Abstract:
Kokok Balenggek chicken is a poultry genetic resource from West Sumatera Province, Indonesia, well-known as song fowl for Minang Kabau tribes. This study was conducted in “Agutalok” Captive Breeding Farm in Solok Regency, West Sumatera Indonesia to characterize local chickens based on qualitative traits. This research was aimed to collect basic data of qualitative marker on Kokok Balenggek song fowl. Twenty one adult male of Kokok Balenggek chickens were sampled for this study. Traits studied were number of crow, feather morphology, plumage colour, skin colour, shank colour, comb type, comb colour, earlobes and wattles. The results showed that the number of crows was ranging 5-11 crows. The qualitative traits on Kokok Balenggek chicken were Taduang (4.76%), Jalak (9.52%), Kinantan (9.52%), Kinangkeh (9.52%), Sipatuang rimbo (4.76%), Kuriak padi masak (4.76%), Biriang kalek (23.81 %), Biriang pucek (14.29%), Biriang kuniang (19.05%). Overall, normal feather cover was the main plumage characteristics of Kokok Balenggek chicken populations in the study area. Yellow shanks were dominantly most frequent, followed by black shanks. All chickens studied had earlobes and had wattles. Further studies involving morphometric, production and molecular analyses are important for exhaustive characterization.
