Basic physiology, hematology and serum chemistry of indigenous chicken, reared in eco-friendly environment of backyard of small farmers in temperate regions of J and K State (altitude range 1500-2000 m amsl, average temperature 13°C), was studied in adult chicken from different pockets of Kashmir. The average values for haemoglobin (Hb), Packed Cell Volume (PCV), Total Leukocyte Count (TLC), Total Erythrocyte Count (TEC), Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV), Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin (MCH), Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin Concentration (MCHC) were 13.21±0.39g%, 40.70±0.51%, 16.80±0.47×103/cumm, 3.20±0.07×106/cumm, 127.18±2.68fl, 41.28±0.56pg, 32.45±0.57g% and 11.32±0.19g%, 35.21±0.61%, 22.29±0.37×103/cumm, 2.98±0.08×106/cumm, 118.15±1.76 fl, 37.98±0.56pg, 32.14±0.39g% in cock and hen respectively. Percentage presence of different leukocytes in blood was 32.55±0.61, 48.87±0.81, 10.90±0.35, 5.67±0.24, 2.05±0.18 and 26.32±0.46, 49.98±0.72, 10.85±0.36, 8.69±0.26, 3.19±0.23 for heterophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, basophils respectively in cock and hen. The cytometry of erythrocytes revealed 13.86±0.11 micrometre and 12.78±0.09 micrometre length, 8.37±0.09 micrometre and 7.86±0.07 micrometre breadth in cock and hen respectively. The values for Hb, PCV, TLC, TEC and RBC size differed significantly (p
