Abstract

This study was conducted to study the effect of using probiotic on the quantity and quality of the native cockerel semen productions. The duration of this study took about 4 weeks. Fifteen cocks were housed in an individual cage, and were given dean water and feed ad libitum. Before the cocks were given probiotic, the sperm were collected every week for two weeks and the quantity and quality of the sperm was observed. The cocks were given 5 ml of Probiotics (4.5 g of probiotic mixed with 250 dean water) every day for 2 weeks. The parameters for quality in this experiment is colour, gross motility, and individual motility (%), while the parameters for quantity were the sperm volume of the sperm collected (ml), concentration of the sperm (x 109), and live and dead percentage of the sperm and abnormalities of the sperm The result obtained from the experiment showed that the average sperm collected before and after supplementing the chicken with probiotic showed no significant difference (p>0.05). The sperm concentration before supplemented with probiotic and after supplementedwith probiotic showed no significant difference (p>0.05). The average colour before and after supplementing with probiotic showed no significant difference (p>0.05). Average gross motility showed before supplementing the chicken with probiotic and after supplementation showed no significant difference (p>0.05). Average percentage of individual motility showed no significant difference before and after supplementing probiotic to the chicken (p>0.05). The average live and dead percentage showed no significant difference before and after supplementing with probiotic (p>0.05). The average percentage of abnormalities of chicken before and after supplementing the chicken with probiotic showed highly significant difference (p<0.01). However further study need to be conducted in order to know the full potential of probiotic.
