A comparison of different measures of part-year egg production in chickens

A comparison of different measures of part-year egg production in chickens

Indian Journal of Poultry Science 12(1): 20-24

Data on 1359 White Leghorn pullets, sired by 30 cocks and hatched in Mar.-May, were analysed. Age at 1st egg averaged 178.71 days, egg production during the first 100 days of laying 73.70, egg production to 40 wk of age and to 31 Jan. 75.21 and 85.04 resp., and annual egg production 191.81.
