In the new vision of the EU, quality and quality control require monitoring food products from the stage of obtaining the raw materials to the final consumer. According to the own research undertaken in this work which had aimed the study of quality indicators of poultry meat, absolutely required at EU level, as a result of the existence of a free trade of food products within the European Union. Thus, in assessing the quality of carcasses from the point of view expressed above, the specific parameters were taken and analyzed for two genetic types, in two consecutive years and different seasons. The water content of the carcass has different values at the two genetic types analyzed. In season 1, the year I was determined a value of 64.5316 ± 0.4106 percent at ROSS 308 and 65.1820 ± 0.3724 percent at COBB 500, the differences observed between the two hybrids are statistically nonsignificant. In season 2, it was determined a value of 64.4656 ± 0.3989 percent at ROSS 308 and 65.5412 ± 0.3442 percent at COBB 500, the differences are significant from the statistical point of view. In season 1 of the second year of the experiment, at the ROSS 308 hybrids of the average water content was 64.4264 ± 0.3807 percent, while COBB 500 66.3212 ± 0.3051 percent, statistically significant. Season 2 reveals the existence of close values of the average content of water in the two seasons, those two hybrids being taken into question.
