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

Eggs from young turkey breeder hens have a higher rate of early embryonic mortality (EEM) than eggs from older hens. Preliminary field data indicated that increased sperm concentration decreased the incidence of EEM in eggs from young hens. Possible explanations for decreased EEM following ...

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...

AbstractFull Text

Cryopreservation of domestic animal spermatozoa has been widely used for artificial insemination and egg yolk is one of the most commonly used cryoprotectants during the freezing-thawing process. The aim of the present study was to compare the effectiveness of different duck egg yolk (DEY)...

Abstract

This paper reviews methods for quantifying breeding efficiency in poultry and the application of these techniques for monitoring commercial breeder flocks. It is suggested that breeding efficiency can be best quantified by estimating the numbers of sperm that interact with the egg in the...

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...

Abstract

Dark Cornish and Silver Cornish hens were mated either naturally or by artificial insemination with Mongolian × Ringneck pheasant ♂♂. Of 1409 eggs examined, 3.48% showed development when incubated. It is thought, however, that in some cases the development was parthenogenetic and not a result of...

Abstract

THE method of artificial insemination with mixed semen from several ♂♂ is considered expedient for achieving improvement of egg production by heterosis, as it ensures a constancy of the genetic constitution of those populations within pure breeds which have proved suitable for such improvement....
