You always has to check those factors which are conducive to any virus to become capable of reproductio ...

A very informative article with some sound advices. It is also clear from the article that in-ovo inoculation of some vaccines are more beneficial than conventional routes.

Very thorough, informative and interesting paper about mycotoxin in day old chicks, though the research is limited to one region but we could learn a lot from the data and use this research for benefit. Well done, Dr. Stephen.
