    Wow! Nice to see & learn about the history. Wonder if they ever thought it would turn out like it is now? Do you think any of them would have done anything any different had they known?

    Three older cockers that played a big role in my life early on was Cecil Davis,Roy Guyer and Pete Barker. Pete was my mentor helped me to improve my handling skills introduced me to Cecil who I got to handle for both lived in Jackson TNMade many a trip from Millington TN to Jackson.I met Pete at Granville Hestors old place Big Bear 2nd oldest facility in AL by time It finally closed down was the oldest.Roy I lived pretty close to had some really good Albanys used to drink coffee and talk fowl with him he was traveling to Red Arrow back then schedule fell on my working weekends so never got to see him show. Anyone got pictures of them would love to see them Back then I was around alot of cockers that are considered famous I as the old southern saying goes (I was walking in tall cotton) and didnt even know it-LOL-If I had woulda had a bunch of good pictures-Woulda looked like a Whos who of Southern Cocking-Jim

    Dick Kleberg was a friend of my Grandfathers. I don't know the date but I do know that Kleberg flew or was flown here to New York and bought fowl from my Grandfather. He could not get over how the roads here were curved so much compared to the ones in Texas!

    Re: Famous breeders

    Seems like there is a trend with the famous breeders from today and yesterday also for tomorrows breeders im sure. I have noticed that most if not all of the so called famous breeders that we know of seem to have a rock star kind of feel in their names. Seems that if you didn't have a cool name or you don't have a cool name that flows, then you probably were not a famous breeder or well known breeder. Examples: Sweater Mcguinnes, Duke Hulsey, Sanford Hatch, Lacy, etc... Just a quick take on a few that came to my mind, you can't honestly say that those are not "cool" "rock star" breeder names.. Right?? Or am i just tripping on this spliff?? So, lets see who could remember those cool named breeders of any era...!!

    William McRae died Sunday , May 24, 1987, at Baptist Medical Center, after an extended illness.
    Mr. McRae was truly a legend in his time. He was not only a great breeder of gamefowl, but a very special friend to his fellowmen in the gamefowl business.
    Survivors: include one sister, Elsie Mohundro of Memphis; four brothers; Otey, Edward, and Alvis McRae, all of Tishomingo and Clarence of Cartersville, Georgia.
    Wiliam McRae and Blondie Rollan bred together from 1954 to 1986. He bred the famous Democrat bloodline of gamefowl which has been fought all over the United States and the Islands with much success. Mr. Rollan named them for Mr. McRae, He picked up the name ‘Democrat” from the Nixon-Kennedy debates. He also bred what he called the dart fowl for the long knife that was famous in Hawaii. The Democrat fowl are still very much in demand because of their fighting abilities.
    He also designed a roosting hut for string walk cocks, which are the best thing I’ve seen anywhere. Several big-time game breeders are using these huts. Mr. McRae also designed a hitch for string walk cocks which is widely used. His many accomplishments are too numerous to list in an article.
    Above all, Mr. McRae was a friend to most everyone he came in contact with. There is nothing he wouldn’t help you with and he never wanted any payment or praise. All of his neighbors really liked and respected him for his kindness, honesty and willingness to be a good neighbor himself. He was always honest and straightforward will all his friends and neighbors.
    Mr. McRae helped me with several projects. He was always there when I needed a friend. I’ll never forget his advice, kind words, and deeds. There is no way I could have repaid him in a lifetime.
    He will be missed and will be thought of for a long, long time. His family can take comfort in knowing he was truly the best he could be in his business and in his personal life.

Not the one's that cheated and poisoned their way to the top!

    i got some hatch fowl from sammy and they are very good fowl... cheating.. thats hard to accuse somebody of that without seeing it with your own eyes. tell us how he cheats. i have seen him show many times and seen no signs of poison or flat gaffs like ive heard many people accuse him of.. he has to be a good breeder, he bred and raised and showed his own fowl and back when legal won cocker of year at sunset 3 years in row

    Speak of great breeders and one shows up on thread! I remember seeing some fowl that couldn't be whipped at Mid America and Texoma and they were in your hands Mr. Slavin. Hope all is well with you and you are correct. Roy Jones, Jr. is a great fighter and a good guy, but a famous breeder he is not!
