Indicators of physiological stress in broiler chickens during road transportation



Indicators of physiological stress in broiler chickens during road transportation



Animal Welfare 1(2): 91-103



Differential leucocyte counts and plasma activities of the muscle enzyme, creatine kinase, were determined in blood samples obtained from broiler chickens, immediately prior to and following road transportation from farm to processing plant for slaughter. These parameters are proposed as indicators of physiological stress based on previous findings.
