An investigation was undertaken to compare the effect of sex separate rearing on the carcass characteristics of broiler chicken. Total 180-day old commercial chicks were divided into three treatment groups viz. mixed sex, male and female with three replicates in each. Dressed yield was significantly higher in male (71.56 ± 0.01) compared to mixed-sex (70.22 ± 0.05) and female (69.31 ± 0.07). Highest liver yield was observed in male (1.74 ± 0.13) than female (1.66 ± 0.03) and mixed sex (1.33 ± 0.03). Significantly higher giblet value was observed in male (3.17 ± 0.14) followed by female (3.06 ± 0.07) and mixed-sex (2.70 ± 0.05) respectively. The highest neck yield was observed in mixed-sex (5.43± 0.24) compared to male (4.82 ± 0.10) and female (4.54 ± 0.12) and female (36.03±0.68) showed highest breast yield compared to mixed-sex (36.02 ± 0.58) and male (33.75 ± 0.79).
