  • Data were collected while eight bantam hens undertook two inactive behaviours (digesting, thermoregulating). The model selected was: O2=[37.39× log(fH)]–64.55, R2=0.84. The significant effects of individual identity and behaviour were incorporated into the standard error of the estimate (s.e.e.) calculated when using the selected model
