Abstract

OBJECTIVE To develop a reticulocyte classification scheme, optimize an avian reticulocyte staining protocol, and compare the percentages of reticulocyte types with polychromatophil percentage in blood samples from birds. SAMPLE POPULATION Blood samples from a red-tailed hawk and 31 ill birds. PROCEDURES A single blood sample obtained from a red-tailed… (More)
