To develop an audio signal processing algorithm

that detects rales (gurgling noises that are a distinct symptom

of common respiratory diseases in poultry). To derive features
from the audio by calculating mel frequency cepstral coefficients
(MFCCs), clustering the MFCC vectors, and examining the
distribution of cluster indices over a window of time. The
features are classified with a C4.5 decision tree.
we need to create database for different types of chicken sound which is infected with the
disease and and chicken sound without the infection of disease.
Algorithms such as this
could be used to continuously monitor chickens in commercial
poultry farms, providing an early warning system that could
significantly reduce the costs incurred from disease.
