About Aseel ChickensAbout Aseel Chickens

Aseel, or Asil,rnchickens originated from the South Punjab / Sindh area of Pakistan and India. Theyrnare found throughout Southeast Asia, such as Shamo and Thai Game. They are generallyrnunstandardized in South Asia and India, but popularity has increased in thernwestern world in recent times with the breed standardized in the British,rnAustralian, and American standards.rnrn 

rnrnAseel Chickensrnmature slowly but develop into stocky fowl. With a stout constitution, naturalrnintelligence, and enduring physiology they survive well in free-rangernconditions. Aseel’s are broody and some farmers use them to hatch eggs for lessrnbroody breeds. They bear confinement well as long as that confinement alsornincludes same sex isolation. Aseel hens lay only one egg a week--a fact whichrnhas led to their steady decline. Their beautiful plumage, value as foundationrnstock, and use as fighting cocks has saved this breed from slipping intornextinction.rnrn 

Ancient Aseelrnranks as one of the fiercest game hens in the world. They will fight for daysrnwithout end and will fight to the death. Hens fight hens. Roosters fightrnroosters. Even chicks fight chicks. However, Aseel hens treat their brood withrnunusual tenderness and will protect them from snakes or vermin. Aseel ownersrnhave even seen Aseel roosters protecting the young. Surprisingly, thoughrnvicious with each other, Aseels prove quite docile in the presence of humans.rnrn 

Formidablernfighters, the Aseel has a compact frame, large bones, broad shoulders, muscularrnhips, and sharp spurs. They carry themselves in an upright stance as if justrnlooking for a fight. Pale, pearl colored eyes stare at their opponents fromrnunder a heavy brow reminiscent of birds of prey. Aseel's small pea comb,rnwattles, and short glossy feathers leave little for an opponent to grab orrntear. From their broad skull to their one-of-kind, horizontal fanning tail, thernAseel has few if any who can contend with him outside of his own kind.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnAseels do wellrnin free-range conditions but will tolerate confinement if needed. Keep thernnumber of Aseels in your flock low. Limit the number of roosters to thosernnecessary for reproduction. Keep roosters apart at all times. Make sure thernhens have plenty of room in the coop to roost and stay out of each other's way.rnAseels can tolerate some cold; however, they need to stay dry. Roosters willrnfly and even dig to get to another rooster for a fight. Make sure you make thernroosters coop secure from both escape and invasion. Only the experiencedrnpoultry person should attempt keeping an Aseel flock.
