Hormones and maternal behaviour in domestic hens : reciprocal influences

Abstract : Investigated maternal behavior and endocrine concomitants in 10 adult hens without prior maternal experience. Throughout continuous exposure to newly hatched chicks, Ss' aggressive behaviors disappeared and maternal responses emerged. After 13 days' exposure, gonadic steroids were dramatically depressed, and egg laying was almost stopped.
