Abstract: Poultry rearing is one of the most appropriate income generating activities for rural women especially for landless and marginal farmers. The production of backyard poultry under Semi scavenging system is found suitable to the villagers as additional source of income and nutrient supplement. Backyard poultry is popular among rural people. However, the poultry production is hindered by many problems among which infectious diseases are most important. In fact the indigenous chickens of Bangladesh are parasitized by various parasites. Very few studies have been undertaken so far to determine the prevalence of gastrointestinal helminth infection in indigenous chickens in various regions. This paper describes the prevalence of gastrointestinal helminths infection in poultry.
