Red junglefowl prefer disturbed habitats and edges, both natural and human-created. Apparently the forage [12][13][8], and thick cover in these sorts of areas are attractive to junglefowl, especially nesting females [14]. Junglefowl use logged and regenerating forests [15] and often are found near human settlement [16] and areas regenerating from slash-and-burn cultivation [8]. Areas burned to promote bamboo growth also attract junglefowl because bamboo seeds are more accessible [13][14].
