Experimental infections of the domestic fowl with a variant of Eimeria praecox from the Ceylon jungle fowl



Experimental infections of the domestic fowl with a variant of Eimeria praecox from the Ceylon jungle fowl



Parasitology 69(1): 1-9



A species of Eimeria from the Ceylon jungle fowl (Gallus lafayetti), at first thought to be a new species of Eimeria, has been identified as a strain of E. praecox. Oocysts of this jungle fowl strain were slightly larger than those of E. praecox, being 23.2X19.9 mu m, but the endogenous stages were similar. The strain reproduced poorly in the domestic fowl but oocyst production was improved by treating the chickens with betamethasone.
