    Re: Who knows about the cajun kelso fowl

    I purchased a stag from Philip Ownby "Mntman" of South Pittsburg TN, the stag is now a cock and made the cut into my brood pen. I don't know if Philip created the cajun kelso line, but the blood is exceptional. High station, long legged, good sized, high flying fowl and game to the core. I would have to say the best line I have owned. The pic does no justice of how beutifull these kelso are

    Re: Who knows about the cajun kelso fowl

    Thanks fellas, I have told Dan all I know about them but I will add it to the board for others to enjoy. I met a good friend in Alabama by the name of Glenn Whisenhunt. His dad was a very wealthy man and was always on the look out for some good birds. He found the Cajun Kelsos in North Carolina....they were bred and maintained by an old man there by the name of Cedric Burton. I have not been able to find anything out about him because he passed away in the 90s and was evidently not a big time cocker.....but he sure had good birds. Mr. Burton told my partner that the original bloodline was white leg, peacomb, and dark red. After years of breeding, he added additional Kelso blood to them....it was yellow leg, peacomb, light neck like the cock in the first picture. I have never tried to breed for feather or leg color...just performance. They will come peacomb/straight comb...yellow leg/white leg, and light/dark....pretty much like any Kelso line. My partner Glenn really did well with them in the 90s winning alot of shows....I saw him win 23 or 24 straight shows with the Kelso blood crossed on Murphys into tuff competition. He sold them all to me in 1998 due to his work and his family. I have both the Cajun Kelsos and the Murphys that he bought from Mr. Burton and I have just tried to maintain them. I wish I could say I originated them, but I can't. The only thing I have added to the Kelsos is some Robbie White Kelso.....and that is just a small side of the family. 80% of what I have is the original blood that I got in 1998.

    Oh, and by the way....the Blackhammer Doms are exceptional as well. They are a solid bloodline that will have a home here as long as I raise gamefowl. Good Doms are hard to find and these have all the qualities I have looked for for years.

    Well, that completely makes sense now. I saw my partner win over some big entries in Alabama in the 90s. One fellar from Ky comes to mind that had some really good Hatch/Greys there one day. We were both 3-0 in a 5 cock show...the guy had won impressively all day. That Murphy/Kelso just sucked him up and spit him out. That old boy was tore up and wanted to buy something from my partner....but his begging was falling on deaf ears.

    I never got to meet Mr. Burton...if you have any stories or anymore history on these birds, let me know.

    And as you mentioned, the Murphys are extremely good. Back when it was legal, they were tough, game, and hit hard. The only difference to me in them and the Kelsos is speed and power.....that is why they are such a good blend.

    I tried to bump this one up yesterday, but for some reason it did not work. I love these Cajun Kelsos and will have them as long as I breed chickens.

    I would like to Bump this up, I got some of the Murphy blood off of Phil, as my Poynor Murphys cross really well on with other familys of Murphys. The Chickens Phil sent me were wonderful and I have been interested in his Kelsos ever since we talked on the phone.
