The relationship between live weight, age and slaughtering traits of Muscovy drake (MD) per common duck (PD) hybrids, were analyzed to determine their characteristics. Results showed that the sexual dimorphism is reduced, the growth rate is rapid, the adult weight (g2850) is intermediate between the weight of MD and PD; at 10 wk of age the breast + thigh and leg muscles have an high incidence on the carcass (43.8%) and the abdominal fats are limited (g17).

Abstract

The relationship between live weight, age and slaughtering traits of Muscovy drake (MD) per common duck (PD) hybrids, were analyzed to determine their characteristics. Results showed that the sexual dimorphism is reduced, the growth rate is rapid, the adult weight (g2850) is intermediate between the weight of MD and PD; at 10 wk of age the breast + thigh and leg muscles have an high incidence on the carcass (43.8%) and the abdominal fats are limited (g17).
