        Dear Dr Sab, addition of organic acids especially well formulated combo @ 3-5kg/MT of feed plus 2.5gm/lt of water continuously will control salmonella. Salmonella are called microscopic animals once you add org acids or antibiotics it will go intracellular and waiting for right time to strike, hence addition of org acids both in feed and water continuously will keep them away as it go resistance to antibiotics

    maybe bacterial is the earliest problem. Need to check again if there are still many chickens with underweight body weight. Not easy to overcome ompalitis, especially if the chicken has been aged 10 days, too late. Nephritis? many causes for this kidney condition. to diagnose it needs other symptom data.
