Buying chicks is an impulse buy, and it’s hard to resist. However, if you purchase the wrong ones you may end up regretting it. The joy (and eggs) chickens can bring can last for a long time. The journey of buying and raising chicks is wonderful, but it implies a lot of responsibility.
It is essential to make sure that chickens purchased for laying eggs are of the right age and are not “lemons”. A sick bird will have bright eyes, active birds, red combs, unusual droppings, unusual posture, lethargy, lack of appetite, and reduced egg production – all indications that closer observation is needed.Read More
There is no doubt that the first on the list is quail disease, otherwise known as ulcerative enteritis. This disease is a disease that is spread by birds, not just chickens and turkeys. Names like quail disease demonstrate that quail are vulnerable to this condition.
The bacteria that cause ulcerative enteritis enter the bird’s system through the droppings of other birds. A fly that has been in direct contact with an ill bird can also transmit the disease.
The bacteria that causes quail disease causes lesions inside a quail’s digestive tract, which usually results in quail death. Treatment for this disease is available for chickens. Healthy chickens, however, can easily contract the infection from infected chickens.
