This project is part of the line of research in Agricultural Buildings Ambience inserted in the project on environmental study of broiler chickens. The objectives of this research project of doctorate is to design and construct an environmental preference test chamber that enables the user to manipulate the environmental conditions and monitor behavior and welfare of birds, and also validate the project conducting, after, two experiments to assess the behavior preference responses (related to the welfare)and performance of broiler chickens ahead for different environmental conditions, serving as the basis for a system of decision making. The main proposal of this work is to generate correlations between environmental variables to be studied, determining a new base of knowledge in Brazil linking the responses of performance and welfare of broiler chickens to the environment in which they are kept.
