By now we have had many discussions on Aseel on these Forums with every Theme woven around deep gameness accompanied by superlative endurance. However one characteristic that really distinguishes an Aseel from other Gamefowls is its roosting habits and ability to fly to a high perch. A Bankiva Gamefowl when it is nervous or disturbed will most times opt to fly into trees or onto rooftops, whereas a genuine Aseel will opt to run into tall grass (If available) so it can camouflouge to hide. Basically even in the families of different aseels you have two kinds Masiyal (Heavy boned and very dense Muscle, scantily feathered) or Pariyal (More profusely feathered and light on bone density and muscle composition) A Masiyal Aseel will fly onto a roost no more than 2 feet high whereas Pariyal will fly to higher roost. As a Masiyal Aseel matures his preference of roost is the sandy ground and the hen will dig holes in the ground to lay and hatch eggs. A Pariyal Aseel will display speed but a Masiyal aseel will display a lot of Endurance. It is easy to train a Pariyal Aseel but it takes special skills to train a Masiyal Aseel. My preference obviously is the Masiyal Aseel as it displays a lot of old world breeding.
