Body temperature and oxygen consumption in young chicks fed thyroid hormone


, : Body temperature and oxygen consumption in young chicks fed thyroid hormone. Canadian Journal of Zoology 69(7): 1842-1847

In chicks the ability to regulate body temperature to adult levels develops during the first 2 weeks of life. Whether the ability of young chicks to regulate body temperature is increased by elevated levels of the thyroid hormone 3,3'5-triiodothyronine was examined. By 13 days following hatch, body temperatures of chicks were not significantly different from those expected for adult birds.
