    I bought these at the Chadbourn, NC poultryauction today. I have heard of Jungle Fowl, but have never seen one in person. They are a young pair, supposedly. Any Jungle Fowl experts here? I just want to make sure that is what they are. They look a lot like the Blue Red OEGBs that I raised one time. Thanks!

    Pictures taken today.

    its going to be hard for even experts to be able to 100% be sure at that age, but i've seen jungle fowl chicks before, and yes they look similiar but to me they also look like brown leghorns.

    But jeez at the comb on the little roo, no mistakes it is a pair, but the real question is the one you're asking, what are they? lol.

    good luck, but atleast they look like a very healty pair of chickens.

    Hi,
    the first one is a red jungle fowl. I have some and mine look just like that when they were young. They are very pretty as they grow. Mine are sweet and spoiled.

    Those are not jungle fowl, jungle fowl are black breasted red and would never have blue. What color are the legs? Are they white or yellow?

    Now that is has been almost 2 months since my original post, it is pretty obvious now that they are not Jungle Fowl, but are Blue Red OEGB. Thanks for the responses.
