INTRODUCTION Poultry are vulnerable to potentially pathogenic microorganisms such as Escherichia coli, Salmonella ssp., and Clostridium. Pathogenic microflora in the small intestine compete with the host for nutrients and also reduce the digestion of fat and fat-soluble vitamins due to deconjugating effects of bile acids (Engberg et al., 2000). This depresses growth performance and increases incidence of disease.
