Reciprocal Hetero-Transplantation of Limb Primordia between Duck, Turkey, Guinea and Chick Embryos

    Abstract

    SUCCESSFUL transplantation of a chick limb bud to a turkey host was demonstrated by Eastlick1 in 1939. Since that time, a number of grafts have been made by transplanting wing or hind limb primordia to the intra-embryonic cœlom or lateral body wall of a variety of hosts. Normal shaped limbs have been secured in reciprocal grafts made between chicken and turkey, duck and chicken, guinea and chicken, and turkey and guinea embryos.
