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

In birds, after natural mating or artificial insemination (AI), sperms are transported through cloaca or vagina at the utero-vaginal junction (UVJ) of oviduct. Only 1% of the deposited sperm passes through the selection process in the vagina to reach the UVJ. In the UVJ, sperm enter the tubular...

Abstract

Lactobacillus resides in the hen's gastrointestinal tract, vagina and cloaca. When fed to hens, Lactobacillus has improved egg weight, size and shell strength. However, data from our lab suggests Lactobacillus may be detrimental to semen and possibly fertility. Therefore, the objective of this...

Abstract

In this study, whether the secretion of the uterine fluid (UF) exerts a role in the prolongation of functional life-span of the sperm in the hen oviduct was evaluated. The sperm were subjected to upper vaginal artificial insemination (AI) in the vicinity of the utero-vaginal junction (UVJ) under...

Abstract

Glycerol (GLY) and egg yolk (EY) are good cryoprotectants of avian and mammalian sperm, but in birds, they strongly inhibit the eventual fertilization of ova. Using the sperm penetration (SP-holes) assay and fertility trials, the present study investigates (1) the possible mechanism by which this...

Abstract

Egg yolk is one of the most widely used cryoprotective components for sperm preservation and a wide range of factors affect its action on sperm motility, viability and fertilizing ability. The aim of this experiment was to determine the effect of different species egg yolk, namely the domestic...

Abstract

The method of semen collection and instruments used are described. Ejaculate volume averaged 0.3 ml. (0.15-0.40) and the av. number of spermatozoa per ml. semen was 7 x 109 (6.5 × 109-7.5 × 109); good quality semen was creamy-white and opaque. Up to 91.15% fertile eggs were obtained when the semen...

Abstract

90 White Leghorn (W.L.) ♀♀ were inseminated with semen from 2 W.L. and 2 Red White-tailed ♂♂ Egg fertility in the periods 2-6 and 2-11 days after insemination was 86.8 and 64.0% resp. from vaginal inseminations, and 68.4 and 52.9% from intra-peritoneal inseminations; corresponding figures for...

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

Large-type White turkey hens from a flock with a record of low " fertility " (live embryos at 7-10 days' incubation) were distributed randomly into 4 groups of 50 hens each and were given treatments involving antibiotics and inseminations on a weekly or fortnightly schedule. During the first 5 wks, ...
