Response in the selected and the correlated traits from five generations of index selection (I.D.S. method) for egg production to 40 weeks of age in four White Leghorn populations have been presented. The correlated traits measured included: Age at first egg, egg weight, body weight and also derived traits such as egg mass, survivors' rate of lay, efficiency index and ratio of egg weight to body weight. Response realized for the selected trait was significant in three out of the four selected… CONTINUE READING
