Effect of sex separation at the finisher phase on the comparative growth performance, carcass characteristics and breast muscle development between male and female broiler chicks



Effect of sex separation at the finisher phase on the comparative growth performance, carcass characteristics and breast muscle development between male and female broiler chicks



Nigerian Journal of Animal Production 21(1-2): 11-18



Males and were raised together for 4 weeks, after which they were distributed into all-and mixed sex groups for a further 6 weeks. Six birds per sex from each group were dissected at 10 weeks of age. There were no significant sex differences in growth rate, feed consumption, feed conversion, breast muscle weight, fat deposition and weight of internal organs in any of the rearing groups.
