    origin of the Bob Bennett Greys

    I have heard lots about Mr. Bennett's greys but I have never heard where they originated or what he might have bred into them to make those outstanding cocks.

    Re: origin of the Bob Bennett Greys

    ive heard several different tales on their origin so i wont speculate to know anything, but knowing bennett he likely didnt add anything, may have, but not probably, he was a selective breeder he try and fix things by way of selection before trying to add anything.
    Certainly rock solid fowl!

    Just to clarify, Mr Bennett got them direct from Harold Brown?

    Re: origin of the Bob Bennett Greys

    I talked to Bob on several occasions and he told me that he got his Greys from Harold Brown. He got the red and white clarets from MR. Gabe Jones of Godfrey, Illinios. At least that is what he told me on the several times I visited Bob.

    bob bennett sr. has past on. I dont know anything about his son. maybe someone else can help. had them for 8 yrs and if i could only keep one line it would be the bb greys. Using the word game as most on this board do would be an insult to these birds. even at a quarter blood they are Dead Game and power for days.
