Genetic evaluation and major gene characterization of guinea fowl germplasm

Genetic evaluation and major gene characterization of guinea fowl germplasm

Proceedings, 19th World' s Poultry Congress, Amsterdam, Netherlands, 20-24 September 1992 Volume 3: 363-366

Data on the growth of 6309 half-sib progeny sired by 116 guineafowls over 3 years and on the egg production of 245 half-sibs sired by 59 were analysed. Sex dimorphism was observed for body weight, shank length and keel length, sex differences increasing from 3.5% at 10 weeks of age to 5% at 20 weeks.
