Resumen

SILVA, MAN et al. Resistance to Heat Stress of Naked Neck Broilers. Rev. Bras. Cienc. Avic. [online]. 2001, vol.3, n.1, pp.27-33. ISSN 1516-635X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-635X2001000100002.

Birds of two lineages, a carrier of the Naked Neck gene (Na_) that determines reduction in the feathering and other non-carrier (normal feathering, nana), were submitted to thermal stress (38, 40 and 42ºC) in climatic chambers at 28, 35 and 42 days of age to verify the resistance to the thermal stress. Significant differences were verified among the mean rectal temperature of the normal feathered lineage when compared with the naked neck lineage, in all the ages and stress periods, with higher values in the normal feathered birds. The same result was found for mean respiratory rate. Significant difference was found for weight loss between the two lineages only at the age of 35 days. The results obtained suggest that the Naked Neck lineage possesses higher resistance to the thermal stress in relation to the normal feathered lineage.

Palabras clave : thermal stress; resistance; broiler ; naked neck.
