Moniello, Giuseppe and Bovera, Fulvia and De Riu, Nicola and Piccolo, Giovanni and Pinna, Walter and Di Meo, Carmelo (2006) Gender effect on the metabolic profile of ostriches (Struthio camelus domesticus). Italian Journal of Animal Science, Vol. 5 (3), p. 229-235. ISSN 1828-051X. Article.
In order to better define the effect of the sex on the metabolic profile of young ostriches (Struthio camelus
Domesticus), forty birds were divided into two groups by sex (20 males vs 20 females). The animals were
fed ad libitum natural pasture and corn silage. The daily ration was completed by administering 1200 g/head
of a commercial concentrate with the following chemical composition expressed as a percentage of dry matter:
crude protein 18.8, crude fibre 8.4, ether extract 3.6, ash 7.5. After about 12 h of fasting, in the morning
the blood was collected from the wing vein. The following biochemical parameters were determined: glucose,
cholesterol, triglycerides, lactate (LAC), total protein (TP), uric acid, total bilirubin (Tbil), creatinine
(CREA), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), phosphorus (P), natrium (Na), potassium (K), chloride (Cl), iron
(Fe), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (AP), cholinesterase
(ChE); α-amylase (Amyl), lipase (LIPA); γ-glutamyltransferase (GGT).
