  4. A proposal for assessing individual differences in behaviour during early development in the domestic cat

    Contributor(s):: Raihani, Gina, Rodríguez, Axel, Saldaña, Amor, Guarneros, Marco, Hudson, Robyn

    Despite growing interest among biologists in animal personality, including in applied contexts, there have been few developmental studies of how and when differences in animal personality arise. And yet, efficient detection of personality differences early in development could be useful in...

  5. Behavioural and physiological responses of heifer calves to acute stressors: Long-term consistency and relationship with adult reactivity to milking

    Contributor(s):: Van Reenen, Cornelis G., Van der Werf, Jozef T. N., O’Connell, Niamh E., Heutinck, Leonie F. M., Spoolder, Hans A. M., Jones, R. Bryan, Koolhaas, Jaap M., Blokhuis, Harry J.

    The present study investigated the long-term consistency of individual differences in dairy cattles’ responses in tests of behavioural and hypothalamo–pituitary–adrenocortical (HPA) axis reactivity, as well as the relationship between responsiveness in behavioural tests and the reaction to first...

  6. Age over experience: Consistency of aggression and mounting behaviour in male and female pigs

    Contributor(s):: Clark, Corinna C. A., D’Eath, Richard B.

    Excessive aggression between pigs at mixing is a welfare and production issue resulting in stress, injuries and economic losses. If it can be demonstrated that aggression is a consistent behaviour trait, it might provide a means to reduce these losses. To test for consistency of aggressiveness,...

  7. Laboratory macaques: When to wean?

    Contributor(s):: Prescott, Mark J., Nixon, Mellissa E., Farningham, David A. H., Naiken, Sandiren, Griffiths, Mary-Ann

    Worldwide there is large variation in the age at which young macaques destined for use in research are permanently separated from their mothers, and in the subsequent social environment in which they are reared. This stems from variation in minimum weaning ages and rearing practices in guidelines...

  8. Improving puppy behavior using a new standardized socialization program

    Contributor(s):: Vaterlaws-Whiteside, Helen, Hartmann, Amandine

    Studies identifying the underlying determinants of adult dog behavior and highlighting successful methods of early intervention are essential to reduce and ultimately prevent problem behaviors developing. The aim of this research was to create and assess the impact of a new nest socialization...

  9. Both feather peckers and victims are more asymmetrical than control hens

    Contributor(s):: Tahamtani, Fernanda M., Forkman, Björn, Hinrichsen, Lena K., Riber, Anja B.

    Feather pecking is the major welfare issue facing the egg farming industry worldwide. Previous research has found a relationship between cannibalistic behaviour, fluctuating asymmetry of bilateral traits (FA) and body weight in laying hens. As cannibalism is linked to severe feather pecking, it...

  10. Development of physical activity levels in laying hens in three-dimensional aviaries

    Contributor(s):: Kozak, Madison, Tobalske, Bret, Springthorpe, Dwight, Szkotnicki, Bill, Harlander-Matauschek, Alexandra

    Levels of physical activity are known to be associated with a number of health and welfare parameters in laying hens, such as stronger bones. Despite this, we presently lack insight into the development of physical activity throughout the life of the laying hen. To close this knowledge gap, we...

  11. Behavioural outcomes of housing for domestic dog puppies (Canis lupus familiaris)

    Contributor(s):: Majecka, Katarzyna, Pąsiek, Magdalena, Pietraszewski, Dariusz, Smith, Carl

    Domestic dogs experience a sensitive period for learning during early life and conditions during this time can have important consequences in the adult. We investigated the effects of kennel environment during early life, comparing the temperaments of puppies reared in indoor kennels, located in...

  12. Abnormal repetitive behaviours in captive birds: a Tinbergian review

    Contributor(s):: Mellor, Emma, Brilot, Ben, Collins, Sarah

    Abnormal repetitive behaviours (ARBs) are associated with past, or present, welfare problems and are common elements of the behavioural repertoire of some captive animals, including birds. Millions of birds from hundreds of species are held in various captive settings, yet most avian ARB research...
