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 1990.
