Heat stress impairs performance and induces intestinal inflammation in broiler chickens infected with Salmonella Enteritidis.

Abstract

Stressful situations reduce the welfare, production indices and immune status of chickens. Salmonella spp. are a major zoonotic pathogens that annually cause over 1 billion infections worldwide. We therefore designed the current experiment to analyse the effects of 31±1°C heat stress (HS) (from 35 to 41 days) on performance parameters, Salmonella invasion… (More)
