  1. Diagonal: heritability estimates. Lower triangle: phenotypic correlations. Upper triangle: genetic correlations. Standard errors of the estimates are in parentheses
  2. aFEW = first egg weight; EW32, EW36, EW40, EW44, EW48, EW52, EW56, EW60 = egg weight per four weeks from 32 to 60 week of age
