Abstract

Artificial insemination is commonly used in breeder farms to stabilize fertility. Hens are able to store sperm for a long time and remain fertile, so that they can extend the chicken insemination interval, and thus achieve better economic benefits. In this paper, dwarf brown-shell laying hens were...

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

Currently most breeds and lines of geese in use at a commercial scale are derived from two wild species; the swan goose (Anser cygnoides L.) and the true goose-greylag (Anser anser L.). Interestingly, local selections performed for centuries from these two ancestors have resulted in strains or...

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

The in vitro and in vivo functionality of cryopreserved spermatozoa was examined over two breeding seasons in a zoological colony of Magellanic penguins (Spheniscus magellanicus). Frozen-thawed semen was inseminated into five anesthetized females, over a total of eight egg production cycles, with a ...

Abstract

A total of 160 Inshas and Gimmizah laying hens, 35 weeks of age, was divided into eight groups of 20 hens each. Groups 1 and 3 were inseminated once a week, while groups 2 and 4 were inseminated twice a week. The depth of intravaginal insemination was 3 cm in groups 1 and 2 and 5 cm in groups 3 and ...

Abstract

Semen from 12 sexually active ♂♂, 12 ♂♂ of moderate sexual activity and 12 passive ♂♂ was used to inseminate 3 groups, each of 40 ♀♀, the groups of ♂♂ being rotated around the groups of ♀♀, with 7 days between each rotation. The daily mating frequency of the 3 groups of ♂♂ had averaged 15.5, 8.1...
