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,...

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

With the " Hiroshima" technique the ♀ is restrained in a special bird holder which suspends the bird so that its abdomen is fully exposed and can easily be massaged. Semen is collected in a special funnel-shaped receptacle which is attached over the vent. There are photographs of the apparatus, and ...

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

AFTER a comprehensive 28-page review of literature relevant to the artificial insemination of birds and the storage of sperm in vivo in the oviduct of the hen, the author gives a detailed account of his own work on the intraperitoneal insemination of pigeons and fowls and of his observations on...

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....

Abstract

This article reviews three aspects of artificial insemination of chickens and turkeys, viz, (1) collection of semen, (2) insemination of females, and (3) storage of semen. The most satisfactory method of obtaining semen was found to be the direct milking of the semen from the bulbous ducts of the...
