Abstract

A system was designed to facilitate the chronic infusion and/or serial blood sampling of rapidly growing, meat-type chickens with little or no stress to the bird. Techniques for surgically preparing an indwelling catheter, fabricating a harness system to protect this catheter, utilizing a miniature fluid swivel to provide free movement and infusing solutions via a programmable pump are described.
