The Junglefowls are the same Domesticated Chicken we put on our tables for delicious meals. The domesticated ones are fatter or they could be just regular in size as they are free-range chicken; but if you happen to see the Junglefowls, they are very healthy and their feathers are decorated with beautiful colours. Watching them in the wild, one can doubt if they should be eaten or not. Well, of course, we don’t eat the wild chicken or we call them the native chicken, we just have to watch them.
Gone are the days in which we hunt for them with slings, airguns, and traps. We let them be in the forest to be what they have to be. The behavior is exactly the same as the domesticated ones, but yet, I find them more brilliant in colours, more aggressive and quick to run away when they seem to feel threatened. Well, this photograph is a classic mother-hen feeding with its chicks. Just so lovely to watch.
