Ease of capture in Japanese quail of two lines divergently selected for adrenocortical response to immobilization.

Abstract

Divergent lines of Japanese quail have been genetically selected over several generations for a reduced (low stress, LS) or an exaggerated (high stress, HS) plasma corticosterone response to brief mechanical restraint. Female quail were housed in one mixed-line group (18LS + 18 HS) in one of the top-tier compartments of a brooder. At 32 d of age, the quail… (More)
