Abstract

Intestinal content samples from four flocks of pheasant chicks experiencing diarrhea and increased mortality were evaluated using immune electron microscopy and genome electropherotyping techniques. Enteric viruses serologically and electropherotypically indistinguishable from turkey rotaviruses and turkey rotavirus-like viruses (RVLVs) were detected. Rotavirus-only infections, RVLV-only infections, and simultaneous rotavirus and RVLV infections were demonstrated in these flocks.
