- Saipan Jungle Fowl Chicken
The Saipan chicken is commonly called a Jungle Fowl; however, they are not to be confused with the true Jungle Fowl. The Saipan male can stand 2-3 feet tall, with tight feathering, shorter tail than most birds and as a 2-3 year old becomes very muscular and upright stature. They are slow to mature. During the Second World War, Saipan chickens were brought to the United States from Southeastern Asia and India.

Life long buyer! Review by ATripp
I ordered Jungle fowl this spring, all chicks including the extra arrived healthy! We handled them daily and they are still hand friendly! Although they are slow growing, the jungle fowl still kept up with the Brahma chicks in growth. By six months they were all the same height, but a little lighter in weight. Very neat breed to add to anyone’s flock! Thank you! (Posted on 12/12/2019)
I Love These Birds! Review by Cody
These Saipans have proven to be very friendly and hearty birds. I live in South Central Texas, where the winter weather can vary wildly from day to day. As of this writing my Saipans are handling the temperature swings like champs. (Posted on 12/10/2019)
Cool birds Review by B
Although they are not hardy one of 3 died in transit crackle sent another out right away and were easy to work with. They look cool and stand out from the flock. We are getting ready to go though our first winter with them but so far so good. (Posted on 12/10/2019)

Not for the Cold Review by Michigan
They came perfectly packaged and chirping. As previous comments stated, these are slow maturing birds. I bought them the same time as my Welsummers, and they still looked like little bantams while the Welsummers looked full grown after 6 months. Also, I live in Michigan and have a large "free range" style coop. They did good for Spring and Summer, but once Fall hit, none of them survived. Not the hatcheries fault, just be wary about cold weather protection if you get these birds. I might try another batch once I modify my coop for them. (Posted on 12/10/2019)
Great birds/great service Review by Big D
I ordered some Saipan Jungle Fowl 9 years ago from your Cackle Hatchery. The chicks were mishandled at the post office (no fault of Cackle’s) and 1/3 of the chicks were dead. I called and spoke to Jeff and he made it more than right. I still have a few of the birds ( a test to longevity in the genetics). In response to a previous review, KEEP IN MIND THESE ARE SLOW MATURING BIRDS. I’d say it was 3 or 4 years before they were what you’d call fully mature. Our rooster, Eyeball Chambers, is between 10-12 pounds. Thanks Cackle Hatchery. You all do a great job. (Posted on 2/23/2019)
Not the same Review by Elberton, GA
I order 9 in March 2018, cackle give me one extra. I got 10 total. The males are totally different from the one I saw it here. The males weight less than 6 lbs. (Posted on 1/11/2019)
