Abstract

The study was conducted to ascertain the prevalence of coccidiosis in Sonali birds in Sirajgonj district of Bangladesh during the year 2015–2016. Diagnosis was made on the basis of history, clinical and post mortem findings. A total of 660 samples (sick and dead birds) were examined where 234 (35.45%) samples were found positive for coccidiosis. The highest prevalence percentage was found in July (53.33%) and the lowest percentage was found in January (16.67%). Birds aged 5 to 6 weeks showed more prevalence percentage (47.50 %), whereas older birds (> 16 weeks) found less susceptible (10%) to coccidiosis. Coccidiosis was slightly more prevalent in female (37.70%) than male (32.22%).
