The Majalaya and Punten stocks were significantly greater in body depth, intestine length and number of vertebrae than the other stocks. The body width of Majalaya was the highest of all the stocks. These two stocks have a smaller head. The Majalaya, Punten and Rayo showed low coefficients of variation in almost all mor phometric and meristic characters,
