I was reading Sex, Death & Fly Fishing last night, and it mentions the other name. I'm not at home and don't have the book with me, but if you have it, look around pages 130 to the end of that chapter. It mentions it in there.

 

Good luck!

This is the wrong time of the year to be buying them, eggs or chicks will likely not be available. In the spring, you can sometimes find eggs or adults on eggbid.com. I have tried to buy eggs direct from some folks. Asking price is ususally $12-15 or more per egg. You can sometimes buy pairs for between $100-150. The birds take 2 years to mature to have the "eyes" that you are looking for and they moult then out after the breeding season anyway. Grey Jungle Fowl = Jungle Cock or Sonnerat's Junglefowl or Gallus sonnerati (if you are into latin). I know someone that will may sell eggs or started birds next year. I will check with him (I am interested as well) and get back to you here.
