    I am researching for a television program and need to know if the below hen & chicks are Junglefowl or not?
    Can anyone please tell me what particular species they are?

    I'm 85% sure they are but not certain. Are they crosses?

    Thanks for the response - these screenshots are from archive footage labelled as junglefowl - however I am not sold as it's been very difficult to find images of these specific hens & chicks on the internet labelled as junglefowl. They could very well be crosses :S
    Is there an obvious giveaway perhaps?

    The long slanted legs maybe and the bantam appearance like in my profile picture of the phoenix notice the legs and the body shape

    Does this mean it is more likely a different breed? Not a junglefowl?
