If you want to mix it with bananas, mash the bananas until smooth, then mix with a puree like step no. 1.


Likewise if you want to mix it with Kroto, crickets, or caterpillars. Mix with pur porridge like step no 1.


But it can also be without the need to be mixed with pur porridge. If you want to give crickets and caterpillars, just give crickets and caterpillars that are still small.


Give the pur mixture every 1 or 1.5 hours (if the puppy cannot feed itself at all). But if the saplings can feed themselves, feed them however you like.


There's nothing wrong with bribing every now and then to build a bond between the puppy and you as the master.


Always check by smelling pur mixture, because pur mixture mixed with water will become stale.


The smell of stale pur concoction will be very sour and sour when smelled. Therefore, in making pur mixture, pay attention to the amount of pur, not too much because it is useless, later it must be discarded and replaced with new material if it is stale. Usually the pur concoction will go stale within 5 or 6 hours.

How to Make a Simple Duck Cage From Bamboo

Duck cages - ducks are indeed farm animals that live in colonies unlike chickens that look for their own food, therefore in raising ducks it is necessary to have quite a lot of ducks.




Ducks usually prefer to be released in rice fields that have been harvested or even in rivers and other places that wallow and water.


How to Make a Duck Cage


There are many things to consider in making a cage that ducks like. namely there are puddles for me to play in and there is also a place to shelter from direct sunlight, lots of cages and what kinds of materials can be used to make a colony of duck cages.


1 . Bamboo


Many can be used from this one plant. For example, only small bamboo shoots, namely (BAMBUNG) which are small bamboo shoots that can be used as food ingredients for many processed foods that use bamboo shoots.


In making the cage must be in accordance with the land to be used, you can example duck cage below:


depending on the size you need, in making the cage it should be about 1 meter or more and made rather tightly so that it makes it difficult for pests that will eat ducks and duck thieves. and don't forget to also make shelter for the ducks from the heat, if the land is large enough, you should make a pond or duck puddle so that the ducks feel at home in the cage.


2 . Waring


For those who don't know waring, I will explain waring which is a long net, which is usually used to make fish cages or protect farmers' fields from disturbances from other animals such as chickens or ducks as well as children playing in the fields.


Is waring good in making duck cages, of course it is better if waring is specially designed to protect waring, indeed waring is not as strong as bamboo, but waring is quite effective in making livestock cages.


if you have a waring that is not used, it is better to use it to make other livestock cages, especially ducks. example of a duck cage that uses waring:


The picture above is only for your reference in making duck cage ideas, for the poles you can use wood, bamboo and iron if you have one. then hooked or tied using a rope or wire commonly used to make castings in buildings. size according to your land.


3 . Wall


This one is indeed a fairly large capital in its manufacture, starting from making a foundation and then making a wall, indeed in this way it is classified as safe from animal attacks, namely monitor lizards and snakes and usually thieves.


wild animals eat duck eggs or even prey on the ducks themselves. in the manufacture according to your wishes or according to your land. Don't forget to also provide shelter for the ducks from the hot sun or rain and the good thing is that in the duck cage there is also land for ducks or pools of water to swim to get additional feed too.

How to Make a Quality Goat Cage

A good cage system will determine the success of the goat business.




This is because the cage system will assist in goat rearing management such as facilitating feeding and drinking, mating, handling births, handling sick goats, and others.


For example, when the farmer is going to give feed, it will be difficult if the feeder is too high because the farmer has to lift the feed first.


On the other hand, farmers will easily provide feed if the height of the feeder is in accordance with the reach of the breeder.


A good quality cage will also be a comfortable place for goats to live, grow, and breed. Goats can be protected from direct wind and protected from the heat of the sun and rain.


 Goats can also get healthy and refreshing air and can live in peace because they are protected from germs, fleas, flies, and mosquitoes.


With a good cage, goats get maximum care so that they can produce optimally as well. A good cage will also facilitate the use of urine and goat manure to be used as compost so that it can increase the economic value of goat farming.


In a good stable situation, the stable staff will feel comfortable keeping the goats and will be eager to work. Therefore, a good cage size can be judged automatically when we are in the middle of the cage.


Poor housing will be the cause of the failure of the goat business. There are often cases of cempe being trampled to death, trapped between the floor of the cage, or freezing to death. This is because farmers do not provide separate cages for each period of goat life and pay less attention to local wind conditions.


Poor management of the cage will also make the distribution of feed uneven so that the uniformity of goat growth will also be low.


Some fatal events that are actually unlikely to happen are goats dying from maggots in rotting wounds and cases of dead goats hanging in the cage. These two things don't really need to happen if the cage construction is good.


The size of the cage must also be in accordance with the physiological phase, type of goat, and the purpose of rearing. The size of the cage for fattening is different from the size of the cage for breeding.
