Phenotypic parameters for growth, carcass and meat quality traits were measured in the normal feathered and naked neck strains of Tswana chickens to compare the strains performance on these traits under improved management. Ninety-three chickens were used (56 normal and 37 naked neck chickens). Feed intake was recorded daily while body weight and feed utilization were measured fortnightly from hatching to 20 weeks of age. After 20 weeks, 60 chickens were randomly selected for slaughter and… CONTINUE READING
