    They are nice looking birds and yes the hens do have a small comb and males are showing a realy nice comb. Do post pic of them as they get older. If I may are you relatives from Laos?

    If I'm correct what you have are laos/thai junglefowl. They are not pure as in Indian reds....but very close to being pure as in Laos junglefowl Burmese.

    pure jungle fowl will tend to fly a lot when trying to catch it even when they are young [​IMG]
