“Trust Mind” photographed a rooster resting in a hidden corner of Pasir Ris Park recently (below).
This all white rooster with red comb and wattles has a prominent white ear patch. It is possibly a hybrid Red Junglefowl (Gallus callus).
Wildlife Consultant Subaraj Rajathurai has this to say: “Possibly [a hybrid Red Junglefowl], especially with that white facial lappet. At Pasir Ris Park, the western-most extension of the wild eastern population, someone released 10 white chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus) and polluted the wild population in practically in no time!.”
The images above and below were from years back, photographed by Subaraj well before hybridisation, show a normal male Red Junglefowl (above) and what is possibly an albino male, also a Red Junglefowl.
