It really all depends on where the eggs came from. The more domestic strains of red junglefowl are very easy to raise while the purer strains are much more wild and consequently much more difficult to keep and produce offspring from. Did you get the eggs from a private breeder or a hatchery? If a breeder, do you know what strain they came from? The differences between individuals with a high degree of genetic contamination and purer birds can be like night and day. Once I know what you are working with I can advise furtherů

Ok, do you know what strain they are? If not you can just PM me the breeder's name and I might know from that. Anyways, if they are a wild type line as you indicated then they should be treated more like pheasants than chickens. They will hatch in 19-21 days, stop turning on day 17. Make sure the brooder is covered or the young birds will fly right out at a week or so of age. I use game bird starter (unmedicated) for all my young red junglefowl with good results. Provide heat as for pheasants. RJF seem to be susceptible to Marek's as well as Coccidiosis and they are intolerant of sulfonamides. But as long as eggs you have received do not containing any egg transmitted diseases (vertical transmission) and your facilities are clean you really shouldn't have any problems. What are your plans for them?

Here is a short video clip of some of my birds last December or so...i just uploaded it to youtube about a week ago. Sorry that the video quality is quite poor.

Thanks guys for all of the help.

So, how we do these things fly? I want to have them aroud one of our cabins where we have peafowl, but they need to avoid the bobcats and the coyotes.  Additionally is there any sporting capabilities from these?

The ringnecks did not do so well out there.

Odds are if the RNs didn't make it, the RJF will be just food for the predators : in that case, a waste of time and money.

Predation on the ranch is almost all nocturnal, so I was hoping these guys might perch in the vast oaks and conifer that surround the cabin.

Most will be on a farm, but thought I might take some to the ranch.  The peacocks and the Guinea fowl have done fine with a small cover of 6 of each, but they are soooooo damned noisy.
