Abstract Three hundred and fifty one chickens purchased from the Dschang animal market were examined for gastro-intestinal helminths. Ten species were found with the following prevalences: Heterakis brevispiculum (59.3\%), Ascaridia galli (51.6\%), Hymenolepis carioca (48.4\%), Dispharynx spiralis (20.8\%), Tetrameres americana (17.1\%), Amoebotaenia cuneata (15.1\%), Raillietina tetragona (14.5\%), Syngamus trachea (13.7\%), Hymenolepis cantaniana (5.7\%) and Capillaria contorta (2.0\%). Infections were predominantly mixed (93.5\%). The infection rates were not influenced by host sex except for A. galli which was more prevalent in cocks. Older chickens showed some resistance to A. cuneata and S. trachea. Parasite prevalence and/or worm burdens were generally higher during the rainy season (April to October).
