Coccidiosis is a dangerous disease in chickens. Moultry rate in chickens affected by this disease is around 50-80 per cent and 100 per cent if not treated properly. That is, for chickens, coccidiosis is an important disease from the economic point of view, which has almost the same effect in the whole world. The importance of Coccidiosis disease can also be gauged from this,That upon the arrival of this disease in the poultry farm, the avalanche aviaries become empty. That is, it is difficult to save the chickens from death and the hens have to face heavy financial losses. The disease is caused by various species of micro-parasites (protozoa) in chickens called Aimeria. Chickens raised by putting husk or laying on the ground are more affected by this disease. Apathy towards eating in chickens suffering from this disease, lack of body water,Symptoms of bloody diarrhea, thin diarrhea in some people, being dull in one place, weakness and becoming very sensitive to other diseases are seen (Figure 1). In this disease, the hens of the chickens suffer the most, due to which all other symptoms of the disease are seen. Therefore, this disease can be divided into two parts depending on the affected parts of the intestine, which are called Kachidiosis of large and small intestine respectively.
