Hi everyone, I am a poultry behaviour and welfare scientist, and I am developing a FREE course which will run in spring 2015, on behaviour and welfare of chickens for the back yard producer. It will be available on the Coursera website. What I want to know is: what do YOU want to know, so that I develop a course that you find useful? I will talk about the senses, motivation, learning, major behaviour patterns (i.e. courting, mating, nesting; feeding and drinking behaviour; social behaviours including aggression; abnormal behaviours). I will discuss the ethical and legal obligations you have as a keeper of animals, ways to assess poultry welfare, the differences in common poultry production systems, and humane culling of sick stock, transport and slaughter. What else would you like to see? Thanks!
