A fungal infection of chickens. All chickens can be infected, with high morbidity and mass mortality. It is characterized by inflammation of the respiratory tract, so it is also called Aspergillus pneumonia. Most dangerous to chicks.
1. Preventive measures against Chicken Aspergillosis
No moldy bedding, no moldy feed. The litter should be turned over and dried frequently. When mildew grows, it can be fumigated and disinfected with formalin. The sand used for feeding chickens should be washed clean.
After the brooding room is contaminated by Aspergillus fumigatus, it must be thoroughly cleaned, soiled and disinfected, and then covered with clean bedding.
The temperature difference in the brooding room should not be too large, and good ventilation should be maintained.
In the rainy season, special attention should be paid to prevent the litter and feed from becoming moldy.
Mold Di has the effect of eliminating Aspergillus contamination, which can significantly reduce the degree of mold contamination in the hatching room or on the eggs.
When the eggs are hatched for 17 days, put the tablets into the incubator and smoke them.
If the pollution is serious, it needs to be smoked once on the day when the eggs are put in.
The dosage is 4 to 8 tablets per 100 cubic meters of space. People and animals are not allowed to enter the hatching room during smoking to prevent poisoning.
