    the truth about Del Mak!!!

    Well boys here it is, the truth about lablue! Well the truth is, I got up at 2 am. Drove 6 1/2 hrs one way to meet the sorry rascal we know as lablue, and I got say I really enjoyed meeting the ol' hound. We walked his yard looking over the apply and orange crates he had scattered around lol I'm just kiddn guys! He don't got no apple crates with chickens in em. What he did have was very healthy fowl. Molt or not his fowl looked very good I was very impressed with his place. He made us feel rite at home. Even fed us lunch, which I didn't expect him to do. I appreciate the hospitality he and his lovely wife showed us. He is a first class fella in my book! He let me hand pick the pair of my choice. We set around swapping stories of days gone by, and if I hadnt had to drive so far we probly would stayed a lil longer. We arrived a lil after 9am and had to leave by 1:30 to get back home. I will say the time racesd by felt like I had no sooner got ther and it was time to head home. We took a picture together holden the pair he let me select. Maybe some one can post it for us lol anyway. It was a darn good day and I look forward to going back to visit! By the way it was no easy task selecting a pair cause everything he had was really nice!!!!!!

    Re: the truth about Del Mak!!!

    I went to Dels a few years ago.... had a great time. I already had the mugs but spent the day out there anyway.. I was treated like family, or how I would treat my family( maybe not some of em).. some of the healthiest fowl I've ever seen.. built like tanks!!!Even got to see an old hen ride around on a sheep all day.. it was a great memory and had a blast.. Del married up for sure...lol. He's probably the best story teller I've ever sat down and listened too! Way too many trophies in that house but I see now how he won em.. Great Fowl from an even better Man.. Thanks for the help over the years Del. Much appreciated

    Del is a first class guy. He and his wife are great folks and the hospitality is as good as the fowl.

    You got to be a big ol country boy cos Del is a big fella and you're right up there.
    You'll be hard pressed to meet a better man he helped me get on my feet and it actually cost him money.
    I hope you like them Mugs they look real nice.
    A special mention for his good wife. She is so accommodating in every way.
    Please Post more pics if you have any.

    Del this just food for thought.But have you ever bred your mugs back to a bacon warhorse.the original mugwumps where 1/2 bacon warhorse. I was wondering if you had ever tried that cross. I myself have and well if you can you should try it.Man Oh man they make some roosters.

    Re: the truth about Del Mak!!!

    I took a trip to Louisiana a week or so ago, had to go help a dog buddy of ours do some things and had to back the next day. It was an 8 hr drive one way from where im at. I messaged Mr Del in hopes that it wasmt much out of the way from where i was traveling we went straight thru MS thru Jackson. My message gkt to him to late but come to find out it was a good ways from the route i took. I got to my buddies around 7:30 or 8 their time. Soon as i have a day or two off again im gonna try and go visit the MUG man himself lol. He seems like one of the True old timers of this Great sport. Not trying to call you old now Mr Del, you know what i mean.

    Funny you. Should ask and say. 15 or more years ago I loaned a mug hen for a season. He bred it to a Warhorse cock. Raised 4 stags. He asked me to feed and handle them at 11 months old all win and we won a little derby 20-30 entries. Well he give me one and we cocked them out the next year he said let's put them in another 4 cock. Wwe did and win 4 again none getting hurt at all. I give mine back to him and they all got killed in a night attack. I have a straight Warhorse now that I'm gonna try it against n.

    Re: the truth about Del Mak!!!

    I myself have them. I do well with them. I don't bred them every year but I do bred them from time to time. I remember pap breeding a Madigan grey cock to a black bacon warhorse hen.he was an 18 time winner.the last time he was fought.he met a bird and they had a pair of bayonet gaffs on him well.the gaffs bent up in he's legs.he had to beat he's opponent to death.some may say bull but that's a true story.

    The saying is supposed to go " little ones bunch up , big ones line up " .... these two big ones held something behind their backs and bunched up ... even I'm not taking those odds.

    For all the followers of del Mac. I suggest a yearly cookout. Maybe one day I will attend. And laugh all our internet differences. Bring some beers and bbqs. Seeing the men behind the handles might be awesome.

    One cocker for all and all cockers for one! Unity brings us somewhere!

    The truth is. You really looks like father and son when I first viewes the picture. Am just shy to say it. But the smile, the chin. Lol and shape face is maybe from the morher. Lol

    all along i thought rev was a filipino. Wrong thoughts. My bad.

    Anyway, spring break or summer is a good dates. 1 or 2 then maybe 5 to 10. It will increased as the years go by.

    Some memory lanes should be stamped. The last of the cockfighters. Lol

    Good day yall gentlemen!
