The indigenous chickens are generally differentiated from commercial modified genetic chickens such as widely known strains of Cobb, Hubbard, Hybro, Isa, Hyline and Hisex (Aini 1990; Azahan 1994; FAO 2008).

These chickens have a multitude of functions, many cultural and traditional roles, food and income generation. These chickens are also well adapted with harsh conditions of local environment (FAO 2008; Sartika and Iskandar 2007). Such adaptation would be very important for further development of chicken breeding and utilization.
