Hi my name is Hunter Gillins. I had chickens back in high school after an answer to a dance left me with 3 chicks. Two silkies (one black and one gray) and a partridge cochin bantam. The black silkie died a few weeks later, but the other two lived for several years with me till I moved to a place that didn't allow chickens. The Partridge I just found out is still alive and would be about 8 years old now, but the gray silkie got attacked by a dog. It has been many years since I have had chickens but after my wife's great grandpa past away we got 4 of his chickens. He has bred this line of chickens for over 85 years and from what I understand has became known around the world for them. I don't know much about the name of his line, since I only meet him three times but my wife wanted to keep her grandpa's life work in the family. I have only heard of them as "Grays", but know they are show game chickens. We got two of his signature chickens but both are very young and the two older ones are crossed with a "Red" to increase genetic diversity. I am told that there offspring will be his signature chickens, but a stronger line again, that he has done this many times over they years. These are the older two And these are the younger two signature chickens (smaller being another roo) As of right now they are all together but will have to separate the the two roos when the one gets older. Any advice on how to take care of show game chickens, or any idea of a possible type of chickens these are would be very welcome. We plan on raising them to keep the line in the family, to get a few eggs and possible some meat if we get over crowded (if they are good to eat).
