  • Breeder Source Farm: Cackle Hatchery® Poultry Breeding Farm has been developing our bloodline or strain of pure Red Jungle Fowl chickens since 1984.


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 are one of your best choices for 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 legs 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 1984.

We can not ship Jungle Fowl to Hawaii.

    All chicks arrived vigorous and alive. All are drinking and eating. I am very happy with my order.

    Red Jungle Fowl, smart and funny

    Ordered 4 Red Jungle Fowl along with my Wyndottes. Got 1 extra for 5 total. At week 5 it’s looking like I got one hen and 4 roosters, which is disappointing as I hoped for more hens but it appears from other reviews that the RJF from Cackle tend to be rooster heavy. Wish that they could be purchased already sexed, I’d really like some hens.

    I am pleased with the Red Jungle Fowl I received , the males are a very brilliant color and the female has the conformity and color that I expected.

    Beautiful chicken

    I love my red jungle fowl. Ordered a one male and a few females. My roo does a great job with the females and my silkies also. He does like to fly out of the uncovered part of the coop, and can go a good 20 feet up and over, so make sure you clip their wings or keep them in a covered coop.

    Got a large shipment of birds in. Super excited about the Red Jungle fowl in the order. Everyone arrived alive and well.

    Jungle fowl are a welcome suprise

    We ordered jungle fowl because we loved the ones we saw in maylaysia and thought it would be a fun addition to our coop. To our suprise they are a lot smaller than the average chicken. They have interesting feather patterns. They are very smart. Anytime the dog goes near they know exackty where to jump to or hide… while our other chickens haven’t figured that out yet. They are healthy and have grown up very nicely.

    Cool different breed

    A very cool breed somewhat on the wild side. I ordered 4 chicks, as they only come in a straight run, I ended up with 3 roosters, 1 of which was malformed and had to be put down, and one hen. The 2 roosters are magnificent, and are bantam size, and very nice to the hens. They dont really fight or challenge the other much bigger rooster. The roosters will fly off… yep they fly very good much like a pheasant, and live to free range. These are a great addition to my flock and I’d certainly order them again…. however I need hens!!!

    Chick Order

    Just wanted to let you and Jeff know how pleased I am with the Red Jungle Fowl and the Silver Spangled Hamburg chicks you sent…They arrived right on time, in great shape and are continuing to thrive. Thanks, also for the two extras you sent…I’ll be ordering again when I find myself in a fowl mood.
