Cage Cleaning of large herds
« on: May 24, 2006, 03:02:53 PM »

With 110 chinchillas of my own to keep up with I was just wondering how other breeders schedule their cleaning.     Do you clean them all in one day or do a few at a time each day?

i clean mine once a week, mainly of habit and i only have about 15 cages. but i know larger breeders (i.e. circle M) cleans theirs every two weeks. we usally start about 9 am and finish about 4pm. thats cleaning at leat 500 cages, cleaning the floors, feeding and watering. its a two people team. but i enjoy it.
