Abstract: Immunity is a very important trait in rural poultry. The present experiment was a comparative study of the immune responses of local native chickens (T1), PB2, a colour broiler (T2), and crossbreed F1 (T3). In the study of cell-mediated immunity that is evoked by PHA-P injection, immunity values in terms of foot index for T1, T2, and T3 were found to be 0.08±.03, 0.10±.02 and 0.11±.01, respectively. In the study of humoral immunity, a 1% sheep RBC solution was injected. After 5 days, the mean HA titres of T1, T2, and T3 were found to be 4.5±0.2, 8.33±1.0 and 8.16±0.4 respectively. A T1 4th day mean titers of T1, T2, and T3 were found to be 7.0±0.2, 10.16±0.4, and 10.0±0.2 respectively. On the 5th and 14th day significantly lower immune response was reported in T1 Wherease T2, and T3 were not differed statistically. At 21th day, mean HA titres of T1, T2 and T3 were found as 5.16±0.6, 5.50±1.0 and 6.33±1.2 respectively.
