The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of Lactobacilluscasei and Bifidobacterium sp. A total of 72 laying hens were randomly assigned to four groups of 18 laying hens each. The treatment consisted of: T0: control without infected by Eschericia coli; T1: infected by Eschericia coli; T2: non infected E.coli and 0.5% Lactobacillus casei+ 0.5% Bifidobacterium sp.; T3: infected E.coli and 0.5% Lactobacillus casei+ 0.5% Bifidobacterium sp. The research showed that significant difference (p<0.05) between treatment on leukocyte, erythrocyte, haematocrit, hemoglobin, monocytes and granulocyte. This study indicates that the use of combination Lactobacilluscasei and Bifidobacterium sp. can be used as probiotic against Eschericia coli infection
