Abstract:

Domestic birds have a significant role in social and national economic conditions all over the world. In domestic birds, parasitic infections are essential due to their adaptability to various environmental situations and their relationship with the human community. This study was conducted to determine the prevalence of gastrointestinal helminths endoparasites in domestic Duck (Anas platyrhynchos domesticus), and two sub-species of Chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus), which are local domestic chicken and farmed chicken, mainly broilers. Among ten pigeons, six were found positive for cestode parasites, and no nematode parasites were found. Among ten ducks, two were found to be positive for cestode and one for nematode parasites. Among twenty chickens (tens layers chickens, tens broilers chickens), nine out of ten-layer chickens were found positive for cestode parasites, and five out of ten were found positive for nematode parasites. Meanwhile, farmed broiler chickens had no parasites, and neither cestode nor nematode was found during examination. However, a comparative study on the parasitic infestation of ducksand chickens reveals that local domestic chickens were more severely infected than broiler chickens and ducks.
