Remarks
-Recommended to de-beak the birds in week 12 or earlier if signs of pecking start to appear
-De-worm the birds in week 9 and 15 in drinking water. Repeat every 6 to 8 weeks.
-Avoid using antibiotics or their combinations on vaccination days. Only multivitamins are recommended to be given.
-The above vaccination program can be adjusted depending on the field conditions and only after consultation with a qualified and competent personnel (Veterinarian or poultry specialist) who is well aware of the area disease situation.
Vaccination does not guarantee absolute protection of birds against diseases. It is only one of the pillars to good poultry health if combined with balanced nutrition, bio security and good management (stock man ship) on the farm.
