.ReciProcal crosses were made between an inbred brown eggshell line and an inbred white shell line. The FIs were backcrossed to parental lines and DNA from parents and backcross progeny were tested for polymorphisms using RAPD primers. Sixteen polymorphic bands out of 100 primers were found, including fourteen autosomal and two sex-linked. These markers will be used m future studies of these lines for detection of QTLs for egg production traits.
