    I need to know for medicine administering purposes where a chickens airway is. Is there a diagram anywhere? I haven't been able to find a good one. I know there is a slit on the roof of their mouth which leads to the nares. Then there is a hole in the throat behind the tongue and a slit underneath the tongue but I don't know what these are. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me?
