One week end they would have a roping or calf penning, the next a cock fight. They had winches to just pick the pit and bleachers up in the top of the arena. You just pulled in and found yourself a spot in your car, truck, van was your cock house. I had a big van open in the back but had carpet all around. Summer time I'd get a big cooler of block ice and open it and let a fan blow air across it to my cocks in their carry. Case covered with a black sheet. We were very comfortable. Anyway right beside that trophy sets another for a 6 cock derby held in 1987. Ronnie asked me what kind of derby I'd like the next year when he handed me the COTY trophy. I said a six cock. Weed out the lucky guys. So he give me my first tribute derby. The Louisiana Blue Special 6 Cock Derby. It was a good day and I'd brought me and my dads best cocks. I think it was my 5th fight and I met F. Holloway. He had a good team and was a tough competitor. He asked me how much I wanted to bet. I told him to make it light on yourself. He said how about 400 I said how about 500. That shocked him as we usually don't bet that much. He said OK and that I was in trouble because his cock was a four time winner and had whooped Craft and Pat Canfield this season. I didn't say anything but we'll see. I didn't tell him I had my dads infamous Knife cock. He had won his first fight in a big 6 cock derby at Milk Dairy, he'd won twice at sunset and 9 times at large derbies. My cocks were really sharp too as I'd had no problem in any match yet. After two pittings his cock was crippled. Holloway was distraught. That's when I told him about The Knife Cock. It was a great day with my dad and friends and 6 great cocks. We went on and won it by ourselves. Good memories of days gone by.
    As a cocker. You had a good life at it and a good story. I recommend you seek a publisher or an editor to published ur stories. It might help some people or begineers and oldies alike just reading it.

    Its a nice way sharing ur expertise. For me u are no. 1 than those legends.

    Still, iI salute you sir! Happy to read your experiences!

    Rick back in the 70's some good friends give me a stag. He was frost grey-boles jap/ traveler. I bred hIm to my mugs and as long as I had him his sons never lost their first fight. This was all long gaff. I fought a good bit for about 3 years in the long knife. None of these had any oriental blood in them. I have a 1/2 Rampury cock now I've bred to my hens. They are not slow. I've never witnessed asils that straight hate a rooster like these do. They are smart but do everything so fast you can't notice that part of their game.

    Re: Dale Mac Mugs

    What are your guys’ future breeding plans with these Mugs? I dont have any experience with them yet but before I make any crosses, I will follow in Gaff’s footsteps & make pures for broodstocks. I will also do as LaBlue suggests & cross colors. For example black x splash & black x blue or splash x black etc etc. I might be thinking too far ahead as I just put my eggs in the incubator this morning LOL! Im gonna single mate them as I do with all of my breeders & if I have extra pullets I might make some battle crosses with them.

    I'll let you know what I've learned over the last 50 years. The mug hen is the secret to producing those winners we all look for. The chances of you getting real good fowl are 3-4 times greater breeding the mug hen rather than the mug cock. Is peek from years of experience. If yo use the mug cock breed the pullets back to a mug cock. That will probably work.

    Yeah the game plan for me is simple. All the Mug stags I raise will be paired with a different colored Mug pullet. I got the eggs in netting according to their number, that way I dont bro/sis mate them. Of course theyre gonna have to meet or exceed my standards to make it to the brood pens first. I wont breed the Mugs on the rooster side unless its to a Mug. ALL smokey blue pullets will be bred back to the Mugs almost all the time. The only crosses I plan on making will be with my Black blend to the Black Mug pullets. Plans may change lol I also have a Grey blend that I want to cross to the Black Mug pullets hahaha thanks Del! Im telling you these DMM’s will be all over my yard & they aint leaving

    Mr. Del,

    Your response is greatly appreciated . . . and thank you much for taking the time.

    I am just a lowly guy who loves the sport from Cebu, Phils. living here in California.
    The reason for my inquiry is because i acquired Black Jap blood a few years back and been breeding them to my other lines with good success ... i'd say good, not great.
    What i observed though is that the crosses tend to slow down down a bit although the cutting, timing and smarts are there which is essential in LK.
    So I am looking for good cutting speed blood and hope to be able to sometime get hold of your Mug if you can spare any or maybe even just eggs to bring back to Philippines.

    No matter though, lowly or not, these days the competition in the Phils. has gotten extremely tough.

    Again, thank you much and GOD bless. . . .

    Rick

Around 5 she came out after I did my rounds my bro says that blue mug camd out go check her so I just got a cup of feed think she's hungry I'll feed her.

My guess he's out of a BR cock and a blue hen. Never got a white from a white. They always come blue or BR.

    id have to agree with LaBlue about the hen being the key. This applies to most if not all good blood lines.
    Ive personally experienced it by purchasing the best hens i could get my hands on and breeding a good cock over them. You can breed average cocks over good hens from quality families and still produce worthy stags.
    Breed a quality cock over an average or less than average hen and end up with sh#t.
    I got a friend who buys the prettiest cock birds, doesn't look much at the hens and he cant touch me............

    I read an article that i thought others might like to read, Theres a reason, but i find a lot don't take much notice

    I agree with you from the beginning of our conversation I think 3 years ago i dont hesitate to get a pair of mugs and when I got it i knew it was different from other breed then start showing them and cross them in my lines with excellent result now I am breeding lots of them. Anyway you are very lucky to see Mr. Mack in person which I envy you..lol

    With shipped eggs it is a hit and miss. You do not know how the postal service handle the eggs along the way. Also we do not know which eggs are fertile or not. I wish you the best with them 7. 7 is better than nothing at all.

    I was fully aware of this upon ordering eggs. I have read this whole thread & saw the results of the people that ordered eggs. Im fine with 7, I’d be fine with 2 pairs or even just a trio. Like you said its better than nothing at all. No problems here. This unique Mug blood of Del’s is a privilege to have in my yard. Happy mugging everybody. & thanks again Del.
