    There is an ad in my local paper for jungle fowl. I looked them up and they are beautiful birds.

    I did a search here, but found almost no information.

    I would like to know if I kept them confined for two or three weeks, then let them free range would they return to the coop to roost? Do they have any special requirements? Also if I have a nest box in the coop would they use it or would they prefer to nest outside on the ground?

    I have NEVER had an issue with them not comming into to roost. In fact they are usually the first to get in.
