Protein polymorphism of native and red jungle fowls in Nepal was analyzed by electrophoresis. Blood samples were collected in the areas of Solu, Jomson road, Kathmandou, Pokhara and Low land. Out of 17 loci, polymorphism were found at nine loci in native fowls and at three loci in red jungle fowls. The proportion of polymorphic loci (Ppoly) of native and red jungle fowls were 0.529 0.121 and 0.176 0.095, respectively. The five fowl populations in Nepal formed a different cluster from Sri Lankan and Bangladeshi fowl populations. When the gene frequencies of polymorphic loci were compared between the native fowl populations of Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal, Amy-1A, Es-1A and Akp-2A genes showed inclination of south to north.
