    They come grey and brown red, my father had them for years. A little on the slow side but very game , alot of bottom. I know of a guy in new jersey that has some still.

    I still breed the Speeders,both Grey and Brown-Red. As Frederick said they were originated by my Great Grandfather Phil Marsh. I will try to post their history later today.

The only similiarity I see here is the cock is grey but thats where it ends.

    I sometimes wonder if you're secretly a masochist graves, you seem to set yourself up way too often......I know nothing of speeders but a simple 30 second google search was enough information to know you're bird is probably not a speeder.
