[Several cases of nitrite poisoning in broiler breeding hens].

Abstract

Because of insufficient ventilation during winter, water condensation associated with a high concentration of ammonia (70-100 ppm) in the air, occurred on several breeding farms. The ammonia became bound to the condensation water and was converted into nitrites (6000-16000 mg/l) and nitrates (1630-1700 mg/l). Ingestion by the birds resulted in acute death… (More)
