Morphology of oviduct of the hens, not
looking on numerous attempts of research of this body (Warren &
Scott 1935;Kubar, 1957; Krok, 1962;Aitken, 1963;Traynis, 1968;
Stoljarovae? al., 1979; Manukhina et. al., 1983;
Czareva, 1990; Stepina, 1997; Yoshimura & Ogawa, 1998), remains
investigated not full. In the large contribution to study of
reproductive system of birds have brought (Morris, 1985; Baturevich,
1966; Grasgof, 1966; Schwarz, 1967; Karapetyan, 1962; Mamura, 1976;
Follet & Farner, 1966; Fuyii, 1981;Aupov, 1987).
As observed, no work concerning
morphology of the hen's oviduct in interval from hatching to stopping
oviposition was found. Facing this data and the analysis of the
literature, we committed ourselves to studying the morphological
aspects of the tunica mucosa of the hen's oviduct, during non-laying
and laying period.
