Abstract

The ability to produce viable progeny is a complex trait, involving both male and female components. In poultry, mating ratios are usually 1 male to 6 to 12 females. Consequently, the impact of male reproductive failure is much greater than that for a female. In this study, the genetic...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the role of fatty acids for sperm survival in the sperm storage tubules (SSTs) of the hen oviduct. The mucosa tissues of uterovaginal junction (UVJ) of White Leghorn laying hens with or without artificial insemination using semen from Barred Plymouth Rock...

Abstract

Objective: This study was conducted to compare morphological defects, viability, motility (MOT), fertility (F), and hatchability (H) in four Korean native chicken breeds (KNCBs), and to evaluate whether defective segments of spermatozoa are associated with MOT, F, and H. Methods: Four KNCBs,...

Abstract

Avian sperm are stored in the sperm storage tubules (SSTs) of the hen oviduct for a prolonged period. However, the precise mechanisms by which sperm are kept alive in the SSTs are still not fully understood. The aim of this study was to determine whether exosomes are secreted by SST cells and play...

Abstract

90 White Leghorn (W.L.) ♀♀ were inseminated with semen from 2 W.L. and 2 Red White-tailed ♂♂ Egg fertility in the periods 2-6 and 2-11 days after insemination was 86.8 and 64.0% resp. from vaginal inseminations, and 68.4 and 52.9% from intra-peritoneal inseminations; corresponding figures for...

Abstract

350 White Leghorn pullets were inseminated with semen from 10 White Leghorn ♂♂. Ejaculate volume averaged 0.209 ml., and sperm number per ejaculate was 30 x 106 to 60 x 106. Of 24, 883 eggs set, 89.31% were fertile and 81.42% hatched.

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

Because of the low av. fertility (60%) of eggs at the College Hatchery from 1953 to 1958, experiments were held to compare the saline solution normally used as a diluent with liquid egg albumen, which was known to maintain sperm motility for longer periods. A flock of 450 S. C. White Leghorns in...

Abstract

White Leghorn and New Hampshire virgin pullets were naturally mated or artificially inseminated for a 3-wk. period. The number of pullets showing blood serum agglutination titres against spermatozoa was greater after mating than before. Birds which had an egg fertility > 90% throughout the year had ...

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 ...
