The present study was conducted to determine the occurrence of two viral and one bacterial disease in four Tahsils of Khairpur District during June 2014-June 2015. The study was conduct on the clinical signs, symptoms and postmortem examination. The data were collected randomly; five farms were selected from Khairpur District. The results shows high mortality rate in all Tahsils were observed (1.17%) due to IBD from all Tahsils followed by ND (1.13%) as, highest number of birds affected (1.84%) due to IBD and ND shows (1.77%) while birds survived (0.67%), (0.63%) from IBD and ND. While bacterial disease Coryza shows (2.40%), (1.54%), (0.85%) birds affected, died and survived respectively in all Tahsils during the study period. The total number of birds affected due to IBD are 685 followed by N.D 674 and while bacterial Coryza showed 861 and total number of birds survived to IBD are 249 followed by ND 242 and while Infectious Coryza 307 from the study areas.
