Does anybody know anything about:
*carotenoids metabolism, absorption in birds (especially beta-carotene
*In which vegetables and/or fruits do birds intake carotenoids?
*What are the carotenoids effects on birds immune response?
Thanks to also indicate me books or papers about this subject.
All answers about other vertebrates interest me too.
