    What kind of gamefowl? I know the red and green jungle fowl require special diets, but not sure about other breeds.

    Im not really sure ..but I can find out (Ill go and ask now) .. Just assuming they are the jungle fowl what would make the special diet ?

    Am i right in assuming that not many keep Asian Game in the states ?

    Rennie, I'm sorry, I'm not sure what the red and green jungle fowl diet consists of(I want to say it is a high protein diet), but you can look it up(I did, that's why I don't have any). You have to feed special things that I didn't even know how to get my hands on.
    I raise Black Sumatras and I feed them Game Bird feed(I also mix in some nutrient boosters because these are HOPEFULLY going to be my show birds).
    I really don't know about the laws in other states regarding keeping game fowl, but we can keep any kind down here in Texas. I don't know why you couldn't keep and raise gamefowl-lots of people do.
    Can you get a pic of your bird? Bet that would help ID it.

    Ive just been to ask (Its my brothers father in law) .

    . The birds in question are Azeel .. He is wondering how breeders get them so big and if its something to do with the diet. He has kept them for a few years but has just bred them and now has chicks for the first time,


    I have tried searching too and will continue to look, I was just hoping that someone on here might be able to answer my question from experience [​IMG]

    Thanks for the help though ..

    Try doing a search here on BYC-it is spelled Asil.
    Good luck to you and whatever else you do, DO NOT put another rooster around an Asil-they will generally not tolerate any other roosters around.
