    Walt, I hafta agree with the guys on those Asils. Love the legs and head on the cock. Can you share the lineage or source for those fowl? I'm also interrested in his weight. Thanks......Pop

    John Bettencourt strain..... he is 6#. Some of these develop huge heads...very much like a
    Cornish. They all have a short beak.

    Here is a 3yo cock w/hen and baby. He has developed a lot of red/brown in the hackle.

    I had one of Johns hens, til a predator took her. He has some really nice fowl. Pakistani blood that he paid a fortune for, as did I. My hen threw some cocks over 6 lbs when crossed with my Rampuri, which are all under 6. They all tend to flesh up in the face as they mature, even to the point to where they couldn't see well. Until that time, they were world beaters. Very fine birds. Yours looks really good for 3 years. The red in the hackle is normal and hard to breed out. Nearly impossible, as a matter of fact. Congrats on obtaining such fine Asils. If you see John, tell him Hi from Paul in FL. I recently moved to GA and lost his phone number in the move. Thanks.......Pop
