Abstract

Female birds store sperm in sperm storage tubules (SSTs) in the uterovaginal junction of their reproductive tract for days or weeks (depending on species) before fertilization. Sperm are transported from the SSTs to the infundibulum where fertilization occurs immediately after ovulation of each...

Abstract

Located at the anterior end of the turkey hen's vagina are numerous discrete tubular invaginations of the surface epithelium, collectively referred to as the sperm storage tubules (SSTs). After mating or artificial insemination, sperm ascend the vagina, enter the SSTs, and over the ensuing days and ...

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

As A. I. is being used on a large scale at the Poultry Research Centre, Werribee, special techniques have been developed. These are briefly described. Using 0.2 cm. 3 semen diluted 1: 2 with Tyrode solution, fertility of 7175 Leghorn eggs was 82% v. 74.5% of 5272 eggs when 0.l cm. 3 undiluted semen ...

Abstract

BROWN and White Leghorns were artifically inseminated with normal semen, dead stained sperm, or carbon particles, and after various periods killed and smears of various parts of the oviduct examined. It was found that the sperm could reach the ovary in about 26 mins. If, however, an ovum was in the ...
