The Hen Y-Maze is an adaptation of the conventional Y-Maze apparatus and is used in the investigation of choice behaviors of fowls.
The Hen Y-Maze consists of a start area leading to a choice area that branches into two choice arms. Each section of the maze is separated from each other using gates. The choice arms have provisions for placement of rewards or other cues. In a simple preference testing paradigm, each choice arm is equipped with a resource, and the subject is observed for its choice over a session.
