Figure 1

Boxplot showing the median, minimum, maximum, 25th and 75th percentile values of body weight of Potchefstroom Koekoek hens. 

Figure 2

Heat map of phenotypic correlation of body weight and body measurement traits of Potchefstroom koekoek chicken genotype. Pearson correlation colour illustration, a high correlation is red, mid correlation is white and low correlation is blue. Body weight: BW, Beak length: BKL, Body length: BDL, Keel length: KL, Chest circumference: CC, Toe length: TL, Body girth: BG, Shank length: SL, Back length: BCL, Shank circumference: SC, Wing length: WL, * significant at p < 0.05, ** significant at p < 0.01 and ns not significant.
