Abstract

The purpose of this experiment was to describe early behavioural responses to illness in rabbits and their relation with physiological changes to improve early detection of infection by Taenia pisiformis in rabbits. Twenty adult female New Zealand rabbits were randomly allocated to 2 groups to...

Abstract

The existence and consistency of individual behavioral types in response to challenging situations is of increasing interest in behavioral biology. In our study on European rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus), we (1) investigated correlations between social behavior during early development and...

Abstract

Three housing systems for fattening rabbits were compared using a stocking density of 15 rabbits m-2. The rabbits were housed in large pens (3.67 m2, 50 rabbits), small pens (0.66 m2, 10 rabbits) or in conventional standard cages (0.39 m2, 6 rabbits) from 31 to 72 days of age. Rabbits housed in...

AbstractFull Text

Three 16 weeks old rabbit bucks were lodged in a set of three contiguous two-floor cages, projected to increase the floor surface and to improve the welfare of the animals. They had the opportunity of looking at each other or not, and this chance was considered. The rabbits were firstly introduced...

AbstractFull Text

The vocalization of rabbit pups, within the first two weeks of life, from nine litters kept under various conditions was investigated. A sound recording was made using a condenser microphone with a frequency range from 40 to 20 000 Hz. Additionally all doe-pup contacts were recorded using infrared...

Abstract

The domestic rabbit is deprived of the protection of burrows and social hierarchy and lives in a limited space which is a fraction of a metre of a hard sanitized space, removed from odours, markers and social interaction. Hot climate is the main cause for abnormal maternal and sexual behaviour....

Abstract

Despite their gregarious nature, rabbits used for research are often housed individually due to concerns about aggression and disease transmission. However, conventional laboratory cages restrict movement, and rabbits housed singly in these cages often perform abnormal behaviours, an indication of...

AbstractFull Text

During recent years the analysis of the rabbits' welfare has received increasing attention. Many scientific investigations have been carried out on the effects of alternative housing systems on productive performance, meat quality and welfare of rabbits. Intensive rabbit breeding normally involves...
