The response to two generations of selection to increase eight-week body weight was observed in normal bodied (AAG) and in dwarf-bodied (D2) broiler- breeder population. Strain AAG originated from crossing strain A and strain AG (Dev et al., 1969). Population D2 was closely related to AAG strain. One sub-line (B) in each population was selected for superior eight-week body weight and other sub-line was selected for superior body weight of prospective sires and superior egg weight of dams.
