Leucocyte responses of the female domestic chick (Gallus gallus domesticus) due to KCl and NaCl treatment



Leucocyte responses of the female domestic chick (Gallus gallus domesticus) due to KCl and NaCl treatment



Indian Journal of Poultry Science 20(3): 159-161



White Leghorn pullets 50 days old given daily by mouth for 7 days 2 ml of a 4% solution of KCl or NaCl showed appreciable increases in the number of heterophils and monocytes but an abrupt reduction in lymphocytes and atrophy of the lymphatic organs. Bodyweight at the end of the trial was 288.3 g without the chlorides, and 194.2 and 163.3 g with KCl and NaCl, respectively.
