Genetic analysis

The Poltava Clay variety was included in the studies of genetic diversity and relationships between various chicken breeds:

The latter study was done in 1998—2000 within the framework of an international research project entitled «Development of Strategy and Application of Molecular Tools to Assess Biodiversity in Chicken Genetic Resources», or shortly AVIANDIV, that was sponsored by European Commission and co-ordinated by Dr. Steffen Weigend, of the Institute for Animal Breeding, Mariensee, Germany.

The AVIANDIV project employed anonymous genetic markers, so called microsatellite loci spread across the whole genome. It was shown that 33 populations had no unique alleles, and 14 populations had one unique allele.<center><gallery>Image:Poltava chicken breed male1.jpg|<center><small>Poltava Clay male</small></center>Image:Poltava chicken breed male and female.jpg|<center><small>Poltava Clay female and...
