    Texas Ranger

    If you will read the History of Game Strain titled "The Witch Doctors" by Cecil Perkins he mentioned the crosses of these great fowl (Witch Doctor) and one of the crosses he infused is the Texas Ranger that caught my interest since it is the only strain that i am not aware of.

    Check this out:

    Maybe through this thread can give me an answer to my question.

    Thanks for the help Cockmates!!!!

    texas rangers

    then Texas Rangers were bred by Col. John Madigin by crossing two black strains, the Hopkinson Warhorse and the Waddell Irish Brownreds.

    This warhorse was bought by Red Jackson (friend of Madigin) from Walter Hopkinson but Jackson died shortly after receiving the fowls and Madigin took and bred them to the Waddell Irish.

    The original breeder of this warhorse was Col. Bacon whom Walter Hopkinson got this strain when he was working as a horse trainer for Col. Bacon.

    The Waddell Irish Brownreds were a dark mulberry faced strain imported by Waddell of Kentucky from Ireland on 1875.

    Kiokok..hope this helps.

    Texas Rangers Bloodline Info

    Hi Alex G, thank you for the historical information regarding the Texas Rangers. Cockers like you who take the extra effort and time to research and share the history of strains surely make it very interesting and entertaining to us. I really appreciate the additional information. Ed

    Texas Ranger Fowls

    Kiokok,

    The bloodlines that Sweater McgGinnis used in various combinations and which appear in some of the modern Blueface lines include the Madigin Texas Rangers, which I believe are primarily the old Joe Wingate Brown Reds, and knowing Madigin breeds Clarets & Regular Greys, must have these 2 two bloods also.

    When Sweater was in charge of Madigin's brood yards in Houston in the late 1930's, a great many of the cocks and hens were carrying a fourth or more of this Texas Ranger breeding.

    When Madigin died in 1942, Kelso and Japhet inherited his fowl which were all shipped to Kelso's place in Galveston. Sweater set up the various brood yards and Kelso and Japhet alternated in choosing which ones they wanted.

    But Kelso didn't like the Clarets not to mention the Rangers - so Sweater took what he wanted of those.

    Hope this help!

    Re: Origin of TEXAS RANGER

    Here's another version of the Texas Ranger origin for those who like histories: At a tournament in the late 1800's in New Orleans, Mr. Webb Maddux of Virginia gave Col Madigin several Dark Brown Red cocks of the Redhorse strain, originally obtained by Maddux from his good friends and gamefowl associates/partners Charles and Columbus Eslin of Redquill fame. The Eslin brothers used the Redhorse fowl crossed on fowl from the Winans of Baltimore, Md. to produce the Redquill breed. Madigin liked the Redhorse fowl very much and bought two dozen of them from Maddux at the New Orleans tournament. Madigin later obtained hens of the Redhorse breed from Maddux and bred a Fardown cock from Lafferty-Garrigan over some of the Maddux hens and named the produce Texas Rangers. This is paraphrased from a reprint article in Nov 2014 Gamecock Magazine of a much older article.

    Thanks for the needed info. Got hold of 2 Texas Ranger pullets ( white soles) and looks like brown reds.

    Re: Origin of TEXAS RANGER

    From a Col. Madigan quote I ran across. The original breeding of the Texas Rangers was a Garrigan McClafferty Fardown cock over Maddux Brown Red hens. It's believed later that Hopkinson Warhorse and Waddell Irish from Red Jackson was added. Rangers do not have any Wingate BR in them. They don't come brown red but dark black red with a glossy green sheen. Hens come crow black to crow black with dark red in hackle.
