaminated dust. Colibacilosis can cause embryonic death. Yolk sac infection, omfalis, oophoritis, salpingitis, koligranuloma and arthritis. This can be done by optimizing sanitation, bisecurity and air vents.

  • Coccidiosis: Caused by Eimeria (protozoa). The disease attacks the digestive tract of chicken so that the symptoms that often arises is dysentery. Prevention by optimizing sanitation, ventilation, sunlight and biosecurity.
  • Mushroom: Type of fungus that often attacks the chicken was Aspergillus. These fungi enter the body through food or chicken litter. This fungus mainly attacks the respiratory tract of chicken.
  • Other diseases transmitted by rats and mosquitoes fly vectors. In the rainy season, there are a lot of puddles around the cage, so the mosquito population increases. Wet chicken manure also causes the fly population increases. With the rain, the bushes around the cage also becomes dense so that a rat harborage. For that rat eradication program, flies and mosquitoes should be conducted in the rainy season.
