It would be hard to prove, but which do you think came first, Bankivas, or Aseels? There is no denying that many Bankivoid fowl have Aseel blood in them, we've all read about the Roundheads, but if you go even further back, I wonder what part the Aseel played in what we now know as American, Spanish, English etc. I have always wondered whether the Aseel wasn't the common denominator in any breed that had game tendencies, as we know them. Could what we know as "Bankiva Gamefowl" be simply a bird that resulted from a cross between an Aseel type, long bred for pure gameness, and a wild type Red Jungle Fowl? From everything that I can read about the Jungle fowl, they will fight, but it seems to be more seasonal, and maybe not what one would consider "dead game." I have read of more recent infusions of red jungle fowl in some families of American Games, Just curious as to whether anyone has documented a cross between a red jungle fowl and an Aseel, and maybe graded back to the RJF, and whether that wouldn't come very close to what we call Bankiva Gamefowl. If you continuously select for the deepest game birds with the most endurance over a long enough time period, I also wonder if you would come very close to an Aseel, even selecting from Jungle Fowl type birds. There is always the theory of a different ancestor, of course, but some of the current DNA study seems to suggest this is not the case. I would love to hear some theories on this, from people far more knowledgeable than myself.
