Asil Chicken


Other name(s):
 Aseel Chicken; Sindhi Aseel;
Sindhi Kaura Aseel; Kulang Asil; Reza Asil

Scientific name: Gallus gallus domesticus

Country / Place of origin: India

History: The Asil Chicken (also spelled "Aseel") is an ancient gamefowl which may be the oldest domesticated chicken breed. Asils were instrumental in the development of many of today's meat chicken breeds, including the Cornish chicken. In the West, it is kept for its ornamental value, though in Asia it is mostly bred for cockfighting.

According to Willem van Ballekom of the Asil Club, "Archaeological findings from the ancient city of Mohenjo-Daro (Pakistan) in the Indus valley dated ± 2600 BC confirm that cockfighting at that time already was a popular pastime. The name Asil was introduced by Muslims who onwards ± 700 AC invaded and occupied the whole north and central India. In most areas the breed is known under its local name. In the Western world the name Asil (Aseel) is the only name used for the breed."
