Body size is essential as an indicator of growth in the economic trait. The objective of this study was to evaluate the chicken selection between crossbred chickens and their parental groups using body size variables. This study used 5 Murung Panggang chickens (parental males) and 131 crossbred chickens (BS chickens). The BS chickens were divided into two groups namely BS3 and BS6. BS chicken groups were obtained from the crossing of Murung Panggang (males) x KUB 1 (females) to form BS3 and Murung Panggang x KUB 2 (females) to form BS6. The variables included breast width, shank length, breast circumference, and wing length. Chickens were measured five times at weeks 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10. The data obtained were statistically analysed by T-test to determine the differences between BS3 and BS6 chickens. The results showed that the body size of the BS6 was higher than BS3. However, both of their body size were decreased compared to the parental male in each variable. Meanwhile, the wing length size was increased for the BS3 chickens at 10 weeks of age and BS6 chickens at the age of 2, 6, 8, and 10 weeks.
