The reproductive tract of the turkey hen (a biometrical study).

Abstract

A biometrical study of the reproductive tracts of 173 hens was carried out after slaughter at 53 weeks of age. Mean weights and total lengths of the reproductive tracts of four strains of actively laying turkey hens were 265 - 279.5 grams and 80.9 - 84.5 centimetres. Mean measurements in centimetres of oviduct anatomical divisions were: infundibulum 10.9 - 11.7, magnum 44.5 - 45.2, isthmus 12.6 - 14.5, uterus 9.6 - 10.8, and vagina 2.6 - 3.5.
