The effect of the rearing system and biological factors on carcass conformation and slaughter traits of fattening chickens



The effect of the rearing system and biological factors on carcass conformation and slaughter traits of fattening chickens



Biotechnology in Animal Husbandry 23(3/4): 59-66



The effect of the rearing system (intensive and semi intensive) and biological factors (genotype, age and sex) on absolute and index values of carcass conformation in chickens (metatarsus length, keel length, breast depth, thigh girth and breast angle) were examined. Arbor Acres and Redbro chickens were used and the duration of fattening period was 42 and 50 days. Results revealed that chickens at 50 days old had better conformation when compared with 42 days old chicken.
