Abstract: The effects of the dwarfing gene on somatotrophic (GH, IGF-I) and thyreotrophic (T-4, T-3) hormones and on energy metabolism in laying hens were studied. Leghorn laying hens (L) and brown-egg laying hens (BE) were used to investigate a possible influence of a genetic background on the expression of the dwarf gene. Birds came from the mating of heterozygous sires (Dwdw) with dwarf females (dw-) from pure lines (L x L, and BE x BE) and their reciprocal crosses. In this way hens were of a normal growth or carrying the dwarf gene and were full sisters or half sibs.
