Role of the cloacal bursa (bursa fabricii) in diseases of chicks

Role of the cloacal bursa (bursa fabricii) in diseases of chicks

Revista Cubana de Ciencia Avicola 7(1): 37-49

The bursa was examined in 63 chicks, between 1 and 152 days old, received for PM examination. Pathological changes were seen in 12 of them, four of which had caecal coccidiosis, while two had Escherichia coli infection. In five cases (including three of the coccidiosis cases), the bursa was atrophied.
