Abstract:

The objective of the current experiment was to investigate the various semen characteristics of two indigenous breeds of chicken namely Nicobari and Ankleshwar, as such data were not yet reported. Freshly ejaculated semen samples were collected from twenty breeder roosters of each breed and subjected to physical and biochemical analysis. Immediately after collection, the semen volume of individual birds was recorded using tuberculin syringe and further analysed for seminal motility, concentration and percentage of live, dead and abnormal spermatozoa using standard procedures. After recording the hydrogen ion concentration in semen, other biochemical attributes such as total protein, triglyceride, cholesterol, transaminase enzymes, alkaline phosphatase, calcium, phosphorus and uric acid concentration were estimated in the seminal plasma of both the native breeds. The physical characterization of semen showed significant (p<0.05) breed differences in seminal volume and per cent morphologically abnormal spermatozoa. Significant (p<0.05) biochemical changes were seen in the concentrations of triglyceride, cholesterol, Glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase and uric acid. The study showed significant breed variations in the seminal attributes of the selected native breeds of chicken.
