AbstractFull Text

Meat-type chickens are reared in very large group and are submitted to repeated encounters with unknown conspecifics. Our aim was to assess the consequences of these encounters on meat-type chicken learning abilities, social behaviour and emotional reactivity to unknown situations. Groups of 5...

AbstractFull Text

The social behaviour of animals, which is partially controlled by genetics, is one of the factors involved in their adaptation to large breeding groups. To better understand the relationships between different behavioural components (social and sexual motivation, fear and aggression) and production ...

Abstract

The social behavior of animals, which is partially controlled by genetics, is one of the factors involved in their adaptation to large breeding groups. To understand better the relationships between different social behaviors, fear behaviors and production traits, we analyzed the phenotypic and...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to perform the first genome-wide QTL analysis for social and fear behaviors in relation to production traits in birds. It was based on the study of a second generation cross between two lines of Japanese Quail divergently selected for their social motivation by the...

Abstract

In farm animals, emotional reactions such as fear behaviour may be inadequate and may compromise animal welfare. Two programmes of divergent genetic selection in the Japanese quail have demonstrated the feasibility of selection on components of emotional reactivity: fear behaviour on the one hand...

Abstract

The impact of different light sources (fluorescent tube, compact fluorescent and high frequency LED fluorescent tube) on the power consumption and broiler performance and behaviour were studied. The illumination was adjusted to 40 lux from 0 to 10 days and 20 lux from 10 to 35 days (±5 lux). The...

Abstract

Repeated encounters with unfamiliar conspecifics in large groups of domestic birds create a potentially stressful social environment which can affect the birds' emotional reactivity and consequently their welfare. As social relationships between young quail are particularly influenced by their...

AbstractFull Text

In quail, a non model species, accessing modern genotyping tools, using a large number of SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism), requires pooling resources from different programs. We have joined three studies. The first project aims to detect QTL responsible for social motivation in birds. The...

AbstractFull Text

The European directive 2007/43/EC requires a light intensity of 20 lux over 80% of the poultry house area. At the same time another directive (2005/32/EC) plans for high-energy consuming lighting sources to be substituted with low-energy consuming sources. Currently, very little is known about...

Abstract

This study examined the capacity of young Japanese quail to discriminate between a familiar cagemate (F) and an unfamiliar conspecific (U). Two tests of discrimination were initially compared: a simultaneous double choice test and a pair test allowing social pecking. Discrimination was more clearly ...
