The invention relates to the field of veterinary medicine and can be recommended for use in the poultry industry to improve the efficiency of fertilization birds.

The proposed invention is directed to the use of complex homeopathic preparation "EVL-Se COMPOSITION" solution to improve the efficiency of fertilization birds in the industrial conditions of the herd.

This object is achieved in that in the method "EVL-Se COMPOSITION solution, which is injected laying hens inside the group by way of a free drink with water once a day for 10 days in a dose of 0.02 ml per head.

A member of the drug "EVL-Se COMPOSITION solution comprised of ten components of active substances, each of which has wide application in homoeopathic practice: Arsenicum album (D10), Lycopodium (D7), Phosphorus (D29), Podophyllum (D7), Veratrum album (D7), Colocyntis (D7), Thja occidentalis (D7), Vincetoxicum (D3), Echinacea purpurea (D3), Selenium Se (D5) [1-2].

"EVL-Se COMPOSITION solution for application to animals (hereinafter referred to as the product) is produced according to the process regulations, approved in a prescribed manner [3].

Indications for use, the individual components of the formulation is:

Arsenicum album (White arsenic) - shown with gastroenteritis, kidney disease with albuminuria and hemoglobinuria, inflammatory processes of any the of ENISA and localization, chronic skin diseases;

Lycopodium - functional and dystrophic-degenerative liver disease, liver and bile ducts combined with loss of appetite, indigestion, disorders of protein metabolism, chronic skin disease;

Phosphorus - fatty degeneration of the liver, kidneys, pancreatitis, gastritis, gastroenteritis, drainage means parenchyma of the liver, kidneys, lungs, heart, slowing the healing process;

Podophyllum (novelistic thyroid) in homeopathy is mainly used for diseases of the digestive tract and liver.

Veratrum album (white Hellebore) in veterinary practice tincture of white hellebore has wide application as strong ruminative tool in atony of the rumen for initiation of its activities.

Colocyntis (bitter gourd) - an essential drug in the treatment of patients suffering from acute, spasmodic tearing pain that can be felt in the stomach, liver, intestine, kidney, female reproductive organs, spine, extremities. Eliminates sudden pain, characteristic for intestinal colic, promotes the resolution of gastroenteritis, eliminates diarrhea.

Thja occidentalis contains glycoside thujone, fenchone, Sabine, borneol, TUEV and formic acid, piripiri, pinene. In folk medicine thuja runaways apply when the stones liver and the next, at illnesses of a liver and kidneys, and bladder. Thuja increases the reactivity chronically diseased organism;

Vincetoxicum (lactofen drug) - it contains the glycoside vincetoxicum. In folk medicine Cynanchum vincetoxicum is used in diseases of the kidney with ascites. In homeopathy Vincetoxicum used in acute fevers, to stimulate the immune system in viral diseases;

Echinacea purpurea is used in severe septic infections. Ehinakozid active against Streptococcus and Staphylococcus;

Selenium-Se - given the evidence of the toxic effects of selenium, the selenium intake is shown in a number of diseases in which selenium has not yet been used in homeopathy, as with the defeat of joints with effusion in them, in exudative pleural effusion and ascites, pouchenii neuromuscular excitability with cramps in the extremities.

Therefore, homeopathic medicine "EVL-Se COMPOSITION solution acts as a tool that has hepatoprotective, antispasmodic properties and nonspecific immunomodulating effect, restores immunological reactivity, activates a number of indicators of natural and nonspecific resistance of the organism of animals, as well as anti-inflammatory, regulates the motility of the gastro-kicheche the tract with gastroenteritis.

The method is as follows.

Laying hens were injected homeopathic drug "EVL-Se COMPOSITION oral solution at a dose of 0.02 ml per head, by a free drink with water once a day for 10-20 days.

The mechanism of combined effect of the claimed homeopathic remedy based on its biological role EVL-Se COMPOSITION", as homeopathic product directs the complex of natural components in the processes of self-regulation, stimulating the body to cure itself that causes the body not only to a pronounced therapeutic effect, but also is an effective means of prevention.

The essence of the method is illustrated by examples.

Example 1. The objective of the research was to study the influence of a complex homeopathic preparation "EVL - Se COMPOSITION" solution to increase the efficiency of fertilization of egg-laying hens.

The research was conducted in the conditions of JSC "Kostroma poultry" Kostroma region Kostroma region on the birds breed Lohman brown, cross Hisexs brown at the age of 240 days, in this regard, we carried out tests to determine effect of "EVL-Se COMPOSITION solution on fertilization chickens.

Presumably complex homeopathic preparation has immunomodulatory effects. According to the degree of toxic effect on an organism of warm-blooded W the animal drug belongs to hazard substances (hazard class 4 according to GOST 12.1.007-76), does not have a locally irritating and sensitizing effect.

"EVL-Se COMPOSITION solution was applied by means of a free drink of water laying hens. The contents of chickens comply with all appropriate parameters.

The drug is laying hens was given in a dose of 0.02 ml per head, by a free drink with water once a day for 10 days. About the effectiveness of the drug was tried on Ovasapyan and opening of the eggs.

In the experimental group was founded 816 eggs obtained from hens who were tear "EVL-Se COMPOSITION solution in the control group - 22549 eggs, the drug the bird didn't ask.

It is established that as a result of incubation (table 1) in the control group the number of unfertilized eggs was in the amount of 1387 pieces (6,15%), eggs with dead embryos - 2677 pieces (11.87 per cent), hatchability was 87.4 per cent, the output of Moltke - 82,4%.

Table 1

Conclusion Moltke (%)82,4is 83.882,1
Conclusion on sex, hens/cocks9288/9200342/3459630/9545

In the experimental group relative to the control group the number of unfertilized eggs made up 5.27%, eggs with dead embryos - 10,17%, hatchability was higher and reached 88,9%, the output of Moltke - 83.8 per cent (table 1).

Waste classification incubation showed (table 2)that in the control group blood rings more and amounted to 3.09%, against 2,70% in the experimental group, the frozen - 8,13% against 4,66%, sacklike - 0,51% against 2,82%, but weak in controlling the group amounted to 0.13%for whereas in the experimental group weak not found.

Table 2

amount23365720 (is 3.08%)1872 (8,0%)138 (0,6%)30

Consequently, the application of "EVL-Se COMPOSITION solution laying hens is possible to reduce the number of unfertilized eggs, embryonic mortality, and the reduction cf the di waste incubation of eggs with blood rings, "frozen" and no weak evidence of stimulation of water-mineral and protein metabolism.

Thus, the use of "EVL-Se COMPOSITION solution laying hens can improve the hatchability of eggs by 1.5%, the output of Moltke 1.4%.

Example 2. The objective of the research was to study the influence of a complex homeopathic preparation "EVL-Se COMPOSITION" solution to improve efficiency of chick.

The research was conducted in the conditions of LLC "Livorno Rus Kovrov, Vladimir region during October-December 2007 hens-hens parent flock breed hi-Line cross-98 at the age of 240 days.

For investigation in case No. 47 were formed 2 groups of laying hens breed hi-Line cross-98 at the age of 240 days: experimental and control groups of 15 thousand animals each. Conditions and feeding were the same, the chick was 76%.

Laying hens of the experimental group drug "EVL-SE COMPOSITION was applied by a method of feeding water at a dose of 0.02 ml on the head once a day for 10 days. In the control group, the drug was not used. The observation period was one month after the end giving the drug "EVL - Se COMPOSITION solution.

The results of the experiment showed that use of the drug "EVL-Se COMPOSITION solution under the above scheme allows yet in the experimental group to increase by 8% chick, and increase their viability.

Based on these data it is possible to recommend farms complex homeopathic preparation "EVL - Se COMPOSITION" solution to increase output and improve the viability of chickens.

The novelty of the claimed method is to use a homeopathic remedy "EVL-Se COMPOSITION solution in poultry by free feeding laying hens with water in a dose of 0.02 ml once daily for 10 days with the purpose of increasing the efficiency of fertilization.

The uncertainty of the proposed scheme, which improves the efficiency of fertilization of egg-laying hens, to increase the output chickens, does not cause side effects, but also increases their viability, demonstrates compliance of the claimed technical solution the criterion of "inventive step".

Held in the scientific experience of the study confirmed the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method.

Thus, the use of homeopathic medicines "EVL-Se COMPOSITION solution laying hens inside group by way drink water contributes to the efficiency of fertilization, as well as to increase output and improve the viability of chickens.
