Behaviour of laying hens in modified cages with nests and perches

, : Behaviour of laying hens in modified cages with nests and perches. Livestock Environment IV Proceedings of a conference held in Coventry, UK, 6-9 July 1993: 258-264

Conventional cages compromise the welfare of laying hens since they do not include a suitable nest-site. Three studies on the behaviour of hens in modified cages which incorporated plastic nest hollows are described. The first study showed that the hens used the nests repeatedly and consistently for egg-laying. This indicates that the modified cages satisfied at least some of the hens' requirements for a nest.
