  • Data were collected while eight bantam hens undertook two active behaviours (eating, walking). The model selected was: O2=[10.79× log(PDBAxz)]+27.03, R2=0.77. The significant effects of individual identity were incorporated into the standard error of the estimate (s.e.e.) calculated when using the selected model
