  1. Note – Values are presented by the least squares means ± standard error. *Overall significance value for an effect of the genotype. The superscripts lacking a common lowercase differ significantly (P < 0.05). The superscripts lacking a common uppercase differ great significantly (P < 0.01). BW = body weight (g); CW = carcass weight (g); SEW = semi-eviscerated weight; EW = eviscerated weight; BMW = breast muscle weight (g); LMW = leg muscle weight (g); % indicates these traits relative to CW.
