|Title:||Gut impaction in free range hens||Contributor(s):||Ruhnke, Isabelle (author) ; Cowling, G (author); Sommerlad, M (author); Swick, Robert A (author) ; Choct, Mingan (author)||Publication Date:||2015||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17526||Abstract:||This case study reports the outcome of an extreme overconsumption of pasture by free-range laying birds. It outlines the consequences of malnutrition due to animal behavior and housing condition in free-range laying hens, such as increased mortality and morbidity, leading to reduced animal welfare outcomes and compromised bird performance. This paper suggests a number of practical solutions and outlines the significance of future studies on fibre intake in free range birds.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||26th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 9th - 11th February, 2015||Conference Details:||26th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 9th - 11th February, 2015||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 26th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, p. 242-244||Publisher:||Poultry Research Foundation, University of Sydney||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||ISSN:||1034-6260||Field of Research (FOR):||070202 Animal Growth and Development||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://sydney.edu.au/vetscience/apss/proceed.shtml||Series Name:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium Proceedings||Series Number :||26||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 561
