AbstractFull Text

High Tryptophan (Trp) supplementation has been shown to reduce deleterious behaviour in laying hens, however this effect is not established in other species. Moreover, Trp may be used by bacteria for the synthesis of indolic compounds that have negative consequence on host behaviour, and we...
