The five microsatellite markers i.e.e ADL 102, ADL 123, ADL 158, ADL 171 and AADL 172 were used to evaluate geentic polymorphism in Bantam, Bantamised white leghorn and whitel leghorn chicken. Number of alleles at these microsatellite loci ranged from 2 to 6. The heterozygosity ranged from 0.48 (forADL 102) to 0.78 (for ADL 171). The polymorphic information contect values ranged from 0.463 (forADL 102) to 0.463 (for ADL 171). The microsatellite marker ADL 171 was found to be most polymorphic and informative in comparison to other four microsatellite markers. A consensus tree, based on polymorphism at all the five microsatellite loci was obtained by bootstrapping multiple data set analysis. The tree revealed that white leghorn and bantamised white leghorn were forming one cluster with 100 percent bootstrap strength, where as Bantam branched out separately from the cluster.
