No offense but, I know a few guys who have gotten these over the years. They was not that great in their opinions. The ones I have now the same guys who had Bob's blood have these also. I am not taking anything away from Bob He did great with them. These I just feel are better. They hit more with more power and are excellent cutters. This is speaking for historical purposes only.
A friend of mine has some excellent Murphy Whitehackles ( TheRowdyOne here on this site )... I will more than likely end up with some.
Giving this thred a bump. . . . Where are the real deal Murphys being bred here in the U.S.
frank harvey of sc spos to have good ones longscore father pm me i can get you in touch with him
I have Murphy Hatch. They are yellow and green legged peacomb. I am raising 13 stags right now that I will be getting rid of. They are 4 months old and look nice, the man I got mine from got them 10 years ago from a man in Cal that had them for years and traveled and showed when legal.
Here is a link to one of my Murphy stags at 3 months old.
I know someone in Miss who has Murphys he calls them sweater killers
"IF" I have done my homework correctly , Murphys were very instrumentle in the development and success of C.C. Kelsos and Radios , correct ?? , also used by Walter Kelso himself to develope his own line of gamefowl.
You are correct Desert!! I have been told that Richard Harris has some Murphy fowl that have been with his family for a very long time. The only problem is that I do not think that he sells them. If I am not mistaking he appears on last years world slasher video.
Richard always shows decent chickens.The only problem i see when they bring them to PI and fight in the LK is they lack the smartness.I guess he loves those roosters that will go straight to the other rooster and pummel them till they kiss the ground.Again, Richard is one of the guys that made "Buckwheat entry" famous back then- majority of the lines that they used were those WHs.
This is a Murphy I want to try this year,strong , seems to pick his shots.
[QUOTE=Roberts44903;3877572]The best I know is from Mr Trombley. His uncle got them from Heiny. They been bred with outside blood. I got them and really like them.[/QUOTE
I see a mistake I made. They been bred with no outside blood and kept pure. Sorry that was my mistake.
Anyone know if there were others that received Murphys from Carl Smith other then Richard Kelly , I know Charlie Claypool got his from Bob Howard , Bob got his from Carl , was hoping there might be others out there that got them from Carl as well.
I have the bob howard murphys and they are my favorite i like them crossed on roundhead and kelso next spring im crossing them to my greys, kelsos, roundheads and my hatch birds
i was told by j. jumper that murphy blood was the base blood used to make his radios. yfis
Did you get them from Charlie ? Getting Bob Howard's Murphys is alot like having Bobby Boles Asils.
No and its a know fact that bob got his murphys from dwight orr a gaff maker from tennesee
Scott , sounds like a winning plan , any thoughts of incorporating some solid C.C. Kelsos
Norland Blount have some real nice murphys from Carl smith, I'm not certain if he's selling any but they're as good murphys as you'll get.
Norland Blount 985-662-4911
Thanks Ted ! isn't Norland 1/2 of Longleaf ?
Norland have his own farm now satsuma gamefarm. He has very good selection of fowl.
Outlaw Greys , did you get the strait Murphys or the ones he had that carried the Boles blood in them ? I dont know if he soloed but he did get him a WSC with that blend.
