I've had them for only a few years but I'm really very happy with them. The original hens came beautiful and very identical but very small. I crossed them to a big yellow legged mclean cock and the the stags barely made 1:850 the first year and eventually weighed 2k as cocks. The mclean gull stags come medium station and carried unbelievable power for their size. They have the uncanny ability to adjust to the opponents fighting style and will always carry the fight from start to finish. They are deliberate hard hitting fowl with unrelentless speed, cut and great timing. They come bright rusty red orange in color with long full hackles and thick feathering. Crossed on black butchers they come medium station as stags then low station when they moult out. They are very gentle fowl and very easy to handle. Pullets are very active and seem to prefer being loners. Stags and pullets are very uniform in appearance and the breeders immediate challenge is how to keep them coming bigger. I was told the Gulls I have are from Howard Belk.

Sea gulls???? I seen two get into it over a bluegill tha was some ruthless shiit
I also have Howard Belks gulls and back in the day I crossed them over Cowan RH and Howard's Clarets..... It worked
Has anybody cross them on asil an what was the experience With them thanks
I am not to accustomed to seeing Gulls with white legs. However I know they are out there. Do you know what strain of Gulls Collin has?
1manshow...very nice Gull pic!
does the radio has a gull infusion? or the hulsey straight comb lemons?
Radios were created with Murphy blood I believe. Still it is Whitehackle blood so I can see the resemblance.
Guys just want know from your expert opinion.... is the Gull Line different from the Whitehackle Line?
gulls are heavy in whitehackle blood mahoney probably tweaked them a bit
thanks for the replies... just want it cleared...
Here is one of the last gull crosses that I have but I have infused gull into all my stags except the replacements that are pure on the Roundhead and sweater. I just hate the fact that some do tend to be mean. even the crosses on the RH and sweater side. Not manfighter but will give a a good kick but stop after you pick them up.
I believe that the Gulls were made up of Whitehackle and another line I believe was Grist Grady's or something like that. I am not 100% sure.
Here is one of the video's

Good luck, one of the the well known breeders of "Gulls" Howard Belk use to live close to me here in Southern CA. But I was told that he no longer has fowl. Everything was sold to the Philippines. There is breeders back east who breed their own strain but we have very good guys that will help you on the subject or use your search up on the top to look for contact info.
thanks heard the same thing,will keep searching i guess,,lol
I Don't know for sure but the straight comb! Power hitters! Gameness led me to believe these had some blood of the spoken lines.... But true you can't believe everything you read on the net! At the same time I was not alive when mahogany was alive to say! but I just speak what I see with my own eyes..
supposely Deni Mahonney used a North Briton cock on Canadian hens, I never read they were whitehackle hens, but very well could have been. They defiantly weren't Hatch as the Hatch fowl didn't come along until the Gulls were bred. THE Gulls were from several generations earlier. There could be some Gull in Hatch through the fowl that came from Kearney.
