1. Two experiments were undertaken for 3 or 5 d in respiration chambers, on two experimental lines of broiler chickens (aged 25-38 d) selected for leanness and fatness. Diets were without or with 0.4 mg cimaterol per kg. 2. The lean line with sexes combined (experiment 1), or with females only, had a significantly greater heat production than the fat line. Net availability of metabolisable energy for gain (kg) was 0.54 for the lean birds and and 0.84 for the fat birds. 3. Cimaterol did not have an effect on any of the variables examined.
