Abstract:Caged laying hens were fed 0.01, 0.10, 1.0 and 10.0 p.p.m. of lindane in their daily ration for 60 days. Up to 10 p.p.m. lindane appears to be well tolerated by hens and docs not interfere with egg production, feed intake or utilization and weight maintenance. Lindane was not detected by Schechter-Hornstein chemical analysis at any time in eggs or tissues of birds fed 0.01 p.p.m; however it was detected in the other levels. Lindane was concentrated in the yolk, none being found in the albumen. Sixty days after termination of feeding lindane, it was found in trace quantities in eggs from the 10-p.p.m. diet, but not in tissues. Skin and visceral fats are the chief storage sites with some appearing in brain tissues and feces at the 10-p.p.m. dosage.
