Junglefowl are a group of four living pheasant species which occur in India, Sri Lanka and south east Asia.
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.
