Abstract In this study the effect of two growth patterns and three different dietary protein levels during the rearing period of broiler breeders was investigated. Applying a low protein diet results in a changed body composition (less breast meat and more abdominal fat) and positive effects on behaviour during rear. Applying a high growth pattern had only slight effects on performance and behaviour. Hardly any carryover effects of the treatments during the rearing period were observed during the laying period.
