A procedure is described for implanting simple plastic t-piece cannulae made from 1 ml disposable syringes in the terminal ileum of adult cockerels for routine use in digestibility trials. Problems encountered during and after surgery are discussed. Ten of the 15 birds cannulated survived more than nine months.
