We used broiler breeder hens fed one of 3 feed treatments: AL (ad libitum fed), Ram (restricted, fed in the morning) and Rpm (restricted, fed in the afternoon) to control for diurnal effects. We then conducted foraging motivation tests and collected home pen behavior and physiological samples at 4 times relative to feeding throughout a 24 h period.
