Abstract

Semen from Rhode Island Red ♂♂ was used to inseminate 20 white-egg females. The vitelline membrane of eggs laid 2-21 days after a single insemination were examined for spermatozoa. The decline in number of spermatozoa in the vitelline membrane with increasing interval after insemination was...

Abstract

In trials of single-sex feeding in broiler fowls, body weight of ♂♂ fed separately from ♀♀ did not differ from that of controls (♂♂ fed with ♀♀). At 40 wk of age, the incidence of infertility in separately fed ♂ broilers was 1.1%, compared with 6.1% in controls. Hatchability in controls at 40 wk...

Abstract

24 groups, each of 32 dwarf pullets and 3 normal-sized cockerels, were fed ad lib. during the rearing period or were restricted to a body weight at 20 wk of 1.4 or 1.8 kg. During the breeding period, they were fed ad lib., or given 80 or 90% of the food consumed by the ad lib. group. Restricted...

Abstract

Semen from 55 dwarf cocks was used to inseminate 288 dwarf hens after 24 and 48 h storage in still tubes, or in still or constantly shaken Erlenmeyer flasks. Fertility was higher (P <0.01) with semen stored for 24 h (88.9-95%) than for semen stored for 48 h (54.7-93.3%). Hatchability was...

Abstract

A discussion of evidence that selection of broiler fowls for leanness produces rapid reduction in body fat content, is accompanied by improvement in feed and protein conversion efficiency, and has no significant adverse effects on meat quality.

Abstract

Males and ♀♀ of 2 types of Norwegian commercial broiler hybrids were slaughtered at 5 ages (46-48 birds per slaughter age). Computer tomograph scans were taken at the anterior and posterior ends of the sternum, to show the pectoralis muscles and the abdominal fat depots resp. Principal component...
