Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the characteristics of the quail (Coturnix japonica) semen macroscopically and microscopically. Semen samples were collected from 30 quail with ± 6 weeks of age. Semen collection were done by using modifications of massage technique to prevent contamination...

Abstract

Egg yolk is used as a cryoprotectant for semen in different mammalian species including buffalo. Egg yolk from different sources may affect freezability of buffalo bull semen. Quail egg yolk (QEY) and turkey egg yolk (TEY) in Tris-citric acid extender was evaluated for post-thaw quality and in vivo ...

Abstract

A method of semen collection by massage is described and illustrated. The method was effective in 80% of ♂♂ Ejaculate volume, semen pH and sperm concentration averaged 0.0073 ml., 7.2 and 1.447 x 106 per ml. resp. Spermatozoa lost their motility within 10-15 mins. of collection.-F.S.
