Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: To compare the heart rates of adult free-range chickens (Gallus domesticus) measured by auscultation with a stethoscope with those measured simultaneously using electrocardiography (ECG).
METHODS: With each bird in a standing position, estimation of the heart rate was performed by placing a mark on paper for every 4 beats for roosters and 8 beats for hens as detected by auscultation over 30 s, while simultaneous ECG was performed.
RESULTS: Heart rates measured by auscultation showed a high correlation (r = 0.97) with those measured by ECG.
CONCLUSION: There was a high correlation between the heart rates of adult free-range chickens measured by auscultation with a stethoscope and those measured simultaneously using ECG.
