Assessment of Funaab Alpha Broiler Chicken of Genetic Gain For Breast Girth

                                      ABSTRACT

This experiment was conducted to estimate and study the genetic gain (ΔG) of FUNAAB Alpha broiler chicken that was selected mainly for breast girth at week 0 to week 10, to provide support for genetic improvement. A total of 200 FUNAAB Alpha broiler chicken were sourced for and fed ad libitum. Data were collected at the end of 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th and 10th week; birds/strain was selected from both strains. The initial breast girth of the chicks was taken at day old using a tape rule. Subsequently, their breast girth was taken every 2 weeks to week 10 and all data collected were subjected to one way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and Mean separation was done using tukey variation contained in SAS (2010). the effect of genotype was observed to had significant effect (P
