Glad he did I dont know what level of his birds had Shelby's blood in them. I saw some of Shelby birds 25 years ago and these birds did not look like them. Any way I have had them almost 30 years and only long back ,deep keeled birds up on their leg where ever used by me. They are tight feathered not fluffy and I am glad they are as there are people who are interested in my hackle and saddle feathers of my males for Tie Flying. My bantam hackles make good tails for flys for Salt Water Flys and the hackles of the large birds make great hackles for the salt water fly Whistler and Seducer.
