The distal femora and proximal and distal tibiae of 4 weeks old broiler chickens have three main types of blood vessels in the growth plate region-metaphyseal, epiphyseal and transphyseal. The transphyseal vessels extend across the entire thickness of the avian growth plate and provide a means of luminal communication between the metaphysis and epiphysis.
