Abstract

Female birds store sperm in sperm storage tubules (SSTs) in the uterovaginal junction of their reproductive tract for days or weeks (depending on species) before fertilization. Sperm are transported from the SSTs to the infundibulum where fertilization occurs immediately after ovulation of each...

Abstract

This article discusses the intrinsic factors (growth origin and seasonal variations) and extrinsic factors (alteration of sperm migration, sexual behaviour, quantity and quality of inseminated spermatozoa and timing of insemination and expertise of artificial insemination crew) that regulates and...

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

This article focuses on examining some of the current broiler breeder management strategies in relation to contemporary social demands as well as to the economic requirements. Topics include the following: gamete production; optimization of genetic potential; appropriate feeding and management; ...

Abstract

A very large majority of farm animals express seasonal variations in their production traits, thus inducing seasonal availability of fresh derived animal products (meat, milk, cheese and eggs). This pattern is in part the consequence of the farmer's objective to market his products in the most...

Abstract

206r-type fowls were inseminated once on each of 2 consecutive days. The birds were aged 33, 44 or 55 wk at the start of insemination. Number of days from AI to the last fertile egg (Dm) was highly correlated (0.46-0.67) with the interval from AI to the 1st infertile egg (De), and both were...
