From: Deterioration of eggshell quality in laying hens experimentally infected with H9N2 avian influenza virus

Figure 5

Scanning electron microscopy of the cross section of the eggshells from laying hens at different times post inoculation with H9N2 AIV. Representative scanning electron microscopy photograph of the cross section of the eggshell in the control group (A) and AIV-infected group at 1~7 dpi (BF) as well as analysis of the eggshell thickness (G) in laying hens at the indicated days post inoculation with AIV. Columns and vertical bars represent the mean ± SEM from five independent experiments. Bars with different superscript letters represent a significant difference (P < 0.05). Scale bar = 100 µm.
