Industry started bivlent vaccine (serotype-2 MD vaccines combined with HVT) which gave good protection till early 1990s - then very virulent plus (vv+) MD emerged.

During production period ionophores are not recommended in layer birds, As they may produce negative effect on egg production and egg size. However the best way was vaccination of birds against coccidiosis on first three days of age. I have seen that it is a general problem in layer birds during 16weeks to 26 weeks of age. Because here we are providing layer ration to the birds with almost 4% ...
