A survey to determine the nematode species in rural chickens reared extensively was carried out in six districts of Zimbabwe. Two-hundred-and-seventy chickens were randomly collected from the districts and processed for helminth recovery. One genus and 10 species were identified from the gastrointestinal tract but no parasites were found in the respiratory tract and eyes. Skrjabinocerca sp., Capillaria obsignata, Capillaria contorta and Trichostrongylus tenuis are new records in Zimbabwe. Allodapa brumpti and Tetrameres americana were the most common species with a prevalence of 64.8% and 64.1%, respectively.
