  • 1979
  • Issue: 1
  • Volume: 9
E.M. Smith and J. Hattingh Page: 11 - 15

The effects of restricting chickens and ducks to cages on their haematology (as compared to that of free-roaming animals) were investigated in this study. Significant differences were observed in several haematological parameters and the study showed that conclusions that could…
