Abstract

The frequency of insemination in hens affects the costs associated with artificial insemination in poultry. A reduced frequency implies a larger insemination interval and therefore a reduction in costs. The objective of the study was therefore to assess the effect of insemination intervals on...

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

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

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the optimum number of spermatozoa for highest fertility in Ross-308 broiler breeder chicken. About 24 Ross hens in 4 treatment groups were used. Semen was collected from 8 Ross roosters by abdominal massage and pooled in glass tube. After initially dilution ...

Abstract

Probable involvement of avidin and avidin-related protein-2 (AVR2) in sperm viability in the sperm storage tubules of turkeys has been suggested. The high affinity of biotin to avidin and its analogs is also well documented. The present study aimed to determine the effect of oral biotin on...

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

The immxinisation of hens with semen (intravenous injection) or a semen + adjuvant emulsion (intramuscular injection) did not significantly lower egg fertility for 2-7 days after insemination compared with that in non-immunised controls, but 8-14 days after insemination fertility was significantly...

Abstract

Hens were: (1) naturally mated, (2) inseminated with undiluted semen, or (3) inseminated with semen diluted with an oviduct extract and stored for 6 hr. Egg fertility of group 2 was greater than that of groups 1 and 3 by 6 and 10.13% resp. ; the corresponding figures for hatchability of eggs set...

Abstract

The previous published symposium dealt with those aspects of the hen's egg which affect its quality as a food product. This latest one deals exclusively with the egg's reproductive function, and, as such, is concerned with those factors both intrinsic and extrinsic to the egg which affect its...
