The feathers and skin in birds are the first line of defence, but are also important in helping the bird to maintain a stable internal temperature, facilitate integral mobility and ensure successful mating in some species. For poultry, the physical conditions of feathers and skin are important barometers to assess the impact of management and ensure health and welfare. Based on the proceedings of a recent symposium, Poultry Feathers and Skin: The Poultry Integument in Health and Welfare documents the significant developments that have been made in our understanding of the importance of the integument to poultry species. 202 p.

Series: Poultry Science Symposium Series, Vol. 32
