Effect of energy intake on performance and carcass composition of broiler chickens from two different genetic groups



Effect of energy intake on performance and carcass composition of broiler chickens from two different genetic groups



Brazilian Journal of Poultry Science 9(2): 117-122



In order to evaluate the effect of energy intake and broiler genotype on the performance, carcass yield and fat deposition, 600 male chicks (one day old) from 2 different genetic groups (AgRoss 308 - commercial line and PCLC - Embrapa non-improved line) were fed diets with different metabolizable energy levels (2950, 3200 and 3450 kcal/kg). A completely randomized experimental design in a 2x3 factorial arrangement with 4 replications of 25 birds per treatment was applied.
