The basics:
The Malaysian Indigenous Chicken was created by crossing the Red Junglefowl (Gallus gallus), with different domesticated chickens brought to southeast Asia from Europe. The Red Junglefowl is a tropical member of the Pheasant family, and is often believed to be a direct ancestor of the domestic chicken. Red Junglefowl are native throughout most of southeast Asia, from Paksitan and India eastward through Sumatra and Indonesia, and are also feral on several Hawaiian Islands.
