There are 4 main categories of diseases in the Kuroiler breed.

  1. Diseases affecting the behaviour of birds.The farmer should ensure that his birds feed on all nutrients to prevent them turning into cannibals.Another way they can control it is by debeaking.
  2. Kuroiler birds are known as scavengers which means that they look for their own food.Therefore they may sometimes lack the proper nutrients which leads to cases such as having weak bones and a reduction in the laying of eggs.
  3. Infectious diseases are the most common type of diseases in birds as they are spread through bacteria,fungal or virus.
  4. Diseases spread by parasites are spread when a healthy bird comes into contact with an infected bird.
