    Hello and welcome to BYC. I'm sorry, I can't give you any advice on that. Maybe trying searching for the breed in question, using the search box.

    Good luck

    Hi and [​IMG] I am glad you joined us! Cackle Hatchery does carry Red Jungle Fowl chicks, but I don't they are in stock. Here is the link:
    https://www.cacklehatchery.com/red-junglefowl.html

    I think they will be available to order around December 12th, (if I'm not mistaken!)
    I hope you find what your looking for, best wishes! [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    True Red Junglefowl are nearly extinct and finding a breeder is very difficult. Most pairs run a few thousand dollars each. Every "Junglefowl" I've ever seen has been a simple gamefowl in actuality.

    You might check the Pheasants and Partridge section of this forum. Real Junglefowl are far more like most pheasant species in care and such aspects, so you may find a breeder there.

    G’Day from down under gallinero73 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Good luck with your search for some Red Jungle Fowl.

    I hope you enjoy BYC; not only is it overflowing with lots of useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures about chickens, turkeys, duck, quail, Peas and pretty much any other feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
