The effects of growth hormone and/or thyroxine treatments on antibody production, primary lymphoid organ development, and general body growth were examined in two dwarf strains (sex-linked dwarf--SLD, and autosomal dwarf--ADW) and in a normal-growing strain (K) of White Leghorn chickens. One-day-old male chicks were assigned to experimental groups and were… CONTINUE READING
