Abstract

????? ?.; ???????? ?.?.; ??????? ?.?. The five-toed chickens have been well known in the history of agriculture and zoology for a long time. Genetically, they represent a mutation of developmental gene(s) that leads to the polydactyly condition observed in fi ve-toed chicken breeds found in China, Japan, England, France, Russia, Turkey, Poland, and Lithuania. We analyzed the ancient and contemporary literature and hypothesize that the polydactyly mutation occurred more than one time and independently in Europe, Asia and, maybe, in the other parts of the world. If the five-toed chickens had several centres of origin or, at least, two in Europe and Asia, the question arises how they were distributed to other parts of the world. We may suggest that they passed along the known ways in history as other chicken populations did. Events in human history that involved chicken diffusion have been occurring over thousands of years, might repeat in opposite directions, and could not always be traced. Recent molecular studies may provide new insight into the problem of the polydactyly and its origin in chickens. ? ?????? ??????????? ????????? ?????? ????? ????????? ???, ??????? ?? ??????????, ?????? ?? ?? ??????????????? ? ????????????????? ???????????-????????????? ??????? ??????? ? ???????? ????? ????. ?????? ????????????, ??? ??????????? ? ??? ???????? ??? ????????? ???????
