Red Junglefowl

Gallus gallus

The Red Junglefowl is a tropical member of the Pheasant family. The Red Junglefowl was first raised in captivity at least several thousand years ago in Asia, and the domesticated form has been used all around the world as a very productive food source for both meat and eggs. Some breeds have been specifically developed to produce these.
