How to clean chicken Lubing Drinker Cups

Cleaning your Lubing drinker cups should be a part of your regular chicken coop maintenance routine. Generally, the drinker cups will only need a hose-clean to remove light soiling.

If the surface is looking slightly soiled, then you can add some warm water to the cups and wipe them out with a clean microfibre cloth.

Giving your drinker cups a quick wash each week will prevent the need for a thorough cleanse

From time to time the Lubing cups may need a more thorough clean, requiring you to disassemble the lubing cup
