The investigators hypothesize that it is possible to establish squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) cell lines from tumors originating from non-domestic species. The objective of this study is to establish primary cell lines for avian SCC. The investigators predict that establishment of these cell lines is an important step to better identifying viable treatment options for this tumor in birds.
