    Saipan Jungle Fowl. He is beautiful and ugly at the same time. Not an aggressive suiter, actually rather of a fraidy cat. At night he literally sticks his head under our Dark Brahm hens to sleep. Odd.

    Quote:Yes the Ceylon have cool combs. During breeding season the comb gets larger and gets the bright yellow center.

    pondering a thought... could it be he hides his head because of the bright feathers, a safety mechanism so he's harder to spot at night?

    Those are some super sharp looking birds. Nice. Have you been successful raising young? Good luck, it looks like you have strong birds.
