Abstract

The objective of the present experiments was to produce the intergeneric hybrids of domesticated and wild goose via artificial insemination with fresh and frozen-thawed semen. The experiments were carried out during two successive goose reproductive seasons, on eight five-year-old Canada Goose (...

Abstract

The sperm storage tubules (SST) of the turkey hen, which are located in the uterovaginal junction (UVJ) of the oviduct, maintain viable sperm for up to 10 wk after a single insemination. The mechanisms of this in vivo sperm storage are poorly understood. Our objective was to evaluate mRNA and...

Abstract

The technique used in insemination of geese is described. In Chinese and Kholmogor ♂♂ resp., ejaculate volume averaged 0.28 and 0.24 ml, concentration of spermatozoa (x 103) 1.15 and 0.56/ml, and sperm motility 79.0 and 71.5%. In 191 Chinese, Kholmogor and crossbred ♀♀, fertilization of 1095 eggs...

Abstract

Over a long period, White Leghorn (W.L.), Barred Plymouth Rock (B.P.R.) and crossbred hens were repeatedly inseminated with semen from W.L., B.P.R. and White Cornish (W.C.) ♂♂. Egg fertility declined as the period of artificial breeding increased, particularly with W.C. ♂♂. Sperm agglutinin titre...

Abstract

MEANS for obtaining sperm by hand manipulation of roosters and turkeys is described in detail. 0.2-2 ml./day of a very concentrated sperm at pH 7.3-7.8 containing 50, 000-6, 000, 000 spermatozoa/ml, can be obtained from the rooster; only 0.1-0.8 ml./day can be collected from turkeys. Methods of...

Abstract

Five so-called Osaka ducks of the Pékin breed were artificially inseminated with semen from a Muscovy drake. The semen was obtained by electro-ejaculation and diluted 1: 10 with 0. 85% physiological saline solution. The insemination technique used has already been described [see A. B. A., 26, No....

Abstract

Crosses between Muscovy (Cairina moschata) drakes and ordinary domestic ducks are a very important source of meat in Formosa, but the percentage of fertile eggs obtained from natural matings is not more than about 60. In an attempt to improve fertility in this cross, domestic ducks were...

Abstract

Of 149 eggs obtained from 3 quails (Coturnix coturnix japónica) artificially inseminated with domestic fowl semen, 8 showed embryonic development. The stages of development reached, in terms of the equivalent development of normal quail embryos, were 2-3 days (5 embryos), 5 days (2 embryos) and...

Abstract

As A. I. is being used on a large scale at the Poultry Research Centre, Werribee, special techniques have been developed. These are briefly described. Using 0.2 cm. 3 semen diluted 1: 2 with Tyrode solution, fertility of 7175 Leghorn eggs was 82% v. 74.5% of 5272 eggs when 0.l cm. 3 undiluted semen ...
