    He was partners with Ted McLean and Hugh Norman. He had the hatch fowl of Ted, Green and Yellow Leg. Clarets, Butchers and Choclate Grey's of Hugh Norman. I didnt know any of these gentlemen, but thats what I'm reading in a 08 article of Grit and Steel.

    he wrote a article on maintaining a line and he said when you find a family you like to find another family with similar style and looks and get a cock. breed the family pure as long as you can and have a sub family that is 3/4that family and 1/4 outside cock, then when they get to inbred you can use the 3/4 to infuse and freshen them back up.

    I know he had a breeding book out at one time but I haven't read it. His fowl were the Mclean's which were from Ted, the Chocolate Grey's from Hugh Norman and his Butcher-Clarets which were one family. With his passing I do not know what become of his breeding manual......
