The plasma biochemical parameters such as protein, cholesterol and triglycerides were analyzed
in Black strain Japanese quails and found as 4.10 g/dl, 150.72 mg/dl and 90.66 mg/dl, respectively.Sex had significant effect on plasma cholesterol and triglycerides. Estimate of heritability and correlations ranged from low to high in magnitude.
