Abstract Gastrointestinal tracts of 300 chickens from three villages of the Gharb region, Morocco, were examined for adult helminths during 2002-2005. Helminth species found were: Notocotylus gallinarum (prevalence 0.7\%), Hymenolepis carioca (3.7\%), Raillietina echinobothrida (5.7\%), Hymenolepis contaniana (7\%), Raillietina tretragona (9.3\%), Raillietina cesticillus (12\%), Capillaria obsignata (6\%), Subulura brumpti (15.3\%), Heterakis gallinarum (10\%), Cheilospirura hamulosa (2.7\%), Dispharynx nasuta (5.3\%), Ascaridia galli (9\%), and Tetrameres sp. (3.3\%). The prevalence and mean intensity of helminth infections did not differ significantly between male and female chickens.
