Abstract

Adrenalectomized young Carneau pigeons fed 1.75 g of a salt mixture daily showed an average period of survival of 9 days. Such pigeons eat little food and lose weight. Prolactin induced more than normal gains in body weight when adrenal insufficiency was not acute and restored food intake to a level almost equal to that of unoperated birds.
