Chicken Breed History:

The Aseel/Asil originated in India. Cornish were created by breeding Asils and Old English Games. Rulers of India kept these for cockfighting and for their beauty. The Asil is the strongest gamebird in the world. Males cannot be kept with other males because they will fight until death. Hens can sometimes be kept together but have to be watched closely in case of fighting.

Chicken Breed Comments / Experience:

Asils are very muscular birds. Their feathers are hard, short and the feathers also split at the breastbone. They were bred to not have wattles, so when cockfighting they wouldn’t have to worry about them getting infected. Their egg laying is seasonal and not frequent which is why they are somewhat rare. In my experience, my rooster and hen do not mind getting picked up. They are never aggressive towards humans, they even eat out of my hand. They can be aggressive toward other chickens. My hen cannot get along with my other hens and picks on them until they bleed. I would suggest that they are kept together in pairs, possibly a trio. The Asil hens make really good mothers. My rooster seems to like chicks. BYC member,”prariechiken”, is the owner of the pair and the hen and her chicks
