AbstractFull Text

Aseel, a famous chicken breed, has problems of low fertility that leads to poor hatchability. In commercial breeder setups, the hatchability issues are being addressed by fresh semen artificial insemination (AI). The success of AI mainly depends on semen quality and its life in female reproductive...
