The basics:
The Asil is an ancient gamefowl, with documentation all the way back to 700 AC, and may very well be the oldest domesticated chicken breed.   Asils were instrumental in the development of many of today's meat chickens, including the Cornish Broiler. Today, Asils in the West are kept for their ornamental value, but throughout Asia they are bred for cockfighting.

Varieties (Pea Comb): Black, Black Breasted Red, Duckwing, Red Pyle, Spangled, and more
Uses: Brooding, Exhibition, Ornamental, Fighting
Weight: 
Bantam: up to 1.65 lb
Reza: up to 6.6 lb
Kulang: 6.6 - 11lb
Personality: The Asil is loyal and affectionate to owners, but usually wary of strangers. They are very aggressive amongst other fowl.
Broody: Yes
Preferred climate: Warm

What else you should know: Asils require higher protein feed, so try to keep adults on a diet of around 22% protein. This breed is extremely aggressive amongst other fowl. All males should be raised separately to avoid death and injury.  Adding hens into a flock should be done with great caution.
