Abstract: The aim of this study was to compare the effect of high (33-degrees-C) and normal (33-20-degrees-C) rearing temperature on growth and plasma levels of the somatotrophic hormones of 2 genetic lines of broiler chickens selected for 6-wk body weight (GL-line) or for feed conversion between 3 and 6 wk of age (FC-line) or for feed conversion between 3 and 6 wk of age (FC-line). Blood samples were collected weekly and analysed for growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factors ((IGF)-I and II levels by RIA.
