Larry Romero was closely associated with Harold Brown from the 1970s to the 1990s I believe. Mr. Brown almost each year sent fowl to Larry to be prepared for the major Sunset derbies and during those years the Red Fox/Green Jeans entry was very competitive at Sunset.
Having fed the Red`Fox fowl for all of those years, I imagine Larry Romero developed a thorough understanding of the Red Fox bloodlines and eventually developed his breeding program from fowl from Harold Brown and from other breeders whose fowl performed well at Sunset - which until it shut down 2 years ago was the most prestigious pit to show fowlin the US.
Larry Romero I believe has never advertised his fowl as "Red Fox" fowl in deference to Mr. Brown and his family to which the name rightfully belongs but Larry does say that much of his original broodstock came from or through Harold Brown. However, after thirty years of his breeding craft applied to these families of fowl, the present Hatch Grey and Albany families at the Green Jeans Farm are now more Romero fowl rather than the old Red Fox fowl.
Specifically, the Grey family that Larry breeds (mainly for the Mexican shows) are I believe originally out of the Regular Greys that Harold Brown Billy Ruble and few other breeders originally sourced from Red Richardson. But these Greys are now Romero's Greys as he has certainly improved the physical structure, cutting and fighting ability of the original Richardson/Red Fox Greys (my personal opinion). I believe Larry blends them with Hatch and/or Albany to produce the Romero Greys that have had a good record in Mexico. For the long knife, I believe he prefers a Grey/Sweater cross
very good explanetion I know now why larry is one of the best breeder in usa a
anymore info's about his grey's???
would love to see more pics of larrys greys im getting a trio here in a week would like to see what there gonna look like...
I know many people has a good opinion on Mr. Romero, I buy 3 trios from him ( Grays , Albanys and Hatches ) I just receive short roosters man fighters, I cross them just like he told me, the offspring where just culls, man fighters, many of them quite I just kill every thing, he never accept his responsibility.
Heard That Whenever He Feels That One Of His Families Needs A Little Refreshing, He Breeds The Grey Blood In Then Breeds It Back Out.
Oxfarm, you are the only person I know of that didn't have good luck with Larry's birds, he has many, many repeat customers. I have his McLean Hatch... love em. I also have his Sweaters... jury is still out & since I don't like Sweaters they probably won't make my move with me... but they are nice birds. I have access to his Albanys ( I really like these ) & his Greys ( I'm not much of a green leg Grey fan... his are nice tho )... but I resist only because I have so many different families already. The birds I have are definatley not short legged. Do you think maybe someone switched birds during transit?
tysongreys06... I don't have pic's... but the Romero Greys my buds have are fairly tall, dark green legged Silver Greys... they have a nice wide back & small heads... the hens are the Silver Partridge color... I would breed them to Roundhead, Kelso or Sweater, I think crossing them with Hatch would be over kill for the L/K... too much power in the mix.
I heard that he added his Albany to his Sweaters to game them up... that explains the infrequent straight comb that I get out of the Sweaters.Originally Posted by Hatch Black

Hi Slipspur, Since I got Silver Greys should I breed the cock over Rh Hens or Sweater hen for PI shows? Also do you think the offspring pull the grey color over to the stag side when I do this breeding? So looks like power cock over speed hens is the way...
Seahawk, your right. As what ive heard from doc jovy of Sam Mendoza Gamefarm, their larry romero greys are awesome when cross to their Sweater. SM Gamefarm dont sell their sweater-grey cross, for personal use only.
he can be a model of a thunderbird or sagupaan=]Originally Posted by george
If it were me, I'd definately breed the Romero Grey cock over the speed hens... unless... you have the brood fowl & pen space to try it both ways... you just never know... as a rule tho, using the speed hens should make faster stags. When I use my Silver Grey cocks over Red hens I usually get all Grey offspring, I think the Romero Greys would be the same since they are Silver too.Originally Posted by 5SAINTS
thanks slipspur im diffently likeing the tall and wide back sounds like alot of power i will breed them over his albanys to make good show birds thanks for the response...
Anybody have pics of his grey . I always hear about the Albany in Mexico ,which other blood of his is being used over there ?
i would like to see those greys also
a good mix wold be a black bonanza
