Comparative study on meat to bone ratio of spent hens vs. spent ducks



Comparative study on meat to bone ratio of spent hens vs. spent ducks



Kerala Journal of Veterinary Science 14(2): 153-156



Meat yield and meat to bone ratio were compared between spent hens (White Leghorn) and spent ducks (Khaki Campbell) aged 18 mo. The ready-to-cook yield averaged 876.25 g .+-. 24.92 (63.92%) and 839.50 g .+-. 15.66 (69%) for spent hens and spent ducks, respectively. The meat to bone and meat cum skin to bone ratios for groups averaged 1.83:1 and 2.29:1, respectively, for spent hens and 1.79:1 and 2.33:1, respectively, for spent ducks. As a poultry meat source, spent ducks offer equal or better promise than spent hens.
