    I have recently added some chickens to the my little flock. I am pretty sure they are Asil's, but don't know much past that. Can someone please help me with what type of Asil they are and how do I describe their coloration? All the previous owner could tell me was that two of the hens came from a large farm and the rooster and other hen had just hatched. I don't know of any large Asil breeders near me, so might have been some type of illegal fighting breeder.

    The bird in the first picture is a cock, and he is not Asil. I'd say some strain or another of American Pit Game (American Gamefowl).

    The other three are all hens and they do look to be Asil.

    Of the hens, looks like you've got two Dark Asil and a Wheaten.

    Agree with Queen Misha - plus the first one is too nice looking to be an asil

    :eek: Are you calling Asils ugly?! Okay, okay, I'm kidding, they are kinda ugly if you aren't a gamefowl lover. Well, maybe even if you are. :p

    I'm guessing Gold Duckwing, with a mahogany gene or Salmon.

    I agree the cock is a grey cross pit game. The three hens look asil.
