Red Jungle Fowl
Red Jungle Fowl Chicken Breed Information and Chicken Facts
Jungle birds are the "original bird" from which all varieties and
strains of domesticated chickens arrived based on comments and observations made
by Darwin. This type of chicken/fowl is smaller than most common sizes of
chickens yet a little bigger than the modern day bantams that are being bred.
These birds have one of your best chances of free ranging fowl and avoiding
predators. Cackle Hatchery’s bloodline/strain was acquired from some
descendants of Red Jungle in the San Diego Zoo in California. Most of the birds
have a slate blue or grey colored leg and have white earlobes. Sometimes they
have a moss green leg color and red earlobes because of some differences in the
sub-species that were used in our original breeding. Cackle Hatchery has been
breeding our bloodline/strain since 1990.
