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

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, ...

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

Semen was collected from 72 cocks during the year Oct. 1948-Sep. 1949. The cock spermatozoon consists of a head, which is needle-shaped, 10 µ long and 1 µ in diameter, and with an acrosome at the tip, a middle piece 5 µ long, and a tail 100 µ long. The av. volume per ejaculate was 0.76 ml. ; it...

Abstract

THIS experiment was designed to ascertain the relationship between fertility and hatchability. Sixteen young White Leghorn pullets and 22 hens, both old and young, from heavy breeds were employed. They were kept in laying-batteries and were artificially inseminated with fresh semen by means of...

Abstract

Owing to a severe outbreak of fowl pest in Britain when the 1950. 51 trials were due to begin, the introduction of the competing cockerels to the trial premises was forbidden. In order that the progeny test for 1951 might go on, it was decided to produce the pullets by artificial insemination. As...
