(13/02/2010) Egg retention

I have come across an interesting case recently. A mondain breeder called me because one of his hens was unable to lay the egg that was palpable just before the cloaca. He tried to lubricate the cloaca by administering some paraffin oil in it but it did not help.

(14/10/2005) About bacteria in general

Bacteria are single-cell creatures that are invisible to the naked eye. Their size varies from 0.1 to 10 microns (1 millimetre = 1,000 microns). Their structure varies from the simple to the complicated – for example, some do not even have a cell wall. For our purposes, we distinguish beneficial and pathogenic bacteria, though this classification is arbitrary and not necessarily precise. For example, some types of bacteria are largely beneficial or neutral for pigeons, but in certain conditions can still become pathogens.
