Abstract:
In recent decades, the rate of weight gain of meat-type broiler chickens has increased significantly [25, 26]. In the 1960s, a commercial broiler chicken reached the market weight of 2.2 kg by 12 weeks of age; today, broilers attain this same market weight at less than 6 weeks. This impressive improvement is due to the knowledge accumulated by industry poultry managers and researchers from different disciplines - geneticists, nutritionists, physiologists and veterinarians - who have contributed to the optimisation of broiler performance.
