runting and stunting syndrome has many causes which are poor brooding conditions, Viral diseases which cause enteric inflammation which cause poor absorption of feed .Stressing conditions also cause stunted growth. Biosecurity especially cleaning of fowl runs and reseting after each batch for 10 to 15 days will reduce this condition

Enteritis causes inflammation of epithelial cells causing the immune system to consume a lot of nutrients to deal with inflammation, reducing the amount of nutrients for muscle growth. A stressed gastrointestinal will cause stress that activates the immune system. This will lead to stunted growth and loss of weight and high mortality and costs in managing the condition.

High salt in the feed can promote loose droppings, so there is need to investigate and find out the cause. Feed contamination with molds or rancid feed can cause loose droppings besides bacterial, viral and other infections of the GI.

Weights and feed are very important. Underweight birds may produce eggs that big as a result of overfeeding leading to large eggs that cause prolapse. Early photo stimulation can cause that again. Manage your weights as well as the nutrition content of the feed, that is protein and energy, they have a big effect on prolapse problems.

When chicks are hatched they are clean from any bacterial, viral, protozoa and free of Co2 and ammonia. It is only when they are exposed to the environment, which is contaminated, that you see them developing problems of diseases, metabolic problems and nutritional problems. So it is important to hatch in a clean, disease-free hatchery, packed in clean boxes, transported to the farm in c ...
