The study was conducted aiming at the isolation and identification of Salmonella and Escherichia coli (E. coli) from different poultry farm in Padra Village, Gujarat, India. Drinking water samples were collected from feeding operation of two different poultry farms and were analysed for the presence of Salmonella spp. and Escherichia coli using microbiological analysis. The samples were analysed by culturing in different media such as nutrient broth (NB), nutrient Agar (NA), BGA (brilliant-green Agar), MCA (MacConkey), EMB (eosin methylene blue), and LuriaBertani media. Salmonella spp. and Escherichia coli were tested against 5 anti- microbial agents: Gentamicin, Streptomycin, Ampicillin, Penicillin, Chloramphenicol using the Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion method. The result of this research showed the presence of aerobic bacteria and also the resistant of bacteria to certain antibiotics in water samples. Strict hygienic practices and biosecurity measures should be instituted and maintained both at feed mills and poultry farms so as to eliminate contamination associated with poultry. The widespread occurrence of Salmonella spp. and E. coli in poultry feeds reinforces the need for effective control measures, hygiene in processing and handling of feeds.

Keywords: Salmonella spp., Escherichia coli, poultry farm, feeding operation, microbiological analysis
