Morphopathological changes and pain in beak trimmed laying hens


, : Morphopathological changes and pain in beak trimmed laying hens. World' s Poultry Science Journal 62(1): 41-52

Beak trimming is routinely practiced in the poultry industry to reduce the incidence of feather pecking, aggression and cannibalism in egg layers. Feather pecking is painful to birds and potentially induces cannibalism. Cannibalism happens in all current housing environments, cage- and free-production systems, and is one of the major causes of bird death in commercial laying hens without beak trimming.

Intravenous bradykinin (Bk) elicited bronchoconstriction in the anaesthetized ventilated guinea-pig which was not mimicked by the B1 receptor agonist, des-Arg9-Bk. 2. Bradykinin-induced bronchoconstriction was inhibited by the B2 receptor antag...

Background and Objectives. The population of elderly patients with hematologic malignancies is increasing and so will the activity of stem cell transplantation (SCT) in this population. The aim of this study was to analyze the toxicity and surviva...

Substrate specificity of cis-desaturation of alipahtic compounds by resting cells of a mutant, Rhodococcus sp. strain KSM-MT66, was examined. Among substrates tested, the rhodococcal cells were able to convert n-alkanes (C13-C19), 1-chloroalkanes...

The allotriploid hybrids were backcrossed to the rape lines to introgress clubroot resistance...

Argonaute proteins are key players in microRNA (miRNA) processing and function. Next to their role as RISC effector proteins mediating target silencing, they actively participate in miRNA biogenesis and increase miRNA abundance by a yet unidentifi...
