HERITABILITY OF PRODUCTION AND REPRODUCTION TRAITS IN COLORED SYNTHETIC BROILER BREEDER CHICKEN OF ODISHA, INDIA Research Article
Breeding program in Odisha was started in 1994 to improve productivity of coloured synthetic broiler breeder chicken. The pedigree in the current study descended from 69 sires and 552 dams. Genetic parameters were estimated using sire and dam component of variances for various production and reproduction traits after necessary corrections for hatch effects were done. Heritability in male was found to be 0.232 ± 0.615 for body weight at 5 th week while it was high (0.718 ± 0.129) in female. Agefatcat:ahmhj2ik3jfhjivn6vmtcpjkmy
