Serum Antibody Levels against Infectious Bursal Disease Virus in Nigerian Village Chickens

By Didacus Chukwuemeka Eze* and Kodi Okonkwo Emmanuel Chukwudi Okwor


The serum antibody levels against infectious bursal disease (IBD) virus in unvaccinated village chickens (n=484) reared in and around Nsukka, Southeast Nigeria were studied using indirect hemagglutination (IHA) test. Result showed a high seroprevalence (88.4%). Therefore, there is need for government involvement in the control of this disease in village chickens through extension services and mass vaccination of poultry population
