Abstract: The frequencies for genes of Tf A, Tf B, Tf D, Tf M, Tf E ve Tf S which were typed by polyacrilamyde gel electrophoresis were 0.219, 0.278, 0.199, 0.241, 0.037 and 0.026, respectively. 4 homozygous (Tf AA, Tf BB, Tf DD ve Tf MM) and 15 heterozygous (Tf AB, Tf AD, Tf AM, Tf AE, TF AS, Tf BD, Tf BM, Tf BE, Tf BS, Tf DE, Tf DS, Tf ME, Tf MS ve Tf ES) were determined in the flocks. The diferrences between emprical and theoretical distributions for beta-globulin phenotypes were highly significant (P<.01) Significant departure from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium was probably due to the facts that the flocks were closed to gene flow.
