In order to evaluate the morphological characteristics and ultrasonographic biometrical echo characteristics of cyclic and non-cyclic ovaries in queens, the studies were carried out during the year 2012. Ultrasonographic biometry of left ovaries of non-cyclic queens showed 10.05 ±2.40 mm length, 5.27±1.11 mm width, 3.20±0.33 mm thickness, 25.1±2.71 mm circumference, 0.14±0.08 g weight and 0.40±0.13 cm2 volume; while their right ovaries showed 10.35±4.34 mm length, 4.70±0.90 mm width, 2.90±0.62 mm thickness, 24.10±8.93 mm circumference, 0.16±0.10 g weight and 0.40±0.17 cm2 volume. The examination on left ovaries of queens showed 3.75 ± 0.95 primary follicles, 3.75±0.50 secondary follicles, 3.25±1.50 tertiary follicles; while their right ovaries of queens showed 4.00±1.41 primary follicles, 3.25±1.25 secondary follicles, 3.00±1.15 tertiary follicles. It was concluded that the health and body condition score was significantly better for cyclic queens as compared to non-cyclic queens. Morpho-biometry measurements were higher in case of left ovaries than the right ovaries. Ultrasonographic biometry measurements were higher for left ovaries than the right ovaries of queens. Number of secondary follicles differed significantly in left and right ovary and non-significant for primary and tertiary follicles; there were non-significant differences in Morpho-biometry measurements in non-cyclic and cyclic queens.
