Poultry behaviour and welfare

Michael C. Appleby, Joy A. Mench, Barry O. Hughes

This authoritative textbook provides an introduction and guide to poultry behaviour and welfare. It describes the origin and biology of the various species of bird that are of agricultural importance, as well as giving succinct accounts of their key behaviour patterns. There is careful discussion of the many factors that influence their welfare, and detailed consideration of the ways in which legislation and commercial interests interact in an attempt to satisfy the many needs involved and discusses possible future developments within the subject.
