Endoparasitism is among important causes of reduced productivity of indigenous chickens. A seven months old Aseel chicken was presented for post-mortem examination. At necropsy, markedly dilated caecum with numerous adult nematodes of Heterakis sp. was noticed. Faecal examination revealed the presence of two different types of eggs, viz., Heterakis species and Capillaria species eggs. Concurrent Heterakis gallinarum and Capillaria sp. infection in Aseel chicken, treatment and outcome is reported.
