Embryonic Sexing in Rabbits by Using Special Diet and Change of Vaginal PH

Sajad S. Shelan | Asmaa Sh. Alilawy


Abstract: This study was undertaken to investigate the effect of diet and Chang of vaginal pH on Sex ratio in different groups and biochemical parameters in pregnant does,. A total of 15 rabbits. Relied on the program (Diet +intra vaginal washing+ Time of copulation) Divided into three groups, Group I 5 pregnant females supplied with drinking water mixed with sodium and potassium, Group II 5 pregnant females supplied with drinking water mixed with calcium and magnesium, and Group III 5 pregnant females (control) supplied with drinking>pure>water>without>any>added. The study involved rabbits Weight of 2.5-3 kg at the age of about (9 months). Blood samples were collected from pregnant does in different groups. It was found that the delivering off springs male to female ratio were 10.71-0.41and o.71 for the first, second and third groups respectively. Also, yields maximum numbers of offspring males in (Na, K) group was (91.42 %). Also, yields minimum numbers of offspring females in Na and K (8.57 %). while rabbits fed with Ca and Mg yields (27, 5 %) female pregnant does with Ca and Mg yield lowest numbers of offspring in males (27, 5 %). but yields maximum number in females (72.5 %). was higher than the male offspring in control group (40 %) and also male offspring of mothers (Ca, Mg) (27, 5 %) was lower than the male offspring>in>control>group> (40 %). Our results suggest that different amounts of ions in the diet of rabbits can have significant effect on the sex ratio of delivered rabbits offspring.
