Product description


"Each chapter provides an overview of current knowledge on the topic in question, accompanied by an outline of advances in both scientific and applied fields. The chapters are written by twenty-five authors, all scientific experts in the subject discussed… In conclusion, Understanding the behaviour and improving the welfare of chickens is an expertly written, widely accessible book for all professionals in the field, which should provide increased understanding of chicken behaviour and welfare." (Animal Welfare - Universities Federation for Animal Welfare)


"The proposed contents of this book promise to provide a comprehensive coverage relevant to the behavior and welfare of chickens. The authors have proven expertise in their area of research. Having such information in a single volume should be valuable to a broad audience. I look forward to having a copy of the finished collection."
Paul B. Siegel, University Distinguished Professor (Emeritus), Virginia Tech, USA"Professor Christine Nicol is one of the foremost scientists in poultry behaviour and welfare. The list of authors comprise not only senior scientists but also promising young poultry ethologists with expertise in particular fields of poultry behaviour and welfare. This publication will be a standard reference on poultry welfare for egg and broiler producers, veterinarians, students, welfare auditors and government authorities. I am convinced that the publication will find a great number of readers in Europe, America, Australia and Asia."Emeritus Professor Werner Bessei, University of Hohenheim, Germany

“Christine Nicol is an international star in her own right and has assembled a highly impressive team. This book will be an excellent source of new knowledge and understanding for all those actively concerned with the principles, practicalities and ethics of food production from these sentient and fascinating animals.” Emeritus Professor John Webster, University of Bristol, UK

"The width and breadth of the contents is impressive, and the authors are all leading scientists in their field. The book will be an important contribution to everybody interested in chicken and poultry farming."
Professor Per Jensen, Linköping University, Sweden; Editor-in-Chief of Applied Animal Behaviour Science
