Hi All,

A colleague here is interested in possibly finding some feral junglefowl populations to work on. Does anyone know of the status of any feral (presumably red?) junglefowl pops here in Oz? Is there a population still present on Heron island or the NW Islands of the Capricorn group? HANZAB also mentions Goat Is in Sydney, are there still any there?

If there are none in Australia whrere would be the closest and most easily accessible spots in SE Asia to find either red or green junglefowl?

Strange as it may seem, despite the bucket loads of research done on caged chooks, little work has been done in the field to 'ground truth' much of the conclusions.

Many thanks in advance,
