Hi all, I´m working in a poultry farm including both broiler and layers. Lately, we have observed lameness in broiler chickens between age of 2 weeks up to 3 weeks with a prevalence of 3% with higher prevalence in customer level, what do you think about the causes of this lameness?

important things to consider
1, body frame development
3, light stimulation and intensity
4,nutrition mainly Ca balance and the amount of fibers including in the feed
the above described are the main cause of prolapse if any deviation happened.

in our farm prolapse was the highest causes of mortality but after we change our Ca(Supplement with raw calcium carbonate in feeder) sources the problem was reduced then can you see your Ca source?

But bear in mind that the lameness was only happened in broiler after they feeding in the same feed with layer( for experiment only) then the broilers show lameness but not in layers, have any experiences happen related to ours.
