Samples of three different muscles were collected from 20 chickens, 10 Kabir hybrids and 10 Ross hybrids that differ for growth speed. The aim of this study was to determine the muscle fibre characteristics of the animals and the percentage of giant fibres found in the muscles. Muscle fibre distribution, percentage of giant fibres and muscle fibre diameter were different in the two hybrids. In particular, Ross broiler chickens had a higher percentage of giant fibres than Kabir chickens, especially in the breast muscle (3.17% versus 0.56%).

Abstract

Samples of three different muscles were collected from 20 chickens, 10 Kabir hybrids and 10 Ross hybrids that differ for growth speed. The aim of this study was to determine the muscle fibre characteristics of the animals and the percentage of giant fibres found in the muscles. Muscle fibre distribution, percentage of giant fibres and muscle fibre diameter were different in the two hybrids. In particular, Ross broiler chickens had a higher percentage of giant fibres than Kabir chickens, especially in the breast muscle (3.17% versus 0.56%).
