  2. Voluntary regulation of food intake in poultry

    Contributor(s):: Savory, C. J., Gentle, M. J., Hodgkiss, J. P., Kuenzel, W.

  3. Responses of farmed silver foxes ( Vulpes vulpes ) to excessive food availability: implications for using food as a yardstick resource in motivation tests

    Contributor(s):: Hovland, A. L., Mason, G., Ahlstrom, O., Bakken, M.

    Food is frequently used as a 'yardstick' in operant experiments. However, previous work on silver foxes had suggested that how food is presented can affect how they respond to it, with excess food leading to variable consumption rates, and cages containing food being avoided over control cages...

  4. Dietary awareness

    Contributor(s):: Forbes, J. M.

    This review deals with an animal's ability to sense foods in the environment up to the point of swallowing (using vision, olfaction, taste, texture, position and palatability), i.e., where awareness of food is clearly conscious. Then the consequences of eating at the levels of the digestive...

  5. The effect of early environment on neophobia in orange-winged Amazon parrots ( Amazona amazonica )

    Contributor(s):: Fox, R. A., Millam, J. R.

    Early experience is often a significant factor in shaping animals' later behaviour. Early maternal separation is associated with negative behavioral outcomes, such as increased fearfulness in rats, while higher levels of maternal grooming during the neonatal period are associated with decreased...

  6. The response of Merino wethers to feedlotting and subsequent sea transport

    Contributor(s):: Bailey, A. N., Fortune, J. A.

    During an 8-day assembly phase in a feedlot, sheep (n = 1500) given a shipping pellet (SP) consisting mainly of cereal straw and barley grain gained about 1 kg liveweight, while those on a lupin pellet (LP) of lupin hulls and kernels lost 1 kg. Farm source of sheep had a significant effect on...

  7. Assessment of hunger in growing broiler breeders in relation to a commercial restricted feeding programme

    Contributor(s):: Savory, C. J., Maros, K., Rutter, S. M.

    From 2 weeks old female broiler breeder chickens were restricted-fed on a commercial diet (R), twice that amount (2R), or ad libitum (AL). Motivation to eat in R and 2R birds was compared every third week with that of AL birds subjected to 3 to 72-h feed deprivation. AL and 2R birds grew 3 and 2...

  8. Sickness behaviour and its relevance to animal welfare assessment at the group level

    Contributor(s):: Millman, S. T.

    The inflammatory response evokes changes in behaviour including increased thermoregulatory activities and sleep, reduced social exploration and appetite, and altered food preferences. This sickness response also includes feelings of lethargy, depression, and pain, collectively referred to as...
