Abstract: The present communication deals with the study of prevalence of intestinal helminthic infection in desi poultry birds. The study was conducted during February 2014 to January 2015 from different farms in and around Darbhanga town. In all 315 birds were examined and average over all prevalence was found as 206 (65.39%) and with cestodes (20.22%), nematodes (30.16%) and mixed (13.01%), thus in an order of nematodes> cestodes> mixed ones. Among the cestodes Raillietina and Davainea infection and among nematodes Ascaridia and Heterakis were found common with prevalence as 24.13%, 4.44%, 28.89% and 7.93% respectively. Further, seasonal prevalence showed higher during summer (81.65%) followed by rainy (68.26%) and lowest during winter (45.09%). Thus the study indicated higher prevalence of helminthic infection particularly Raillietina (cestode) and Ascaridia (nematode) in desi poultry birds of the study area.
