    okay so my uncle returned from his inlaws and brought back some of their red jungle fowl chicks, so happy, they did not even tell me until i went there to discover them for myself, these guys r probably 3 months at most, still has that black circle line on the eyes. i wonder will they fly away or conform to the rest of my flock?

    I'm no gamebird expert, but I would suggest a gamebird type feed if you can get it. It won't be crumbles or pellets like regular chicken feed but instead will have different types of grains (oats, corn, etc.) and seeds (like sunflower seeds).
