Programme: Chicken Behaviour and Welfare MOOC
MOOC's (Massive Open Online Course) are open access courses that are available online. The Chicken Behaviour and Welfare MOOC has been developed as a joint effort between SRUC and University of Edinburgh and is available through Coursera.
This course dicusses the basic principles of chicken behavior, so what basic chicken behavior patterns are, and also what some of the abnormal behaviors are that might be seen in chickens, and why those things happen. Different systems of housing chickens, such as cage and free range egg production, the welfare of birds in these systems and how welfare can be maximized will also be discussed.
