5 tips for early knowledge of chicken disease

1. Get up early and turn on the lights to observe the chickens.
After getting up early and turning on the lights, the healthy chickens barked when the breeder come, showing that they were in urgent need of food. If the chickens in the cage are lazy after the lights are turned on, lie still in the cage, close their eyes and doze off, curl their heads under their wings or stand in a daze, droop their wings and puffy feathers, it indicates that the chicken has been ill.

2., Look down at chicken feces.
Get up early and observe the chicken feces. The feces excreted by healthy chickens are strip or mass, with a small amount of urate, forming a white tip at the end of the feces. If the disease occurs, there will be diarrhea, the feathers around the anus will be polluted, the hair will be wet and the buttocks will be pasted, and the feces of sick chickens will be green, yellow and white. Sometimes, there will be yellow, white and red mixed color and egg white like loose stool.
3.Observe the feeding of chickens
Healthy chickens are lively and have a strong appetite when feeding. There is a crow in the whole chicken house. When the chicken is sick, the spirit is in a daze, the appetite is reduced, and feeds is left always in the feeding trough.
4. Observe egg laying.
The laying time and laying rate of laying hens should be observed and monitored every day. At the same time, the damage rate of laying eggs and the change of eggshell quality should also be checked. The egg shell has good quality, few sand eggs, few soft eggs and low egg breaking rate. When the egg laying rate is normal all day, the egg breaking rate is not more than 10%. On the contrary, it indicates that the chicken has begun to get sick. We should carefully analyze and find out the causes and take measures as soon as possible.
5. Listen to the chicken house in the evening.
Listen to the sound in the chicken house at night after turning off the lights. Generally healthy chickens rest and silent in half an hour after turning off the lights. If you hear “gurgling” or “snoring”, coughing, wheezing and screaming, you should consider that it may be infectious and bacterial diseases.
