Abstract:
Experiment was carried out to assess the efficacy of ethanolic, hydroethanolic and aqueous extract of Butea monosperma leaves on Ascaridia galli infection in indigeneous birds. A total of sixty chicks were randomly selected that were divided into three groups twelve groups with 6 birds in each group. The birds were then artificially infected with Ascaridia galli @ 1000 eggs/bird. Ethanolic extract of Butea monosperma was orally fed to Group I, II, and III at 100, 500 and 1000 mg/kg body weight, hydroethanolic extract of Butea monosperma was orally fed to Group IV, V, and VI at 100, 500 and 1000 mg/kg body weight and aqueous extract of Butea monosperma was orally fed to Group VII, VIII, and IX at 100, 500 and 1000 mg/kg body weight respectively while Positive control group was left untreated that served as control. A standard Piperazine group was also maintained. The fecal egg count (FEC) was conducted on weekly basis. The pre-treatment values of FEC in all the groups were found negative from day 0 to 44 after artificially inducing infection. The FEC post treatment values of all the groups were significantly (p<0.05) decreased as compared to the control. It was concluded that Butea monosperma was effective in controlling the Ascaridia galli infection in chicken.
