Do You Have Poop On Your Mind?
Poop On - Try Poop-Off
As I get ready for breeding, I take some time to clean my cages as once I pair the birds, I will only replace dirty nests and not clean any cages or even change the Kay-cob I use on the floor. (Kay-cob must be kept dry, as it can mold, so outside waters and bathes must be used.)
Cleaning activity and all activity in the aviary must be kept to a minimum so as to not disturb the birds. I go in the aviary first thing when the light comes on for a quick feeding of those birds with chicks, and then return a few hours later to feed them again and at this second entry, I feed and water all the birds. I give a third chick feeding later in the day.
Where does all the poop come from? And even more curious, how does it even get on the cage ceiling??
Poop-off really help me clean the cages and wires. It is non-toxic and contains enzymes that dissolves bird dropping. I simply clean the debris from the cage and spray on Poop-Off. Wait a few minutes and wipe with a paper towel. Difficult spots may require another treatment and some scrubbing with a plastic scrubber (Debbie brand works great). I especially like to use the scrubber on the Poop-Off bottle for poop on cage wire.
