The welfare of family fowl. relatively these saved lower than extensive housing stipulations is a topic ~n which many. frequently divergent and conflicting perspectives. are held. This divergence, could be the outcome both of inadequate wisdom of the proof of specific bird husbandry platforms or a differing interpretation of these evidence. with reference to bird and the laying rooster particularly. there's a have to assemble jointly a easy wisdom of avian behaviour in the entire situations and platforms of husbandry less than which birds are shortly being stored. That wisdom may still result in the improvement of interpretative and expectantly predictive theories which in flip will let us meet the ideas of Article three of the Council of Europe conference at the safety of Animals stored for Farming reasons: 'that animals will be housed, supplied with nutrients. water and care in a way which - having regard to their species and to their measure of improvement. version and domestication - is suitable to their physiological and ethological wishes in line with proven adventure and medical knowledge'. In furtherance of these goals a small crew of experts in chicken body structure and ethology. either from inside of and out of doors the eu group met through invitation of the fee in Luxembourg among eleven and thirteen March 1980. Their aim used to be to debate what's already recognized. and will be agreed on. of the traditional body structure and ethological variety of the laying hen.

This point, in fact, raises two questions. 1. Is it possible to measure the behaviour of a large number of birds at a low cost? 2. Is it worth doing from welfare and commercial points of view? Question 1 - Is it possible? Before selection programmes can be devised we need to record the behaviour of a large number of birds in a relatively short time, but most observations of this sort take a long time. g. social behaviour and, because of the inevitable variability of the stimulus conspecific, these observations must be repeated several times.
If they are given a choice of switching lights off or switching them on, they choose to have more light but, again, they tend to have their light during the normal daytime. We are now seeing if they will work in order to switch lights off, if they will work actively in order to have a dark period. After that we are going to see if they have any preferences for level of illumination. R. Tauson (Sweden) I would like to ask Dr. Petersen if he has any figures on ammonia concentration in the air, ppm, also if he has the lux measurement of the light intensity on the different tiers he showed us.
In answer to the question posed by the title, the environment certainly needs to be improved, but it is also likely to be worth improving the bird's adaptation at the same time. It 29 is possible, for example, to reduce fear-eliciting stimuli but not to suppress them. Thus, a selection programme to reduce fearfulness would probably produce good results whatever types of breeding conditions prevail in a few years time. , 1979.
