Does any one have any jungle fowl for sale???
how much do they ussually go for???
Hello there, I'm new too the forum but, saw your post. I have breed junglefowl among other pheasant species for years. I have Red junglefowl, Grey Junglefowl, and Ceylon junglefowl and plan on adding the Green junglefowl soon. Green junglefowl will go for $500 a pair and up. Depends on the breeder. I know of only a few people here in the states that breed them.
Have you ever raised any kind of junglefowl. The reason I ask is that the green junglefowl are not for beginingers. They are very hard to raise.
I hope I've helped you out in some way.
I've never raised them before but I have pheasants, peacocks,and ducks so I know some things.
wow they expensive. how much are chicks?? Are Greys easier to raise?
do you have any basic pointers of what their needs are to help them to breed in captivity?
Quote:You still need junglefowl experience first, they are different than all those.
they and the ceylons.
both average $400-$600 per pair for yearlings.
They are EXTREMELY flighty
they can not tollerate any type of cold
do not produce heavy amounts
need more specialised diets
realy need to be off ground if possible
like heavy cover
areial roost and perches
more like a tragopan or something than chickens
the reds and greys are much cheaper and lots easiler to raise, $80- $150 per pair on average
still similar in care, but much tougher birds and can handle more learning on your part than the other two
you'll never find a seller for eggs or chicks on greens, those types of fowl arent sold that way in general
I like Greys. Are they more hardy??
and you can get about 6-8 pairs for what 1 pair of greens will run you.
They are no where near as sysitive as the greens, lay a good number of eggs each year, where greens lay very very few. They dont have to be kept in as spotless and imaculate pen conditions as greens, handle winter a little better, and are no where near as flighty, you can actually walk up to them, greens you have to be sneaky with, they will stress out and or get extremely flighly when they see you, very similar to green peafowl, but worse.
Greys have that beautiful feather patterns and marking, just in a grey form instead of green.
I would HIGHLY recommend you start with them and work your way up to the ceylons and greens in a few years, IF you still wanted to try them after you have the greys.
ok I am thinking Greys!!!!!
where are you located???
Charles Hill, in Commerce GA has all 4 species and is an excellent breeder of them, great quality
