    Some people don't know the what it means to have a pure line to get tha vigor!! The more I breed fowl and learn from mistakes and accomplishments you start to understand what it takes to maintain a line and keep them pure for crossing to attain that hybrid burst! I found out that closely inbred breeds when crossed to different inbred bloodline produce the best fowl!

    Re: Bruner Roundhead's

    I have a Bruner that was crossed over a Radio and boy does the boy have wits, speed, and plenty of feet. The draw back on my cross was he lacked in the height division but made up that ground with the earlier talents. Can't wait to properly age him and see how things turn out in about a year's time from now. I'll keep you all posted. YIS...

    Hi Lights Out

    The blue legs appear occasionally as throw backs. from the Grist Grady blood infused by both Allen and HH Cowan. If the blue legs occur more frequently than 0.5-1.0% it is possible, a more recent infusion, from somebody else.

    Did the cross Bruner X Cowan improve their temperament, besides their performance?

    Have you tried Bruner X Aseel or Bruner X White hackle?

    Any info. will be greatly appreciated.

    Yunke I don't agree on the blue legged pullet percentage. Jack Smith always got a higher percentage of blue legs than that. He told me if all else is equal put the blue legged hen in the brood pen over the white legged hen. Also I will get a blue legged rooster just like he said I would. The first trio Jack a Smith gave Billy Abbott was all blue legs.

    I get 2 out of 10 come blue legged. From what I notice the ones that came from Billy Abbott and Jimmy Williams seem to be gamer and have more bottom then the ones from Timberlane and they also tend to throw more blue leggs

    I like this one from Mike Thompson.


    Hi greenlegs, did the whole trio come from Mike Thompson or only the cock?

    The hens look darker than the Bruner hens I have had, mine were buff and wheaten.

    May he RIP.
    Greenlegs, all inbred/line bred families, need to be freshened up from time to time, in order to keep them performing up to par.
    As long as they are bred back to 15/16s of the original and maintain the traits characteristic to them, they are considered pure, for all practical purposes. More than likely GRP was referring to the strain not being 100% the same, as when TK willed it to Willis Holding.

    PS. It is not as easy to maintain a family or strain up to par, as it is to trash it.

    What is a pure RH game cock?

    IMHO: It is a PC cock regardless of feather or leg color that exhibits the following RH performance traits:


    1. Vigorous health

    2. Extreme alertness

    3. Superior ring generalship

    4. Accurate cutting ability

    5. Aggressive gameness from the beginning of the combat to the end.

    6. Bottom till victory or its last breath.

    Yunk, better look close at your infusing family, breeding back to 15/16 is essentially straight but if the family you are putting in has dirt it will show at a 1/16th

    Re: Bruner Roundhead's

    Adding new blood to an inbred family is a scary thing. I have done this usually to no good end. You MUST make test matings some time before you actually need them and test them hard before putting them into your breeding program permanently. Also you can't just take one pair of inbred fowl and expect the outcome to be perfect. The successful breeders of the past sure didn't make the families that have stood the test of time breeding this way. They had different matings within the same family to select from. By breeding this way, the fowl stay more healthy. I kept my Hugh Norman Lacys good for 21 yrs and they were inbred when I got them. They were still good when I had to quit because of health reasons. One drop of new blood can change everything about a chicken except maybe the way he looks.
