T his edition of Poultry Digital Magazine looks at the welfare of multiple species – a big issue for a big issue. We've even looked at human welfare (page 16), whose social sustainability is often not considered in discussions of animal and environmental protection. Join us to learn how keel bone damage was studied in relation to productivity and mobility (page 10), and to get an update on recent research into piling behaviour and its associated welfare concerns (page 21). We also take a fresh look at global goose (page 12) and duck welfare (page 24), as well as how feed type might impact quails during transportation in terms of stress. By the way, how's Brexit going to aff ect the welfare of pheasants on farms and grouse on moors? Especially considering so much of the UK's pheasant population is imported as eggs or day-olds from France (page 30). Read on to fi nd out, and join us again in September for our special issue on "Poultry Heroes" – people who are changing the way we think about and raise poultry.
