Abstract:

Performances of two genotypes of broiler chicken were evaluated under intensive system of management for different growth and carcass traits. The genotypes were (i) Group-I: Colored synthetic broiler (CSML ♂ x CSFL ♀) crosses; (ii) Group-II: (Hansli x CSML) ♂ x CSML ♀ crosses. Significantly (p ≤ 0.05 or 0.01) higher body weight and weight gain was recorded in group-I at every stage from 1st to 8 week. Chicks in group-II showed significantly higher values for FCR at 2nd, 3rd, and 4th week. Chicks in group-I showed higher feed intake in every week compared to those in group-II and differences were found significant (P≤0.05 or 0.01) at 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th week of age. Group-I showed mortality of 1.66% where as in group-II had zero mortality. Chicks in group-II showed significantly (p≤0.01 or p≤0.05)) greater breast angle and beak length, while the chicks in group-I showed significantly (p≤0.01) greater body length, body girth, shank length, shank width and keel length at 6th week. At 8th week, chicks in group-II showed significantly (p≤0.05 or 0.01) lower values compared to those in group-I in respect of all parameters except for beak length and breast angle which was not differ significantly (p≥0.05).
