Abstract

flight muscles, such as Galliformes and the long-legged storks and cranes, still need to be housed in enclosures with high fences with no convenient projections to give a foothold and help them to jump the barrier. The use of the technique preserves the appearance of an intact wing and the birds are in a suitable condition both for exhibition and for breeding. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS I wish to express my deepest gratitude to all my friends who helped me prepare this report for publication. REFERENCE WISSDORF, H., HEIDENREICH, M., BRAHM, E..
