Commercial laying hens were infected with Salmonella typhimurium DT104 strain 16 alternatively via the crop (10(7) cfu per bird) or by an aerosol delivered directly to the beaks using a Collison nebuliser and Henderson apparatus (2 x 10(2) or 2 x 10(4) cfu per bird). Infection by both routes caused systemic infection and prolonged contamination of faeces. Contamination rates of eggs and muscle were much higher following the aerosol challenges despite the much lower doses given by this route… CONTINUE READING
