This study aims to determine the qualitative characteristics of Gaga chickens in Baranti and Pancarijang District, Sidrap Regency. A total of 170 adult Gaga chickens (115 male and 55 female) were used as samples, which were taken by purposive sampling. Qualitative traits observed were feather color, feather color pattern, feather flicker, shank color, comb shape, lobe and eye color. Data were then tabulated based on sex and analyzed statistically descriptive. The results showed that the qualitative trait phenotypes in males and females were dominated by the color feathers in the color category (ii) and recessive in the white color category (I_). The qualitative traits of the male Gaga chicken feather pattern are predominantly wild feather patterns (e+), whereas in females are dominated by black feather patterns (E_). The shape of the single comb and red lobe color is dominant in the Gaga chicken found in Baranti and Pancarijang. While eye color and shank color have phenotypic frequencies that are still very diverse.
