Mycoplasma in poultry is not a new disease. There is mention in the old books of similar symptoms from about years ago but it has generally been called roup or a common cold. Treatment tended to be by culling only. The disease acquired the name mycoplasma once the causative organism had been discovered. Mainly the respiratory system in poultry is affected and the disease may be becoming more common, spreading with increased travelling of stock, more people keeping chickens and mixing them from different sources. The incubation period before clinical signs appear can be as little as a few days - it is very infectious. It appears to thrive in the bird when other pathogens are present, such as E.

Most beginners do not know how to treat their birds after they get sick, they cannot properly diagnose a case. There are many diseases that affect poultry today that some people have never heard of, is it any wonder they can't prevent and cure disease? Most people think that all diarrhoea is cholera and that all birds that have a dis charge from the eyes and nostrils have roup hence they treat for these diseases and their birds die or do not im prove, otherwise if they could diagnose the case and give the bird the proper treatment and care they would be able to cure the bird. In order to cure and prevent disease you must know the nature of it and then you can care for them in an intelligent manner. I believe this little book will give you all the information you will ever want in regard to the different diseases known to affect poultry. Company number
