    The Red Quill stag was bred last month to three of my 1/2 Jap - 1/2 Claret pullets, but didn't get many chicks, probably due to him being a weak contributor of sperm 'coz he is still young. Better luck with him in May I hope.
    EPG5 I am ignorant on the this Red Quill line and was wondering if you can share a little info on this line. What is so special about this breed?

    Re: RedQuills

    In the history of the LACY RH, it was stated that an infusion of the Red Quill blood was made. Apparently, this was Judge Lacy's secret ingredient in producing a roundhead strain that is more of a flyer and a deadly single stoker. They say back then the LACY Roundhead was a hard target for the opponent that's why they usually won clean.

    I'm hoping the so called 'Marvin Wilson' line of Red Quills will have a positive effect on what I breed them to. It's all trial and error; that's what breeding game fowl is about. THERE IS NO SURE THING.

    Re: RedQuills

    redquills are good for crossing speed into your power. theyre very fast and really nervous acting birds, so fast that they use most of their energy the first 3 minutes or so of the fight and if you havent won by then youre prob not going to

    Johnny Moore and Roy Guyer were friends he and Roy had some of the same fowl I lived not far from Roy back in the mid 70's Roys favorite fowl at that time was his Albanys and what got my attention on them was they would throw a pumpkin one now and then out of his family.He shipped Reb Williamson some of them he loaned out some of the hens and I was later told was his partner well known for his Albanys his Albany will also throw pumpkin ones. I never found out the source of the pumpkin color but was striking and they were sure nuff good ones.-Jim

    Re: RedQuills

    Yes she very well could be grey, every biddie I've hatched out of her comes out chocolate colored instead of completely black... But so far out of 8, no yellow biddies what so ever thanks guys for your thoughts!

    She's a redquill x blue. If she didn't have blue plumage she'd look like the leiper cross that IceBen posted.

    IceBen - your redquill cross hen didn't inherit the pattern genes from the Redquill side. So she is what you call a lemon blue (blue version of the Brown Red pattern). The cock of this color looks like a yellow and blue version of a Brown Red.

    Hello Jim,

    Here is a picture of the granddaughter of the old Redquill ace cock you gifted me a while back. Her mom is the daughter of your old RQ cock (she is 1/2 RQ 1/2 Wingate Brownred) and I bred her to your Brownred stag (CheroCreek Brownred). This baby pullet is the only surviving offspring of that mating. I really regret loosing that old RQ cock, never got the chance to breed him to my Buzzsaw hen. The guy where I got my Buzzsaw from got his start direct from Charlie Eidt some 40+ years ago and he is also familiar with the same story you shared about those Redquill/Buzzsaw crosses of Charlie Eidt.

     
    And here is a pumpkin Albany stag I'm planning to breed to that Redquill pullet next year. Looks like an interesting blend to me. What do you think my friend?
