Intoxication due to Crotalaria retusa and C spectabilis in chickens and geese


, : Intoxication due to Crotalaria retusa and C spectabilis in chickens and geese. Veterinary and Human Toxicology 35(6): 539-539

Chickens (43 days old; mean body weight 650 g) were given seeds of C. retusa and C. spectabilis (0.7, 1.1, 2.3, 16 or 20 mg/kg by mouth); geese (45 days old; mean body weight 1.3 kg) were given seeds of C. retusa (6 g/kg). Clinical signs in treated birds at 72 h included inappetence, dyspnoea, muscular tremor associated with nervous incoordination, depression, bristling, torticollis and a tendency to huddle together.

In chickens and geese (43 and 45 days old, respectively) experimental intoxication due to Crotalaria retusa and C. spectabilis was carried out. That both legumes are highly toxic for poultry is concluded, being necessary to eliminate these plants...

First report from Cuba. As there is a possibility of intoxication of poultry with seeds of these plants in Cuba, fowls and geese were dosed experimentally. Clinical signs and PM lesions are described. Seeds of both plants were highly toxic for fowls and geese.
