Estimates of genetic gains and present performance of layers and broilers were reviewed. Current and developing technologies pertinent to the breeding of layers and broilers were discussed with some of their assumptions and limitations. Under present methods, contemporary theory and selection technologies are critiqued Under developing technologies, selection for adaptation to production environments, multiple stage selection, and molecular techniques for poultry improvement are discussed
