Villus height (a), crypt depth (b), villus : crypt ratio (c), and villus area (d) in the ileum in broilers at 24, 96, and 168-hour postinoculation (hpi) with Salmonella. NT-SHAM: no in ovo Thr supplementation and sham-inoculated in the posthatch challenge; T-SHAM: in ovo Thr supplementation and sham-inoculated; NT-SE: no in ovo Thr supplementation and SE NalR-challenged; and T-SE: in ovo Thr supplementation and SE NalR-challenged. The error bars represent the standard deviation.
