Air sac disease

Airsac disease also called airsacculitis is the inflammation of the air sacs in chicken.

This disease first appears in the form of poor laying and a weak chicken. As it progresses, you will notice watery eyes coughing, sneezing, breathing distress, swollen joints, leading to death.

There is a vaccine against this chicken disease but should a chicken show signs it can be treated with an antibiotic

The disease can be picked up from other birds (even wild birds) and it can be transferred from a hen that has it to her chick through the egg.

As a precaution, keep an eye out for any of these symptoms so it can be treated quickly and effectively.
