  The digestive organs of Malaysian Village Fowl (MVF) and Broiler Breed (BB) differ in body weight were studied grossly and histologically. Weight of digestive organs and length of small intestine were obtained from fifty male from each breed euthanased from first day after hatch to 4 months. At day 20 body weight of BB was five times greater than those of MVF. The differences between breeds for the weight of vitelline residue, proventriculus, gizzard, liver, pancreas, weight and length of small intestine segments for the absolute and relative to body weight at day one were also obtained. The liver, pancreas and intestinal segments of the two breeds showed increased in relative weight at the 10 days post-hatch and after that the relationship were reversed. At days 20-4 months post-hatch, all organs relative weight of MVF increased except jejunum in 56-120 days and ileum in 56 days. The same patterns observed for intestinal length in both breeds. Day one post-hatch relative lengths of all intestinal segments in MVF were higher than BB. The latter was dominantly showed larger proventricular glands, gizzard glands and gizzard lining membrane. In BB, the villi heights of intestinal mucosa were higher than that of MVF, except in ileum at days 20 and 56 post-hatch. The villus surface areas were constantly greater in BB, the crypt depths were greater in BB, except in 56 and 120 days. There were no different in thickness of muscularis externa in each intestinal segment at the day one and after the 20 days old.

  Red Jungle Fowl (RJF) (120 days old; mean body weight 614 g) and Commercial Broiler chickens (CB) (35 days old; mean body weight 1800 g) were used to study the effects of road transportation and translocation on leucocytic and behavioural reactions. The birds were raised in floor pens at a farm in Jenderam Hilir, Selangor. The birds were translocated by road transportation for 60 min to the Poultry Research Unit, University Putra Malaysia and assigned in battery cages with wire floors. Immediately following transportation, the heterophil to lymphocyte ratios in RJF and CB were elevated. The ratios returned to basal level two days following translocation. Translocation to battery cages resulted in higher frequency of standing, pacing and pecking at non-nutritive materials in RJF compared to their CB counterparts. It was concluded that physiologically both RJF and CB were equally stressed following transportation and translocation. However, as measured by stereotypic pacing, RJF were more frustrated than their CB counterparts.
