    Keeper of the hens

    ladychook is in need of our help on unlocking the mysteries of why some chickens peck and eat other chicken's feathers!

    She is a final year student at Bristol University, studying animal behaviour and her dissertation is on feather pecking/cannibalism in chickens.

    Ladychook needs to collect some data by either observing flocks of chickens or doing telephone surveys with those who keep chickens.

    If anyone reads this who:

    Has chickens
    lives in BRISTOL and surrounding area
    lives in DEVON (anywhere)

    please get in touch if you wouldn't mind her observing your chooks for 20 minutes or so or taking part in a phone survey (which also wouldn't take long she promises).

    It doesn't matter if your chickens have had cannibalistic issues in the past or whether they are the model bird - this study is a preliminary study looking at whether the problem extends to smaller flocks or not.

    You can either post on the forum, or use the contact form and I'll pass your comments on.

    Hope to hear from you all soon!
