    Here is a pure Asil chick, anyone ever seen a color pattern like this before? I'm very curious to see what color he turns out

    Beautiful baby! I've never heard of an Asil, but I have two unidentified youngsters that an awful lot like the mom, I'm wondering!

    It looks as though it will look like the father chicken, due to the fact that dad had brown in his tail and across his back. Also some on his neck.
    Chicks are so cute and pretty and beautiful, then they grow up and become gorgeous.

    Not surprised if you haven't heard of Asils also spelled Aseels before... they are a rare breed - ALBC has them listed as Critical. I have some basic info and pics of different colors and birds on my website.
