The Aseel (also spelled Asil) is an ancient breed from India, originally kept for cockfighting but today kept for ornamental purposes. Despite their history, Asils are said to be friendly when kept apart from other cocks. They're also said to be very smart. Strongly muscled, they contributed to the modern Cornish "broiler"breed. Combs and wattles are very small. Aseel hens are broody but only lay a few eggs per year. Feathering is close, sleek and hard.
