Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) Deficiency

By Miller Hatcheries


Known as Curly Toe Disease

Clinical signs

Young chicks, as early as 1-week-old, exhibit curling of the toes, inability to walk and sometimes diarrhoea.

Treatment and Control

Administering vitamin B preparations brings a rapid cure. Only in advanced cases will birds be dehydrated and emaciated, requiring further treatment.

It is important to ensure adequate vitamin B levels not only in starter and grower diets, but also in the diet of parent breeders.
