"Poultry are considered simple monogastrics in terms of their nutritionalrequirements, but they differ markedly from other monogastrics in terms of
the anatomy of their digestive tract (see Figure 9). They have no teeth for grinding food and reducing particle size. Instead the esophagus enters a proventriculus which is a simple glandular stomach where some digestive enzymes are released. This is followed by a gizzard which is a muscular organ used for grinding feed. Most digestion takes place in the small and large intestine (more than in other monogastrics). Consequently, poultry require a higher quality diet than most other animals."
