Origin of the Roundheads
Written in the 1920’s Here is the data on the Roundheads, a major portion of which came from Mr. Allen’s pen. He says: To begin, I might explain my first Roundheads who were black and black red fowl, black legs, black eyes, Warhorse type in color. I got my first Roundhead cock from Colonel F. E. Grist of Fort Gaines, Georgia. This cock I learned afterwards was bred by John McCoy of Marblehead, Massachusetts. I attended a tournament in 1890 at Montgomery, Alabama. Colonel Grist had over 100 cocks there, among them was a Roundhead cock. Colonel Grist had fought him 8 times. He fought him twice in Montgomery without removing the heels. He never got touched.I tried to buy the cock but he would not sell. Later, I wired him for a bunch of cocks. In the lot was this Roundhead. I fought him twice one night in Monroe, Louisiana without removing the heels. He never got touched. I immediately wired Colonel Grist to ship me a whole yard of Roundheads, which he did. I bred the old McCoy Roundhead, a 12 time winner, over the Judge Gordon hens, hence the Allen dark leg Roundheads.
