Grey Jungle Fowl

Grey Jungle fowl also known as Sonnerat’s Jungle fowl is a wild relative of domestic fowl found in India. The birds is found in most of Peninsular India, while the Red Junglefowl is found more along the foothills of the Himalayas.

Grey Jungle Fowl is a beautiful species that originates from the fertile and exotically multifaceted terrains of India. During mating season, male members of this species feature exuberantly deep red combs, and sport long, waxy-textured hackles. In fact, these hackles were in such high demand among fly-tyers at the turn of the 20th century, that the Grey Jungle Fowl nearly went extinct due to uncontrolled trapping and collection.

Phylogenetic studies of Jungle fowl show that this species is closely related to the Ceylon Jungle fowl Gallus lafayetii and more distantly to the Red Jungle fowl, Gallus gallus.
