Poultryhub: Endocrine System

Armidale, New South Wales - Australia

The endocrine system consists of a number of organs (glands) located in different areas of the body which play an important part in the proper functioning of the animal. The organs produce special compounds called hormones, which, in turn, target particular systems or organs, and the way that they function. These glands are called endocrine glands because they do not have an opening to discharge their secretions but discharge them directly into the blood stream. They are then carried to their target systems and organs to carry out their task. In many cases different hormones operating together regulate particular functions. When these get out of balance, the birds body cannot function properly and hence performance will suffer, in some cases even to death.

The integumentary system consists of the skin, the feathers and the appendages (claws and beak). The skin covers the majority of the body and contains glands in the outer ear canal and the preen gland at the base of the tail, that the bird uses to preen its feathers. The integumentary system is very important in providing protection to the bird from a number of potentially dangerous situations. The functions provided by the integumentary system i
