Ascorbic acid decreases heat shock protein 70 and plasma corticosterone response in broilers (Gallus gallus domesticus) subjected to cyclic heat stress.
It is known that ascorbic acid (AA) supplementation can ameliorate the chicken's responses to heat stress. The influence of AA on heart heat shock protein 70 (hsp70) and plasma corticosterone (CS)Expand

Relationship of Sex, Age, and Body Weight to Broiler Carcass Yield and Offal Production
Abstract Male and female broilers (feather-sexable strain) at 28, 35, 42, and 49 days of age were utilized to determine the effect of sex, age, and BW on yield of various offal and edible carcassExpand

Housing and Selenium Influences on Feathering in Broilers
SUMMARY A majority of the broilers produced around the world are sexed on the basis of rapid-feathering females or slow-feathering males, which is facilitated by the presence of the sex-linked,Expand
