Submitter Supplied Information

One-day old white Leghorn chicks were housed in brooders with a 12 hr light:dark cycle, using General Electric chroma 50 fluorescent lighting with irradiance of approximately 50W/cm2 at chick eye level. They received Purina Chick Chow food and water ad libitum. At one week of age and at the onset of the light phase, the chicks were anesthetized with inhalation ether, and a unilateral translucent white plastic goggle was glued to the periorbital feathers to induce ipsilateral form-deprivation myopia, alternating between the left or right eye.
