Aseel are a known breed originating from India and known for their gameness. Aseel are heavier than they appear because of their tight fitting feathers. They have compact bodies and are very muscular, with a pea comb. This breed requires a lot of room and range. The males are very territorial and will be aggressive to other male chickens and they need to be separated by 3 months of age. The Asil chicken is found on the Indian sub-continent and is probably the world’s oldest gamefowl breed. The meaning of the names Asil, Aseel or Asli is “purebred” or “from pure descent.” Cackle Hatchery® offers for sale the Reza-type Asil chicken with a blend of many strains blended together (Sonatol, Rampur, Atkinson,) Cackle Hatchery® Breeding Farms are dedicated to preserve the Asil chicken breed along with the proper conservation and breeding criteria.

Not real asils
If only hatchery would invest in true to type chickens, they would have more business. The cock in the display picture is the only True To Type bird of this breed. If this hatchery is willing to reach out to honest breeders, everyone would greatly appreciate it take on your chicks a lot more. Hopefully some day this hatchery will make the honest move of purchasing true to type breed.
I love the rooster. I am just not sure if I have a hen for him. I can’t get any eggs to hatch – do you have infor?
Needs more gameness
Wish they were more aggressive
My 3 BBR aseel turned out to be cockerels. I’ve kept one even though I need another roo like a hole in the head, because he is just a splendid bird. Bold, friendly, self-confident. I have not needed to separate him from my other cockerels & rooster. He doesn’t fight unless challenged, and quits once the opponent backs down. I would not keep him with an equally assertive rooster though, but he gets along happily in my mixed breed flock and is a good free-range/ pasture bird.
Great website, plenty of excellent info,I will be ordering from you soon.
