Abstract
Compensatory growth refers to the ability of an animal, which has been retarded in growth, to resume its growth at a rate greater than that normal for animals of the same chronological age, when the restriction to growth is removed (Wilson and Osbourn, 1960). During the period of under nutrition, animals have been observed to revert towards their ancestral type (Waters, 1909), while the subsequent period of accelerated growth tends to return the animal to its normal condition (Osborne and Hendel, 1916).
