Abstract/Context: Two experiments were conducted at Laureldale research farms. Hens were artificially infected with different doses of Ascaridia galli eggs. Impacts on health, immune response, productions were measured. Subsequently, hens were ranged on the contaminated ranges. The impacts of such naturally acquired infections were measured.
