Abstract

Gaga chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus) is the local ornamental chicken originated from South Sulawesi, Indonesia, being kept for the crows. Gaga chicken which also called “ayam ketawa” (“laughing chicken”) has the unique crowing song, which sounds like human laughing. Gaga chicken which has long and fast crowing song is called ‘dangdut’ type, while the short and slow crowing song is named ‘slow’ type. The objective of present study is to investigate the biodiversity of Gaga chicken from Pinrang, South Sulawesi, Indonesia based on morphometric and bioacoustic characters. Twenty samples of Gaga chicken have been collected, consisted of eight ‘slow’ types and twelve ‘dangdut’ types, respectively. Data were analyzed by t-test using SPSS ver. 22. The result showed that ‘slow’ type was bigger than ‘dangdut’ type. Morphometric characters could be applied to determine the biodiversity of Gaga chicken.
