Response to ten generations of divergent selection for tibial dyschondroplasia in broiler chickens: growth, egg production, and hatchability.

Abstract

Continued genetic selection for improved BW gain has met an obstacle of skeletal disorders in broiler chickens. Two broiler chicken lines (HTD and LTD) were developed by 10 generations of divergent selection for tibial dyschondroplasia (TD) incidence originating from commercial primary breeders. The reference population was a randombred control line… (More)
