    I have a source that is offering me some Ceylon Jungle fowl. Are they hard to keep and raise? I checked out some pics and I thought they looked really cool but haven't found much info. Anyone here have them?

    I have them they are a pleasure to have. Where do you live, reason for asking is they don't do to well in cold climates. The crow of them is so cool to listen to. Love waking up to the crows of my Red JF, Grey JF and my Ceylon JF. If you can I'd get what your friend is offering you.

    I am in central Florida so coldness will not be a issue for me lol. Where do you live? I've done a some peacock pheasants already so I would guess they would be similar care am I right?

    Do you sell red or gray baby's or eggs?

    I am also in the central Florida area & just acquired a Green jungle fowl cock (expecting hens in May). He is my first & I would also appreciate any advice on them, especially regarding diet.
