Genetic parameter estimates for egg weight and its related traits in Japanese quail



Genetic parameter estimates for egg weight and its related traits in Japanese quail



Japanese Poultry Science 40(2): J66-J70



This experiment was carried out to estimate the genetic parameters on egg weight and other related traits in large egg weight line (LW line) and small egg weight line (SW line) Japanese quails and to investigate the effective selection for improving the proportion of standard egg size in these birds. The multiple regression analysis showed that egg weight was affected by body weight and the ratio of egg weight to body weight, but not by egg production rate in the LW and SW lines.
