Summary: We will researching the effect of thermal stress on the immune response and productivity of all categories of chickens. Considering the fact that the immune response and productivity of chickens depends on the lenght and intensity of stress the experiment will include both acute and chronic thermal stress. A vaccination according to the valid specific immune prevention program will be carried out during the experiment and the immune response and productivity results will be monitored constantly. Examinations of the food and controling the health of the chickens will eliminate unwelcome effects of some harmful factors to the chickens organisms.

Keywords: hen,heat stress,immune response,production

Research goals: The aim of the research is to establish the effect of acute and chronic thermal stress on the immune response towards the applied vaccine and the productivity of chickens and laying hens. The results will bring more light to solving the problem of poorer immune responses in relation to the difference in the origin of chickens and their production purpose, and the possible changes in the specific immune prevention program in relation to the application of vaccine. In addition we expect to establish the degree to which the productivity of chickens and laying hens is reduced under the given conditions.
