Abstract :

In summer, birds undergo stress leading to immunosuppression and disease outbreaks causing economic losses. Heat stress has harmful impacts on poultry production and welfare. Proper summer management includes shed, water, feed, and health management to maintain the environmental temperature within the required range, ensure adequate clean and cool water supply, compensate for reduced feed intake, and prevent disease outbreaks through vaccination, effective coccidiosis programs, good biosecurity, and sanitation.
