1. The aim was determination of the rate of adaptation of the respiratory and defence functions of the blood and bone marrow of quail chicks. 2. In the early post-hatching period, enhanced haemoglobin synthesis is the mechanism adapting the bird to the rich oxygen conditions beyond the egg. 3. In 2-week-old chicks, the increased respiratory function of the blood is associated with a parallel rise of the erythrocyte count and haemoglobin content. 4. The defence mechanisms of the chick in the… Expand
Normal haematopoiesis cellular components and M/E ratio in the bone marrow of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica)
TLDR
The results indicated that the development and formation of blood cells in the bone marrow of quils were similar to other birds, whereas the morphology of the cells was similar to chickens and ducks. Expand
Erythropoietic bone marrow in the pigeon: Development of its distribution and volume during growth and pneumatization of bones
TLDR
The characteristic pattern of bone marrow distribution in adult pigeons, which shows hemopoietic bone marrow in ulna, radius, femur, tibiotarsus, scapula, furcula, and the caudal vertebrae, is generated. Expand
Heterophilic leucocytosis and granulocytic hyperplasia associated with infection in a cockatoo
TLDR
A female adult lesser sulphur-crested cockatoo (Cacatua sulphurea) presented with a traumatic foot lesion that was surgically debrided and showed the ability of a psittacine bird to mount a marked heterophilic leucocytosis. Expand
Simulium vittatum (Diptera: Simuliidae) and Lutzomyia longipalpis (Diptera: Psychodidae) Salivary Gland Hyaluronidase Activity
TLDR
Results indicate that hematophagous pool-feeding insects may secrete this enzyme to help the spread of salivary antihemostatic agents in the vicinity of the feeding lesion, and perhaps to increase the size of thefeeding lesion itself. Expand

Hematology of neonatal Japanese quail.
TLDR
The hematologic development of Japanese quail was studied as a function of time through the first 49 hr post-hatching, indicating that the state of theHematologic system in quail is highly dependent on the stage of post-embryonic maturation. Expand
Variations in the red blood cell picture during growth of goslings and chickens.
TLDR
It seems probable that the blood of goslings has a smaller oxygen carrying capability that that of the chicken and this might be reflected with their slower metabolic rate per body weight unit. Expand
Hematology of Coturnix from Birth to Maturity
TLDR
The relatively short span from birth to maturity in Coturnix provides a useful experimental tool with which to study the effect of age, nutrition, disease and environment upon cellular and plasmal constituents. Expand
The packed cell volume and differential leucocyte count of Bobwhite quail (Colinus virginianus).
TLDR
The packed cell volume and differential leucocyte count of Bobwhite quail from 15 hours post-hatching to 50 weeks of age is described. Expand
The Blood Cells of the Turkey
TLDR
In turkeys sampled from hatching to maturity, the erythrocyte counts fell over the first 2 weeks and then remained steady, and in adult birds under field conditions the mean count was 37,000/c.mm. Expand
STUDIES OF TOTAL ERYTHROCYTE AND LEUCOCYTE COUNTS OF FOWLS: III. VARIATION IN NUMBER OF BLOOD CELLS OF NORMAL FOWL
TLDR
The authors made total erythrocyte and leucocyte counts of 100 apparently healthy and vigorous single-comb White Leghorn hens and found that with few exceptions the birds were singularly free from intestinal parasites. Expand
Influence of dietary intake of malathion on the haematology and plasma electrolytes in chickens.
TLDR
The possible pharmacodynamic for the increase in plasma level of sodium has been explained due to the stimulation of aldosterone secretion as a result of reduction in cardiac output produced by anticholinesterase (malathion) agents. Expand
The effect of diet and breed upon the oxygen requirements of the domestic fowl during the first fortnight of post-embryonic life.
TLDR
It was found that oxygen uptake rose initially and that it became constant at a similar age for the three breeds of fowl and it is suggested that it may be possible to predict growth rate from rate of oxygen uptake at the onset of the period of constant metabolism. Expand
Influence of Dietary Intake of Certain Insecticides on the Hæmoglobin and Erythrocyte Contents of Chick Blood
TLDR
The present communication outlines the results of the experiments with chicks and describes the toxicological effects of the modern synthetic organic insecticides on the blood picture of poultry. Expand
Counting blood cells of chickens
TLDR
Six methods of diluting chicken's blood prior to counting erythrocytes and leucocytes in haemacytometers have been studied and there are considerable differences in blood counts between chickens even though environmental and genetic conditions were standardized as far as possible. Expand
