Age-related changes in the carcass tissue composition and distribution of meat and fat with skin in carcasses of laying-type cockerels



Age-related changes in the carcass tissue composition and distribution of meat and fat with skin in carcasses of laying-type cockerels



Archiv fur Geflugelkunde 69(3): 135-139



The aim of the present study was to determine changes in the tissue composition and distribution of meat and fat with skin in carcasses of laying-type cockerels aged two to 18 weeks. The experiment was performed on Astra S laying-type cockerels (n=188). They were reared to the age of 18 weeks on deep litter, according to the general standards of broiler chicken rearing, and fed standard diets ad libitum.
