Abstract

The primary purpose of this paper is to consider the interrelationship of the egg records of various periods during the second laying year of the White Leghorn fowl. It is, therefore, a continuation of earlier investigations in this general field, which have, of necessity, been limited to a consideration of the relationship between the periods of the first or pullet year (Harris and others, 1917–1921). While our primary purpose has been the investigation of the correlations for the second laying year, these interrelationships can be fully understood only when considered in comparison with the like coefficients for the first year. Fortunately the extensive data of the Vineland International Egg Laying and Breeding Contest permits the consideration of the complete first and second year record of 443 individual White Leghorn birds. Our problem is, therefore, to consider all of the more important correlations between the egg records of . . .
