Abstract

The addition of chicken egg yolk to semen extenders is thought to reduce the fertilizing potential of rooster spermatozoa - but not (or at least not as much) that of other avian species. The aim of the present study was to determine whether quail egg yolk, a novel extender additive, provides...

Abstract

The experiment was conducted on 16 drakes, 8 from each of two Polish duck conservation flocks: crossbreds of Khaki Campbell ducks with Orpington fauve (KhO-01) and Miniducks (K2), developed by crossing low weight Pekin ducks with wild Mallard. The aim of the study was to determine and compare the...

Abstract

In order to introduce artificial insemination (AI) for genetic and offspring improvement in turkey population, viable sperm concentration (VSC) was used to choose the breeding males. In addition, technological definitions were established as the timetable frequency, as well as the sperm dose and...
