    My good friend in Kentucky once told me this..... "I only use my Law Hens to breed pure". I had a few of his Sweater Greys and they were dynamite!

    If you have the Law blood infused on Sweaters? You'll probably have one of the most solid Sweater blood around. I was told that the Law Grey blood is as solid as Blueface and Whitehackles and probably one of the gamest blood for infusion. And to you Smoke, those are awesome looking Greys Sweaters you have there.

    I have Madigan gray/Roundhead hens that I am going to breed with my sweater rooster. I think it will make a good cross (1/2 sweater/ 1/4 Madigan 1/4 RH)

    No Sir... They are Law Grey Cock over Sweater Hen. The fella I was speaking about with his Law's, hens/pullets only used them to breed pure Laws. His Law Grey crosses were always on the Cock side. He would use the Law Cocks to cross on Butcher, Hatch, Roundheads or sweater hens. The Law Butchers were flashy and athletic but would get a little cocky at times. Hatch Greys and Sweater Greys were all business......

    BY your picture Smoke I see your rooster came gray, how about the hens. I am breeding gray rooster over the sweater hen this year. I breed my RH rooster over a gray hen in the past and all the roosters came gray and all the hens came reds

    Assuming both sides are pure for grey and pure for red. You will get all greys when you breed a grey over red and get greys on the males and reds and/or greys on the females when you breed red over grey...

    I agree with what most of you've said, but grey is sex-linked...if you bred red cock over grey hens you will get grey stags and red pullets always.

    thats what i observed also on red broodcocks to a grey hen.they never throw red pullets every time i mated them.

    here's the result of mating the red cock over grey hens..all male are greys and female are reds.

    Mr Everett and Easy goer, I got just what you said when I breed red over gray. So what can I expect on gray over red. I have heard that they will all be gray. I will be found out in a few months fo sure.
