This experiment was conducted to study the effects of egg yolk plasma (10%, 15% and 20%), soybean lecithin (0.5%, 1% and 1.5%) and whole egg yolk (WEY) (control) on post-thawed sperm quality, hatchability and fertility outcomes. In experiment 1, sperm motility, abnormalities, membrane integrity, viability, apoptosis status, mitochondrial activity were studied following freeze-thawing. The best quality of frozen-thawed rooster sperm was chosen to be used for the assessment of the hatchability… CONTINUE READING
