Use of iridodiagnosis for selecting meat chickens for viability


Meat chickens of the parent flock of the Konkurent-3 cross are assessed by the iris of their eyes (iridodiagnosis). Three types of iris—radial, radial homogeneous, and radial lacunar—are found and their frequency is determined. The relation between this trait and viability of parents and offspring is studied.
