The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of supplementing the diet of the male chicken with alpha-linolenic acid (18:3n-3) on the phospholipid fatty acid composition, motility and fertilizing ability of chicken spermatozoa. The birds in the control group received a diet supplemented with soybean oil rich in linoleic acid (18:2n-6) whereas those in the test group were supplemented with linseed oil rich in alpha-linolenic acid. A number of age-related changes in the lipid parameters… CONTINUE READING
