    from the neck down you have good looking rjf your hen looks very good almost perfect body and head shape the only thing I'd say that isn't right is the waddle size especially of the female it should be almost nonexistant they are probably mixed with old English game somewhere along the lines like most rjf

    I would call them chickens. In addition with what has been said about the hen, the rooster has some traits that differ from pure birds (i.e. tail coverts or lesser sickles are too long).

    if you're still around june-september let me know if they eclipse molt I doubt he will but I'd be curious to find out there's also a few other things like the tail has too many feathers and is held too upright there is also something off about the neck its hard to describe but still a fine specimen pure jungle fowl in the united states

    are almost nonexistent except in zoos and maybe a few people who have left the country to obtain them I've also heard of them in Hawaii and Fitzgerald Georgia but any wild chickens found in these places are almost certainly not pure red jungle fowl

    Thanks everyone for the advise and comments. Much appreciated.

    I live in Northern Thailand and we have wild jungle fowl in the jungles on the mountains near my home.

    I have another pair... I have the photos.. just trying to work out how to get them onto the computer to put on here.

    The other pair the female has almost no comb or wattles... and her face is greyer.. not bright red. The male looks a different shape too more stocky and long body, not upright like the first pic. Give me a day or 2 and I will get the new photo on here.
