    Might try RedFox they are still in business. Don't know what quality they are now. Harrold has been gone for years.

    I doubt there’s one drop of TODAYS SUCCESS in that old blood.
    I’d be more focused on just getting your hands on a SUCCESSFUL family of fowl for TODAY.

    Mongoose. Lol. You always on here running your head. Either you know where some are or you don’t. If you don’t, keep your opinion to yourself because I don’t want to hear it. You feed what you want And I will do the same.

    Re: Who has the old school real red fox greys?

    Jaharr those greys still exist, I know of 2 individuals around my neck of the woods one is 83 and the other is 72 and they obtain direct from Harold when he was still very much alive, one fella has the pea comb red backs and the other has the straight comb regular greys silver back greys I seen them live they are hard whip, they are go go go with super khut, great attitudes, some of the gamest gamecocks i've seen, so some the old blood still around they are out there, those are some of the best kept secrets, might have to take to get to knowing a few more folks I know these fellas I know won't let a feather out , best bet is just keep searching around and eventually you might come across some that folks might let go of. But they are out there.

    Jaharr, I see many very nice GL, PC, red backed greys at the shows. But, I would bet they have little, to no RF blood in them. Be mindful of the peddlers and I would concentrate more on performance, the traits that the RF greys are know for as a family, that separate them from other grey families. Good luck and I hope you find what you're looking for.
    I would send don128 (post #3) a Private Message if I was looking for RF greys. Could be an excellent start and a great friendship.

    If you can find somebody with good Bennett's that's willing to sell then you've found the real deal Harold Brown Greys. Bob Bennett had some of the best. Not sure how his son has maintained them. Get U Sum gamefarm was advertising Bennett. They were still solid fowl a few years back.

    I'm pretty sure Larry Romero married Harold's daughter and has most of what Harold had when he was winning. Larry said he fed for Harold for 12 years before Harold died. I heard Larry has awesome Grey's so they may be what Harold had years ago. It's worth a call if nothing else.

    Larry has the silverback, straight combs. I donít know that he has the peahead, redbacks but a phone call will answer that.

    Nauvoo is correct on Larry, he still does have some that old blood. If you get the greys from Romero might as well get the mclean also as they come from Harold too and cross em and you will have solid fowl..just a thought..

    Larry didn't marry Harold's daughter, William Brown (Sonny) was Harold's son, his daughter Rochelle his running the farm and she's 60 years old. Harold would be 110 years old, his children are all passed away.

    To my knowledge the old school red fox greys are silver back and wings, green legged and straight comb. The gl, pc and red back and wings is after Harold Brown.

    I have the ones that comes 100% SC, gl and silver back. They have been really good for me. If they have been good for you and you like them that's what counts.

    Mongoose you know my buddy the old man. I’m pretty sure he still has it. Direct from Harold now they get crossed these days. Now that I think about. Those were used for long heels1.5 . I only see Muffs and White Hackles or The Old Squirrel crosses for 1.25. In a legal country I use Blueface and Brown Reds for long heel 1.5 and White Hackle for shorts. But there is a remnant out there
