About Disease

Egg Drop Syndrome (EDS 76) virus is caused by duck adenovirus A (adenovirus group III) and was first described in laying hens in 1976. The adenovirus is a member of the genus Atadenovirus and family Adenoviridae. EDS 76 affects chickens and quail. Ducks and geese seem to be natural hosts of the virus. The virus is transmitted vertically by eggs. Droppings also contain the virus that can be horizontally transmitted by the oral route. Infected wild birds can be a contamination source for poultry.

The disease is characterized by drops in egg production and increased incidence of abnormal eggs. Birds remain generally healthy. Egg production is usually reduced by from 10% to 40%. The fall in production can be rapid, and the drop in egg production usually lasts from 4 to 10 weeks.  The first sign is loss of shell pigments. This loss of color is followed by thin, soft, rough and granular shell and shell-less eggs.
