Red Junglefowl Video Stock Footage
The true nominate race of red junglefowl has a mix of feather colors, with orange, brown, red, gold, gray, white, olive and even metallic green plumage. The tail of the male roosters can grow up to 28 centimetres (11 in), and the whole bird may be as long as 70 centimetres (28 in). There are 14 tail feathers. A moult in June changes the bird's plumage to an eclipse pattern, which lasts through October. The male eclipse pattern includes a black feather in the middle of the back, and small red-orange plumes spread across the body. Female eclipse plumage is generally indistinguishable from regular plumage, but the moulting schedule is the same as males. Compared to the more familiar domestic chicken, the red junglefowl tends to have smaller body mass, and is brighter in its coloration.
