A total of 632 faecal samples were collected from Tal-Chhapar Sanctuary of Rajasthan during summer, rainy and winter season from November 2018 to September 2019 and examined qualitatively by faecal floatation for Eimeria sp. oocysts and quantitatively by modified McMaster egg counting technique. Coprological analysis of samples revealed an overall prevalence of 22.78% for Eimeria sp. Quantitative analysis revealed oocyst per gram (OPG) of faeces ranging from 300-2300 with an average of 704.35 ± 107.72.Seasonal study revealed highest infection in rainy season (34.98%) followed by winter (19.80%) and summer season (12.56%). Statistical analysis using multivariate binary logistic regression model revealed highly significant difference (P<0.01)in the prevalence of Eimeria sp. infection among different seasons.
