The collected sperm can be divided into several portions, which in their turn can be artificially inseminated into the female pigeons. The number of female pigeons that can be inseminated at each sperm taking, depends on the quality of the sperm, which can be described from very bad to superb. In case of a minimal sperm production it is to be used for 1 female pigeon, increasing, in case of a superb quality, up to ten female pigeons.

This will enable you to build a dovecot consisting of top-rated pigeons, without damaging your best male pigeons. With artificial sperm taking from your top-rated male pigeons, they will do service as breeders for years longer.
