Major Threat to
io«is is one of the most destructive
diseaMs of p-wltry, and is a con*
tinuous threat to the flock of every
poultryman.” says Ben Wormeli.

found, though only four cause real
difficulty to chickens The disease
is intestinal, with each species c/f
coccidia attacking a particular part
of the intestine The disease or-
ganisms go through their life cycle
largely in cells of the intestinal
lining, causing severe hemorrhages
when infection is heavy.
Mature coccidia, called oocysts,
are spread to other birds through
dropping. Symptoms of the di-
sease develop slowly in a flock.
Chickens show evidence of weak-
ness and ruffled feathers. They
huddle together as if cold ar.d
there is a drop in feed consump-
tion. Early diagnosis by a com-
petent laboratory is necessary if
corrective medication is to be ap-
plied soon enough to head off dis-
astrous losses, says Wormed. ,
Drugs for medication are now
available from hatcheries, feed
mills and veterinarians. Recom-
mendations tyr treatment should
be followed exactly as outlined
on the container, cautions Wor-
meli. Chicken quarters should be
kept clean and dry, and all wet
areas should bo removed and re-
placed with dry litter.
It is possible that only enough
coccidia organisms may be picked
up tv cause a light infection. This
does little harm and helps the
chicken build up resistance to the
particular species of coccidia that
(caused the infection.
••U«« of preventative drugs rail-
■ id coccidiostats it widespread to
1 prevent aevere losses and at tho
same time allow light infection
that will develop immunity. This
protection is provided by using l;/W
preventative levels of certain
drugs in feed till birds are eight or
nine weeks old. Some poultry-
mcn feel that a preventative love!
of these drugs should be fed to
pullets during the first two or
three weeks after they have been
moved into flovr type laying
houses,” says Wormell.

poultry maiketing specialist, says
not many new’ approaches have
been used to inform consumers
about egg values at the retail level.
Price on » doeen basis has been
the big sales appeal in selling eggs
for many years. Beanblossom poses
these questions: Why not tell the
consumer about the food value in
a dozen of eggs which weigh one
and a half pounds’’ Are consumers
entirely familiar with the fact that
eggs are one of the basic seven
foods needed for maintaining good
health? Are consumers familiar
with grades and quality factors?
The specialist believes that ad-
vertising could supplement educa-
tional work by pointing out such
tacts that quality and size of eggs
weather with three times a Jay
gathering as a minimum.
Low quality is costly to pro-
ducers selling on grade “A” qual-
ity eggs of similiar size normally
bring four to six cents a dozen
more than B quality eggs. Eggs
can be properly cooled for as
little as 10 cents a case.

Quality is based on factors such
as condition of yolk and albumen
along with the cleanliness, sound-
ness and evlor of shell. The air weejc
good refrigeration, eggs should
be delivered to the grading sta-
tion either tw'ice or three times a

egg quality. Eye appeal with re-

Interior quality can be measured
only by 'seeing the egg before a

for shell eggs have been candled
for quality and sorted for size by
a qualified egg grader.
