The present work was conducted to determine the prevalence of rotavirus infection among poultry birds having diarrhoea. A total of 143 faecal samples were collected from different parts of Kerala and screened for the presence of rotavirus using RNA polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (RNA-PAGE). Out of 143 samples, 5 (3.49%) were found to be positive in RNA PAGE with a migration pattern 4:2:3:2 of a mammalian-like electropherogroup A rotavirus. The study records the first evidence of rota virus detection from avian species in Kerala.
