Effects of sperm cell numbers, route of insemination, and dilution of semen on fertility in the domestic fowl



Effects of sperm cell numbers, route of insemination, and dilution of semen on fertility in the domestic fowl



Dissertation Abstracts International, B 40(4): 1553



In the 1st of 3 experiments, Single Comb White Leghorn (WL) hens were inseminated intravaginally or intramagnally with different numbers (X106) of spermatozoa (12.5, 25, 50 or 100) from WL or Barred Plymouth Rock (BPR) males. For all 4 sperm doses, fertility was higher for WL than for BPR semen. During wk 1, egg fertility was higher for hens inseminated intramagnally with 12.5 X 106 or 25 X 106 spermatozoa than for hens inseminated intravaginally.
