As for the female, the neck is yellow with dark streaks and olive-brown underparts and upperparts. Both sexes have dark greyish feet and white ear patches.
In peninsular Malaysia, the Red junglefowl is commonly found in lowland forest as well as the oil palm plantations. It’s often moves around in flocks consisting of largely females and juveniles. This species feeds on grubs and different kinds of grains found on the ground (Strange & Jeyarajasingam, 1993; Gautier, 2002). [Source: MyBIS]
