Meckelâs diverticulum in broilers
This appendix forms a sac between the jejunum and the ileum.
Persistent Meckelâs diverticulum in broilers: This appendix forms a sac between the jejunum and the ileum. Its reabsorption starts in the embryo and finishes after hatching. Its volume progressively decreases as the bird gets old. Uncomplete reabsorption is usually related to vertical infections during the embryonic stage, mainly by infectious toxic hepatoenteritis.
