The effects of selection under continuous light for reduced oviposition interval within a sequence of eggs on plasma luteinising hormone (LH) concentrations during the ovulatory cycle were investigated in lines of Australorps and White Leghorns maintained on a 24-h light:dark cycle. Selection did not significantly alter LH concentrations during mid-sequence cycles in either breed. In the control lines, concentrations were higher in the Australorps than in the White Leghorns before and at peak… CONTINUE READING
