Identification of chromosomal regions associated with growth and carcass traits in an F(3) full sib intercross line originating from a cross of chicken lines divergently selected on body weight.
An F(3) resource population originating from a cross between two divergently selected lines for high (D+ line) or low (D- line) body weight at 8-weeks of age (BW55) was generated and used forExpand

Thirty-four generations of divergent selection for 8-week body weight in chickens.
Chickens of the Slovenian commercial Prelux-bro line were divergently selected over 34 generations for high and low BW at 8 wk of age. The aim of the study was to estimate responses to selection withExpand

Effect of excess folic acid on egg production, fertility and hatchability in layer breeders
Folic acid (FA) (also known as folate or vitamin B9) is essential for all tissues with a high rate of cellular division and growth and therefore very important in reproduction. The present study wasExpand

EVALUATION OF GROWTH AND CARCASS TRAITS BETWEEN 42 AND 58 DAYS OF AGE IN CHICKENS DIVERGENTLY SELECTED FOR BODY WEIGHT
The effect of divergent selection for high (H) or low (L) body weight at eight weeks of age for 25 generations on growth and carcass traits between 42 and 58 days of age was studied. The chicks wereExpand
