    Hi,

    I am trying to do artificial insemination, I have watched plenty of videos on youtube and tried to collect rooster sperm.

    Lots of videos seems show the sperm from rooster to be white. However I have tried it but the liquid semen color seems pale clear.

    I have seen in this video the rooster sperm seems clear

    I don't have a microscope to see the sperms, can someone confirm me if its normal to have it clear and not white.

    Thankyou

  3. What age is the rooster that you are trying to do AI with?

    Update : I tried extracting today after some massage and there was white color sperm too. but the semen liquid seems more.

    Maybe after few more years it turns white total?
