Ok I hatched out two Indian red jungle fowl last September as luck would have it one turned out a roo and the other a hen I was thrilled but misfortune befell my roo a cat or coon got him so all I had left was a jungle fowl hen and a red bantam roo . Both same ages about 6 months old . I noticed the other day my Roos tail was all muddied up and horrible looking lol! Then today I saw what looked like an egg at doorway of their Lil coop and in deed it was not one but 5 ! The opened it up and found 6 more in the nesting area I had made wow ! Question is will a jungle fowl hen lay just to lay or are my Roos tail feathers muddy for another reason lol! So now I have 11 eggs in all wonder should I try to incubate them I'm curious to see if they could be fertile. A red Dutch bantam roo and jungle fowl hen cross might make for some interesting specimens since the roo looks exactly like the jungle fowl male just smaller of course.
