Data from 16 inbred lines derived by three generations of full sib mating from a common outbred base population were used to estimate genetic correlations between body weight, abdominal fat content, follicle number, liver weight, egg weight and egg number using between-line variances and covariances. High genetic correlations were found between body weight,(More)
Genetic differences in body fat, body weight, follicle number, and egg production were found among six inbred lines of White Leghorn hens derived from a common outbred base population. High positive genetic correlations of body fat with body weight were found between inbred lines as well as between inbred parents and line-cross progeny. Heterosis of(More)
