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, Atkinson and a large percentage of Rampur ). Cackle Hatchery® Breeding Farms are dedicated to preserve the Asil chicken breed along with the proper conservation and breeding criteria.
