1. Corticosterone, cortisol, triglycerides, aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and uric acid (UA) plasma concentration were measured at 8 (7 days after group housing), 12 (after 7 days of force feeding) and 13 weeks of age (at slaughter after 12 days of force feeding), and 45 min after an adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) stimulation test at 8 weeks of age in 12 male mule ducks in an on-farm experiment. 2. No significant increase of corticosterone was found during the force-feeding period… Expand

Assessment of Cortisol and DHEA Concentrations in Griffon Vulture (Gyps fulvus) Feathers to Evaluate its Allostatic Load
TLDR
Moulted feathers can be a non-invasive and an interesting tool to evaluate the allostatic load of wild birds and they allowed better understanding the relationship between hormones of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis and the physiological status of the birds. Expand
Dietary methionine deficiency reduces laying performances of female common ducks and impacts traits of interest of their mule ducklings.
TLDR
It was concluded that feeding female laying ducks with a restricted dietary Met content during the growing and laying periods has a negative effect on egg weight and composition of the ducklings that were restricted in nutrients during their early development. Expand

Manipulation of plasma uric acid in broiler chicks and its effect on leukocyte oxidative activity.
TLDR
Two studies show that PUA concentrations can be related to oxidative stress in birds, which can be linked to tissue aging. Expand
Influence of stress on the secretion of corticosterone in the duck (Anas platyrhynchos).
TLDR
The results have demonstrated the lability of the secretion of corticosterone in response to stress and demonstrated its usefulness as a physiological indicator of stress in ducks. Expand
Effect of chronic oxidative/corticosterone-induced stress on ascorbic acid metabolism and total antioxidant capacity in chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus).
TLDR
It is concluded that chronic corticosterone-induced stress caused a significant reduction in tissue AsA concentration but did not inhibit GLO activity, and the findings suggest that CCIS may alter AsA recycling, influx or turnover in different tissues of chickens. Expand
Corticosterone plasma concentration in male mule ducks: effects of sampling sites, repeated samplings and ACTH injections.
TLDR
Investigation of changes in plasma corticosterone concentrations according to puncture sites and various challenges including injections of an ACTH agonist (Immediate Synacthen) were investigated in male mule ducks found repeated bleedings following ACTH challenge maintained higher cortic testosterone concentrations.

EFFECT OF EXOGENOUS ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE ADMINISTRATION ON PLASMA CORTICOSTERONE CONCENTRATIONS IN AMERICAN BLACK DUCKS (ANAS RUBRIPES)
TLDR
Recommendations for the ACTH stimulation test in black ducks include a 30 min acclimatization period for recently captured or relocated ducks and determination of plasma corticosterone concentration 1 to 2 hr following intramuscular injection with 0.25 mg cosyntropin. Expand

TLDR
Broiler chickens seem to adapt to high circulating CORT levels in terms of their redox homeostasis after 3 days of treatment under the present experimental conditions, which indicates an enhancement of the nonenzymatic antioxidant capacity during stress. Expand

TLDR
The significantly increased plasma nonenzymatic antioxidants (uric acid [UA] and total antioxidant capacity) in concert with the enhanced enzymatic antioxidant activity (SOD in heart) during short-term CORT administration indicate preventive changes to counteract the oxidative injury, and these may be tissue specific.

Force-feeding procedure and physiological indicators of stress in male mule ducks
TLDR
No significant indication that force-feeding is perceived as an acute or chronic stress by male mule ducks is observed, Nevertheless, it remains to be shown that their adrenocorticotropic axis is responsive to acute stressors. Expand
Habituation of the corticosterone response of ducks (Anas platyrhynchos) to daily treadmill exercise.
TLDR
The reduced corticosterone response to exercise of ducks to exercise may be due to decreased ACTH release rather than to a reduction in adrenal ACTH sensitivity. Expand

TLDR
Levels of glycogen and fat in the liver showed a diurnal difference, being higher at dusk than at dawn during the post- and premigratory periods and towards migration time, which indicated hyperlipogenesis and sparing of lipid. Expand
