    Does anyone have experience with the "Red Jungle Fowl" such as the ones Cackle Hatchery sells. I have a mixture of 2 roosters and 9 egg layers safe in a coop with protected run, but am curious about the Red Jungle Fowl. I might add another coop for some free rangers and Cackle states that they are good for free ranging. Any ideas? Thanks:)

    junglefowls i purchased from Ideal- crazy, everytime you got near them they ran away. if you caught them they would scream bloody murder. no matter how much i handled them they never calmed down. i let some free range and never caught them again.. cant get within 20 feet of them or they start running away. but on the plus side. They are GREAT free rangers... and probably the best mothers you will come across. Just get you some game hens. they're just like them minus the negative parts..
