Post Coop setups for Jungle Fowl
I'm wondering if anyone has a setup for coops that would work well for Red Jungle Fowl?

I hatched out half a dozen this spring. After I moved them from the growout pen to the coop/run I'd planned to use for them a couple weeks ago, they all want to roost on the roof. I'm wondering if anyone had a good recomendation for a coop and run that might work better.

Thanks,

- D

I have heard that they don`t care to be handled and can be a bit flighty, so I figure a larger enclosure might be best.

I would love to see some pics of them when you get a chance...Keep us posted and Good luck with them!

Been meaning to get some pics and I'll go do that now, but after 2 weeks and some change of being caught and dropped on their roosts, they are now going in. I definitely never had that problem with domestics.

Anyhow, off to take a few photos. The cockerels look fantastic now. My luck, though, they will go into eclipse plumage right before the PNPA show in Stevenson, Washington in October.

Here's a URL for a few photos of my Red Jungle Fowl.

I hatched out eggs from two different sources. I got 12 eggs from a guy a guy in Pennsylvania and 6 from a woman in Missouri. I had 5/12 and 3/6 hatch. All 5 of the 12 were pullets, while 2 of the 3 from the other were cockerels. One of the pullets from the first group got sick and went down about 3 or 4 weeks in. The pullets from Pennsylvania all have slate shanks and toes and the Missouri RJFs have the willow shanks and toes and are noticably larger.

I like them. They have a very different vocabulary from domestic chickens. The pullets make a very different noise with a sort of mechanical or soft cycada-like noise.

Not sure how many generations removed from the wild those RJFs are. The slate legged ones are from Green Gables Farm in Pennsylvania and the willow legged ones are from someone that goes by Tink in Missouri. She got hers from some guy that was selling out all his exotic birds in Florida.

That fellow you're liking is an undubbed Red Quill American Game stag.

If you're wanting to still hatch, we can talk a little bidness. Send me a message direct.
