    I don't know if you were just reffering to its color, but that rooster doesn't have a rosecomb.

    The bird in the OP has yellow legs, all those jungle fowl have dark legs. OP bird also looks more upright, with a much shorter back. Those jungle guys are longer and leaner looking. Just some differences I can see.

    The color is pretty common, I do think he is a game bird of some type.
