The welfare of family fowl. really these stored below in depth housing stipulations is a topic ~n which many. usually divergent and conflicting perspectives. are held. This divergence, could be the consequence both of inadequate wisdom of the proof of specific chicken husbandry structures or a differing interpretation of these evidence. with reference to chicken and the laying rooster particularly. there's a have to assemble jointly a simple wisdom of avian behaviour in all of the conditions and platforms of husbandry below which birds are shortly being saved. That wisdom may still result in the improvement of interpretative and with a bit of luck predictive theories which in flip will let us meet the innovations of Article three of the Council of Europe conference at the safety of Animals saved for Farming reasons: 'that animals might be housed, supplied with meals. water and care in a fashion which - having regard to their species and to their measure of improvement. model and domestication - is suitable to their physiological and ethological wishes in line with tested adventure and medical knowledge'. In furtherance of these ambitions a small staff of experts in fowl body structure and ethology. either from inside of and out of doors the ecu neighborhood met via invitation of the fee in Luxembourg among eleven and thirteen March 1980. Their target used to be to debate what's already identified. and will be agreed on. of the traditional body structure and ethological diversity of the laying hen.

I don't know whether there have been any experiments at all in which birds have been completely deprived, blinded, deafened, and so on. M. Faure I have done an experiment with deaf birds - they are quite normal with regard to growth rate, laying rate and behaviour. J.

The question I am asking is: is there any evidence in those strains that do pay attention to eggs, that if the eggs are left to accumulate it will lower production; that the hen will then begin to go into a stage of broodiness?
