Four-week-old fowl were exposed to 40 degrees for 35 days and the effects on the serum concentrations of triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxine (T4), and corticosterone were investigated. Changes in resting heat production, food intake, body temperature, body weight gain, and growth (both in terms of skeletal growth and weight of selected organs) were also measured. Body temperature was increased at 40 degrees, and body weight gain and skeletal growth were both reduced. The serum concentrations of T3… CONTINUE READING
