Avian mycoplasmosis is one of the most prevalent problem of poultry industry leading to heavy economic losses. Out of the various identified species of Mycoplasma, Mycoplasma gallisepticum is the principle causative agent of Chronic Respiratory disease (CRD). A variety of factors are responsible for the heavy death rates, including bird handling, age of flock, ventilation facilties, location of the farm, vaccination status of the birds, transportation, various environmental factors. CRD can be found in association with other infections like avian influenza, colibacillosis, New castle disease and infectious bronchits further causing complications.  A significant difference was observed in the infection by Mycoplasma gallisepticumin birds of different age group (p=0.004).  The infection appeared in an increasing order being highest in >21 days old (43.75%) and lowest in birds of 0-7 days age (10.39%).
