Abstract

The density-related permanence test (DRP) is used to classify young birds (while in groups) according to their individual permanence in proximity to either a high or low density of conspecifics (HD or LD, respectively). The birds' performance in DRP was associated with underlying differences in the ...

Abstract

Background: Recent studies have demonstrated an effect of the gut microbiota on brain development and behavior leading to the concept of the microbiota-gut-brain axis. However, its effect on behavior in birds is unknown. The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of the absence of gut ...

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...

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

Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica; referred to simply as quail in this article) readily exhibit sexual behavior and related social behaviors in captive conditions and have therefore proven valuable for studies of how early social experience can shape adult mate preference and sexual behavior. Quail ...

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...

Abstract

In many bird species prenatal exposure to yolk androgens of maternal origin has been found to influence offspring behavioural phenotype. In contrast to altricial birds, far less is known about maternal effects in precocial birds. In a previous experiment we found that female quail (Coturnix...

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...
