    So I'm currently on deployment in Afghanistan and have started a small flock (1 hen / 1 rooster). The 2 chickens I have are local birds and I have no clue what breed they are. My hen (Annie) is a very good layer of medium white eggs (about 5 per week). She has a fairly dark brown head and neck with light brown body and dark tail feathers. My rooster (Chuck Norris) has a red head and neck with a deep blue and red body and white on the tips of his wings. His tail is also a mix of blue and red. He almost looks like an Aseel which I could see because they're native to India and unfortunately they still use them for cock fights in this part of the world.

    Are you the same one who posted a time ago, asking for what to feed your chickens? If so, welcome back. It's good to see you again. [​IMG] If not, [​IMG] We're glad to have you here.

    As far as your birds, they look like a mix, but the roo does look much like an Aseel.

    They do look like like maylays, but (I know this don't make sense) they also look a bit like cubalayas.
