abstract
The effect of three different levels of glucose solution as a component of deep freezing diluent on the motility, per cent neck-bending spermatozoa of turkey semen was studied.

The percentages of motile spermatozoa (over ++) in thawed semen diluted with 5 per cent, 7 per cent and 9 per cent glucose solutions were on an average of 81.5 per cent, 75.0 per cent and 23.9 per cent respectively. The percentages of abnormal spermatozoa including neck-bending ones in thawed semen diluted with 5 per cent, 7 per cent and 9 per cent glucose solutions were on an average of 31.5 per cent, 14.3 per cent and 53.7 per cent. From the two view points of motility after freezing and the appearance of abnormal spermatozoa including neck-bending ones, 7 per cent glucose solution seems to be more suitable for the freezing diluent of turkey semen than 5 and 9 per cent glucose solutions.
