Note on a method for individual recognition in feed pecking in free running groups of hens

Brannas E, Wiklund BS, Burel C, Ciszuk P, Liljedahl LE, Kiessling A


A system for automatic registration and individual recognition of feed pecking (activity and quantity) in groups of free running hens was tested. A PIT (Passive Integrated Transponder)-tag system was used to separate and register individuals when they were feeding. An electronic balance system placed under the feeder registered the amount eaten by each individual on a PC. A test with two different feed stuffs; oat and wheat was performed on three hens during a total of 6 weeks. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved
