What do you mean "torch" your cages ?
And why every 2nd year ?


LOL biannually = 2x per year, so, spring and fall I pull the cages and use a hand held propane torch from local hardware store to burn and heat the wire of the cages, j-feeders and metal water dishes to remove debris (angora fibers, shed fur from Silver Foxes, spider webs, etc.), diseases (staph, etc), and other undesirables (coccidia, fur mites, etc).

My breeding takes place in the winter and all my does insist on building a poop pancake for the babies, and since I believe that the poop pancake is where the babies get their start on growing good gut bacteria, I leave the pancakes until the spring cleaning.
