Red Junglefowl (Gallus gallus) pair, Chitwan National Park, Nepal

Year: 2012
From collection: Himalaya Biodiversity
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The Red Junglefowl (Gallus gallus) is a tropical member of the Pheasant family. It is thought to be ancestral to the domestic chicken, with some hybridisation with the Grey Junglefowl. The Red Junglefowl was first domesticated at least five thousand years ago in Asia, then taken around the world, and the domestic form is kept globally as a very productive food source of both meat and eggs
