    Thanks Chris. I know in game fowl, they are all BBR, but would like a better general idea when putting him with females.

    Ya he looks more Orange than Red in the hackles and down the back and into the saddle feathers..
    I had to do some jumping around in the ASoP to get the color because in the Malay, Aseel and Shamo Wheaten and BBR males are the same so I looked up Wheaten under Modern Game...

    poultryhaven:
    He looks to be a BBR (Black Breasted Red) But it is a little hard to tell in the pictures.
    He show nice short stout beak, looks to have a nice broad, flat back with short feathering. He looks well Muscled with good spread of legs.. His comb does little big. Is his leg Yellow or white?
    If they are Yellow I would say show him... Let a Judge get there hands on him and tell you what they think and what you will have to work on.. As for what I see in the picture he isn't bad..
    Aseel/Asil only can be shown as Large Fowl I believe ( no bantams ) the standard call for the cock to be 5.5 lbs and hens 4.0 lbs.... I hope this helps you...

    He appears to be a well stationed bird. As Chris said, his comb is a little big for the breed, but I think it will be ok. His legs appear to be white, and along with the comb, I would tend to think there is something else working in his blood. I could be completely off base here, but his comb looks more like a cushion comb than a pea comb. Over-all, nice bird. If you are into showing, my suggestion is to enter him into one, the judges will let you know how he stacks up. My experience of showing Asil, there aren't many others out there who show this breed. Good luck with him.
