Performance of Different Fast Growing Broiler Strains in Winter

M.S.K. Sarker, S.U. Ahmed , S.D.Chowdhury , M. A. Hamid and M. M. Rahman

Abstract:
Three hundred commercial broiler chicks of three different strains ( Arbor Acres, ISA Vedette and Hybro) each of 100 were reared from day-old to 6 weeks of age to compare their performance characteristics under Bangladesh condition in winter. Body weight gain and feed consumption up to 6 weeks of age were significantly higher in ISA Vedette than in Arbor Acres and Hybro. There was no significant difference between Arbor Acres and Hybro with respect to these variables. Survivability and feed efficiency among the strains were non-significant, although Arbor Acres showed slightly higher survivability than Hybro and ISA Vedette. Despite a slightly higher livability in Arbor Acres, it may be concluded that ISA Vedette may perform the best in winter than in Hybro and Arbor Acres. The later two strains may also be recommended for commercial boiler production in winter, but priority may be given to ISA Vedette strain.
