Observation of hematological indices which are a reflection of physiological processes in the individual phases of the reproductive cycle, presents one of the methods of controlling the homeostasis of the ewe's organism. This work focused on the observation of selected indices during synchronization treatment and in the first days of pregnancy. The experiment included 10 conventionally bred animals. Blood was obtained from the v. jugularis into an oxalate mixture on days 0 (date of synchronization), 3, 7 and 14 of Agelin implantation, on the day of oestrus and days 7, 14, 17 and 34 of pregnancy. Erythrocyte counts were determined by the Burker flask method, hemoglobin concentrations by spectrophotometry and packed cell volume (PCV) by the method of Janetzki. For leucocyte count determination the Burker flask method with Turk's solution was used
