2.8 Skeleton of a chicken (see Figure 2.12 for detailed view of the pectoral girdle and wing). Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 2.9
2.9 Cranial kinesis in domestic fowl. (a) Closed-mouth view. (b) Open-mouth view. When the jaw bone is lowered, the quadrate bone pushes the jugal arch and pterygoid–palatine bone rostrally to elevate the upper jaw, facilitating a wide gape. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 2.10
2.10 Rhynchokinesis. In birds such as waterfowl, only the rostral part of the upper jaw moves and the nasal openings are elongated and slit-like. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 2.12
2.12 Ventral view of the pectoral girdle and left wing. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 2.13
2.13 (a) Galliformes are anisodactyl. Note the spurs on the caudomedial aspect of the tarsometatarsus. (b) Swimming birds such as ducks and geese are palmate. Note the webbing between the cranial second, third and fourth digits. The capacity to grip is lost and the backward pointing digit loses contact with the ground. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 2.14
2.14 Ventral origins of the pectoral and supracoracoideus muscles, which allow the heavy musculature to be kept close to the bird’s centre of gravity. The supracoracoideus muscle elevates the wings and the pectoral muscles depress the wings. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 2.15
2.15 Ventral view of the coelom. (a) The sternum and abdominal wall have been removed. (b) The post-hepatic septum has been removed to reveal the viscera beneath. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 2.16
2.16 The major systemic arteries in the bird. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 2.17
2.17 The major systemic veins in the bird. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 2.18
2.18 Location of the lungs and air sacs. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 2.19
2.19 Air flow through the respiratory tract of a bird during (a) inspiration and (b) expiration. Air flows in the same direction (caudal to cranial) in both phases of respiration. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 2.20
2.20 Lateral view of the domestic hen showing the gastrointestinal and urogenital tracts. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 2.21
2.21 Cross-section of the ventriculus from a granivorous bird showing well developed grinding muscles. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.

2.23 Cloaca and urogenital tract in a female bird showing the left oviduct and kidneys. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
