Abstract

The vagina was collected from 12 birds each at end of 4th week, 5th week (Pre-laying period), 6th week and 7th week (laying period). The birds were sacrificed and entire oviduct starting from infundibulum to vagina was excised by abdominal laprotomy and cranial displacement of sternum. The collected samples were washed with normal saline and were cut into its different segment. The TEM observations revealed that the lining epithelium of the vagina was composed of ciliated, non-ciliated, with few goblet cells. The ciliated cells were characterized by the presence of spherical to oval elongated apically placed euchromatic nucleus with dispersed clumps of chromatin. The cytoplasm showed mitochondria, supranuclear Golgi body, free ribosomes, and rough endoplasmic reticulum. The cilia were attached to the dark basal bodies on the apical border.
