Inherited muscle abnormality in the domestic fowl



Inherited muscle abnormality in the domestic fowl



J. Hered 47: 248-252



A hereditary muscular abnormality similar to certain muscular dystrophies in man has been observed in New Hampshire fowls. Affected birds are unable to right themselves when placed on their backs on a flat surface. Most of the major muscles become enlarged, but the enlargement is frequently followed by atrophy. The time of onset of the abnormality varies. Most of the classifications were made at 8 wks. of age or later, but sometimes the dystrophy could be detected at 4 wks.
