Abstract

The debate on welfare issues related to the force feeding of ducks and geese involves understanding the reactions of the animals to the force feedingprocess. Two types of experiment were performed. Ducks and geese were trained to be fed in a pen 8 metres away from their rearing pen and were then force fed in the feeding pen. The hypothesis was that if force feeding caused aversion, the animals would not spontaneously go to the test pen. There were some signs of aversion in ducks, but not full avoidance, and there wereno signs of aversion in geese. In another experiment, the flight distancesof ducks from the person who performed the force feeding and from an unknown observer were measured. Ducks avoided the unknown person more than the force feeder. Their avoidance of the force feeder decreased during the forcefeeding period. There was no development of aversion to the force feeder during the force feeding process.
