Behira Belkacem and Kihal Mebrouk
 
Abstract: The lactobacilli of the digestive tract poultry are considered as a reservoir of genes for resistance to antibiotics. Lactobacilli colonizing the crop and intestines of broilers play an important role in maintaining the balance of the health of the animal. The current trend that aims to spread the use of lactobacilli as a probiotic in poultry is confronted by abuse as curative despite regulations and guidelines that prohibit the routine use of antibiotics for the treatment of microbial infections poultry. The study is conducted on the lactobacilli flora of broiler chickens in Western Algeria. Ten isolates from the crop and intestines broiler. Antimicrobial sensitivity test to ten different types of antibiotic were evaluated using the disc diffusion method. Inhibition zone diameter was measured of resistance or susceptibility.
