Changes in luteinizing hormone (LH), progesterone, and testosterone concentrations were determined in blood samples taken every 10 min for 26 hr during an ovulatory cycle in laying turkey hens. During the 26-hr sampling period, one peak of both LH and progesterone and numerous peaks of testosterone were detected. The concentration of LH in plasma increased from basal level (2.44-4.0 ng/ml) to maximum level (8.57-24.3 ng/ml) over 1 to 2 hr and then declined over 3 to 5 hr to a basal level.
