Due to the residual effect of antibiotics and the need to eradicate its usage in poultry industry. A 98-days experiment was carried out to determine the efficacy of aqueous extract of fruits of Lagenaria breviflora Robert on faecal samples of birds of the pullet birds. Ninety (90) two-weeks old pullet birds were divided into two treatments (100 and 150g of Lagenaria breviflora per litre of water) and further subdivided into three replicates of 15 birds each. Data collected on faecal analysis (at weeks 8 and 16) were subjected to independent sample T-test. The analyzed result revealed a significant (p<0.01) decrease in the oocyst per gram, egg worm count and and Total bacteria egg count at weeks 8 and 16 respectively. However, higher and best count reduction in oocyst, egg worm and likewise the Total bacterial count was obtained in 150g group compared to the 100g group. Therefore an alternative to conventional drugs, aqueous extract of the fruit of Lagenaria breviflora Robert can be used at the rate of 150g per litre of water.
