Abstract

At present 45% of all unfertilized eggs undergo some development during incubation, 12-13% contain embryos, 34% of these embryos live 21 days or more, and 7% hatch. Most are weak or malformed. About 25% survive to maturity. All that were examined were males, and about 1/3 of these produced limited...

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 number of eggs laid by fifty 7- to 9-mth-old hens of each of 10 breeds or types was recorded hourly for 14 days. 50 eggs of each breed laid during the periods 8-11 a.m., 11-2 p.m. and 2-5 p.m. were tested for fertility. Hens were artificially inseminated at 2 p.m. every 5 days. Laying rates are ...

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...

Abstract

An experiment in which groups of 14 Large-type White turkey ♀♀ were inseminated during a 12-wk. period with varying amounts of undiluted semen at intervals of 2 or 3 wks. showed that eggs from hens inseminated with 1/100 ml. semen every 3 wks. did not differ significantly in fertility from eggs...

Abstract

White Leghorn and New Hampshire virgin pullets were naturally mated or artificially inseminated for a 3-wk. period. The number of pullets showing blood serum agglutination titres against spermatozoa was greater after mating than before. Birds which had an egg fertility > 90% throughout the year had ...

Abstract

No significant correlation was observed between, the % fertility of eggs laid by artificially inseminated turkey hens and the amount of semen used. Inseminations were made at 3-weekly intervals with doses of mixed, undiluted semen varying from 0.005 cm.3 to 0.10 cm.3 The egg fertility of birds...

Abstract

A method is described for the collection of semen and the artificial insemination of domestic poultry. The method of collection is substantially that described by BURROWS & QUINN (1937) and the insemination of the hen is carried out by injecting the semen directly into the oviduct. Over a period of ...

Laying hens were given a diet with low vitamin E, 2.54 mg per 100 g with 10% treated safflower oil, alone or supplemented with 16 mg vitamin E per lb, 0.0125% ethoxyquin, or both. After artificial insemination twice weekly during 12 weeks the fertility of all birds was above 95%. Average...
