Results of crossing the Rhode Island Red and White Leghorn Breeds of poultry

The Journal of Agricultural Science (Impact Factor: 0.65). 03/1944; 34(02):76 - 81. DOI: 10.1017/S0021859600019754


Cross-mating had little effect on hatchability of fertile eggs. The fertile eggs from Rhode Island Red dams hatched better than those from White Leghorn dams. A suggestion is made that this may be associated with a difference of porosity in the eggs of the two breeds.(Received February 28 1944)
