I run a smallscale poultry in my firm of about a 1000 birds.I had a smooth experience fro day old till start of lay at 19 weeks.I always had alot of joy seeing the Brown Chickens healthy and active.My chickens are currently in their 37th week and in their 3rd month of lay but are currently experiencing massive drop in production for reasons I can not precisely state.Kindly read through and figure what might be wrong.

Three weeks ago,the Vet based on some chocollate droppings noticed in the pen from some chickens demanded that we give them Anityteledox,Virucidal and Vitamin to check the Cocci for 5days.The following week it was time for their monthly Lasota Vaccine but he suggested the chicks should be dewormed first so it is,the next day they were given Lasota as is usual.

The Morning next day,my flocks were a bit dull and flocking together and that day the unexpected happen! Egg Drop from about 22 crates to about 13!!.Noticing this,we introduced Vitamins to their drinking water to checkmate the cummulated stress but this is the 11th day and the drop has been occurring phenominally;yesterday,we couldn't even pick 9 crates.Funny enough,the chicks are very activ and healthy. Deen(Kano,Ng)
