    Their really aint a way to know you fowls linege unless the guy you got them from told you . And as for a line of greys from mexico ? I don't think thats accurate I never heard of a famouse line of greys from mexico and its also illegal to pass birds from mexico to usa , it has bin done before but theirs no need sunce theirs alot better birds here then in mexico

    looks strait comb and i cant see but i think hes probably green legged if he is he proly a regular grey but this just an assumption with game chicken lineage its basicly impossible to tell a birds lineage from just seen it
