AbstractFull Text

This work aimed at analyzing the effect of factors which can influence fertility and hatchability in goose eggs with special attention paid to artificial insemination intervals. A total of 557 Gray Landes geese, part of a selection program on number of goslings, divided into three generations, was...

Abstract

Ducks (common, Muscovy and mule ducks) are the third most important bird species in animal production for human consumption worldwide. Our study aimed to improve the efficiency of mule duck breeding, thus contributing to the efficiency of food production in general. In the common duck, females can...

Abstract

A total of 540 common duck dams were used for a comparison of duration of fertility and hatchability between eggs issued from common dams inseminated with sperm (175×106 dose-1) from either common (pure-breeding or PB) or Muscovy (crossbreeding or CB) drakes. Artificial inseminations (AI) were...

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare fertility and early embryo mortality rates (≤5 days of incubation) following artificial insemination (AI) of common duck females (Anas platyrhynchos) with semen from either common or Muscovy (Cairina moschata) drakes at various periods of the reproductive...

Abstract

The reproductive performance of mule duck due to the following: paternal effects; breed effects (purebred vs crossbred); the role of molecular genetics in improving the genetic potential of the mule duck, and genetic correlations of other production traits (fertility, hatchability, feed conversion, ...

Abstract

Data on reproduction and egg production of 211 female ducks of the Brown Tsaiya (Ts) and Pekin breeds and their reciprocal crosses were analysed. Differences in the 4 genotypes, additive direct and maternal crossbreeding effects and heterosis were estimated for the following traits: age at first...
