    Aloha Trueedge!!!!

    I tell you there is not much more to say about the Coon`s except they have what it takes to get the Job done, the bad side to it is they can be very mean and man fighters but when used just for infusion purposes, they will come out NFL Superstar Players......That Bloodline is very sharp and potent if you know what I mean, we showed them last season and we actually Won the Show with them, they break High, always shoving there feet straight out with there neck and head backwards, they cut well, every single Coon we have fought have always finished there opponent on the first fly, serious................That is why I have been searching for them for along time, that is why I bought out Rick Beal, his Coon`s are the real Deal buddy..........I will now be breeding them a lot but keeping them pure and crossing them to my RH`s.....Anyways just wanted to share that with you...

    Re: Coon Kelso

    Dan Grey of Louisiana made the "Coons" famous..he's a "CoonAss"..that's nickname for a Cajun/and someone from Louiaiana is called this. This may not be necessarily true, but I heard they were Hatch/Kelso or vise versa. I've heard the original breeder was Jim Kent, don't know if this is true, but I do know Dan fought some very bad hombres..dark red yellow legs.

    Re: Coon Kelso

    We never got any birds directly from Dan Gray or Jim Kent but have experience with their birds. My uncle got him some birds from Jim Kent for a while and many of them did come YL and dark red. Then we heard about Dan Gray and his Coons and we were lucky to be able to get some from a friend on the neighboring island. They looked a lot like the ones Jim Kent sent himself.

    I heard the whole Jim Kent orginated the Coons story as well. Any truth to it? I don't know. I do know that the YL reds that were from Mr. Kent were Hatch/Kelso blends.

    Good birds is all I could say about them. Nice full bodies and tight feathered. They've got a serious case of "bad intentions." These birds hit, hit, and hit even more with bad intentions.

    my two cents ..

    Yah theres truth to it...Thats the truth for sure.

    The reason some of Dan Grey's Coons can come dark red and WL is Dan Gray added Claret blood to his Coons.

    Re: Coon Kelso

    the Coons or coonass were made by Roland Landry of Lousiana, father in-law of Jim Kent. The original mating was a Curtis Blackwell hatch over bubba Rollins kelso.

    That's what I heard to, It was 3/4 kelso 1/4 hatch set as a strain.

    Re: Coon Kelso

    I've had the coons from Dan and yes they are some of the games roosters alive. I have been around Dan and Mike a longtime and we've heard a lot about the coons. Never heard of him breeding the coons to the clarets. We fought them in Copperstate and in La at a lot of the pits around the area. these birds were always pea comb, yellow legged, and very high strung. I know of only one person with them now or maybe two but I don't think that they will sell any of them. Heard many stories about how they were made but you'd have to ask Dan because Jim is no longer with us.

    COON.. NOT COON KELSO per BluffCreek

    http://www.gamerooster.com/programs/...ighlight=coons
    roland got kelsos from bubba roland of new orleans-bubba got them from walter kelso of galveston texas...roland from baton rouge la new curtis blackwell and received cocks from curtis....rolands daughter was tammy and she married jim kent from orange grove la...jim bought hatch chickens from curtis as well..he bred these cocks buy the hundreds-yep hundreds...i seen over 700 of these coon cocks because they killed a coon in the brooder and watched them grow up....fed -fought-and handled these birds...(frenchy) handled2 shows of them at sunset when i was fighting at midamerica(frenchy) was RAY COMMO..a damn good rooster man...DAN GREY bought 200 cocks from Jim and paid 250.00 for each cock....the next year dan bought some of the coons from jim....and this is how Dan came by getting the coons..he bought them from BIG JIM...Roland Landy was the ones to breed the hatch/kelsosJim set them as a strainfrom Curtis AND Bubba..Dan bought them and had great success at copperstate and later bought some of the sisiters to the cocks....most all cocks came dark red with a lemon ring at bottom of shaw and yellow legs-p comb. very few came st comb.. with a 2 inch white in streamer feathers only...the hens came both green and yellow legs but most were 75% p comb and 25% st comb......these were very good birds and there was plenty to choose from....you cant pick 50 good roosters from 700 you ought to be able to have the best in the world id think.....these roosters never thought they were behind and 90% never was.......................they are good in any weapon...

    Re: Coon Kelso

    I had a long conversation w/ one of Jim's former handler/feeder/farm hand the Coons are 5/8 Walter Kelso 3/8 Blackwell Hatch. The Kelso Roland Landry had came direct from Walter Kelso and the Blackwell Hatch straight from Curtis Blackwell. I have some of the Orange Grove Coons and also a family from Riverview Farms. Riverviews are supposed to be from Dan Gray and is who Dan will refer you to if you ar interested in them. Fortunitly I have both the Orange Grove Coons and also the Blackwell GL hatch that was used in the making.

    Re: Coon Kelso

    the coons made Dan Gray very famous before his roundheads' time.

    Some says that his roundheads are also part coons in their make up hence their darker red color compared to other roundheads.

    I was told mine are the old 42 Hatch liine that Curtis and Harold used from JD Perry. THey came to me from a close friend that had known Curtis for years through his grandfather and fed and handled for him at one point.

    Thumbs up Re: Coon Kelso

    Guys - thank you - I am glad to see this thread. We got some Kelsos from North Carolina and the breeder said they were Cajuns (or Coons ) and we could not find much info about them.
    They certainly are quick and cut.
    The Breeder also said some Sweaters that had Coon blood in them.

    Re: Coon Kelso

    Ive seen a couple at a stag derby S/k did good just not my flavor My cousin has some when we sparred the there first time they come out fast and really good lots of people out here have them. they are popular but just not what i like there are lots of people who breed them i got friends that stand bye them though. so you know they are good fowl at the derby the stags lost but did cut good just to much flying and not enough cutting real active birds. this is just my assesment of what ive seen this might not be true for other breeders
