Abstract

All eggs laid by hens with which the peacock attempted mating were sterile. Artificial insemination was tried with 6 hens which received 49 inseminations of peacock sperm. Out of 73 eggs only two, laid by one Orpington hen, were fertilized. One hybrid chick hatched on the 25th day. The down was a...

Abstract

EXAMINATION of sperm of 30 cocks, using the scale of Moore, demonstrated that the grade of motility is lowest in the testes, i.e. X, greater in the epididymis, X X or x X X, and highest in the vas deferens, viz. X X X X. When the sperm was artificially inseminated into infertile ♀♀, after dilution...

Abstract

ARTIFICIAL insemination was used in an attempt to produce reciprocal hybrids. Rhode Island Red and White Leghorn hens inseminated with sperm from Bronze turkey produced only one egg that contained an embryo, abnormal in size and shape. A Bronze ♀ inseminated with Rhode Island Red sperm laid an egg...

Abstract

SEMEN was obtained from 12 F2 Bronze ♂ × White Holland ♀ hybrid ♂♂. The quantities varied from 0.1-0.7 c.c., but the majority of ♂♂ yielded 0.3-0.4 c.c. The semen is more viscous than that of the domestic cock and is yellowish white in colour. Four groups, each of 8 turkey hens, were inseminated...

Abstract

THE method of artificial insemination with mixed semen from several ♂♂ is considered expedient for achieving improvement of egg production by heterosis, as it ensures a constancy of the genetic constitution of those populations within pure breeds which have proved suitable for such improvement....

Abstract

COCK sperm was obtained by electro-ejaculation (D.C., 4 volts), one terminal being introduced subcutaneously in the region of the 3rd lumbar vertebra, the other inserted into the cloaca. The current was passed for periods of 3 sees., with intervals of 6 sees., and ejaculation usually occurred after ...

Abstract

MIXED semen from 30 White Leghorn cocks was used to inseminate 257 hens, either undiluted or diluted with Ringer's solution to give sperm concentrations of 30%, 10%, and 2%. The 10% concentration gave as good results as, and the 30% concentration better results than undiluted sperm, while 2% sperm...

Abstract

This article reviews three aspects of artificial insemination of chickens and turkeys, viz, (1) collection of semen, (2) insemination of females, and (3) storage of semen. The most satisfactory method of obtaining semen was found to be the direct milking of the semen from the bulbous ducts of the...

Abstract

COMPOSITE samples of semen from 6 Barred Rock ♂♂ were used to investigate the effects of osmotic pressure, viscosity of media, and t° on viability of spermatozoa. Dehydration by dilution with 0.5 to 0.75 M. laevulose solution appeared to lengthen the life of the spermatozoa (266-290 hrs.' storage)...
