Genetic analysis of growth curve parameters for male and female chickens resulting from selection on shape of growth curve



Genetic analysis of growth curve parameters for male and female chickens resulting from selection on shape of growth curve



Journal of Animal Science 78(10): 2515-2524



The objectives of this research were to evaluate gender differences and selection on body weight as they affect growth curves of chickens. Marginal posterior densities of growth curve parameters were studied by Gibbs sampling on 10,671 male and female chickens originating from five lines.
