ABSTRACT



Study on semen of native Polish breed Green-legged Partridge was carried out. Morphology of spermatozoa and production of malondialdehyde (MDA) in fresh net semen and semen diluted 1:1 with EK diluent and stored for 24 hours at 4°C were examined. Significant differences (P≤0.01) between fresh semen and stored with regard to pH (7.15 vs. 7.40), osmotic pressure (298 vs. 345 mOsmol/kg) and number of total live spermatozoa (97.3% vs. 87.6%), morphologically normal (84.8% vs. 65.4%) and with bent neck spermatozoa (1.6% vs. 12.0%) were observed. Lipid peroxidation expressed as concentration of MDA in fresh semen (0h) and after 24 h of storage did not differ statistically and averaged 0.28 and 0.33 nmol/50 x 106 spermatozoa, respectively.

Key words: Green-legged Partridge, fowl semen, spermatozoa morphology, lipid peroxidation.
