2.Feces handling

Usually, coccidia oocysts are discharged with manure and need 1-3 days to develop into infective spore oocysts under certain conditions. Therefore, manure in chicken farms should be cleaned and removed on the same day and transported to a distant place for fermentation treatment, using the heat and ammonia produced by fermentation to kill oocysts and prevent feed and drinking water from being contaminated.


Chicks should use medication to prevent coccidiosis after 2 weeks of susceptible age, especially during the susceptible stage and epidemic season.
