Abstract

The current study included examination of 181 birds (vobra strain), the total infection rate was 30.55 % (55 bird), the infection rate according to months Feb. marc. Apr. and jun. were (40 %, 32.5%, 29.16%, 21.27% Respectively). The higher infection rate was 40% for age less than (10 week) while the lower infection rate was 20% for age (˃20 week). The infection intensity divided to three group (light, medium, heavy), and the results shows that 65.45% was light infection and 7.27%, 27. 27 % were medium and heavy infection Respectively. The infected birds showed symptoms of wasting, lethargy, tachycardia and intestinal inflammation.
