    Re: Grist Grady bloodline....

    The side stepping came from the roundhead (asil) side. The Grist Grady adds the in-fighting ability...

    Below is what the late HH Cowan said about Grist Grady, when he was making his Cowan roundheads:

    ...studied them closely, and finally reached the conclusion that their ability to strike rapidly and efficiently from any angle when in close quarters could be improved upon. Knowing this quality to be one of the outstanding characteristics of the Grist Grady, their foundation stock, I made a fresh infusion of this old reliable blood.

    It is one of the old families, gone with the wind. I would be skeptical of any so called Grist Gradys existing in 2013

    Re: Grist Grady bloodline....

    The guy who made them is a famous first citizen in Ft. Gaines, Georgia. I know they went into other breeds but I have never seen them pure in many years messing with birds. Did see som Grimmes (grim-ee's) another old brownred type family. Haven't seen those in several years though. Hammond Gordon is the last Old, Old Breed that I saw that could still compete or maybe I should say people were showing them. For the Lk in Filipino shows Hammonds are awesome bred the correct way. I think the Grist Grady originator had Hammond Gordons also. yfis GC

    The Grist Grady blood has been infused into many families of fowl and has been absolved by those new lines. In the various families of fowl they credit the dirty feet and sometimes blue legs to the Grist Grady blood.
