Damn, I'll have to remove Red Jungle-fowl from my own list :)

I saw mine in my neighbours backyard. Now that I think about it they were 
rather small. Not quite Gallus gallus, more like Gallus gallus domesticus 
(bantamus). Nice eggs though.

Hi Tim,

 The majority of replies I saw were of the opinion they didn't get there 
entirely by themselves, being either escapees from captivity or descended from 
similar flocks nearby, so I would be rather hesitant to tick them.
 Personally (and I mean personally - I certainly don't think anything wrong 
with people ticking how they like), I'm a lot happier ticking a bird when it's 
in its natural, wild range, but is purely personal preference, not some 
campaign to force my ticking rules on anyone.
 However, I might have to make a small grimace if you've got Red Jungle-fowl on 
your list after visiting a farm... ;-)
