Blood supply to the uterova.-inal sperm-host glands of native chicken was investigated in the present study using light microscopy (X40) during the period from January to June 2002. Samples were collected from the oviduct of deshi chicken and stained with H and E stain in Histology Laboratory of the Department of Anatomy and Histology, BAU, Mymensingh, Bangladesh. Results of the present study revealed that the arterial and venous capillaries were present mainly in the submucosa, also in the core of the villi of the oviduct.
