Static Method: out = ChickWeight ()

Weight versus age of chicks on different diets



a numeric vector giving the body weight of the chick (gm).


a numeric vector giving the number of days since birth when the measurement was made.


an ordered factor with levels 18 < ... < 48 giving a unique identifier for the chick. The ordering of the levels groups chicks on the same diet together and orders them according to their final weight (lightest to heaviest) within diet.


a factor with levels 1, ..., 4 indicating which experimental diet the chick received.
