Who knew chickens could be so cool? The colorful comb (top part) and wattle (bottom part) of the Green Junglefowl (Gallus varius) is so gorgeous! Actually, the bird isn’t exactly a chicken - it’s in the pheasant family. That explains it.You’ll find Green Junglefowl in pairs/groups of two to five in the wild led by a dominant male who leads the pack, so to speak. At night he’ll lead the rest of his troop back into the cover of the forest where the birds nest in bamboo stands at 15–20 feet above the forest floor.

The Green Junglefowl, Gallus varius also known as Javan Junglefowl, Forktail or Green Javanese Junglefowl is a medium-sized, up to 75 cm long, bird in the pheasant family Phasianidae. Recent molecular work (Kimball et al., Barrowclough) has revealed that Junglefowl and Pheasants are not monophyletic.
