Effects of dietary lipid level on laying performance and food efficiency in normal and dwarf fowls

Effects of dietary lipid level on laying performance and food efficiency in normal and dwarf fowls

Genetique, Selection, Evolution 18(4): 505-509

Data are tabulated on egg production traits and traits associated with feed efficiency for 36 normal (Dw+) and 49 dwarf (dw) White Leghorns and 195 dwarf fowls of a brown-egg strain fed a normal diet or a high-lipid diet (1.9 vs. 4.2% lipids). In WL fowls, values of egg production traits were significantly higher for normal than for dwarf fowls.
