  • Onset of Sexual Maturity in Female Chickens is Genetically Linked to Loci Associated with Fecundity and a Sexual Ornament. Onset of sexual maturity was ascertained by palpating the cloaca of each female once per week. The females were considered sexually mature when an approximate 2.5cm gap was observed between the left and right Tuber ischii. (ref: WrigRubi2012)


  • Males are assume to differ from females by {p_Am} only
