Dead or alive Manny?Iím studying the genetics of red jungle fowl and red jungle fowl traits in feral chicken populations. Iím curious to see what the Hawaii birds look like.We have a couple of feral chicken populations in the SE. A big one in the Florida keys and another in Georgia. Lots of red jungle fowl traits.Florida settlers used to free range a red jungle fowl-derived game chicken, as late as my lifetime. They never established feral populations to my knowledge though.
In roosters, is there much variation in color pattern from the one in Peterís picture?
