AbstractIndonesia is a country rich of biological diversity, among which are the native chickens. Several clumps of chickens in Indonesia are the indigenous animal genetic resources which still need to be explored its potential as a producer of meat, eggs, and beautiful display. One on the top issues of native chickens is a tasty meat flavor. The people are more prefer to consume this type of chickens than that of commercially broiler chickens.
