Studies on the physiology of reproduction in the male fowl. III. On the addition of transparent fluid to the cock's semen.



Studies on the physiology of reproduction in the male fowl. III. On the addition of transparent fluid to the cock's semen.



Sci. Bull. Fac. Agric. Kyushu Univ, Fukuoka, 13: 377-387



A considerable amount of a transparent fluid (presumably from the phallus or lymph fold, or both) is added to the dense semen of the vas deferens of the cockerel at the moment of ejaculation. The bulk of the semen from the vas deferens is contained in the first ejaculate. The amount ejected following subsequent manipulations is relatively small. The amount of transparent fluid ejected is not reduced to the same extent, hence the semen tends to become more dilute in each successive ejaculate.
