The present study was undertaken to evaluating the effects of diethylstilbestrol (DES) on sperm motility and reproductive function in male Japanese quail. To do so, we have identified the method that ensures maximal quail sperm motility, i.e. the semen from the ductus deferens was diluted with Lake's solution supplemented with 0.005% (w/v) caffeine and 10% (v/v) quail cloaca fluid. Sperm motility was analysed by the computer-assisted sperm motility analysis system (CASA).
