Effects of Liquid Rooster Sperm on Reproductive Ability in Chicken

정액의 액상보존이 닭의 정액성상 및 수정율에 미치는 영향

  • Published : 2003.06.01


This study was conducted to investigate the effects of liquid rooster semen on reproductive ability in chicken. Raw and diluted semens were stored at 5$^{\circ}C$ cold temperature for 6, 30, and 54 hours after semen collection. There was no statistically difference in sperm motility throughout the 6 hours period of storage among raw semen and diluted semen groups with skim milk glucose solution (SM), egg yolk glucose solution (EY), and saline. But there was decrease in those throughout the period of 30 and 54 hours of storage. Sperm motility and normal sperm for the period of 30 and 54 hours of storage were significantly better in SM and EY diluted groups (P<0.05). Fertilization rates of rooster semen diluted with SM were 90.77, 87.70, and 59.46% for 6, 30, and 54 hours stored groups, respectively, those proved to be higher in SM-diluted group than other groups.
