A new study in Nigeria reveals that chickens are more susceptible than guinea fowl to velogenic Newcastle disease and that whereas the Kudu-113 infection is viscerotropic in chickens, it is neurotropic in guinea fowls....
Effect of Coarsely Ground Corn on Broiler Live Performance, GI Tract, Digestibility and Digesta Particle Size
Diets that contained 25 and 50 per cent coarsely ground corn improved broiler bodyweight, feed conversion ratio and digestibility of energy and protein, according to new research from North Carolina State University....
Frequent Application of Litter Amendments in Broiler Houses During Grow-out on Bird Health, Production and Environment
A series of experiments at the University of Delaware show that frequent application of sodium bisulphate improved broiler production performance and foot pad quality and reduced ammonia emissions and Salmonella counts....
Effect of Ventilation on Distribution, Concentration and Emission of Air Pollutants in a Manure-belt Layer House
A new study from China indicates that it is difficult to control both poultry house environment and pollutant concentrations using only ventilation....
Effect of Maternal Vitamin D Source on Broiler Hatching Egg Quality, Hatchability and Progeny
A reduction in embryonic mortality was observed in a field trial in Canada when broiler breeders received additional 25-hydroxy vitamin D in the drinking water but the long-term effects were negligible on the performance or bone strength of the offspring....

Intestinal Events and Nutritional Dynamics Predispose Clostridium Perfringens Virulence in Broilers
The changes occurring in the chicken gut that can lead to a build-up of the pathogen causing necrotic enteritis are outlined by an Auburn University professor, who adds that feed enzyme supplementation can help to create an environment in which the bacteria...
Effect of Lasalocid or Salinomycin on Performance and Immunity Following Coccidia Vaccination of Broilers
A new study in the US has examined the benefits of giving the ionophores, lasalocid or salinomycin, to in-ovo coccidia-vaccinated chickens. ...

Questions and Answers on Highly Pathogenic H5N8 Avian Influenza
A summary of current knowledge on the H5N8 highly pathogenic avian influenza virus from the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE)....
Tool to Measure Biosecurity at Broiler Farms and Relationship with Performance and Antimicrobial Use
Research from Belgium using an online questionnaire to assess biosecurity on poultry farms reveals that while the theory is well understood, there is room for improvement in practice....
Backyard Chickens in the United States: Survey of Flock Owners
A survey of almost 1,500 owners of backyard poultry flocks in the US reveals information that may contribute to maintaining good biosecurity and improving the health and welfare of backyard flocks....
Using Litter Amendments during Broiler Grow-out for Better Production, Health and Environment
