Question about Drosophila lab practical

I have to prepare a lab practical for university students on quantitative genetics using Drosophila, but I am not really an expert in this system. I was thinking about selecting for the increase and decrease of the number of bristles during a number of generations and stimating the resulting heredability. Does anyone know if that is feasible, and if there is any place in the body of the fly particularly well suited for doing that measure?. 
Thank you in advance.
