    (202)763-9601......had some rh i got from him direct when i started they were all terrible except one pullet he must have messed up and sold her.... i crossed her with a ruble stag "only hatch i had then" and all her young were great loved them all..... so try to get some little ones off him just so he might give you a good one

    Being a good breeder has alot to do with it but if a crook sends you junk then no matter what kind of breeder you are you can't breed good fowl. Maybe not all of the large breeders will do this and I don't believe Ray would on purpose. I once had some hatch chickens that was had picked from a large breeders yard and this guy makes a good living raising gamefowl and I would love to meet the GOOD BREEDER who could have made them even honest fowl!!

    I bought a trio of his clarets and they have done good for me. Theyre nothing fancy but add cut and brains to anything you crosss em to and get the job done. They were also ordered over the phone

    Think about it like this....

    not trying to fuss or argue..... just the way I see it
    I agree but if that first breeding of pure chicks from that trio gives you all runners then it is most likely he sold you junk.

    Exactly, the first generation off the main trio were bad no matter what I put with them but all the generations off the one good one were great

    It always amazes me that these legendary long time breeder/sellers would even have junk on their yard.

    Some of them can't raise enough to keep the orders full so they have outside farms where people raise for them and that's where the junk comes from.

    Re: Ray Alexander

    Wow!! this turn in to some chicken talk ha.
    meant no disrespect. I am happy he is with us and in good health, thank you for providing the contact info. I did call him and asked him if he had some Judge Lacy Roundheads and he said that he does have some, so I told him I will drive down to his farm in 2 weeks from now, he was very welcoming and said when ever your ready just call me and let me know you are coming.
    On a diferent note I have been looking for a pure Judge Lacy Roundhead trio for a wile now and I thought I have found it when I purchase a pair from Red Fox Farm talk to the lady owner Rochelle brown. and drove down to her farm to hand pick the pair, needless to say I was like a kid in a candy store and forgat all about checking the birds for defects, it never cross my mind because I was getting the birds from RED FOX FARM right! well we drove back to Charlotte and after aweek of having the birds in my house I'd picked up the rooster and he had the bigest dint on the brest bone and picked up the pullet and the same thing the 2 of them had a croocked breast bone, so I call her and she said that it was very normal because they sleep on the roost and the weight of the bird makes them get that croocked breast bone. After that answer I decided not to say anything else but can you please refund my money and I will send back your birds. she said ok and I got my money back. so after looking and asking I found out about Ray alexander roundhead, their are people out there selling this birds for $150 or $250 but why do that when you can go to the farm and pick them out straight from the breeder.

    Re: Ray Alexander

    Now, I have heard that Ray is the most honest person you can deal with. Having said this I have looked him up like crazy and found some of his pictures where he is visiting some farm in the philipines and he is on a scooter, now this means that he needs some help to deal with hes fowl, meaning other people have to handle the birds also. after the experiance i had with Red Fox I knew I needed to educate my self about what to look in a bird for breeding purposes because you can't rely on other people to get what you are looking for it is up to you to make sure you get what you need. So, one of the friends on my friend list on facebook is Kenny Troiano from California. and he's got this 2 books on gamefowl breeding, it is the best book out there with the best of info you could ever need, with this new tools I can go any farm and hand pick a bird and know that I am getting what I am looking for. Mr alexander is a great gamefowl breeder that knows what he is doing it would help if I know what I am looking for and have some knowledge about a good pair of gamefowl birds. fool me once shame on you, fool me twice chame on me. thank you guys for your help. I appologize for the bad speling it is in working progress.

    Hats off to Red Fox farm I guess for treating you so well to buy back the chickens you personally selected after an entire week. Shows how far they would go to please a customer.

    That is pretty impressive, most breeders wouldn't do that especially after hand picking your own birds.

    We bought trio from Ray Alexander years back through shipment. A Claret Broodcock and 2 roundhead hens with Wingband Eaglestrike and Legband Alexander Gamefarm. I just want to confirm you guys if these were authentic Ray Alexander fowl. Thanks

    Yes I was realy lucky that they took back their chickens, for a couple of days I thought I was stuck with a couple of $600 dollar culls. And in my opinion Kenny Troianos book is good for everybody in the planet that owns gamefowl.
