    Asil, also spelled Aseel.

    They are a game breed and don't do well except in breeding pairs, as they have competitive personalities.

    Stunning birds, very unique!

    The first shown are Asils, a form of Oriental Gamefowl. I have a similar but taller breed called Shamos. [​IMG]

    The second are Brahma crosses, notice the brahma-head, pea combs, and big dewlaps.
