Abstract

Total 12 cocks kept in individual cages were used in this study. Two times a week, total 24 ejaculates were collected from each cock and semen was pealed for spermatological evaluations. Spermatological tests were semen volume, mass activity, spermatozoa motility, spermatozoa concentration, live-dead spermatozoa rate and abnormal spermatozoa rate. The values of these characters were 3.29 +/- 1.19 ml, 3.29 +/- 0.62 (+), 85.83 +/- 6.19 %, 4.34 +/- 1.69 x 10(9)/ml, 83.34 +/- 6.43 %, 11.83 +/- 0.96 % respectively.
