Abstract

For the past 50 yr, practices for ex situ preservation of endangered breeds have been extended. Semen and primordial germ cells, gonadic tissues have been frozen to create genetic stocks of chicken genetic diversity in cryobanks. Semen cryopreservation stays the preferred method since it is not...

Abstract

The aim of the present study was the establishment of an effective protocol for cryopreservation of psittacine semen. Therefore, pooled semen samples of 30 cockatiels (Nymphicus hollandicus) were diluted with modified Lake diluent (1:4), partitioned into four equal parts. Three portions were mixed...

Abstract

Artificial insemination is commonly used in breeder farms to stabilize fertility. Hens are able to store sperm for a long time and remain fertile, so that they can extend the chicken insemination interval, and thus achieve better economic benefits. In this paper, dwarf brown-shell laying hens were...

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

Artificial insemination (AI) in vitro had been pioneered by Russian scientist V.P. Vrassky (1855) and later has been developed and advanced by I.I. Ivanov. The latter has been the first who inseminated hens artificially with the sperm obtained from the seminal ducts of slaughtered cocks (1902). AI...

AbstractFull Text

Morphological characteristics of turkey Meleagris gallopavo semen were recorded and hatchability percentages of the artificially inseminated hens were assessed. To study the effect of natural mating on hatchability 15 (3♂, 12♀) M. gallopavo were randomly selected, were kept separately and were...

Abstract

The generation of transgenic chickens is of both biomedical and agricultural significance, and recently chicken transgenesis technology has been greatly advanced. However, major issues still exist in the efficient production of transgenic chickens. This study was designed to optimize the production ...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) technology use in poultry production has enabled the rapid dissemination of genetic material from a small number of superior males to a high number of females. Excellent fertility in poultry can be obtained by AI compared to natural mating. Successful application of...
