|Title:||Personality traits of high, low and non users of a free range area in laying hens||Contributor(s):||Hernandez, Carlos E (author); Lee, Caroline (author); Ferguson, Drewe (author); Dyall, Tim (author); Belson, Sue (author); Lea, Jim (author); Hinch, Geoffrey (author)||Publication Date:||2014||Open Access:||Yes||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/18899||Open Access Link:||http://www.wageningenacademic.com/doi/pdf/10.3920/978-90-8686-797-4||Abstract:||Free range poultry production is often perceived as a welfare friendly production system since it provides an outdoor range (OR) that allows the birds to express their full range of natural behaviours. However, a significant proportion of birds never use the OR and this could partly be due to individual characteristics of the animals. The aim of this study was to characterize personality traits of laying hens with different levels of OR use.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||ISAE 2014: 48th Congress of the International Society for Applied Ethology, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain, 29th July - 2nd August, 2014||Source of Publication:||Moving on: Proceedings of the 48th Congress of the International Society for Applied Ethology (ISAE 2014), p. 89-89||Publisher:||Wageningen Academic Publishers||Place of Publication:||Wageningen, The Netherlands||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||HERDC Category Description:||E3 Extract of Scholarly Conference Publication||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 141
