Febantel given at dosage levels of 0.25, 0.50 and 1.00 g per bird reduced Ascaridia galli eggs in fecal samples of broiler chickens by 61.4, 94.07 and 100%, respectively, and adult A. galli by 33.98, 81.11 and 100%, respectively. Statistical analysis indicated that 1.00 g Febantel per bird was the most effective in reducing coprological egg output and adult parasites.
