I got these today. Are they jungle fowl mixes ?
Here is a pic of the rooster:
Looks like a game breed, possibly Asil?
They look oriental to me, crosses or otherwise. Where'd you obtain them from?
I agree with Ella, he has the mean 'ol face of an Asil. Looks like a tuffy, good luck!
I bought him locally as a jungle fowl, but I had my doubts. After looking up Asil, I do believe you all are correct. I do like him though, he has a manly crow.
Quote:yep that is my vote.
What is his weight? Body type and head shape appear to be a bit like a thai gamefowl, possibly a thai cross. Tail is all wrong for a pure aseel, but that doesn't mean there isn't any in there. Definitely not a jungle fowl, they have wattles and nice straight combs, this guy has a lot of oriental in him notice the pea comb and lack of any wattles...
Here is a aseel stag for comparison....
and here is a thai stag.....
might have come from hatchery stock of saipans or malays. some hatcheries called them the jungle fowl of their areas or junglefowl like.
there's also a bloodline of gamefowl called "black junglefowl".
