Duration of tonic immobility (TI) is a well-established criterion of fearfulness in birds, but its relation to production traits has been little studied. TI and 27 variables related to egg production and quality, feed consumption, and body condition were collected for 355 female Japanese quail. Experimental birds were the F2 generation from a reciprocal cross between a line selected for long TI and a line from a different origin and selected for early egg production. TI and several other… CONTINUE READING
