Junglefowl are a group of four living pheasant species
which occur in India, Sri Lanka and south
These large birds have a colorful male plumage, but they are
usually well hidden in dense vegetation.
The female alone incubates the
eggs and raises the young.
The junglefowl are seed-eaters, but insects
are also taken, particularly by the young birds.
The Red Junglefowl is
believed to be the domesticated chicken.
