Although the changes happen at different times for the mesenchymal density of bone marrow, primary cartilage, and ossification in large elements, it is clearly observed that the development of the skeleton in quail and chick are very similar and this can mean that quail and chick are classified under the galliformes
The affected poultry included species of the order Galliformes
(chickens, quail, etc.
