Experimental design. In G0, four females were fed a Met-deficient diet while four other females were fed a control diet. They were inseminated with semen of two Muscovy drakes in order to produce G1 drakes. A total of 25 G1 ducks of both sexes were raised, of which eight males were kept for reproduction, four from each diet group of the G0 dams. The procreation of the G2 mule ducks was performed by artificial insemination with the semen of G1 Muscovy drakes to common duck females. The procreation of G2 purebred Muscovy ducks was performed by artificially inseminating the semen of G1 Muscovy drakes to Muscovy females. Black: with Met-deficient diet, hatched: having an ancestor with Met-deficient diet, red: Muscovy duck, blue: Common duck, green: Mule duck. The number of individuals in each group is indicated
