A study has been directed towards a better understanding how the Aseel, Kadaknath and White Leghorn immune system responds to multi-determinant antigen, sheep red blood cells. In contemporary commercial poultry production myriad of Viral and bacterial diseases being lingering menace to poultry industry and retort to prevent and control them are needed due to enormous production losses. Our research has addressed the immune status of three native chicken innate immune mechanisms and components to develop disease resistant breeds by breeder and the characterization and production of native instinct chicken breeds as potential immune modulators in poultry industry. Indigenous breeds show a significant immune response and have considerable potential to reduce susceptibility to infectious diseases. With this premise, this paper asks and answers a series of pertinent questions on the utilization of native avian immunity for increasing resistance to a variety of potential pathogens problematic in today’s commercial poultry industry. By immunizing chickens with multi-determinant sheep blood RBC, it demonstrated to affect relative antibody responses against each of the proteins found in that mixture. The paper determines and presents the differences of antibody titres between groups of three native chickens and was assessed by using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) software package for windows20. The effects of three breeds (Aseel, Kadaknath and White Leghorn) were determined by analyzing the data using one-way ANOVA followed by Duncan’s multiple comparison tests.
