Abstract

Data on 1100 chicks of Van-Cob broiler strain produced from 160 dams and 30 sires were
used for genetic parameters estimation. The heritability estimates of body conformation traits were
low to moderate. Most of the genetic and phenotypic correlations of the traits were positive and
significant.
