  1. 1: TI = tonic immobility at 8–9 days of age; BT = rectal temperature at 5 weeks of age; BW1 = 5-wk body weight; FI = feed intake at 30 weeks of age; RFI = residual feed intake at 30 weeks of age; EW = egg weight at 30 weeks of age; YW = yolk weight; SW = eggshell weight; Y/A = ratio of yolk weight over albumen weight; AFE = age at first egg; EN = number of eggs laid until the age of 69 weeks; CL = clutch length; BW2 = 70-wk body weight.
