Introduction The improvement of genetic selection and management practices are increased dramatically for the last decades (Kryeziu et al., 2018), stocking density of broilers is one of the major factors that can improve performance to face the improvement of genetic selection (Simsek et al., 2011). Stocking density has a significant impact on production cost, however, excessive density may aff...

Dr Basheer, congratulations to the authors for the study conducted. However, I would like to make a consideration .For the researched subject, I think it would be important to inform the environmental conditions that the birds were exposed to during the study, although general considerations were made in the conclusion. This detail also reveals the relevance of environmental conditions for this type of work.

Dear Dr. Juarez Donzele,

Thank you for your point, this is a valid point. Environmental temperature varied based on the age of the bird. Ambient house temperature was around 20 C starting at 21 days up to the end of trial.

Hopefully this helps!

Dr. Basheer Nusairat, I complement for your detailed study
But, what about breed character, the carcass yield of Ross is always more compared to other breeds provided optimal room temperatures, There is variation in FCR also, we need to consider in broiler production
