Carcass characteristics and immunocompetence parameters of four commercial broiler strain chickens under summer season of Egypt



Carcass characteristics and immunocompetence parameters of four commercial broiler strain chickens under summer season of Egypt



International Journal Of Poultry Science: 2, 171-176



Selection for faster growth rate is accompanied by changes in the humoral and cell-mediated immunity that may potentially affect the overall immune response. The goal of the present study was to compare the carcass characteristics and immune response of four modern broiler strains. Four different genetic lines of meat-type chicks (125 Avian, 125 Arbor Acres, 125 Cobb and 125 Hubbard) were reared under similar managerial, environmental and hygienic conditions during summer season of Egypt.
