Morpho-histological Study of the Bursa of Fabricius of Broiler Chickens during Post-hashing Age

Authors: T. Khenenou, M. Melizi, H. Benzaoui

Abstract:

The study of morphometric and histologic evolutions of the Bursa of Fabricus during 27 weeks of post-hashing age, realized on 88 subjects of broiler chicken they permitted to collect information about the morpho-histological aspect according to their post-hashing age; showed the size and the weight of the Bursa of Fabricius which reach their maximum between the 10th and the 11th week of age and the physiologic involution phenomena. These variations are in close relationship to the sexual maturity. These results can be used in the diagnosis of viral disease such as the Gumboro disease, Marek disease.

Keywords: broiler chicken, bursa of fabricius, Morphohistology, post-hashing evolution
