Abstract

EXAMINATION of mucus scrapings from the inner surface of the oviduct of virgin hens after natural copulation, artificial insemination, or intraperitoneal injection of semen, indicates that spermatozoa are to be found only in the infundibulum and not in any other locality after periods of more than...

Abstract

RHODE Island Red pullets were divided into 3 approx. equal groups, group I being artificially inseminated in the early morning, group II at noon, and group III in the late afternoon. Each bird was inseminated once with 1 cm.3 mixed semen from the same ♂♂; and 869 eggs were incubated. Fertility was...

Abstract

Semen was collected from 72 cocks during the year Oct. 1948-Sep. 1949. The cock spermatozoon consists of a head, which is needle-shaped, 10 µ long and 1 µ in diameter, and with an acrosome at the tip, a middle piece 5 µ long, and a tail 100 µ long. The av. volume per ejaculate was 0.76 ml. ; it...

Abstract

Investigations were made to determine the fundamental causes of loss of fertilising ability of spermatozoa during the period between artificial collection of the semen and the insemination of the hen. The application of cytochemical tests to spermatozoa at succeeding intervals of time in vitro...

Abstract

As A. I. is being used on a large scale at the Poultry Research Centre, Werribee, special techniques have been developed. These are briefly described. Using 0.2 cm. 3 semen diluted 1: 2 with Tyrode solution, fertility of 7175 Leghorn eggs was 82% v. 74.5% of 5272 eggs when 0.l cm. 3 undiluted semen ...

Abstract

THE new method evolved [A.B.A., 3: 291], in which the orifice of the oviduct is exposed for the direct reception of the semen, has given entirely satisfactory results. The dose injected was 0.2 c.c. of fresh undiluted semen. In crosses of Silkies or Rhode Island Red/Silkies with Rhode Island...

Owing to a severe outbreak of fowl pest in Britain when the 1950. 51 trials were due to begin, the introduction of the competing cockerels to the trial premises was forbidden. In order that the progeny test for 1951 might go on, it was decided to produce the pullets by artificial insemination. As...
