THE FERTILIZATION RATE OF DOMESTIC HENS AFTER INTRAMAGNAL OR INTRA-UTERINE INSEMINATIONS WITH TURKEY SPERMATOZOA

in Reproduction
The possibility of obtaining hybrids between the domestic fowl (Gallus gallus domesticus) and the turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) with artificial insemination by the vaginal route, has been studied by a number of authors (Warren & Scott, 1935; Quinn, Burrows & Byerley, 1937; Asmundsen & Lorenz, 1957; Olsen, 1960; Poole & Olsen, 1967). Although the rooster × turkey hen cross resulted in higher fertility (9% to 20%) than the reciprocal cross (0·8% to 5·0%), the potential exploitation of the former is limited by the relatively low egg production of the turkey hen. Therefore, it was deemed of interest to re-examine the fertilization rate obtainable in the turkey tom × chicken hen cross.In this laboratory, Wisoki & Soller (1968) inseminated S.C. White Leghorn hens by the vaginal
