Not a new ref by any means, but air sac lovers will want to check this out
if they haven't yet:

King, A.S.  1957.  The aerated bones of _Gallus domesticus_.  Acta
anatomica 31:220-230.

air sacs diverticular invasion of vertebrae.  Yikes!  Someone needs to look
at this in more specimens, more ontogenetic stages, and more taxa.
