Abstract

The effect of an environmental enrichment - straw bales - on the behaviourof growing broiler chicks was investigated by comparing the behaviour of broilers kept in matched pairs of houses on commercial farms with and without bales. The birds provided with bales perched on them and clustered aroundthem. The most striking result, however, was that, even away from the bales, birds in the enriched houses were more active (showing more walking and running and less sitting) than birds in unenriched houses. The study provides support for the 'Freedom Food' recommendation that activity in commercially kept indoor chickens can be increased by providing environmental enrichment in the form of straw bales.
