ABSTRACT

A study was conducted to evaluate the performance of high and low weight lines of F, backcross normal feather, naked neck and frizzle chicken in the humid tropics. Result revealed that HNL and HFL individuals weighed I 128.1g, I 108.3g which is significantly (p<0.05) more than low weight I ines counterparts, which weighed 579.6g, 566.7g respectively. Average daily feed intake (ADFI) was also significantly higher for the heavy lines with HNL which weighed highest consuming more feed than other lines. The linear body measurements were generally higher for the heavy weight lines except LNaL which had significantly longer body length than other lines. The growth co-efficient was high and positive for all genotypes although the HFL showed more uniform growth performance within the genetic groups. In general, mortality rates were high in the brooding phase than in the goring phase for all the genotypes. The HFL individual; had the highest mortality rates among the genotypes.
