Although there may be some differences between poultry management systems regarding the degree of risk from coccidia, it is generally accepted that the disease may be found in most systems, both indoor and outdoor. The life-cycle is rapid, approximately days, and involves massive multiplication from ingestion of a single infective oocyst. Both infected and recovered birds shed oocysts. Sporulated oocysts have the ability to survive outside the host for very long periods. Sporulation can continue when temperatures increase, although prolonged periods at low temperatures can destroy the viability of the oocytes. This may be an important factor for outdoor poultry systems.
