Abstract

Forty-two visibly ill or dead pen-raised Indian red junglefowl were examined for parasites and diseases. The following disease conditions and parasites were identified; VIRUS(?)—visceral tumors; FUNGUS—Candida albicans; PROTOZOA — Eimeria acervulina, E. maxima, E. mivati, E. tenella, Histomonas meleagridis; CESTODA — Raillientina tetragona; NEMATODA — Ascaridia galli, Capillaria obsignata, Heterakis gallinarum; Filiariidea; ACARINA (mites) — Megninia sp. Coccidiosis was the most important problem. Junglefowl appear to be susceptible to most diseases and parasites of domestic chickens.
