AbstractFull Text

The effects of temperature and cage floor enrichment on some behavioral activities of growing rabbits and the effect of temperature on cage floor choice were investigated. Forty-eight rabbits from the Botucatu genetic group, weaned at 35 d of age, were housed at low density (1,500 cm2), four per...
