Genetic and environment factors affecting size of body and body parts of turkeys. 1. The heritability and interrelationships of body weight and live body measurements



Genetic and environment factors affecting size of body and body parts of turkeys. 1. The heritability and interrelationships of body weight and live body measurements



Poult. Sci, 36: 296-301



Live body weights and measurements were obtained on Broad Breasted Bronze turkeys of both sexes at 3 ages, 8, 16 and 24 wks. A total of 1161 birds was involved. Heritability estimates of body weight were about 0. 5 to 0. 6 and they were of a similar order for shank length, keel length and body depth. Estimates of heritability for breast width and tibial circumference were somewhat lower, at about 0. 3 to 0. 4. There was no evidence of a general change in heritability with age.
