Retention and excretion of polybrominated biphenyls by hens

, : Retention and excretion of polybrominated biphenyls by hens. Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology 15(3): 278-282

A diet containing 20 ppm polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) was fed to laying hens daily for 63 days. Observations were made on the hens during this period and for 49 days thereafter. Only one hexa and one hepta component of PBB occurred in sufficient quantity to allow routine quantitation by standard pesticide multi-residue analytical methods. The hepta component was more readily eliminated in excreta and less readily stored in body fat than the hexa component. Most of the PBB was eliminated through eggs, although only 70% of that fed was accounted for in these studies.
