Abstract

Social relationships in domestic fowl are commonly assumed to rely on social recognition and its pre-requisite, discrimination of group-mates. If this is true, then the unnatural physical and social environments in which commercial laying hens are typically housed, when compared with those in which ...

Abstract

Most of the research on animal welfare has focused on the negative aspects of the matter including an array of stress categories, whereas little has been done about the positive states of well being. The present study aims to describe indicators of positive animal welfare suitable for on-farm...

AbstractFull Text

The quantity of reward in a Y-maze preference test refers to the period of time the animal is allowed contact with the chosen resource. Fifteen hens (Hy-Line Brown strain) were given eight preference test trials (conducted on alternate days) for their choice between dust (a tray of peat moss) or...

Abstract

Dispersal is a major life history trait of social organisms influencing the behavioral and genetic structure of their groups. Unfortunately, primate dispersal is difficult to quantify, because of the rarity of these events and our inability to ascertain if individuals dispersed or died when they...

It was shown that the average group size was 3.6 animals (2-25). Narwhals were sometimes segregated by sex ...

Abstract

Fur rubbing has often been attributed as a social as well as a medicinal function in capuchin monkeys, yet to date there have been no studies investigating the effects of fur rubbing on subsequent group dynamics. Here, we report for the first time how social group cohesion is affected by fur...

Abstract

The aim of this review is to discuss the effects of selection method and early-life history on the behavioural development of laying hens. Especially in larger groups, laying hens often develop damaging behaviours, such as feather pecking and cannibalism, leading to impaired animal welfare. We...
