The aim of this research project was to find evidence that supported the hypothesis that 2-3% of mortality in commercial egg industries is caused by cannibalism or oviduct dysfunction.
The long-term objective of this research program is to develop a world best practice to achieve peak egg production and to reduce mortalities to 2-3% in birds with intact beaks. .
This project aimed to improve feathering in laying hens by visually demonstrating (through video) the various bird behaviours that indicate positive and or negative outcomes.
