    Law grey/ Lacy & Law grey / hatch-Lacy

    Lacy/ Law grey & Lacy/Red Fox grey

    Sirs, i can tell you what worked very very good for me i crossed the harold brown greys with the gilmore hatch then i put a very good line of lacy roundhead over these pullets and produced some phenominable fowl. these were great all around fowl. i later bred one of these 1/2harold brown grey1/2gilmore over my lacy round head hens and produced some really great longknife fowl. maybe i have helped in some small way good luck men and keep it going in pi hope to see you all in 2012. May God Bless. yfis Charlie
