The incidence of aflatoxicosis was highest (27.59%) followed by nutritional deficiency (12.40%), infectious bursal disease (11.80%), chronic respiratory disease (8.11%) newcastle disease (7.50%) salmonellosis (5.56%) colibacillosis (4.42%), fowl cholera (3.08%) were found. 5.32% cases remain undiagnosed due to lack of diagnostic facilities or autolysis of the bird.
