Abstract
The study was conducted to determine the presence of Eschericial coli and Salmonella pathogens from different brand of commercial available poultry feeds in Minna metropolis. A total of 60 samples from three poultry feeds namely; Starter, finisher and layers were aseptically collected and analyzed using standard microbiological techniques. All samples analyzed were cultured on Nutrient agar media by spread plates techniques and subsequently on selective media for total bacterial count. Total viable count (TVC) of Salmonella and E.coli recorded in the feeds were as follows Starter 3.47cfu/g, Finisher 4.84 cfu/g and Layers 9.02 cfu/g. There was a significant (p>0.05) trend in the overall percentage distribution of Salmonella and E.coli contamination across the feeds category, with the higher distribution recorded in layers 100% and Finisher while, starter had (66.6%) distribution. The overall result of antibiotics susceptibility tests of Salmonella and E.coli revealed the sensitivity of (53.8%), and resistant of (46.1%) in E.coli while, Salmonella had (38.4 %) sensitivity and (61.5%) resistant to all antibiotics tested. Thus, all the poultry feeds were found to be contaminated with bacteria which may pose a public health risk to human. Therefore,the occurrence of Salmonella and E.coli in poultry feeds reinforces the need for effective control measures, hygiene in processing and handling of feeds

Key words: Poultry Feeds, Total viable count, contamination, Salmonella, E.coli
