Ascites, also known as"'water belly," is a disease in which fluid accumulates in a bird's abdominal cavity. The fluid may contain yellow protein clots, giving it a yellowish tinge.
Ascites arise mainly in broiler and layer chicks due to following reasons:
1. Poor Ventilation : In winter, farms has to be closed to prevent birds from cold air. Due to which huge amount of ammonia gets collected inside the farm which reduce oxygen inside the farm thus cause ascites.
2. High Protein Feed.
