Cold sickness in chickens is known as chicken influenza disease, another name is Infectious Coryza or Snot. The organism was first discovered by Beach in 1920.
Actually this disease is rather rare in chickens, but often attacks chicken at all ages, especially 14 weeks of age and adult chickens.
Chickens usually occur in the rainy season or something to do with the cold and humid cage environment.
CAUSE OF BACTERIA
The cause of chicken colds is the bacterium Hemophilus gallinarum
Through direct contact between sick chickens and healthy chickens in one cage.
Through the cage equipment.
Food and drink contaminated with Hemophillus gallinarum bacteria
Swelling and edema of the face and eyes.
The nasal cavity gives off a sticky, foul-smelling mucus.
Chickens sneeze and shake their heads to release nasal secretions.
Petal matannya become sticky.
Pineapple in foul-smelling eyes that can swarm around the nostrils and poke around the nostrils and sinuses.
Inflammable sap in trachea and bronchi can produce snoring.
Appetite and drinking decreased resulting in decreased production.
Often accompanied by diarrhea and chickens may become dwarfed.
The mucous membranes of the nose and sinus have acute inflammation of the katar.
Inflammation of the eye membrane.
Below the lower bark of the skin on the face and bones.
Pneumonia and inflammation of the air sacs
Examples of diseases such as nasal tampons from the eyes and nose and tissue from the respiratory tract, especially the windpipe and throat branches, are sent to the laboratory in fresh, cold conditions for the isolation and identification of bacteria. Materials of this examination should be taken from the incidence of new diseases to avoid contamination by secondary bacteria.
Chickens are sickly colds separated from healthy chicken cages (groups).
Do not mix chickens of different ages.
The enclosure and the environment must always be clean.
Keep in the cage exposed to the sun.
Treatment in Cutting
Chickens that catch cold can be cut and the meat may be consumed.
Dead chicken carcasses and cutting remains burned or buried.
