Short summary
The results of analyses of hematological and biochemical blood serum markers demonstrate that the fast-growing FG turkeys, compared to the slow-growing SG birds and their reciprocal crosses (SF and FS), exhibit a stronger response to stress induced by pre- and post-slaughter handling. Among the crosses, more susceptible to stress stimuli are the SF turkeys, which is confirmed by a higher concentration of TP H, a lower concentration of L, and resultantly a higher H / L ratio in their blood serum.
