Inspection of the proventriculus
and ventriculus revealed evidence of inflammation and mild ulceration.
The bird can take advantage of a wide variety of food due to presence of a glandular proventriculus
and a strong gizzard.

Diagnosis: The pharynx has 6 teeth with a lateral plate on each side and the proventriculus
extends about fifteen segments with approximately sixty muscle bands.
The weights of the proventriculus
and ventriculus were lower in the group subjected to thermal stimulation with heat (1.

After the birds died or were euthanized, we collected tissues aseptically from the brain, trachea, lung, kidney, spleen, heart, cecal tonsil, liver, leg muscle, intestine and pancreas, and proventriculus
for virus recovery.
On opening the carcasses, typical IBD lesions were observed; they included enlarged BFs which were also oedematous, haemorrhagic, and sometimes necrotic and atrophied, with caseous cheesy exudates in the mucosa, haemorrhages in the thigh, leg, and breast muscles, proventriculus
, caecal tonsils, thymus, and spleen.

Omnivorous insects have also adapted features within their intestinal tract to destroy the hard portions of the seed that could damage the midgut; the adaptations these insects have developed include sharp raduli covering the anterior portion of the proventriculus
, thought to better destroy the hard seeds and protect the mid- and hindgut (Forsythe 1982).
Following dissection, all prey items (stomach contents) found anterior to the proventriculus
, including in the mouth, crop, esophagus, and stomach, were removed and placed in 10% formalin and fixed for 3 w.
Use of 5 g SL powder tended to increase the weights of crop and proventriculus
compared to control (P greater than 0.
