Abstract:

The present study was conducted on 24 Uttara fowl. The histological, histomorphometrical and histochemical features with their age related changes in large intestine were studied. The surface epithelium in both caeca and colorectum was lined by simple columnar epithelium with interspersed goblet cells. Finger like villous projections were seen in the tunica mucosa. PAS- Alcian blue reaction was showed by all the segments of caecum as well as colorectum. Presence of Elastic fibres around the blood vessels, between muscle layers of tunica muscularis and lamina propria was found in caecum and colorectum of 112 days old bird. Masson’s trichrome stain showed presence of collagen fibres in tunica serosa, between muscle fibres, in core of villi and around intestinal glands. Gomori’s stain showed presence of reticular fibers, which was maximum in 112 days old bird. Argentaffin cells were present in epitheliums of intestinal gland and villi mostly in contact with basement membrane.
