Abstract

This study compared fertility, hatchability and embryonic mortality of hatching eggs of different types of Taiwan Country chicken (TCC). The breeders were fertilized by artificial insemination every 3- or 4-day for nine times, and hatching eggs were collected daily and stored at 18.3°C for 10 days...

Abstract

Fowls were inseminated at weekly intervals with 0.015-0.05 ml fresh semen or 0.03-0.1 ml of semen diluted 1:1. Egg fertility was higher in winter and spring than in summer. For satisfactory fertility in spring and winter, an insemination dose of 0.03 ml of diluted semen was recommended. The dose...
