A note on growth rate and production in desi and exotic fowls, and their intermated (F2) cross-groups



A note on growth rate and production in desi and exotic fowls, and their intermated (F2) cross-groups



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 47(12): 854-855



Data are tabulated on the fattening performance (36 birds/breeds or cross) and carcass yield (10 birds/breed or cross) of White Leghorn (WL), Rhode Island Red (RIR), desi, WL X RIR, desi X RIR, desi X WL, desi X (RIR X WL), WL X (RIR X desi), and RIR X (WL X desi) male broilers. Live weight at 10 wk of age ranged from 657.5 g for desi to 866.5 g for WL X RIR birds. Mean weight of the 2-way crossbreds was higher (811 g) than that of the purebreds (759 g) and of the 3-way crossbreds (795 g).
