Separating the Effects of Group Size, Density, and Enclosure Size on Movement and Use of Space in Domestic Fowl (Gallus gallus domesticus)
This project was designed to separate the confounded effects of group size, density, and enclosure size, and to examine the role of enclosure design and its related parameters in shaping movement patterns and use of space ...
THE EFFECTS OF POLYCHLORINATED BIPHEYNLS (PCBs) ON AVIAN CARDIAC DEVELOPMENT
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are a class of synthetic organochlorines that are thermally stable, resistant to degradation, and persistent in the environment as a result of bioaccumulation and intermittent redistribution ...
ENERGY METABOLISM IN DEVELOPING CHICKEN LYMPHOCYTES DURING THE EMBRYONIC TO POSTHATCH TRANSITION
In chickens, the primary energy substrate is lipid during embryogenesis and carbohydrate after hatch. Accordingly, chicks adapt their metabolism to utilize glucose after hatch; however, little is known about metabolic ...
FORAGING STRATEGIES, USE OF SPACE AND AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR OF DOMESTIC FOWL (Gallus gallus domesticus)
Domestic fowl were tested in three experiments, all investigating the mediating effects of three group sizes of 5, 10, and 20 individuals, on behavioral responses under varying environmental conditions. The first experiment ...
