Abstract:
A study was conducted to find out the common endoparasites that affect the Captive Pheasants. This study was carried out in captive pheasants reared at P.K.R Farms, Cavin Estate, Injambakam, Chennai. A total of 16 droppings (fecal samples) were collected in small containers filled with 10% formalin. The samples were thoroughly examined for the presence of various endoparasites by qualitative methods and quantitative method. The result revealed the presence of endoparasites such as Ascaridia sp. (12.50%), Strongyle (18.75%), Eimeria sp. (06.25%) and Ascarid sp. and Strongyle of mixed infections (06.25%). Based on this study, the major causes for endoparasitism were identified and discussed.
