During the period 1971 - 1973, 401 fowl specimens were examined bacteriologically. e. g. 93% from chicks and chickens and 7% from pigeons, canaries, pheasants e.t.c. Seventy five Salmonella strains were isolated (18,5%) and 47 were further serotyped (25 S. gallinarum, 9 S. pullorum, 12 S. typhi murium and 1 S. Saint-Paul).
