Özet

This study was carried out to investigate the effect of short-term divergent selection for 5-week body weight on growth characteristics of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) and to compare these characteristics with the non-selected randombred control base population. For this aim, Gompertz growth curve model was fitted to body weight-age data of quails in each group.
