Abstract

RECENTLY, two freshly isolated strains of Salmonella pullorum which failed to grow on either deoxycholatecitrate agar or MacConkey agar were examined. One had been cultured from the kidney of a chicken suffering from nephritis and the other from a typical outbreak of pullorum disease in young chicks; there was no obvious epidemiological relationship between these two strains.
