Species of chicken coccidiosis and its location
Chickens are susceptible to at least 7 species of Eimeria. The most common species are Eimeria tenella, which causes the caecal coccidiosis, E. necatrix & E. maxima, which causes mid intestinal coccidiosis, E. acervulina which causes anterior intestinal coccidiosis and E. brunetti which causes posterior intestinal or rectal coccidiosis. E. mitis and E. praecox are generally mildly pathogenic and commonly occurring as co-infection/mixed infection in with other species.
