Know more about CRD
Chronic Respiratory Disease (CRD), also known as the bulgy eye or mycoplasmosis, is an upper respiratory infection caused by Mycoplasma gallisepticum. The disease occurs very commonly in backyard chicken flocks worldwide.
- Young birds less than 4 months of age and roosters tend to have more severe infections than older or adult birds.
- The characteristic signs include tracheal rales or gurgling sounds, nasal discharge, sneezing, gapping, and coughing. Conjunctivitis and eye discharge may be present in one or both eyes.
- There can (less commonly) be facial swelling and head shaking.
- Sources of infection include latently and chronically infected birds (domestic chickens and turkeys or wild birds).
- It spreads vertically (from breeding parents to offspring) and horizontally both directly from bird to bird and can be indirectly spread by living and inanimate vectors.
- Minimize contact with wild birds.
- Quarantine any new flock members, or any birds taken to a poultry show, swab, county fair, auction, etc. for 30 days prior to adding them to your flock.
- Minimize stress on the farm.
