Abstract

1. Genetic distances and heterozygosity were determined in 5 Iranian native chickens: Dashtyary, Lary, Marandy, Naked neck and Common breed, using three blood group systems (A, B and D) and 4 serum protein loci (albumin, transferrin, alkaline phosphatase and esterase). 2. The highest DA and D S were obtained between Dashtyary and Lary breeds. 3. The average heterozygosity for each breed in all loci ranged from 0.330 for Dashtyary to 0.370 for Common breed. 4. Dendrograms based on an unweighted pair-group method using an arithmetic average (UPGMA) showed two distinct clusters. One cluster included Dashtyary and the other contained the remaining 4 breeds.
