Ethylene glycol (EG) toxicosis was diagnosed on postmortem examination in a white leghorn chicken. The clinical signs were sudden onset of depression, ataxia, convulsions and death. Natural cases of EG toxicosis have not been reported in chickens. This report highlights the importance of including EG toxicosis on differential diagnoses lists for sudden onset of depression, ataxia and death in chickens.
