Abstract

Guinea fowl hens were inseminated weekly once with two doses of spermatozoa (75 million and 100 million) in two different diluents, Beltsville poultry semen extender (BPSE), and Instruments for Veterinary Medicine (IMV), each with and without pre-insemination vaginal douching. Per cent fertility,...

Abstract

This paper reviews methods for quantifying breeding efficiency in poultry and the application of these techniques for monitoring commercial breeder flocks. It is suggested that breeding efficiency can be best quantified by estimating the numbers of sperm that interact with the egg in the...

Abstract

The fertility of hens inseminated by the tube method was consistently higher than those inseminated by the glass rod or syringe methods. The use of a common tube for all hens or a clean tube for each hen gave similar fertility, suggesting that prevention of spread of infectious organisms was not a...

Abstract

Artificial insemination was tried out in an effort to make blue grouse (Dendragapus obscurus fuliginosus Ridgway) fulfil their potential as a laboratory animal. Three hens that had laid at least 2 or 3 eggs before A.I. were successfully inseminated using modifications of techniques developed for...

Abstract

Massage, collection of semen in plastic containers and insemination into the oviduct are described. In 76 domestic and 10 turkey hens resp., the percentage of fertilized eggs obtained by the method described was 92.09 and 84.20%.

Abstract

With the " Hiroshima" technique the ♀ is restrained in a special bird holder which suspends the bird so that its abdomen is fully exposed and can easily be massaged. Semen is collected in a special funnel-shaped receptacle which is attached over the vent. There are photographs of the apparatus, and ...

Abstract

12 quail hens were inseminated with 0.0O5 ml. quail semen and 52 with 0.02 ml. Brown Leghorn semen, using a modification of the intra-uterine method of Ogasawara and Huang [see A.B.A., 32, No. 2494]. The oviduct was everted until the egg shell was visible; the tip of the inseminating cannula was...

Abstract

The increase in egg fertility that can be brought about by means of A.I. varies with different birds, but may be considerable. Artificial insemination can be used either alone or in combination with natural mating. In the latter case, the toms are removed from the hens for a few days at the...

Abstract

The technique involved was essentially that of Quinn and Burrows [see A. B. A., 4: 351], only it was adapted to allow hens to be inseminated without removal from their cages. When the new method was used on hens of IOW or intermediate fertility, better results were obtained than with the old...

Abstract

The previous published symposium dealt with those aspects of the hen's egg which affect its quality as a food product. This latest one deals exclusively with the egg's reproductive function, and, as such, is concerned with those factors both intrinsic and extrinsic to the egg which affect its...
