Direct and correlated effects of selection for body weight in fowls



Direct and correlated effects of selection for body weight in fowls



Arhiv za Poljoprivredne Nauke 46(163): 213-226



Divergent selection of fowls for 56-day body weight was carried out on each of 2 lines. In the 2 lines, the deviation between the high and low selection groups after 6 generations was 710 and 548 g. Realised hsuperscript 2s for and were 0.29 and 0.28 resp. in line 1, and 0.20 and 0.21 in line 2.
