The Gumboro disease poses a formidable challenge to poultry health, with the potential to devastate valuable breeding stock. This project delves into the insidious nature of Gumboro disease, which has led to the loss of a significant generation of prized chickens. Notably, male chickens seem to exhibit higher mortality rates compared to females, a gender-specific susceptibility that has not been extensively explored.

This research can be conducted using qualitative/quantitative/mixed research methods, or involving a research stay at ET VOICI chicken farm in Benin, which will be able to provide local supervision, support in finding local accommodation, shared office, contacts with representatives of the University of Parakou etc.
