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.
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)
