Evidence suggesting that domestic chicks should not be used in imprinting research variability in performance during imprinting critical period

, : Evidence suggesting that domestic chicks should not be used in imprinting research variability in performance during imprinting critical period. Bulletin of the Psychonomic Society 16(6): 421-424

Three experiments were conducted under tightly controlled conditions to provide empirical evidence that chicks should not be used in research studying the formation of attachments in precocial birds. In a pilot study, a main study and a replication, several different periods of time were found within and between experiments during which an attachment seemed to be formed between a chick and the traning object. No statistically significant differences between any treatment groups were obtained in the main study or the replication, indicating a lack of reliable (i.e., repeatable) performance on the part of the subjects.
