Red Junglefowl – females

posted in: birds, Morphology-Develop. | 0

I went back to the location where I had seen (and posted) an odd adult female Red Junglefowl (Gallus gallus spadiceus) with a comb. On this occasion the adult male bird had a three female harem all which looked a bit odd – with white ear-lappets of different sizes and combs of different sizes. The male (shown in the composite with the three different females) and is also quite a dandy.
