Animal labels F1 to F20 indicate the 20 fattest chickens, L1 to L20 the 20 leanest chickens and I1 to I5 the 5 intermediate chickens.

The two letters indicate the Q or q haplotype inherited from the sire, with a probability > 99% for the QTL at 84 cM (first column) or the QTL at 168 cM (second column); x indicates a probability < 99%. The probability of inheriting the paternal Q versus q haplotype was calculated by QTLMap software only on the basis of marker information in the region of interest.
