ABSTRACT Atmospheric ammonia is harmful to poultry and human health. The effect of ammonia on the intestinal microflora of laying ducks is still unknown. In this study, the effects of atmospheric ammonia and exposure time on the intestinal microflora of laying ducks were investigated using 16S rDNA sequencing technology. The body weight, ovary weight, spleen weight, liver weight, and productive performance of laying ducks were also recorded, and the relationship between intestinal microflora… CONTINUE READING
