Male Japanese quail have relatively large testes (2.26% of body weight), a rapid rate of spermatogenesis (14.4-15.8 days) and an efficient production of spermatozoa (92.5 x 10(6)/g testis per day). The daily output of spermatozoa is high (308 x 10(6) per bird, 2.08 x 10(6) per g body weight). The total number of extragonadal spermatozoa was 308 x 22 x 10(6) per bird. Spermatozoa were transported through the genital ducts in about 1 day, maturing quickly in the epididymal region and stored… CONTINUE READING
