Abstract: In this study, Haemoglobin (Hb) polymorphisms were investigated in the Chuckar and pheasant raised in the farm of Agricultural Faculty of Selcuk University. There were used 65 chuckars and 41 pheasants. Selection studies have not been executed at the investigated population since the beginning of flock. This study was carried out to determine haemoglobin loci status of chuckars and pheasants which was not investigated before. Two haemoglobin allels were determined both for chuckars and pheasants. The Hb A gene frequences were found to be 0.73 and 0.76 for chuckar and pheasant respectively. It was seen that the chuckars and pheasants were in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.
