Abstract:

The present gross morphometrical study was carried out on the brain of six healthy birds of Kadaknath Fowl in growing period (7 weeks to 16 weeks). The birds were procured from the Central Poultry Development Organization (CPDO), Eastern Region, Bhubaneswar and the research work was conducted at Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Jharsuguda, OUAT. It was found that the brain of Kadaknath fowl subdivided into cerebrum, cerebellum and medulla oblongata. It was found that the average maximum length and width of the brain were found to be (3.2±0.124) cm and (2.9±0.091) cm respectively. The right olfactory bulb was longer and wider than the left one. Similarly, the right optic lobe was larger than the left one. The average length of longitudinal intercerebral groove was measured as (1.9±0.025) cm. The average width of longitudinal intercerebral groove was uniform at cranial, middle and caudal parts and found to be (0.2±0.001) cm. Further, the average perimeter of middle vermis lobe of cerebellum was measured as (2.6±0.194) cm. The present baseline data on various important parameters of brain of Kadaknath fowl in grower period would pave the way for further research in this field.
