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 carcass components. Individual bird BW ranged from 756 to 2,970 g. During processing, weight of blood, feathers, head, neck, feet, preen gland, heart, liver, gizzard, gastrointestinal tract, fat pad, hind half (legs, thighs, and saddle), wings, Pectoralis major, breast skin, Pectoralis minor, back with lungs… Expand
Relationship of sex, strain, and body weight to carcass yield and offal production in turkeys.
TLDR
Choice of strain, sex, and age at slaughter affect the projected production of edible carcass and offal components in three strains of market turkeys. Expand
Growth curves for body weight and major component parts, feed consumption, and mortality of male broiler chickens raised to maturity.
TLDR
Cumulative mortality increased with age, especially beyond 70 d of age, rising to 50% by the end of the experiment, related to high incidence of leg weakness observed in the same period. Expand
Effects of age, sex, and duration of postmortem aging on percentage yield of parts from broiler chicken carcasses.
TLDR
Yield of meatier parts such as thighs, forequarters, breasts, and filets increased with birds' ages, and this information is useful to integrated poultry firms wishing to optimize yield of the most commercially valuable parts. Expand
MAJOR CARCASS PARTS OF BROILER CHICKEN FROM DIFFERENT GENOTYPE, SEX, AGE AND NUTRITION SYSTEM
The aim of this paper was to examine the influence of sex, age and nutrition system on mass and yield of major parts in broiler chicken carcass from different genotypes. Research material was one-dayExpand
Carcass composition and yield of 1991 vs 1957 broilers when fed "typical" 1957 and 1991 broiler diets.
TLDR
Whole carcass yield and the yield of parts, as well as whole carcass analysis for fat, moisture, and ash, were measured in the 1957 Athens-Canadian Randombred Control and in the 1991 Arbor Acres feather-sexable strain. Expand
The influence of body weight on carcass and carcass part yields, and some meat quality traits in fast- and slow-growing broiler chickens.
TLDR
SG broilers have also some disadvantages for carcass and meat qualities, even they compared with FGs slaughtered in same slaughter weights, however, SGs’ breast meat may be more attractive for consumer because of their reddish and yellowness. Expand
Carcass and commercial cuts yield in broilers of different ages fed diets supplemented with probiotics
TLDR
The carcass and commercial cuts weights and yields in broilers of different ages fed diets supplemented with probiotics were determined and the use of probiotic in broiler diet had significant effects on whole breast, breast fillets, and front back weights. Expand
Effect of slaughter age on performance and meat quality of slow-growing broiler chickens
TLDR
The longest duration of rearing had an effect on carcass and meat quality and the highest, statistically significant differences in the analysed traits were found between chickens slaughtered at 56 and 84 days of age. Expand
CARCASS QUALITY OF BROILER CHICKENS OF TWO HYBRID LINE SLAUGHTERED IN DIFFERENT AGE
TLDR
Female broiler chickens in comparison with male chickens had a better dressing percentage at all kinds of dressing, but those differences were not statistically significant, while differences in carcass mass and dressing percentage under the influence of mixture composition were almost insignificant. Expand
Effects of Two Planes of Nutrition on Performance and Uniformity of Four Strains of Broiler Chicks
TLDR
The data indicate that uniformity may be negatively impacted by a lower than NRC plane of nutrition, but careful application of low protein diets along with selection of an appropriate processing age will minimize the negative impact. Expand

Production and Carcass Characteristics of the Broiler Chicken
TLDR
Food intake and body weights of sexed broiler chickens offered commercial diets were recorded weekly throughout a 70-day trial to provide a base for researchers concerned with model building and systems production. Expand
Broiler Profit Maximizing Models
Abstract Broiler profit models were developed utilizing a matrix of feed conversion coefficients by weight interval and by energy level of the diet. The models maximized profit over feed costsExpand
