Non-absorbed vitellus in broiler

The absorption of the vitellus begins during the embryonic stage, and at birth its relative weight should be less than 8% with respect to the total body weight of the bird. The persistence of the vitellus in a higher percentage is usually related to vertical infections, mainly infectious toxic hepatoenteritis. In the photograph, non-absorbed vitellus is observed on 5-day-old chickens, and the cause probably is an infection caused by SH2 producer bacteria.
