I was looking at the photo thinking that looks like my Old English Game Roosters. Although I inherited him and others with the house I own and the previous owner said he had some red jungle fowl which ended up doing some interbreeding. As I have done some research on red jungle fowl, I found that some breeds will be called red jungle fowl, but that true red jungle fowl are hard to come by.

I was told I had true junglefowl,but I'm not sure.
They are supposedly great or just grand kids from some eggs from the San Diego zoo. I'm not claiming they are,but I was told thy were.

I will get pics after I am nearly done workin on my aviary, but I find that more important now. But pics will be soon.

Quote:Easiest way to know is to wait for the end of breeding season and see if the rooster molts into eclipse plumage. BUT, I can almost guarantee this guy isn't a RJF.

Well, looks like I don't. Hen has a comb. Now what do I do with them and all the eggs in the incubator? It's hard to sell mixes and I would hate to say they are junglefowl and aren't.
