    Hey i was looking into getting some red jungle fowl. I was wondering at what age do the hens start laying and are they just as easy as standard chickens and i would like to know a good hatchery that's not to expensive and every other thing there is to know about them. Thanks :)

    I'm unfamiliar with them so can't offer any advice except to put ":jungle fowl," in the search box and see what pops up.

    Welcome to BYC! Almost all of my chickens stop laying during the winter due to the reduced hours of sunlight.

    Welcome to BYC. There are other breeds of chickens similar in appearance to jungle fowl that would better suit the needs of a beginner. Check out some pictures of light brown leghorns -
