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 objective of this study conducted was to determine the influence of different levels of sperm concentration, including catalase (CAT) and vitamin E (VitE) in rooster semen extender on postthawed quality and fertility of rooster semen. Semen was collected twice a week from six roosters (Arian)...

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

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

At present 45% of all unfertilized eggs undergo some development during incubation, 12-13% contain embryos, 34% of these embryos live 21 days or more, and 7% hatch. Most are weak or malformed. About 25% survive to maturity. All that were examined were males, and about 1/3 of these produced limited...

Abstract

THE semen is injected by a hypodermic syringe penetrating the skin in the ovarian region to a depth of 6-8 cm. depending on the size and conformation of the bird. An adequate dose is 0.05-0.l cm.3, which may be discharged in one place or spread over the area by moving the needle slightly. The risk...
