Most farmers has cried about this particular disease about how it gets in touch with their flock even as the have vaccinated and treated their flock against it. Let me educate you on something you should know, coccidiosis in birds is normal, its a disease that float in their blood streams so far they are alive. However, you need to treat them often and make sure their environment is clean in other to disable this disease coccidiosis.
coccidiosis is a deadly disease in poultry, coccidiosis appear in poultry whether you treat it or not.
This disease called coccidiosis is something you need to be mindful on, as its a slow killer. Many farmers has lost their flock because of this particular disease, this happened because they were ignorant of the disease and how it affects their flock.
coccidiosis is a simple disease to treat if you understand its symptom’s and the right drugs administration to administer, I understand that most of the things that kill our birds today are farmers administering the wrong drug at the sick time and them also administering the right drugs at the wrong time.
The main substance that stops coccidiosis is amprolium. Most farmers will administer drugs which does not in anyway refer to a particular sickness, they kept on administering the wrong drug until their flocks are weak and vulnerable to other diseases then the would rise to the vet to ask if their is another solution the can get in other to heal their flock. Sorry, At this time, for you to heal your flock is complicated because you allowed their immune system to get weak.
Let me ask you a question; As a human being, When you have common malaria, if you are given pain/fever killers drugs for several weeks, what would happen to you?
I know you would die or by chance be alive by God grace. But you have to understand that one of the symptom of malaria is fever, though you have taken fever killer drug but since you haven’t killed the parasite of the malaria with Artemether and Lumefantrine which are ingredients used in producing malaria drugs, there is no how you can get well. So now, lets bring it into farming system, if your birds suffer from coccidiosis and you administer fowl pox drugs, how can they get well? This are reasons why most farmers, their flock are wiped in jiffy by a single disease attack.
Don’t get tired about my illustration I talk too much, I would teach you about the herbal drug which brought you here, I will bring it to your own understanding just that I like to elaborate from the scratch so that an abecedarian would understand.
Once you own a poultry, there are things you need to be mindful On.
You need to understand and know the limit of feed your flock eat in a day, Your flock feed consumption is expected to be going higher than it decreasing, because broiler is for meat production, the are expected to eat more to gain flesh than been on mute and get lanky. However, if feed consumption reduces, kindly know there is problem with your flock either;
(1) there was not sufficient water for them to drink and eat. (2) A disease preventing them from eating. (3) the have over feeded and have no urge to eat again.
Note: If the have over feeded which is enabling them to eat less, its normal. Hence, enforce them and administer Rich vitamins like (vitamix supplement) to help them digest their food quickly. Remember, when the eat more the grow fast as to reach in market before time of Harvest, this will however save some cost of feed for you.
