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,...

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

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...

Abstract

Artificial insemination with fresh sperm is used in the reproduction of Numida meleagris. Currently there are sperm extenders in birds artificial insemination, among them the powdered coconut water (ACP-108). This study explored data hatching eggs of Numida meleagris artificially inseminated with...

Abstract

This experiment was conducted to study the effects of egg yolk plasma (10%, 15% and 20%), soybean lecithin (0.5%, 1% and 1.5%) and whole egg yolk (WEY) (control) on post-thawed sperm quality, hatchability and fertility outcomes. In experiment 1, sperm motility, abnormalities, membrane integrity,...

Abstract

The ability to produce viable progeny is a complex trait, involving both male and female components. In poultry, mating ratios are usually 1 male to 6 to 12 females. Consequently, the impact of male reproductive failure is much greater than that for a female. In this study, the genetic...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate factors related to hatching ability of Betong chicken. The 30-week-old Betong chicken was divided into 2 groups each of 10 dam and 4 sires with the same age was pooled semen. The sperm number using in artificial insemination were diluted 100 million...

Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the effect of D-Aspartic acid (D-Asp) on post-thawed sperm quality, fertility and hatchability outcomes in male broiler breeders. Twenty 55-week-old roosters were selected and equally split into four groups (n=5 rooster/group). Different daily D-Asp doses...
