    Keel bone damage (KBD) is a critical issue
    facing the laying hen industry today as a result
    of the likely pain leading to compromised welfare and
    the potential for reduced productivity. Recent reports
    suggest that damage, while highly variable and likely
    dependent on a host of factors, extends to all systems
    (including battery cages, furnished cages, and non-cage
    systems), genetic lines, and management styles. Despite
    the extent of the problem, the research community remains
    uncertain as to the causes and influencing factors
    of KBD. Although progress has been made investigating
    these factors, the overall effort is hindered by
    several issues related to the assessment of KBD, including
    quality and variation in the methods used between
    research groups. These issues prevent effective comparison
    of studies, as well as difficulties in identifying the
    presence of damage leading to poor accuracy and reliability.
    The current manuscript seeks to resolve these
    issues by offering precise definitions for types of KBD,
    reviewing methods for assessment, and providing recommendations
    that can improve the accuracy and reliability
    of those assessments.
