    I've got to say I've never really seen many people who want this breed. I have actually yet to see one in the show ring so far. The aseel is known for it's box bodied shape it makes and it's narrow tail.

    Do you have any other chickens? As cool as these guys are they might not be the most forgiving breeds to other more docile kinds. Chicks (especially cockerels) will fight with each other near after birth and sometimes the hens will go at it with each other. This is probably because they were originally bred to cockfight. There are actually multiple breeds based off the original. Kinda like the Shamo and Ko Shamo.

    Aseel chickens are docile towards people and the hens are not known for their egg production abilities (40 eggs average) but are great broody hens.

    Have you tried the review section yet? Someone may have reviewed the breed.
