About Aseel ChickensAbout Aseel Chickens

Aseel, or Asil, chickens originated from the South Punjab / Sindh area of Pakistan and India. They are found throughout Southeast Asia, such as Shamo and Thai Game. They are generally unstandardized in South Asia and India, but popularity has increased in the western world in recent times with the breed standardized in the British, Australian, and American standards.  

Aseel Chickens mature slowly but develop into stocky fowl. With a stout constitution, natural intelligence, and enduring physiology they survive well in free-range conditions. Aseel’s are broody and some farmers use them to hatch eggs for less broody breeds. They bear confinement well as long as that confinement also includes same sex isolation. Aseel hens lay only one egg a week--a fact which has led to their steady decline. Their beautiful plumage, value as foundation stock, and use as fighting cocks has saved this breed from slipping into extinction.  

Ancient Aseel ranks as one of the fiercest game hens in the world. They will fight for days without end and will fight to the death. Hens fight hens. Roosters fight roosters. Even chicks fight chicks. However, Aseel hens treat their brood with unusual tenderness and will protect them from snakes or vermin. Aseel owners have even seen Aseel roosters protecting the young. Surprisingly, though vicious with each other, Aseels prove quite docile in the presence of humans.  

Formidable fighters, the Aseel has a compact frame, large bones, broad shoulders, muscular hips, and sharp spurs. They carry themselves in an upright stance as if just looking for a fight. Pale, pearl colored eyes stare at their opponents from under a heavy brow reminiscent of birds of prey. Aseel's small pea comb, wattles, and short glossy feathers leave little for an opponent to grab or tear. From their broad skull to their one-of-kind, horizontal fanning tail, the Aseel has few if any who can contend with him outside of his own kind.  

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