The present experiment was conducted for 35 days, aimed to investigate the susceptibility of commercial Broiler and Vanraja chicken to Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovars Gallinarum infection with supplementation garlic. A total of 160 (80 vanraja and 80 broiler), day old chicks were procured from private local hatcheries (Srinagar). 20 birds each of both vanaraja and broiler were put into four cages and labelled as Control, Control Garlic, Infected and Infected Supplemented with Garlic. Infection was given to infected and infected supplemented with garlic given I/P with 0.2 ml suspension Salmonella gallinarum containing 2.08×109 CFU. Clinical signs along with the mortality pattern was recorded in both vanraja and broiler chickens in all the four groups. Daily observations were made in all the four groups in both vanraja and broiler chickens. There was no clinical signs and mortality observed in both control and garlic control group. There was significant incresase in mortality in broiler infected with S. gallinarum than in vanraja infected group, while as mortality was more in infection supplemented with garlic in broiler birds than in vanraja supplemented with garlic. The study concluded that garlic could be effectively used in both broilers and vanraja feeding to replace antibiotic as a growth promoter.
