Reovirus infection are infectious diseases and intensive poultry farming affects, mainly, broilers, evolving or as malabsorbtion syndrome or syndrome as arthritis, tenosynovitis. The investigations were made in order to determine seroprevalence of these infections in seven broiler farms west. Blood samples were taken from chickens aged 21 days (R1) and 37 days (R2). Specific antibodies were detected by ELISA (Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit using FlockChek ® Avian reovirus Antibody Test Kit , supplied by IDDEXX Laboratories , Inc. At the age of 21 days geometric mean titres have different values , limits ranging between 245 and 607 O.D. At the age of 37 days , the geometric mean of specific antibody titers were higher limits ranging between 89 and 773 O.D. The results obtained demonstrating the existence of seroconversion proces is the result of evolution reovirus infection in broiler farms investigated.
