Developmental instability and light regime in chickens ( Gallus gallus )
Contributor(s):: Moller, A. P., Sanotra, G. S., Vestergaard, K. S.
Fluctuating asymmetry, a measure of developmental instability, was measured in 3 skeletal characters in chickens raised under 3 different lighting regimes: (A) a 16:8 light-dark cycle, (B) a changing light regime, and (C) permanent light. Chickens reared under permanent light developed 40% larger...
Dustbathing and feather pecking in domestic chickens reared with and without access to sand

Observations of piglet play behaviour were recorded on real time video over 28 days during 6 periods for 6 h per period per litter (days 1-5, 6-10, 11-15, 16-20, 21-25, 26-30), from birth, in 3 farrowing environments: (i) an adjustable parallel crate (800 mm width) in a 2130 mm x 2105 mm pen;...
Effects of prior video stimulation on open-field behaviour in domestic chicks
Contributor(s):: Clarke, C. H., Jones, R. B.
Two experiments examined the effects of regular video stimulation on open-field behaviour in domestic chicks tested in the presence (Experiment 1) or absence (Experiment 2) of the familiar video image. In Experiment 1, socially housed chicks were either exposed daily from 2 to 8 days of age to...
