Keeping Your Chickens Healthy

Coccidiosis in Chickens

Coccidiosis is a parasitic disease caused by protozoa (singled-celled parasites), which live in the lining of the intestines.  It is a potential threat that can cause serious loss, so it is important that anyone keeping poultry knows how to minimise the risk of infection, when to suspect it and what to do in an emergency.  

There are several strains of coccidiosis that can cause internal disease and the symptoms vary with each strain.  The overall signs may be one or more of the following – bloody droppings, high mortality, general droopiness, emaciation, loss of appetite, diarrhoea and a drop in the number of eggs being laid.  If you suspect coccidiosis contact your vet immediately – coccidia multiply and reproduce within the bird very quickly.  A positive diagnosis can be made fom a detailed examination of post-mortem material in a veterinary laboratory and your vet will then be able to prescribe treatment for the rest of your flock.
