Aseels are stalwart and spirited fighters, are owning hard feathers, have steady appearance and gentle to breeder. Origin: India Particularities: The word Aseel is meaning "pure" or "noble". All Aseelstrains do have their eyeposition central in their face. The Aseel family is very big, so here in Europe they handle the different strains as Aseel races. Aseels are known for their intelligent defensive and tactical thinking, to keep power for long time in endurance fight.
This is the most desirable Asel colour and such birds are known as "Siyah".This strain was created by the Nawab (ruler) of Rampur, a state in Northern India. They should have white eyes and white shanks, spurs and nails.
These birds are divided into "jala lakha" (literally colour of overburned brick), "lakha" (colour of normal burned brick) and "khula lakha" (light red). "jala lakhas" have reddish brown (maroon) hackle and saddle featheres as well as a dark brownish colour. "lakhas" are slightly lighter in colour, with red hackle and saddle feathers. Both these categories have hackles and especially their breast streaked with black. The "lakhas" have black markings on their back near the base of the neck and near the wing joints. A ready reckoner, to differentiate between the above two colours types, is that of the "jala lakha" birds. They have dark feathering over their ears while "lakhas" have red or golden feathering over their ears. "khula lakha" birds, a fiery red in colour with no black markings, also have reddish feathering covering their ears.All three of the above colour types may have pied or white primary and secondary wing feathers. The hens are grouse coloured with black necks and blackish tails. The "reds" were also known as "Ghans" (sledgehammer) as they were considered to be the hardest strikers.
These are known as "Zardi" because their hackles, saddle and back feathers are golden in colour. They have black or blasck streaked breasts and wing joints. These birdsalso have pied or white primary and secondary wing feathers. The hens are wheaten in colour with black hackles and tails. As a bird of this colour type was once bought for its weight in gold. It is also known as "Sonatol".

Madras aseel belong to the group of large aseel. Compared to the large North Indian & South Indian aseel the madras aseel are more bulkier and thicker boned. Typical is the short beak and a combtype covering anything between triple peacomb and walnut comb. However it is taken for granted that the one and only typical colour is "bluered " this feature must be denied after information from indian aseel breeders. All colours can be seen,even cuckoo! Madras aseel show either a yellow, yellow-whitish,fleshy or dark color. This color is slategrey to blackish allover. So the yellow shanks with black spots typical on the Japanese O-Shamo is not meant.Madras aseel are 23" in height and weight around 13.2 Lbs(6Kgs). These figures for weight only count in there homeland. In Europe these birds reach a fair 10 Lbs (4.5 Kgs) . The first Madras aseel were imported into England around 1870 . After a successful but short career these aseel faded away. In 1968 again Mardas aseel showed up again in the East German Republic being imported as studyobjects for the East-Berlin zoo Friederichsfelde-Ost. In 1972 new blood was infused (South Indian aseel from Madras area). Since then these aseel gained more and more popularity.Germany must be as the only stronghold of these aseel outside their original homeland , India.

Aseel also can be found in Turkey. These are known as "Hint Horozu". This meaning "Cock from Hindustan" which clearly points out the origin of this breed. According Turkish sources these Aseel were introduced in Turkey at the time of the Ottoman empire (14th century) by merchants and seafarers. In type "Hint Horozu" are a bit out of line and display features seen at Reza,large South and North Indian Aseel. In weight Turkish Aseel differ from 5.5 to 10 Lbs (2.5 to 4.5 Kg). They reach a height of about 25" (65 Cm). Hint Horozu are fought in natural spurs. However, before the fight gets on the sharpness of the spurs and the beak is taken away using sandpaper. In Turkey, a "Hint Horozu" cock is seen as a symbol of strenght, fertility and manhood. Every year big tournaments are organized in the cities of Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir and Antalya.

LARGE SOUTH INDIAN ASEEL

They use a slasher with a cutting lenght of 1.2 to 2.4" (30 to 60 cm) .Anyone following the widespreaded believe saying that aseel if cut by steel run is simple not informed about the customs used in the homeland of the aseel ! Another issue of a South Indian aseel .But as the aseel is 3500 years old and the Japanese Shamo only bred onwards from,the 16th century it must be clear to anyone that the Shamo is actually "Aseel-like". According local sources breeding of Aseel in the South east of India was also influenced by imports of Burmese Aseel brought back by Dravidian seafarers and merchants.
