The oocysts of the Coccidia are known to be fairly resistant to chemical disinfectants in general, but relatively susceptible to heat (Chang, 1937). The following investigation was carried out in an attempt to evaluate the combined effects of temperature and pH upon the exogenous development of oocysts of Eimeria tenella and Eimeria acervulina.
