Good evening standcoders, I’m mr. Elvis Chris, A standcode official, I will be teaching about Salmonellosis and animals infecting our birds today with salmonella. salmonella has created a large count of mortality in poultries today however, after reading this Epistle you will understand all about this very gram-negative bacteria and how to treat it because it’s an antibiotic resistor if treated wrongly.
Salmonellosis is an intestinal-tract infection, a Gram-negative enterobacterium that causes typhoid fever, Salmonella lives in the intestinal tracts of birds and other animals but salmonella has two species namely Salmonella enterica and Salmonella bongori.
Birds will contact Salmonella through contaminated food, dirty environment, stool, water, and even from their mother after the egg is been laid, and secondly when any of the animals listed are affected with salmonella and the contaminates the food of your birds just note that your birds have contacted the disease. Its healthy for your birds if you disallow them from getting in touch with other domestic or wild animals.
Symptoms of Salmonellosis
fluffed feathers and mortality can be up to 90% if not treated.
Do not allow your birds to waste their food to the ground so that they won’t eat from the ground.
Do not allow wild or domestic animals to get in touch with your birds but if any other animal has neared your birds and you think the animal that neared your flock is infected kindly serve your birds with antibiotic for prevention.
Dont serve your birds left over food which may be contaminated by rats.
Ensure your biosecurity is 99.9% this will disable all attacks in your farm.
