Social and spatial organization of male behaviour in mated domestic fowl

, : Social and spatial organization of male behaviour in mated domestic fowl. Applied Animal Ethology 9(3/4): 341-349

Observations were made of male spacing, mating and agonistic behaviour in 2 pens of mated domestic fowl. In both pens, site attachment was found, with a bunching of observations for cocks living close to a wall. High-ranking males appeared to move over smaller areas than did low-ranking males. A simple model of dominance relationships between cocks provided a good explanation of the interferences to mating by threatening neighbours.

The effects of morphine on acoustic evoked responses were determined in the pineal body and hypothalamus of unanesthetized rats. The predominant effect of morphine (10 and 30 mg/kg) was to increase the amplitudes of evoked response components in t...
