    Default Jungle Cock

    Has anybody ever considered to obtain, breed and raise a couple of Jungle Cock's (Indian Grey Jungle Fowl) instead of forever paying TOP DOLLAR for the stuff?

    What, Indian Grey Jungle Fowl??

    Lots of guys I know had bred - or more to the point, tried to breed the Sonnerati (their other name) but unless you're going for it big time and don't have cats etc around, bit of a hassle. The prices have come down in recent years now they are off the banned list and for the amount of time I use them I still have enough old supplies to keep me going!

    I don't think you will get hold of them that easily Wiets, especially with the strict CITES laws. Unless you can find a local breeder who has a few, you wont stand much chance I'm afraid

    Hi Chris
    That's why it's useful to have a boat full of secret compartments!
    Just joking.

    But seriously though, SITES is just a set of rules which one have to comply with - very much like importing animal products into this country. Once the required permits are obtained, .....

    Exactly you would need a permit. For tying tradfitional salmon patterns the like, you can only use the real thing to be authentic. The other option tho is to either buy imitation stuff on a mylar backing (which I've never used but guess would work OK). Years ago some guys brough out plastic imitations - they were revolting and made the fly spin round like a Devon Minnow spinner. Perhaps the best option is to use hackle tips of e.o. our guinea fowl, cut or burnt to shape and add orange dot of paint on one of the white dots. Or you can simply paint a white dot also an orange dot on any common bird (colour to suit the fly) hackletip. You can smear a bit of Flexament onto this for better shape/durability. Not as pretty as the real thing but probably just as effective and almost for free!

    (Sorry Deneys you set yourself up for the chirp either from myself or from others not quite so loving!!!

    Wiets, if you get hold of some live Jungle Cock, speak to me China. I know the perfect person to take care of the breeding and cultivation thereof for you.
