Invocation Receptivity in Rabbit Does

Martin Fik

Abstract


The aim of this work was to verify the effect of parsley garden (Petroselinum crispum) on the receptivity in young female broiler rabbits. Nulliparous females of broiler hybrid HYCOLE (age 4-5 months, weight 3.5-3.8 kg) were used for this experiment. Experiment was conducted twice, in half of November (35 females) and in half of February (36 females). Females were laid individually in cages. Females were fed with granulated feed. Parsley garden (root parsley - 50g / female) was given over three days period (day 1, day 2, day 3). Before and after the experiment we recorded the state of receptivity in females with coloration of vulva. The state of receptivity was determined from 1 for 4 color of vulva. We detected positive state of parsley diet, on the receptivity. In November before the experiment was conducted the average of receptivity was 1.74 and after the experiment it was 2.11. The state of receptivity will be improved in 10 females (28.57 %). The state of receptivity wasn´t changed in 25 females (71.43 %). In February before the experiment was conducted the average of receptivity was 2.13 and after the experiment it was 2.72. The state of receptivity was improved in 18 females (50.00%). The state of receptivity wasn´t changed in 18 females (50.00 %).
