Betong Chickens, known in Thai as kai betong, are a breed of domestic chicken, that originated from the langshan variety from China and was introduced to Thailand by Chinese immigrants.

 

It is named after the place where it was first bred for consumption, i.e. the Amphur Betong in Yala Province. Adult males have a reddish-yellow plumage and females are whitish-yellow. They have yellow legs and feet, and a single red comb.
