Effect of semen storage time and number of spermatozoa inseminated on the fertility and hatchability of eggs from dwarf broiler breeder hens



Effect of semen storage time and number of spermatozoa inseminated on the fertility and hatchability of eggs from dwarf broiler breeder hens



British Poultry Science 25(4): 583-587



Semen from commercial breeder males was diluted two-fold and stored for 6 and 24 h at 2 to 3 degrees C. For each storage period, groups of caged dwarf broiler breeder hens from the same strain were inseminated with 300, 200 or 100 x 10(6) spermatozoa. Three replicates of 15 birds were inseminated per treatment. Control hens were inseminated with 150 x 10(6) fresh, undiluted spermatozoa. Inseminations were performed for 5 consecutive weeks during a first (32 to 36 weeks of age) and for 6 consecutive weeks during a second experimental period (42 to 47 weeks). During weeks 33 to 36 of the first period, only 24 h storage and 100 x 10(6) spermatozoa produced lower (P less than 0.05) hatchability of all eggs set than the control (84.4 compared to 88.6%). During weeks 43 to 47 of the second period, no significant differences between treatments were observed. Embryonic mortality, measured at different periods during incubation, was not affected by the storage time or the number of spermatozoa inseminated.
